My daughter is currently attending the toddler program at Kinderhouse Montessori on Flanders Rd. Here's why I like it: 1. My daughter is well cared for and is learning every day. I go to work each day secure in the knowledge that my daughter is happy at school, and is looked after and taught by responsible, caring staff. 2. I view the principal and teachers as a resource to help us raise our daughter. For example: when we want to start something new, such as potty training, or when we want to help my daughter stop nonconstructive behaviors, we discuss approaches and move forward on the same page. 3. The school genuinely has the best interests of the child at heart and the policies are created with the child's best interests in mind. 4. The school holds parent seminars to share Montessori practices, for parent education, and to help parents better connect with the teachers and vice-versa 5. It is a multi-cultural environment and the school celebrates this aspect of the student community
Top notch school! With a background in education, I felt the Montessori method was truly the best for developing my children both educationally and socially. After much research, I found that Kinderhouse was a "true" Montessori school amongst many who claim to be but are not. We've been with the school for 4 years and this school has far exceeded all of my expectations.
I have been sending my 2 children to KHM for 5 yrs. No school like it! My oldest is doing fantastic in Elementary now. Not only is she well adjusted above target academically, but she is caring, kind and independent. Our kids are also on target with eating real wholesome food. This was initiated and reinforced at KHM. The kids all eat real food here. Eating calmly and with manners. The facilities are clean, natural and inviting. Staff is friendly and very loving towards kids. Overall, my kids have done fantastic at this school. I am confident any potential parent reading this could feel comfortable sending their kids here. It really helps to have the place where you send your kids during the day reinforce the values you have in your home and that they are safe and well taken care of.
My wife and I have been sending our children to Kinderhouse Montessori for several years and are very pleased with the progress our children have made there. The Montessori methods have proven to be as wonderful as I have read about for our children and I could not be happier with this school.
We have been sending our two children (5 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old) to Kinderhouse Montessori for over two years. We are very impressed with the teachers who maintain a wonderfully calm and productive environment for the children in the classroom. The school is superb in supporting both the academic and the social development of our children.
We started sending our daughter to Kinderhouse Montessori earlier this year. She has only been in the program a few months and already we can see a huge difference. She is only 2 but already she can put her own shoes on and pick out her clothes for the day. She helps set the table at dinner and can prepare small meals for herself! Her language skills have improved tremendously - she speaks Spanish and English - and her vocabulary has quadrupled since she started. As far as education, this school is the best there is! The teachers work with my child on her concentration skills and her attention and she is a marvel to behold. At home, she can sit on her own and do puzzles for hours. When we first started here, I did not know about the Montessori methods but this school adheres to them as they were meant to be. They allow children freedom of explorations of their environment and teach them how to live in our society. They help with potty training and their communication is superb - a note goes home every day, stating what snack was, what activities were done and a personal note from the teacher. I have never heard of any other school that does that! No better school in SD!
This is a great school. The teachers are caring and skilled at Montessori way of teaching. Would definitely recommend this school to a friend.
Our daughter's teacher in a top rated public school enquired where she had her preschool training. It was Kinderhouse. It was not a traditional day care facility with flexible timings, but was an institution for whole child development including behavioral and academic skills. Mrs. Yogi Patel made several articulate presentations with insights into child psychology, and each time, we went back home with nuggets of wisdom that made us mull over the development of our child. The enrollment packet was upfront regarding the school policies. The school believes that children can get the most out of Montessori education if they follow a daily schedule of activities and are allowed enough time to absorb the curriculum. Hence, the scheduled drop-off and pick-up times, as flexible timings would have caused distraction. Different program options and associated fees were also spelt out. There was an option of enrolling for the summer program right at the beginning of the school year at a discounted rate. We used our discretion here if, during a given year, we were not aware in advance of our summer plans. We never had any unexpected situations as far as fees or schedules were concerned.
Have had an excellent experience with Kinderhouse Montessori over the past few years. Our daughter is thriving and learning and we feel that the staff works with us to optimize her learning experience. Highly recommend!
My kid was at the Racho Bernardo facility. Everything was so nice at the beginning. The teachers smiled to me and asked my child's situation. To my surprise, After I paid $700 for monthly half day care, there were more and more fees came to me every week. Don't fool me!!
