My son is 2 and has attended Lakewood Montessori School since he was 11 weeks old. In a word, he LOVES it...so do my husband and I. It is just amazing how much he learns every day all while having a great time! He already knows all of his colors, can count to 20, name the days of the week, and so much more...the teachers and curriculum are outstanding. As parents we couldn't ask for a better experience for our son. Not only does he spend his day in a safe and nurturing environment, but he has a blast and learns a lot all at the same time! Thank you Lakewood Montessori.
I 100% DISAGREE with the previous review on the Lakewood Montessori School and I find some of the reviews hard to believe! The director, teachers are very warm and caring. My daughter attended Lakewood Montessori two years ago. They go out of their way to engage your child in learning and they have several activities throughout the year to bring families together. This is a great school, I have nothing to say but that the teachers are well trained and extremely hard working, warm and caring people. Please don't rule this school out based on ONE review. Please go and visit the school, director and teachers then you can see how well they provide a safe, caring, nurturing atmosphere!
Our daughter has been attending the Lakewood Montessori School for the past four years and my wife and I have been very pleased with the School and the staff. We searched very hard before choosing this school and no other school in the area could match the quality and the professionalism of the staff and the curriculum. They care about everything from the children's nutrition to teaching the principles of Montessori and all that at a price that is comparable to a regular daycare. Our daughter has been going to Lakewood Montessori School since before she was a year old and she absolutely love her school and her teachers. Thanks Lakewood Montessori School for being here in Lee's Summit.
I am writing this both as a parent and as a former employee of this school. The school produces intelligent children because it is a structured learning environment- any school based on the Montessori curriculum will provide this. Having said this, the "dedicated" teachers are few and far between. I started my child at LWM and within the first few weeks her behavior became aggressive and she begged me to not make her go. I can't say for sure what was going on in her classroom. In other rooms, however, I saw one of the teachers slap a child's hand, bop a child on the bottom with a cloth book, and other teachers yelled at the students and roughly pulled children to direct them where to go. The owner is very blaming- rarely is anything her fault. In this schools defense, the teachers seem like nice people, but they are not held to the guidelines of a Montessori school, and there are just too many kids in one room! And they do go over on numbers in classrooms pretty frequently. I could go on about all the things I noticed about this school, but really what it comes down to is, know who you are leaving your kid with. Myself and my child promptly left this school.
