I have to agree with the previous post. The teacher to student ratio is terrible. It is a cold environment. Although most kids will do fine here, I bet these are the same kids that would have done fine at a lot of places. If your kid ends up needing a little extra attention or guidance, they are not able to provide that.
A Montessori curriculum is hard to screw up and the teachers are long-serving and mostly good, but the atmosphere, the administration, and community make CH an emperor in new clothes. The student/teacher ratio is unconscionable for a preschool. There are 25 kids and 2 adults in each classroom. The Montessori method is quite regimented so it may be possible to meet successfully the needs of 25 children with 2 teachers, but they're not doing it at CH. When I asked for my child to be given more direction, I was told, "With 25 kids it's hard. You know, the squeaky wheel gets the grease." In other words, the disruptive children are the ones getting most of the attention. Fine, get some more trained teachers into that classroom. As a bonus, the teachers perhaps would be less stressed and a little more loving. The head of school is cold, socially inept, bad with children, and sycophantic with the parents. Which leads to those parents. If you aren't repulsed by fundraisers with cigar & brandy tastings, a holiday bazaar with mimosas for the parents and "personal shoppers" (I'm not kidding) for the children, then CH is your place. It's the hip and rich preschool with no soul.
Best place imaginable for growing young minds! I couldn't imagine sending my children anywhere else. My son has been able to expand his abilities in every direction he has wanted and at his own speed - whether fast or slow.
