Founded in 1965, the Lomas camps was the first bilingual Preschool in Mexico to use the Montessori Method. We currently have enrolled approximately 180 students and a teaching staff of 30 education professionals.
The community is made up of nine groups that include: 2 Babies’ Rooms, 5 Children’s House groups and 2 Pre-First groups.
We use the Montessori Method in English from Babies’ Room to Pre-First. We have highly trained personnel that contribute to the comprehensive and academic education of each of our students on a daily basis. All of our teachers are Montessori Guides, with bachelor’s degrees in pre-school education and have a high level of English. We are authorized as part of the Department of Public Education (SEP) system .
Teaching-learning takes place in a specially-designed environment. Much of our work is based on our Values Program and social service that seeks to enrich the education of all of our students.
The Lomas campus works in close cooperation with parents, promoting learning through a carefully prepared system. Parents can bring their children to school and pick them up, thus favoring a closer relationship between home and school.
Due to the age of the children, we do not have a school bus program.
The Lomas facilities include 845 m2 of built-up space.
The campus has nine classrooms: two Babies’ Rooms, five Children’s House rooms equipped with computers and two Pre-First classrooms, which are equipped with electronic boards and computers.
The Lomas campus has a music/art room and two classrooms for Oral English.
The campus is also equipped with a library where our students can read books or check them out to take home. We work hard to instill a love of reading in our students from an early age.
The campus infirmary is staffed with a full-time paramedic and is open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Outdoors is a covered area where athletic classes are given and games are played. In addition there is a playground area.
We also have a lunch service for the Babies’ Rooms and Children’s House groups designed by a nutritionist to provide our students with a balanced diet.

Montessori materials provide children the opportunity to learn through their senses and to explore their abilities by means of a variety of challenges that they offer.
The Pre-First program takes place totally in English. The purpose of this program is to consolidate the foundation that the children developed in the Montessori program and introduce them to the Balanced Literacy program which incorporates notions of language, mathematics and science, through critical and creative thinking, independent work and collaborative efforts.
The children in Preschool and Pre-First have Oral English classes daily, where games, songs and poetry are used to improve their abilities in the language. In Physical Education classes we use a specialized program designed to achieve psychomotor development in children of that age.
Our program includes an introduction to music. Using a variety of instruments, students develop their sense of rhythm and their ability to recognize melodies, thus awakening a love for music.
The Reading Club promotes an interest in reading from an early age. We believe that this prepares children to better respond to the needs of their world in the future.
The Peterson Schools offer a program in which children practice listening to others, learning to face their frustrations and communicating their ideas, thus developing their awareness and their self-confidence.
Our admissions process is open throughout the year, subject to availability of space.
