I have written on here before but my posts keep getting deleted. This is the WORST school ever! I would NEVER tell ANYONE to send their child here. My son and his classmates were left outside most of the day while the teachers stood in the corner and talked to one another and let the children do whatever. My son then became heat sick due to all the outside, unsupervised time and was forced to stay in his soiled clothing. Upon further inspection, it was determined by medical doctors that an adult had left bruises on his face, legs, and back (he had been man handled by a teacher there). He also has food allergies and was forced to sit in a corner by himself and was yelled at by the teacher if he didn't immediately go there. My son had nightmares and took months to get back to his normal loving self (we removed him from the school right away). The police refused to press charges because CPS messed up the paperwork and the state didn't want to admit they failed a child. NEVER send your child here!!!
Don't be blinded by the "Montessori" name! I can't speak for the program during the school year, but the summer program leaves much to be desired. My daughter was there for three days before I pulled her from there. Most of my daughter's days there were spent outside. Each afternoon when I picked her up, her face and hands were still filthy from lunch. The third day she had been sitting in a poopy diaper for what appeared to be quite a while. The poop stuck to her sensitive skin and, of course, diaper rash resulted. Luckily, that very day a spot opened up for another highly rated daycare in town, so I immediately signed her into that program and gathered her things from Our Montessori. The administrator was not there that day, so I spoke to the administrative assistant. I have yet to hear from the administrator, which speaks volumes about the staff's level of professionalism. Remember that you're only as good as your help, regardless of a fancy name on the door.
I write as a parent, a professional, and an educator. Our Montessori School is truly Montessori . I have had the experience of enrolling my children in different schools bragging the name Montessori only to discover that they were not. This school is the epitome of Montessori Schools for early education. More than a day care, Our Montessori School is education and the foundations that your child, or children, will glean from this school will make you wish you could travel back in time and enroll yourself. I whole-heartedly recommend this school for anyone who wants the best education for their children. The faculty and staff are extremely professional, experienced, and caring. You will truly love this school. Thank you Our Montessori School!!!
As a public educator (for APS) and a parent, I would highly encourage you to choose this school for your child/children. My son has been at OMS for 2 1/2 years. Over this period of time, he has grown into a bright and caring pre-schooler. OMS provides mixed aged groupings, which in my son's case, has allowed him to work academically above other students his age. He will enter kindergarten reading and understanding basic concepts in math such as: adding, subtracting, grouping, ect. The OMS staff is fabulous! They are caring, attentive, and very in tune with their students needs. Thanks OMS for all of your support and for taking care of my son.
I have worked at Our Montessori School for 8 yrs now. I love our administrator! She provides an amazing work environment. It is very professional, but at the same time like a little family. I adore the children and families that come into our family. I could not see myself elsewhere.
I began teaching at Our Montessori School in October of 1997. I still teach music there since my retirement in 2008. I have observed many Montessori schools since 1994 and I feel that Our Montessori School is the best Montessori school in Albuquerque. All of the teachers are Montessori certified and I am involved with their continuing education teacher training. This school offers a quality academic Montessori program and the staff are loving and respectful of the children. The administrator is experienced and has been there since the school was started. Her people skills make her a wonderful person to work for and with. The focus of all the staff at Our Montessori is to meet the needs of every child in the school and to make school a joyful place for learning.
I have two daughters so unfortunetly that meant going through allot of daycares that did not met my requirements(which were very high i will admit), but the search ended when i found Our Montessori school, and I loved it! My daughters were a few years apart,so they did not attend at the same time but the staff and adminstrator have always been amazing. The staff and adminstrator are very well qualified, and i love the fact that it is a school, at a daycare price (affordable). My daughters have integrated into public school very well and have always been ahead of there class because of the Montessori background delivered so adequatly at this school. I post this review for parents that are looking for an honest opinion, an honest review about a safe and secure, nurturing school for your child, belive me I understand and have been there, Hope I have been helpfull.
My son has attended OMS for over a year and I have nothing but good things to say about this school. The school has a high level of eduaction The teachers are all Montessori qualified; they always do their best to meet every child needs There is not point of comparison my son's knowlodge to my nephew who goes to a daycare The principal of OMS has always been very warm, dedicated and helpful. If you are looking for a quality, safe and warm enviroment school Our Montessori School is the best choice.
I observed here when I attended high school... loved the school then. My little brother attended and I knew that when I had children that they would attend here. I have been a parent as well as a staff member and would not bring my children anywhere else. The administration and staff are like a family and are wonderful to work with as well as very competent and have more than adequate certification and training. The only negative experiences I've had has been with parents who are no longer enrolled due to non payment of tuition in spite of a very flexible Board of Directors and Administration Staff.
I used to go to Our Montessori School, and I very much enjoyed it. I'm an advanced reader because at Our Montessori I was a reader at the age of 4. Now i'm 11 and realize how much support and confidence Our Montessori School has given me. I'm a lucky duck to have that support that this school has given me. So i recommend it to parents with children between the ages of 2-6.
