I had my daughter in a traditional daycare from 1 to almost 3. Though the teachers there tried their best, they had a hard time keeping my very active daughter engaged, and my daughter just didn't seem to take well to traditional learning methods like flash cards and worksheets. She learns quickly by association, demonstrated very early in life numerous times when she'd surprise us with something she'd figured out on her own - door locks being a paramount example. I signed her up at this school after taking her on two tours...I had done some research on the Montessori method, and it seemed as if it would be a good fit for my daughter's personality and innate independence. She's been here two weeks and the behavior turnaround has been truly astounding. Her behavior issues are working themselves out each day she's there, and she now happily announces that we're "going to see Miss Sarah!" every morning when we drive past her old daycare. I know from seeing the change in her and the amazing things she's done in just two weeks here that moving her here was the right choice for us. Everyone at the school is nothing short of amazing, and I highly recommend this school to anyone!
We were taking our son to a "traditional" child care center. We decided to switch him because there was constant turnover and we saw a new face in his room every day. We didn't know much about Montessori. We are SO happy we came to Bright Horizons. The staff does not have a high turnover rate (our first question during the tour). We feel the teachers communicate well with us and that they are open to our needs and suggestions. We love that they have workshops for the parents about how to incorporate Montessori teachings at home and to improve literacy. What I also love is they serve healthy snacks to the kids. My previous place was giving him frozen breaded fish sticks, and Bright Horizons snacks are cucumber and hummus! My son absolutely loves the Montessori activities and now we are total Montessori converts. The teachers are very caring and I feel like they care are about each child who attends. We are so happy with Bright Horizons we are sending our baby too once I go back to work.
Montessori at Fiddler's Green is a wonderful school with a very family oriented, friendly and warm atmosphere. The infant room is amazing with teachers that will love and care for your child with the utmost respect and professionalism. As a parent bringing your son or daughter to this class it is incredibly comforting. As the children develop they are advanced into classrooms that support and nurture their growth. The school takes a 1 on 1 approach to each child and will support your child s needs. There is turn over with teachers however the school works very hard to mitigate the disruptive changes when this does occur. I am very happy with no children s development at the school and would highly recommend it to everyone who has children that are infant age thru kindergarten.
