We had a great experience last year with a warm, nurturing teacher. This year the teacher was the exact opposite and we don't know why she is teaching young children when it seems she doesn't even like children. We found her to lack any kind of communication skills with parents. Another issue is the extremely dangerous entrance and exit to the school.
This school is one of the best Montessori schools I have ever seen. I have had children in several schools through the years (I have 4 children) and this one is by far managed the best. The administration is absolutely not just out for money! They met with me several times before we joined the school - allowed my son to attend FOR FREE for a week to ensure this was the best fit for him. Both my children who attended this school not only learned academically, but BLOSSOMED and THRIVED. You just can't ask for more! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school!
The teachers at this school are wonderful. However, the teachers never seem to stay. The teacher turn over is very high at this school and I think that is a reflection of the administration. The administration has one goal in mind and it is money not what is best for the children. I would not recommend sending your child to this school.
Our toddler had a great experience at Crabapple, his first school experience. The teacher was fantastic -- we never worried about him or his well-being during the school day. The facilities are well-maintained and reflect the strengths of the Montessori discipline. The administrators are welcoming and open to parent involvement. This is a great educational opportunity for local families.
This is a wonderful school. I cannot say enough positive things about our son's experience there. He had been at another local preschool, and I was concerned about the transition to Montessori, but it was seamless. Wish I had known about this little jewel earlier. Our son absolutely thrived at this school. Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay is the assurance that we will definitely send our infant son there once he is 18 months old.
Our daughter started Crabapple Montessori at 18 mths and now at 2 1/2 has completely blossomed. Her vocabulary has increased, her independence and her confidence in completing tasks herself. The teacher in the toddler program are amazing and provide monthly newsletters to allow the parents to know what happens in school. The programs for parents/families are amazing. I would definitely recommend this school.
Both of my children have attended Crabapple Montessori. My son is in his third and final year. There are not enough good things to say about this school and the experiences my children have had here. Each day I see behaviors in my children that I know were learned at Crabapple Montessori. I know we made the right decision.
My daughter has attended CMS since she was 18 months and she is now just over 3 years old. The director, teachers, and assistance are skilled and loving. This school offers support and education not only to the children but to the parents. We are very happy with our decision to enroll our daughter here and would not change anything.
My daughter has attended Crabapple Montessori since she was 18 months old. She is currently 4 years old. We have been so pleased with the quality of the curriculum as well as the high quality and dedication of the teaching staff. We didn't live near this Montessori school when our other two daughters were in preschool and now I wish we had. Our 3rd daughter continues to surprise me with what she can do and what she is learning. She loves school and we couldn't be more satisfied with our experience there.
We are in our fourth year at Crabapple Montessori. Our oldest child did two years of preschool and kindergarten there. Our youngest child is currently there in a toddler program. Montessori is a fabulous way to start your child's education. The teachers are wonderful. We love the school!
