I have two children (2 and 4) currently at the school. I needed to find someplace that supported them academically, but where they could have fun as well. My eldest transferred to this school last year after a horrible experience with a different (and very expensive) Montessori school. Mid-semester, I knew I had to find a better school and we both visited several schools - this was the one *he* (my son) picked himself. When he started, the staff here was terrific and gave him lots of support. My 2 started this year - he's smart but not always the best behaved - the staff has been kind and works with him. I've seen great leaps occur with both kids; both academically and maturity. Both children just seem really happy here. Yesterday my 4 wanted to stay at school for "rug tag". He's enrolled in piano, dance, and soccer (the three extra curriculars offered for an extra fee). The teacher(s) are working with him on advanced material in class. Personal note: RE: Comments posted about administration - the administration changed in 2013 - a VMS teacher now runs it. RE: the education comments posted - as a parent - no clue what they are talking about - maybe that happened in 2010?

After moving here from the Philadelphia area, we knew we wanted to keep our daughter in a Montessori school. VMS did not disappoint - we found the teachers and curriculum to be excellent, warm and welcoming. Our daughter thrived there and is now exceling in 1st grade in public school. I myself am a graduate of Montessori and can attest to the strong foundation that this type of education provides. Once shy, our daughter is now confident, outgoing and loves to learn. A Montessori education and VMS are a large contributor to this. We have a new baby now that we will undoubtedly be sending to VMS as well. Thank you, VMS!!

I went to this school and gained the confidence and self efficacy that made me successful all through my school career. I now send my daughter to this school where I have 100% confidence that the teachers are good- because I know them (staff turnover rate is extremely low) Any program can be good, but without a good teacher it is useless. Teachers here are fabulous. I have observed here as an early childhood educator and have seen that they actually follow the Montessori Method, unlike a lot of Montessori schools. They also have music, art, PE, and A DANCE CLASS that is offered on site. Many Montessori schools lack the creative expression aspect- NOT THIS ONE. Throw away that idea of Montessori being stuffy. These kids learn responsibility AND creativity here. My daughter s teacher sends her own grandkids there- sign of a GREAT school.

What a wonderful experience this school was for our children who attended this school for 4 years each! Both were well prepared as they entered public schools. We sure miss the care and attention of the wonderful teachers and staff at VMS.
