I can't say enough how we have loved this school for our daughter. When she started there at three she was (and still is) extrememly strong willed and occasionally difficult. The teachers all have monumental patience and so much experience, they really work well with children of all personality types. The atmosphere there is energetic but amazingly calm, and the work they accomplish with the children is phenomenal. My daughter loves school, is learning to read and has picked up some great cooperative social skills. the montessori method may not be for everyone, but it has been an ideal experience for my child. The cost is low relative to the quality of the education. There is a Christian bend to the school, which I coiuld do without, but it is fairly innocuous. Only general and positive messages are shared.
