Love this school! My daughter started attending this school (in their primary class) at the end of August. She turned 2 in September. She knows all her letters (lower and upper case), all her colors, can count to 20, etc. She is excited to go to school every day. She genuinely seems happy there. She comes home singing songs and talking about her classmates. She has yoga, Spanish and music each week. A lot of credit for this is owed to the teacher. She welcomes her every day and encourages her to put her stuff away and get settled. It is a great learning environment.

My 2yr old has attended this school for year now. Most important, she loves going to school every single day. Smiles and runs to the door, receives hugs from her teachers when she enters and tells me about all the fun things she did all day when I pick her up. Additionally, the things my 2yr old knows is outstanding: all letters (upper and lower), identify all numbers up to 20, speaks and responds to simple Spanish phrases, knows the continents, days of the week and months in the year. I gave this school 5 stars b/c I know my child is happy and learning everyday.

Initially, I thought that Children's Manor in Columbia was a pretty decent place to send my child. Now that my child is about to graduate and move on to the public school setting, I must admit that if I had known half of the things that parent friends have been sharing with me this past year, I would probably have transferred my child out of the school. However, my child has established friendships at the school, which has made it difficult even if I wanted to go that route. For instance, I have heard of parents complaining that their children were being yelled at, berated, and made to cry. In addition, in terms of safety concerns, there were disinfectant spray cans lying around in each class, within reach for all little ones. More horrifying was a story that there was a pair of box cutters, left on the counter top, accessible for all students to get a hold of. Academically, my child has progressed in some areas, but not all. Sadly, I expected a lot more out of the Pre-K program this year, considering my child would be moving on to Kindergarten the following school year. Explore all of your Montessori options before committing to CMMS-Columbia.

My daughter has been attending Childrens Manor in Columbia for almost a year now. She is 2 1/2 and can speak spanish, recognize numbers, the alphabet (upper and lower case), can name all the planets/stars in the solar system and has learned phonics. The teachers are attentive and truly care about the students. We are quite pleased with the program.
