This school is horrible. Part of the Montessori method is to have a warm inviting classroom. They don't even allow art on the walls, because "It makes the classroom look messy and cluttered." If you notice there are no clocks in the classrooms, so they'll be no distractions. Its also very obvious which kids/families are the favorites around there. CMS is a money hungry establishment. My family is worth more than dollar bills.

My daughter has attended this school for two years and it is more than a's another leg of our family. The teachers care for your child as if they were their own. Due to her age I am faced with no other choice but to move her to public school next year and I am so anxious that she will have to leave this school behind. There is not a better school in the Olympia area!

My Child went CMS and I was not happy. My older two boys went to a Montessori school in California which was a great school but here in Olympia was a total different program. The teachers are not true teachers. Its more of a daycare than preschool. Be careful they are more concern with money and will charge extra every opportunity they can. I would highly recommed the public schools in Olympia district

This school allows your child to work at their own pace; while still working on social and life skills. They are provided and taught independence while still being loved and cared for. The before and after school care is WONDERFUL and one of the main reasons that we decided this school was the right one for our children. Our son in K is socializing with peers while working in math at the 2nd grade level and 4th in reading. This school is extremely well balanced for all children and none of the children are aware of different ability levels, just that they are unique and special individuals.
