My daughter has been at this school since she was 10 weeks old. She has been happy with her caregivers, and learning new things every day thanks to them. When her favorite caregiver transitioned to another room the staff was very accommodating to move her as well. Thank you to the head staff and to the teachers, all of you do a great job!!
My son has been at this wonderful school since he was sixteen months old. He is happy, healthy and very well adjusted. The teachers and staff have always been thoughtful, kind and responsive. I have had daily contact with his teachers who have always taken the time to update me on his activities and progress. My four year old is reading, adding, and learning the countries of South America (his third map). He is well beyond his peers at other daycares. My only regret is that he'll have to move on to a new school next year.
I have had my 19-month-old son at this school since he was 10 weeks old, and have found all the staff, not just his immediate teachers, to be supportive and caring. They truly love what they do every day and it shows. They have helped me and my husband - first time parents - in so many ways as we've watched our child grow and learn.
This is the first school my daughter has ever experienced and it is amazing!! Her teachers are caring, compassionate and dedicated to each student. Under their guidance, she has blossomed into a wonderful, happy toddler. Our family is so happy with Montessori at Greenwood and we can not imagine having her anywhere else. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a great Montessori program with excellent staff.
What a wonderful school! I currenlty have two children, ages 2 & 5 (both started at age 3 months) enrolled here and have been so pleased with the opportunites offered for personal growth both academically and socially. The optional activities brought to the school give my children access to a very well rounded early childhood education experience!
I have had my son here since he was 6 months old and think very highly of the school. The teachers are caring, encouraging and consistent. The Montessori program has helped my son excel in many areas and I find him well ahead of his peers in other daycare centers.
We have been with Greenwood Plaza Montessori for 4 years now and have two boys in the school. Both my boys enjoy going to school and my preschooler truly enjoys learning. Plus, most teachers at this school have been there a long time which is a huge advantage for the kids and parents.
I've really been pleased with the school and all of the staff. My two year old has been enrolled since he was 3 months old. He has learned a tremendous amount and has really thrived in this caring learning environment. I recommend this school to any parent.
I currently have two kids at this school and plan to bring my infant there as well. My pre-K child is learning so much there that I am truly impressed with her each and every day. My 2 yr old is learning things by leaps and bounds as well. I truly believe they are way ahead of their peers and it gives me great relief to know how they love to go to school while I am at work. I have gone through many days when I literally have to drag my kids home and they ask to go to school on weekends. What else can I say?
My son has attended this school since he was 9 months old. He is currently in the Pre-K program and receiving an excellent education, performing well beyond expected levels for his age. As previous posters mentioned, there was a short lived problem with a new director who was quickly replaced. The teachers at this school provide a warm environment to create life long learners. I cannot recommend this school enough.
I couldn't have asked for a better school, I have never seen my older son behave so well and actually love going to school so much, I think the teachers at this school are very caring and great.
This school has been wonderful. My son transferred from another Montessori School where all he did was work on practical life stuff--never worked on letters or numbers. By the end of his first week at his new school, he was writing his name and so excited to go to school every day! The teachers are great.
We've had two of our children in this school for about a year now. There was quite a bit of turmoil when we first started and Bright Horizons took over. We have remained at this school because we feel the teachers are very caring and committed to our children. Bright Horizons does seem to be doing what they can to address the concerns of the parents. I do feel that this is a daycare and the education my children are receiving is average.
This is a wonderful school with loving and qualified teachers. Both of my children have attended this school since they were 3 months old. One is currently the Pre-K program and one is in the Minis program. Both of my children are excited to go to school everyday and are eager to share what they ve learned with us at the end of each day. My child in Pre-K is excelling in math and reading because of the Montessori approach. This school offers several enrichment programs for the children including Spanish, Art and a PE type activity. There was a short stint where there was a problem with a new director, but Bright Horizons quickly replaced that director and now things are better than ever. I am very impressed with the communication the new director/assistant director has with the parents. I would highly recommend this school.
The school underwent some changes due to an administrator that was there for a short time. This Montessori school has a lot of excellent long term teachers and involved parents. The new director seems great and Bright Horizons is very commited to collaboration and success. We have been there for several years and are very happy with the loving, educational environment.
This 'daycare center' (it should no longer be considered a Montessori) was recently purchased by Bright Horizons. They have brought on a horrible, unprofessional administrator who fires excellent teachers, refuses to respond to parents concerns and has made the atmosphere very unwelcoming. The children are not happy here and neither are the parents.
My son has been there sine he turned 2 years of age. Wonderful atmosphere for the kids to learn the 'Montessori' way of life. He has become an independent, confident young man in the time that he has been there. Their summer programs are excellent and makes you want to be a child again. What would I like to see - dance and music classes by qualified artists.
Our daughter has been there since age 6 months and LOVES this school. We have had super trained teachers and extra support when needed.
Only half of the teachers are montessori certified. My childs teacher very much acted like she was there for a paycheck and thats it. The management is poor, they could not keep accurate track of payments. I rarely..maybe twice, had any artwork or projects sent home. They did not put any creativity into teaching. It was the worst I have ever seen.
