Montessori & More Reviews
We all love this place! My kids are always excited to go in the mornings. All the teachers are very caring, they really get to know the children. I love that they teach age appropriate lessons to every class. They keep a lesson plan on the wall by the door so I always know what my children are doing each day. The lunches are both healthy and geared toward children's tastes. I've had my kids at several different places, this is by far the best place I have found for them. If I show up unexpectedly they don't make me feel unwelcome and I know that I'm not going to see anything that would upset me (yes, I have seen my kids spanked or had snack withheld as punishments). Even misbehaviors are used as learning experiences they help the child realize WHY whatever it was isn't acceptable, and the time outs that I have seen have been appropriately timed (but they do a great job of getting through without resorting to this often). My husband likes that there is a privacy fence around the playground and that the rooms while clearly divided are still semi open to each other so that our two children who are in different age groups can still see each other, so they don't feel totally alone (When one is upset the other is even allowed to come check on them/help make them feel better).
