Welcome to LMS, Maria!
Maria is a kindergarten teacher. She developed her research in “The Importance of Developing Autonomy in Pre-School Education”. Before studying pedagogy she studied theater for seven years, and was always in contact with children - having the concern that children feel capable and confident about themselves, progressing as responsible and independent human beings. Maria looks forward to grow as a Montessorian and hopes to be able to support the children when they need it, so they can achieve what they want in life and learn what really matters to them. Maria, we bet you will!

A Maria quer crescer como técnica Montessori e espera ser capaz de dar apoio quando necessário, para que estas crianças alcancem o que desejam na vida e o que realmente lhes importa. Maria, apostamos que serás capaz!

Welcome to LMS, Isabel!
Isabel always wanted to be an actress. She studied drama, teached drama to children, and with children she fell in love with co-creating dreams because it is in childhood that we find the magical world of creation. Working as a teacher in East Timor she learned about Montessori and realized that "play" isnt´t confined to theatre, but should be everywhere in child learning. Here is Isabel, ready to play with us!

Bem-vinda à LMS, Isabel!
A Isabel sempre quis ser atriz. Estudou teatro, ensinou teatro a crianças, e foi com as crianças que se apaixonou pela co-criação de sonhos, porque é na infância que encontramos o mundo mágico da criação. Ao trabalhar como professora em Timor Leste aprendeu sobre o método Montessori e percebeu que "brincar" não se limita ao teatro, mas deve estar em todo o lado na aprendizagem da criança. Aqui está a Isabel, pronta para brincar connosco!

Sunny days brought abundance to our garden and we can't resist to explore. We need to touch everything to understand life!

Os dias de sol trouxeram abundância ao nosso jardim e não conseguimos resistir a explorar. Precisamos de tocar em tudo para perceber a vida!


Storytelling isn't just books. It takes trees, birds singing and enthusiastic guides.

Contar histórias não é só livros. São precisas árvores, pássaros a cantar e guias entusiasmados.


Welcome back dear students!
You arrive just in time for spring!

Bem-vindos de volta queridos estudantes!
Chegam mesmo a tempo da primavera!

Some little explorers found a "maria café" in the garden. This arthropod is also known as the portuguese miliped, as it is native to the southern Iberian Peninsula. These fellow invertebrates are most commonly found in the cooler, damper and darker places within their environment. Millipedes inhabit areas under rocks, in the leaf litter, in rotting logs and occasionally in burrows which are known as micro-habitats. Hedgehogs are one of their main predators... So let's be alert, as we might make more exciting discoveries these days!

Catching and gently handling small animals is an important part of exploring the outdoors. Let's go out!

Alguns pequenos exploradores encontraram uma "maria café" no jardim. Este artrópode é também conhecido como milípede português, por ser nativo do sul da Península Ibérica. Estes amigos invertebrados são mais comumente encontrados nos lugares frios, húmidos e escuros. Os milípedes vivem debaixo de pedras, nas folhas em decomposição, em troncos apodrecidos e ocasionalmente em pequenas tocas, conhecidos como micro-habitats. Os ouriços caixeiros são um dos seus principais predadores... Vamos estar atentos, pois podemos ter mais descobertas excitantes em breve!

Capturar e manusear pequenos bicharocos com cuidado é uma parte importante da exploração ao ar livre. Vamos lá para fora!
