Morningstar Montessori School5

We love Morningstar Montessori! It is a wonderful, supportive community that has caring, compassionate teachers. Our son has grown so much in both independence and confidence. He gets to play and learn outside, plant a garden, take care of animals, have music and yoga classes, learn important hand-eye coordination skills, and so much more! The staff does a great job communicating what my son is working on each day and we look forward to hearing about the fun things he does!
My two older children attended Morningstar several years ago, and we are now back again with my youngest son. We absolutely love the warm and caring environment and the way that all of our children have thrived at Morningstar. The school teaches children to be responsible and respectful while taking care of their selves and their belongings. With many pets including chickens, rabbits, fish, geckos and a turtle, as well as an outdoor garden and compost area, my children truly get a fully immersed experience in what it means to take care of their environment and others!
This is a wonderful preschool/kindergarten. I am so glad that I found them a few years ago. Both my son and my daughter attended Morningstar and they had a profound impact on their little lives. My children learned respect and responsibility as well as empathy and compassion. The staff are amazing and extremely sweet and caring. My daughter is very independent and has been since the age of two. Morningstar Montessori was the perfect place for her to go to preschool, they encourage independence and diligence and she loves being able to do all the difference activities by herself. I strongly encourage you to visit Morningstar Montessori if you are looking for a high quality preschool. I have not seen another preschool that compares!
Morningstar Montessori is a fantastic school, with amazing teachers who truly implement all aspects of Montessori teaching into their curriculum and activities. My daughter has excelled in her scholastic abilities as well as learning important basic life skills, like being responsible for your personal belongings (lunch, shoes, cleaning up after yourself, etc). The school has a very homey yet orderly environment, with chickens, bunnies, turtles and fish, a garden where the kids learn about planting and growing vegetables, composting, and a great play area inside and out. Another plus is the flexibility of scheduling, and being able to offer full time or part time hours. I also like how the children interact with each other in different age groups, so that the young ones can learn from the older students and the older students experience what its like to be a mentor to the younger ones. Morningstar Montessori is far superior to any other pre-k/kindergarten school I have experienced. You'll know right when you walk in the door that this is the place for you!
This school did wonders for my child. It is a perfect traditional Montessori School that allows each child to grow learn and discover independence equally. My child really learned to love learning, she loved coming to school each day. The staff were all very kind and caring and truly created a school and environment for the children. The school is also very clean and organized which was always a pleasant sight to see. Parent involvement is a huge part of the atmosphere and the parent community is great, we made many friends and relationship with other families of Lincoln.
This school provided a nurturing environment for my daughter. Her confidence and eagerness to learn will follow her as she moves to a different school. I am thankful for the one-on-one attention she received from all of her teachers. Morningstar has created an ideal Montessori environment allowing each student to grow, discover and be creative!
