A Montessori curriculum is hard to screw up and the teachers are long-serving and mostly good, but the atmosphere, the administration, and community make CH an emperor in new clothes. The student/teacher ratio is unconscionable for a preschool. There are 25 kids and 2 adults in each classroom. The Montessori method is quite regimented so it may be possible to meet successfully the needs of 25 children with 2 teachers, but they're not doing it at CH. When I asked for my child to be given more direction, I was told, "With 25 kids it's hard. You know, the squeaky wheel gets the grease." In other words, the disruptive children are the ones getting most of the attention. Fine, get some more trained teachers into that classroom. As a bonus, the teachers perhaps would be less stressed and a little more loving. The head of school is cold, socially inept, bad with children, and sycophantic with the parents. Which leads to those parents. If you aren't repulsed by fundraisers with cigar & brandy tastings, a holiday bazaar with mimosas for the parents and "personal shoppers" (I'm not kidding) for the children, then CH is your place. It's the hip and rich preschool with no soul.

Best place imaginable for growing young minds! I couldn't imagine sending my children anywhere else. My son has been able to expand his abilities in every direction he has wanted and at his own speed - whether fast or slow.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
