Bryant Woods Montessori Childrens House is located in Columbia, MD. It is a private, early childhood program/day care center school that serves 9 students in grades K. Bryant Woods Montessori Childrens House is coed (school has male and female students) and is nonsectarian in orientation. The school belongs to the American Montessori Society.
It’s difficult to express the love I feel for BWMCH. I watched both my sons blossom there in all aspects of their lives. The academic preparation they received was exceptional (one son entered first grade dividing and reading well above grade level), but more important to me was the love of learning, curiosity, thoughtfulness, social skills, and confidence that the school helped foster. They enjoyed the after-school enrichment opportunities and summer camp as well.
My child is in her second year at BWMCH and loves going to school. Because of her education from BWMCH her math, reading and writing skills are above what I expected for her age. She actually comes home wanting to do more math and writing. The school provides a very loving and nurturing environment that fosters learning through traditional Montessori methods. The one room school house is a wonderful environment that allows the older students to mentor the younger students building confidence and encouraging the love of learning among the children. The teachers, assistants and administrator are all very observant, loving and well experienced. The school also does an exemplary job of fostering a sense of community among the students and their families by providing family activities throughout the year. I researched and visited several preschools in the Ellicott City and Columbia areas and this was by far the most qualified. Since it is the only nonprofit Montessori school in Columbia I was confident that the motivation to provide a good education would supersede the motivation to make a profit. The price is also reasonable compared to other schools in the area.
