This school is magical. For the kids, there are loving, long-term instructors who are wise in the ways of helping to shape kind, considerate, thoughtful kids who are bright and curious and confident. Excited to learn and ready to have fun at school, at home, and wherever they are. They have an absolutely incredible yard, with chickens and bunnies and a track for bikes and a wonderful garden they plant together and great play structures. For the parents, the same instructors are always available to talk about parenting strategies, little tips to get you through a tough phase or partner to solve any larger issue, should you even need it. The school works hard to build and nurture a community of caring, fun families excited about learning and involved in the magic of raising wonderful kids. As much as my child has benefitted from her time at Countryside--she was there from 2.5 years through kindergarten and back this summer! and LOVES the school, her friends and the teachers--our family too has benefitted from the support and friendship that's part of being a Countryside Family. So, stop reading now and call Nancy or Kim for a tour.

I cannot say enough good things about Countryside Montessori. We had toured several Boulder preschools -- with mixed feelings -- but from the moment we stepped foot inside CMS (and even more so when we saw the incredible playground and garden) we knew without a doubt that this was the right place for our daughter -- and for us. That was 3 years ago and those years have been wonderful. Our daughter has since graduated but we come back to visit whenever we can and she is currently there for their fabulous summer program. The teacher quality is exceptional. The warmth and caring is palpable. There is so much thought that goes into making CMS a rich, supportive environment for children and parents alike, creating a community while catering to the individual needs of each child. We really appreciated the convenient hours (7-6), thoughtful little perks like the travel snack before going home, and being able to ask for guidance around parenting challenges from the wise and experienced staff. And we love the community. The school has helped our daughter develop and blossom into a happy, bright, caring child who is now at the top of her class. I can't recommend CMS enough.

Countryside is AMAZING. The staff are experienced, caring and stable, most with over 10 years of experience at the school. My children learned to become independent and responsible, with a great sense of care for others. They also entered first grade well above grade level in terms of reading and math skills. The community is warm and welcoming. I absolutely LOVE CMS - it is a very special place.

Countryside holds a special place in the hearts of my family. Not only is it a wonderful school but it is an extended family. The teachers are first rate and have been with the school for years. My kids have been out of the school for many years and we still keep in touch with the Countryside folks and a bunch of alumni families as well.
