Dear Parents:

I was 8-years-old when my mother, Ms. Lam, completed her Montessori training. I spent my whole childhood immersed in this education. Now, as a mother of two, Iā€™m eternally grateful to my mother for having ingrained Montessori in me. 

Ms. Lam Montessori is celebrating its 30th birthday this year. With 5 campuses in Taipei, Taiwan, it provides one of the best pre-school educations in Asia. I'm extremely proud to announce Ms. Lam Montessori's first international location in the beautiful neighborhood of Williamsburg. We will be adhering to the same strict AMI standards. It is our mission to support the child's full development and to "Follow the Child." 

We are a bilingual English-Mandarin Immersion School. Whether your child has been exposed to Mandarin or not up to this point, upon full completion of our program, you can expect to see him/her reading and writing in both English and Chinese, just like the thousands of children who have done so by the time they have graduated from Ms. Lam Montessori school. 

I also invite you to take a look at Ms. Lam Montessori's other five locations, by visiting You can immerse your child in an excellent summer program there in Taiwan! 

I look forward to meeting you and your child. Please contact us to schedule a tour at our Williamsburg location.

Sincerely Yours, 

Stephanie Woo
