My daughter attended MAC for 2 years. We had a wildly inconsistent experience with the 2 classrooms (toddler and primary) in which she was a student. Our daughter at the time was in speech language therapy and needed some additional time/help transitioning from one activity to the next- some teachers handled this wonderfully, while other didn't have a clue how to help her, which seemed indicative of a lack of consistent training for staff.Communication around the child s progress has to be one of the school s biggest problems; in one class,we were told she was doing fine, in the next we got this vague worksheet didn't really give us a clear picture of what she'd actually learned/achieved during a 6 month period.Transitions from one grade to the next are not handled with the individual child's needs in mind- it's more of a numbers game for the school. There is a lot of staff turn around. It's a big school and it's easy for kids to get lost in the program. We moved on to a smaller program and my daughter flourished immediately- it was shocking how much better the new school was for her; it really drove home for our family how under-served her needs were at MAC.
My daughter has attended Montessori Academy of Colorado for about 3 years, first as a toddler and now as a pre-k student. The teachers are knowledgeable and caring and we feel like our daughter has benefited so much from her experience at MAC. In the fall, she will be in the first class of the newly-launched elementary program and we are thrilled!
Our son has attended MAC for the last four plus years. We have watched him grow from a small infant into a young (and still somewhat small) man. MAC has provided him the environment to challenge himself both academically and socially. Our son has amazed us with his desire to always want to learn more. MAC has helped foster this. Our son is ready to move on to kindergarten next year at a new school and we know that with the foundation he has built at MAC, he will continue to achieve great things. I highly recommend MAC to anyone looking for a place for their kids to grow in a caring and loving environment.
Our family loves this school! We needed to find a child care solution when our first child was born since my husband and I work full time. We toured 5 programs and knew that we found a special place right as soon as we entered MAC's doors. MAC offers a calm and nurturing environment. The education they provide is astounding. We had no idea how capable children truly are and MAC's curriculum builds a strong foundation so that even the littlest ones can express themselves and contribute. We have no guilt about working because MAC meets our children's needs in a safe and caring environment.
