We searched all over the metro area for a Montessori school for our daughter. After researching several programs in the area, we knew that Kinderhaus was the best fit for our daughter. While some of the Montessori programs have had frequent turnover rates in teachers, the teachers at Kinderhaus have been teaching there, as a team, for over twenty years. Therefore, the relationship of the teachers and the classroom routine has been well-established. The environment is welcoming, engaging, and clean, with materials that are in great condition. This was not the case in some of the other programs we visited. From the moment my daughter entered Kinderhaus, she felt comfortable exploring and did not want to leave. That was a huge sign that we had made the right decision. Now, we are amazed everyday at the new things she is learning. For instance, at three, she is able to articulate the difference between living and non-living things and discuss the continents. Her independence is soaring as well; she is able to dress herself, pour her own milk, and understands the need to pick up after herself when done with an activity. We cannot say enough great things about Kinderhaus!
My daughter's growth in learning since starting Kinderhaus has been phenomenal. My husband and I look at each other in wonder at some of the complex subjects she discusses (evaporation at age 3, for just one example). She loves school, loves learning and has learned to really respect space, her "work" (the materials), and the process for things. And we appreciate the independence this school fosters. I also have really enjoyed meeting other parents and building community through the parent-run nature of the school. This is seriously a hidden gem in the area.
Both our boys attended Kinderhaus and we were very pleased with their preparation for school. We also did a lot of volunteer work which was very rewarding for the parents. What a great group of people!
We have had two children attend Kinderhaus Montessori and they were both well prepared for the transition to elementary education. Both of our children are doing above their grade level in reading and mathematics. We feel their educational foundation and success can be attributed to their pre-school experience. Our third child has just started at Kinderhaus and we have complete confidence that she will be just as successful as her siblings.
