Our story

The Lulus Montessori journey began in 2009 when Miss Lulu, a passionate educator, embarked on a dream to create a nurturing space for children to grow, learn, and play. In a heartfelt interview from 2019, Lourdes Quiros Lamadrid (Miss Lulu) shares her inspiring story.
Born in San Diego, CA, to Mexican parents and raised in Ensenada, Mexico, Miss Lulu learned early on the importance of family, values, education, dedication, and hard work. Her journey in education began at Centro de Enseñanza Montessori (CEM) in Tijuana, where she discovered her passion for the Montessori method.
After gaining valuable experience as a Toddler Assistant at Rancho Santa Fe Montessori School in San Diego, Miss Lulu pursued her dream of owning a school. Despite facing challenges, including financial struggles and finding the right location, she remained determined. In 2009, at the age of 26, Miss Lulu took a leap of faith and founded Lulu’s Montessori Bilingual Education School.
Named affectionately by the students as "Miss Lulu School," Lulu’s Montessori has grown into a thriving community dedicated to providing quality bilingual education in a nurturing environment. Miss Lulu's dedication to her students and her vision for holistic child development sets Lulu’s Montessori apart. Through her hard work, perseverance, and unwavering passion, Miss Lulu turned her dream into reality, creating a place where children flourish academically, artistically, physically, and emotionally.
Reflecting on her journey, Miss Lulu fondly recalls moments of joy and fulfillment, such as seeing her students' smiles each morning and receiving heartfelt gratitude from parents. She acknowledges the support of her family, friends, mentors, teachers, and the entire Lulu’s Montessori community, who have contributed to its success.
As Lulu’s Montessori continues to grow and inspire, Miss Lulu remains grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of children and families. Her dedication to providing a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment ensures that every child at Lulu’s Montessori has the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential, fulfilling the dream she once held close to her heart.
