Wonderful learning environment with a dedicated staff. We were initially anxious about moving our son from day care to Montessori where there is a little more structure. But we have really been blown away by the experience, it has been great decision. He races in first thing in the morning and tells us about his activities and adventures (opera house, apple picking, fire station) with his friends and teachers at night. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
This is a WONDERFUL school! I can't say enough glowing things about the fantastic, caring teachers at this school. It is a warm, nurturing environment where each child can work at his/her own pace. With the Montessori approach, they learn concepts in an integrated, hands-on fashion, and the learning is such fun that it doesn't even feel like work to the kids. My son has even mastered fractions in kindergarten! We are amazed at the academic achievement, but love that they also learn how to be good citizens and friends. They take many fun field trips, including one to the food bank to deliver their contributions for families who need a little help. The social awareness, music, and foreign language instruction are wonderful extras. The aftercare is great, too. I recommend this school with my highest enthusiasm!
An excellent place for children to be introduce into learning. The teachers are wonderful. They are caring and nurturing when they need to be, but also do wonderfully well in teaching the children right and wrong and how to be a good citizen. The academic program is superb. My daughter has done incredibly well here in the K program and is very well prepared for first grade next year. I have 4 children and my youngest is here, my other 3 went to other programs in the area. This, by far, is the best pre-school program in the Upper Valley.
