We have been quite pleased with this school, since it's our 3-rd year there. It's a small school in the basement of the private home (the main teacher-director's). Very caring teacher Ms. Bridget (director) and Ms. Suzie (former parent, now assistant teacher), great program. They do stick to the classical Montessori method. Children get a lot of personal attention and the program is sort of personalized for each child. Great holiday celebrations and field trips. Little farm they have next to the school is a great bonus. Kids watch the birds, feed them and study about them. They also plant vegetables and flowers. They request the change of shoes inside the class and are really good about teaching self-service skills. Junk foods, sweets and weather unappropriate clothes are not welcome - all this and lot more - really appreciated by the parents. Good teacher-parent communication. School uses a lot of electronic communication now and has an official as well as the parent web-site for better communication.
