About Les Lilas


Les Lilas French Bilingual Community School offers a unique approach to education that’s second-to-none in helping children develop the necessary skills for success in the classroom… and in life.

Our mission

To provide children with a strong academic foundation and foster a lifelong joy of learning through a dual Montessori/French curriculum.

Our philosophy

We believe academic success starts with recognizing and respecting a child’s innate curiosity and desire to explore. We also believe that every child deserves a high-quality, challenging education, designed to meet his or her own developmental needs.

How it works

Les Lilas combines the Montessori pedagogy with the well-structured French curriculum administered by the French ministry of education.

Les Lilas

The French Montessori School of Kirkland


We welcome children ages 3 to 6 years and (beginning in 2016/2017) ages 6 to 9 years, into a prepared environment and an atmosphere of trust and respect. Children work with Montessori materials, specifically designed to be self-directed and encourage individualized development. Each child makes free choices and achieves to his or her own potential, guided and supported by teachers.

At Les Lilas, activity and discovery create the ideal setting for intellectual and social development. We encourage partnerships between parents and staff in order to make children feel “at home” when they’re away from home, and to help meet the individual needs of every child.
