We have two children currently enrolled, ages 3 and 4. They both started in the Toddler Program when they were 18 months old. I love this school! There is continuity, rather than high teacher turn-over, which speaks volumes about how the staff is treated. You can tell they love their jobs and it shows in the way they interact with the children. Most importantly, they love the kids and treat them all with respect. One of my kids has a learning disability and they work with him and provide him the extra he needs to succeed. The thing I like the most is that they correct bad behaviors with positive reinforcement, love and consistency; they take the time to explain why the behavior is not okay. Not sure why the daughter of the reviewer below was miserable, but my kids love it there. I would highly recommend them.
The staff and teachers are wonderful! We felt like a part of a family while our children attended school here. They have both gone on to public school and excelled because of the foundation they received at Elk Grove Montessori.
