Bala House is the best Montessori school around the area. Both my kids were in there for a few years and loved it. I transferred my younger kid out to another Montessori school which is closer to home. And I also heard it is a good school. But no, no, I regret the decision. The difference is more than noticable. Bala House's teachers are far better than the other school. I will give you an example --- I dropped off my kid off at the new school. The teacher was there playing on her smart phone. She did not come to say hello or welcome my kid. This had never happened at Bala House during my few years of dropping experience. Bala House's teachers are always very caring and friendly. There are a lot of other cases that I can give you, but I will be running out of space here. So parents, choose Bala House Montessori School and you will be glad you did when you see how happy your kids are. Besides, I pay some amount for both school -- Bala House is 9-5 while the new school is 9-3 :-)

My children attended the Bala House for 3 years and just recently graduated from the kindergarten program. They each learned to enjoy learning, to challenge themselves, and to impress themselves by what they can do! The teachers encourage the students to become advocates for themselves in the learning process. They have gained valuable lessons that will serve them well as they enter 1st grade next year. The school is full of caring, knowledgeable, and passionate teachers. The school director is equally caring and goes to great lengths to get to know each family at the school. She is a wonderful resource for families and a great leader for the school. I don't think I could have given my children a better start to their learning career.

Our son started at Bala House Montessori as a 3-year old and has loved it since his first day. The school offers a fantastic academic curriculum, beautiful facilities and a family-oriented community that is hard to find elsewhere. The Director is warm and engaged figure who knows all the children and families. We have loved the Montessori curriculum and the beautiful learning materials in the classrooms. Weekly instruction in art, music and movement make the program a truly well-rounded experience. The school has a large field and expansive playground, which was necessary for our active son. I continue to be amazed at what he already learned as an in-coming Kindergartener. I think that is is far beyond what is being offered at other area schools. Bala House is more expensive than some local preschool programs but it is well worth the investment. I have also loved the frequent annual family events. It has been a great way to get to know other local parents and their children.

My children have had the best preschool and K experience here. The loved school every day, and left Bala House well-prepared to move on. Couldn't ask for more.
