I cannot say enough positive things about Winhold Montessori. The teachers and staff are amazing. Mrs. Gunraj is truly a gifted teacher. Mrs. Winhold has wonderful knowledge of montessori method and education. Our two children have attended since they were 2 years old. It is truly amazing to see what young children can achieve when they are given the opportunity. It is well worth the investment in early education. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to prepare their child for school and life.
Probably the best investment we have ever made for our children who attended since they were toddlers. It was amazing to see how they developed into independent thinkers and doers. The loved going to school and it was clear that the teachers and staff cared for them.
You are all parents who have their kids here... I WENT HERE. Yes I am an an adult now with my own Children however I will never forget my experience there. Good and bad. I will never forget being falsely accused of wetting myself and humiliated in front of my ENTIRE class and made to change into another child's clothes. I also was made to skip out on snack times frequently for minor things such as not hearing something the very first time. School was especially a place to get fed as I was not cared for properly in that way at home, so I pitched a royal fit the last day I attended. Rather than getting to the cause I was just given the boot and my parents were given all the more reason to mistreat me. If anyone ever mistreated my daughter or son at school by making fun of them or taking food away from them and making them watch others eat I would have a cow. If that teacher was not fired we would have issues. Aren't schools supposed to places to learn to share and be sweet and how to count and that everyone is to be treated how they want to be treated at that age? I would say just keep your eyes open. I believe the teacher that was in charge of me was Mrs. Perez.
Excellent staff and education. Rare gem of passion and purpose. It seems that any previous negative comments were from parents not wanting to take responsibility for their own actions and were looking for a daycare or nanny and not a school. Check out how many students get into great programs as well as being successful and happy after being at Winhold M.
Most of you may have better luck. Great for you but not for us ! I have dropped off my child clean and when I would pick him up he had lots of dryed pooh inside of his underwear like maybe he never was changed. I said something I was made a fool. you have no clue as to what is taken place inside Winhold Montessori School. Me and My wife have talked this over and our child will not be returning to Winhold Montessori School. 17555 South Dixie Highway,Palmetto Bay, FL 33157 (Dissatisfied)
My daughter went to Winhold Montessori for 3 years. If you can afford to give your child this wonderful head-start education, they truly have the best Teachers and learning program to get your child loving to learn. For the children they make learning interesting, exciting, and fun, and know how to do it and encourage your child, even at such a young age.This is truly a top quality school and a wonderful opportunity to give your child prior to entering elementary school. - Kudos to Mrs. Gunraj and Mr. Barry!
My son attended Winhold Montessori for two years and we couldn't have been happier. He is an independent, self-confident child who genuinely loves learning (especially loves to read). His teachers were caring & loving towards the children, and my son loved going to school every day. We are so happy that our child received such a great start to his education at Winhold.
My child attended Winhold Montessori for three years. This is an AMAZING school that gives children a love of learning and a solid foundation that is rarely found these days. Citizenship training is emphasized along with the arts, physical activity, and strong foundations in both math and language arts. I only wish they had grades higher than kindergarten. Our family would most definitely be there if they did.
I highly recommend this school to anyone, the teacher are great, winhold helps the children grow and enjoy learning, my son is more confident and he want to work lesson and he come to our house happy and the most important confident.
I have two children who currently attend Winhold Montessori and we couldn't be happier. Yes, the children are expected to be independent and are encouraged to do things for themselves. We appreciate this aspect of the Montessori regimen as we can see the self confidence instilled in our boys. I highly, highly recommend this school to anyone who has a child between the ages of 18 months and 5 years of age. The experiences your child has during the early years are so important and Winhold helps the children to grow into self thinkers who enjoy learning.
Dictatorship? Are you confusing that with giving children boundaries? I also have a graduating child and a toddler at Winhold. We couldn't be happier, but more importantly, our children are thrilled to go to school. I am amazed at how much they are learning and how much they enjoy learning. The teachers are great, are in constant contact and offer suggestions on how to bring out the best in each individual child.
I can attest that the school runs more like a dictatorship than a diplomacy. A plus for them is the daily reports. My child will not be returning this year.
Currently we have one child graduating Kindergarten and a toddler at Winhold. Over the past three years we have been amazed at what our children have learned and the experiences we have had. We are firm believers of the Montessori method and have seen first hand the effects of the teachings. The independence and confidence our children display at such a young age is wonderful. Their love of learning and desire to go to school is something every parent dreams of. I recommend Winhold and the Montessori Method to everyone I can.
Winhold Montessori a well established and well respected Montesorri school. The administration and teachers do a fantastic job preparing students not only for first grade but for lifelong. Winhold graduates go on to some of the finest elementary schools in Miami (i.e., F.C. Martin, Ludlam, Whispering Pines, etc.). It was difficult at first not to be more involved in the day-to-day activities of my child but I realize now that it is important to limit parent interruptions in the Montessori environment. The administration and teachers do encourage parental involvement in other ways such as mini-tours, International festival, holiday and end-of-year programs, Mother's Day Tea, Father's Day activities, Open House, etc. They also hold a monthly evening informational meeting for parents to talk about various aspects of Montessori education and related issues.
