My husband and I have been very happy with Berni's Montessori. Our two older kids are both graduated and now in elementary school and our younger one is currently attending Berni's. Seeing the older kids success since the day they started kindergarten, and seeing our younger child so happy at the Montessori, I am writing this review as a gratitude to Berni's. We saw how academically and socially well rounded and above average our kids were when they graduated from Berni's. That extra push they got academically early on is what has helped them in elementary school. Berni's has loving, nurturing and experienced teachers. The school provides a positive, loving, fun learning environment, so kids are not missing out on anything or have any time to idle. That is why my son is so happy to go to school everyday and not very happy when it's time to go home. There are not enough stars on this page to rate this school. Excellent!!!!!!

Our son has been going here for the past four years, since he was a 6 week infant. Our experience has been roundly positive. The teachers are very nice and the school attentive to parent concerns. Compared to the experiences of our friends at other schools it compares positively, especially for the affordable price, however we have to make all lunches, which other schools usually provide. We prefer this so we can control what he eats. Our son will be entering kindergarten this coming summer and we have been impressed with their solid preparatory materials and activities. We have developed friendships with many of the parents/children and are thankful for the multicultural environment. Our only major negative is that they allow kids to watch children's television/movies fairly routinely and there has been a fair amount of staff turnover, especially among the best staff members.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
