I would like to echo the comments from the previous post. My son who is 2 and a half has been going to the wichita campus since he turned 18months. He did not know one word of english before starting (we both speak to him in a different language at home) and he is now fluent. He also knows his colors, numbers and abcs in english. He has developed amazing social skills, is potty trained and has great maners. He is always happy to go to school and even tells us ok bye its time to leave now mom :) I would like to thank the teachers at the wichita campus, especially patiricia who is amazing with children. Good job! My only complaint is the high teacher turn around at the begining of the year but this seems to have calmed down. Teachers need to be given better incentives and encouragment from both parents and management, after all they are in charge of our most precious person, our child.

My 2 year old son has been at the Wichita Campus since July of this year. We love it! He has really blossomed- his language skills in particular. Patricia is always willing to talk with us about our son, and the other teachers can usually provide an anecdote about his day.

My 2 children attended MCDS. One is still a student , the other is in high school. The school creates parternerships with parents. This provides children with the consistency they desire throughout their day. The enviroment is pristine and the children take pride in their classrooms. We have been parents at this school for over 10 years. I know many of the teachers and most have been there for at least five years. The home like settings all have beautiful gardens. My children have always thought of it as their second home. Please go and see for yourself what this wonderful school has to offer. You will not be disappointed.

My 2-year-old daughter has attended MCDS since 3 months of age, and we have generally been pleased, primarily because we have developed good relationships with a few teachers that we were happy with and we know our daughter loved and vice-versa. We have been quite disappointed to observe a high teacher turnover rate, which results from teachers leaving the school for personal reasons or, to my dismay, frequent rotation of teachers from one class to another, disrupting the consistency that I think is one of the most important aspects of good childcare/education. Some teachers are quite affectionate and attentive, but many have an emotionally detached style. This is personality-dependent, of course, but the teachers are also encouraged to not "coddle" the children per "Montessori philosophy", which I think is inappropriately interpreted in this context.
