My daughter just adores this school and can't wait to go everyday. The teachers are wonderful and she is learning so much there. This is a small school with only four classes, so you really get to know one another very well. My daughter is reading at 3 and because each child is on an individual learning track, she is never held back and is always challenged. We toured many other schools in the area, and are glad we found New Albany Montessori.

All this school cares about is taking your money. They are the most greedy institution you will ever come across. Their entire pamphlets are about fines and late fees. I withdrew my student 3 months ago and I still have not received the refund on first month tuition. We gave them ample notice and they claim to be too busy to investigate my claim.They claim to have a waiting list...still they refuse to refund.

We absolutely love this school! We our on our 3rd of our three children attending and could not be more pleased with our children's experience and education. They have learned life skills that have built independence and confidence through the exceptional guidance of the amazing teachers while respecting thier peers. You will witness the children quietly working together or independently because they are so focused on discovering what they are truly capable of. Our older children transitioned to traditional schooling extremely well and excelled in their reading, writing and math especially which we greatly attribute to the schools teaching environment. They encourage children to learn through what interests them and are surrounded with different ages where they can serve as a leader or look up to an older child as a mentor. We have always been welcomed to come in to see our children at work. The owners of the school are so passionate about what they do and it really shows. We will be sad to leave after our final child completes their final year, but we will always continue to support the wonderful school. We highly recommend new Albany Montessori school!

I am forever grateful that I found this school. My son is now 8 years old and i believe his success in school now is greately because having attended Nams. Now my daughter is in nams and i know she is learning so much while developing a lifelong love for learning. The methodology allows children to do activities that are fun while also unknowingly learning all sorts of skills in math, language, social sciences, etc. The children are taught to this independently under the guidance of excellent teachers. The children are so busy discovering and exploring the amazing materials that there is not chaos going on as in other traditional preschools. My other choices for preschool for my children were simply facilities where the kids are thrown in rooms with character toys, trucks and inexperienced and bored caregivers who could not wait to get out of there. The kids are of course running and playing, but also hitting each other, banding against each other or bored walking around the room for something to do. I choose the amazing New Albany Montessori school that gave my children the confidence to know that they are capable of learning and that learning is fun.

A perfect school for those who don't want their kids to actually be kids. Here the kids are not aloud to run, laugh out loud, jump and most of the time even talk. Everyone has to be as quiet as a mouse so that the teachers can enjoy the silence. My child told me about it but I thought it was just her imagination at first. Then I went to volunteer in the classroom to read a book to the kids, and boy was I floored. They could not have any expression, they were not allowed to ask questions, they were sitting with their mouths closed when I came in for who knows how long. Just sitting there. So if you have a child who wants to run around, explore his world, feel accepted, etc. this school is not for him/her.

The negative experience that I had with this school is related to their policy that does not allow parents to drop by and observe their child in school. They do not welcome it, they require that you set up an appointment first as if they are worried that you might see something that should not be going on. The classrooms have one way windows where you can look inside the classroom but the kids cannot see you and still they don't want you to come. I could not come to any party (fall or spring), because every time i was told that they "had enough parent volunteers" and that there was no room for other parents. This is nonsense - I had to explain to my child every time why i did not show up - very disappointing.
