This school has one mission: instill fear into the minds of young kids. Anything less than immediate obedience to authority is met with isolation, anger, and ultimately, contempt. Among the bizarre "corrections" that this school employed, our two-year-old child was forced to eat lunch at a separate table -all alone- for several months. Every single day. No child deserves to be ostracized in that way. The teachers were angry with our child every day, and never failed to communicate their disdain. The final straw came one evening at home when our 2 year old seemed very sad and was clearly troubled by something that happened that day. When we asked what was wrong, our child said tearfully "I can't go to school tomorrow; <the teacher> said I'm too bad." It was heartbreaking to see our young child so upset by the interaction with the school's teachers. We immediately moved our child to another school, and the difference is unbelievable. The teachers at his new school are positive and encouraging, and our child is happy, thriving, and eager to go to school every day. We write this review hoping that another child might be spared the experience that ours had to endure.
Well-run school with great caring teachers and an owner that has high standard for cleanliness, organization, and quality staff. My child loves going to Streamwood Montessori every day. When I see how much fun my child is having while learning and making new friends in this great environment, it helps take the burden off being a working parent.
I have been working here for three years and love being a part of this school. Previously, I worked for other, large child care centers and never really felt that they understood the joys of working with children. Here the entire staff is truly engaged in devoting their time to your child. All three of my children have attended or are attending the school. I was not very familiar with the Montessori Method when I came to the school. I was nervous about how my 4 yr old daughter would adjust from "regular" child care to this new method. However, the transition was seamless. She flourished in the classroom and continues to excel. (she is now 7 yrs old) Both of my sons are currently attending the school. The school itself is in a great neighborhood location and the classrooms are neat, clean and calming. The thing I like best about Montessori the teachers observe each child and design an individualized curriculum for that child. This allows them to extend beyond a pre-determined curriculum typically seen at traditional centers. We also encourage the children to be responsible and compassionate members of their community.
I like Streamwood Montessori for the following reasons: Excellent teacher-student ratio Differentiated teaching Very clean and safe learning environment Roomy & airy classrooms Materials are accessible for kids to work with Friendly staff Safe play area in the back especially for older kids My kids in the 3-6 room are thriving and they surprise me regularly with the things they learn in school. My son sees fractions, time and money everywhere.
Teachers cares kids are well behaved kids learn to respect kids learn in many different levels school is clean staff is super friendly parents trust the teachers and staff safe
