I just want to comment on the person that sent a very negative review. I am so sorry that you feel this way, I have been teaching there for 9 years and I cant believe what I'm reading about the school. There are montessori certified teachers in every room we might not be perfect but we all are very nurturing, caring and loving to all the children no matter who they are and as for treating children different, all the children are treated the same, there are no children that are friends of teachers. I don't mean to sound rude I'm just stating facts. If you had a problem with a certain classroom or teacher you can go to another teacher as myself and we would observe and discuss this with the director and try to fix any problem without saying who made the complaint. As for being strict with the kids and not talking, that's not true we encourage the children to communicate to each other and to staff, that is part of our social development. As for arrogant staff I would love to know who that was. I'm so very sorry you had a bad experience with us. Everyone might not agree with either one of these reviews. You need to come see the school yourself, observe and ask for references. Thank u!

Worst to worst..Not worth it for d money we pay. Its just a daycare and not a montessori school..The teachers are very very arrogant .We can"t take any complaints to them as it will reflect in their behaviour to our child.As far as I know, in each class there are kids who are the teachers' friends kids.So those kids gets first pref..The management staff in the front office is extremely rude while she replies for any complaints.horrible management,very unclean and arrogant staffs in a particular room.Moreover many teachers there are not montessori trained.if you ve put ur child in that school please backpff now itself before sigining d contract.the kids will learn nothing there and they will start developing psychological probs because they r extermly strict with the kids.the kids shud not talk to other kid.that is another rule which is sick.Now, it upto you to decide whether to put your kid in that school or not..
