The loving, energetic staff and small class size makes this school and wonderful place for your child first experience with school. My son started at age 3 for pre- school and will graduate from the kindergarten program in 2008. We absolutely love this school. Our second will be attending once he is old enough as well. The Montessori method may seem a tad out of the ordinary at first, but once you see how excited your child will be go to to school and how quickly a child can learn using this method you will be convinced like I am that this is a great way to teach children. Fostering a love and respect of themselves and all living things is an important part of this schools mission, as well as effective conflict resolution among class mates. In this increasingly violent world this is a great place to learn the basics.
