Both my boys attended Countryside 2 1/2 thru kindergarten it was extremely wonderful, you never felt like your kids were at "daycare" but enjoying and learning at a place they enjoyed with people that loved and respected them, caring about what adults they would become. Arguing in the book corner about which Caldecott Medal winner was the best book - that's pretty amazing for age 5.

Countryside is more than a just a school, it is also a family. My son has made wonderful friends and established the kind of bonds that I expect will last for many years even after he goes on to public school. We have made friends too. Countryside really encourages parents to get to know each other and the teachers, and it has made our experience better and allowed us to share and learn so that we become better parents. Even though I mention the community bonding first, the Countryside education is top-notch. They have loving and experienced teachers who return year after year, and they do an excellent job of implementing all aspects of traditional Montessori education, as well as supplementing with additional curriculum from the interests and hobbies of the teachers and parents. My son has learned not only reading, writing, and a great deal of math, but also some painting and drawing technique, gardening, cooking, even wrapping presents! They also do a lot of outdoor exploring and learning in their fabulous outdoor area with one of the best playgrounds around. In short, Countryside Montessori has been, and continues to be, an absolutely fabulous experience for our entire family

This is simply an amazing school! We have sent both of our children there through kindergarten, and are still reaping the benefits of all they learned, academically, emotionally and socially. The school strikes the perfect balance between montessori independent learning and a loving, supportive environment all within the context of a strong community building atmosphere. All of this plus the best discovery-oriented backyard ever! The teachers are tremendously dedicated and foster the best possible learning environment on all axes. They truly love the children, and the ties made here will last a lifetime.

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.
