Our child was in this school for 3 years. I had reservations but kept thinking the consistency was best. We paid additional fees for dance and spanish classes, that I thought were great for small children. After leaving Londonderry, our daughter had a very difficult time repeating 5K in public school, as did her friends with which we have kept in touch--the children were completely unprepared. One teacher, our daughter had at Londonderry, was intimidating and impatient (with 3 year olds), one was very good, and the third was unattached--the class was a free for all. The director is overly self confident in her opinions I am sorry to say. Being a little older and wiser, I regret putting our daughter in Londonderry.
I can not say enough good about this school. My son is "all boy". He went to preschool at another school in the area. He cried every mornimg. It was obvious that they did not like him. I talked to friends that are teachers and Londonderry was recommended highly. We put him in Londonderry for K-5. The teacher, Mrs. Nimmich listened to my concerns and took my son under her wing. She was exactly what he needed. She is tough but fair. Balancing love with discipline. My son was so happy to go to school and learned so much. By the end of the year he was reading the same books as my second grader, was adding and subtracting,knew about money, could tell time and so much more.My son is happy, confident and loves school. I owe this to Mrs. Nimmich, Mrs. Malcolm and the wonderful Londonderry staff. I just wish they had a first grade.
At first look this school seemed like a wonderful Montessori option for my child. This school has teachers who are certified through an online program which is not generally recommended for a true Montessori experience and learning environment. This school is okay if you have a child who doesn't have an independent thought or strong will. They are particularly harder on boys who generally have a harder time sitting and being quiet for extended periods of time. The staff was rude and condescending after agreeing to work with my child, specifically after belittling my 3 year old child. They use isolation as a form of punishment and somehow expect children to thrive. Be prepared to miss lots of work if your child does any of the age appropriate mistakes that require discipline because they will just send your child home. The classrooms are tiny and are not a suitable size for a class. Security with the entrance is also a concern because there is nothing standing between your little one and a parking lot since the front office staff may not be there or paying attention. I would suggest picking another school if you don't have a robot child that isn't creative .
My husband is in the Navy. We have 3 children, and have had many duty stations. We were told about Londonderry Montessori in Goose Creek, S.C. a year ago from a friend. The school has a half day program that many people don't know about. I met with Mrs.Tennant a year ago and feel she and the school have been a blessing to our family. I always knew that when son was with Mrs.Tennant he would be safe and happy. At the end of last school year he was tested for Northwoods Acad. and placed in the ten percentage. A BIG THANK-YOU to Mrs. Tennant. We love you.
