We started our son in the toddler program at CMS and he's blossomed since then. I can't say enough good things about this school and the educators. I highly recommend the school!

Very good school all around. No complaints. My children love it and have developed life long friendships at such an early age. The teachers really care, not just when the parents are around. Very well priced for a Montessori school in the area, but still pretty expensive if you are not well off. You get what you pay for. My children love it there. No homework (or very little), no tests (unless they opt in at a certain age). Even though I was really skeptical about the program at first, my children knowledge base is astounding at such an early age. They are so engaged and excited about their school work it's amazing. I highly recommend it.

My toddler aged son has been at this school for a year and it has been wonderful. The quality of the education is absolutely worth the money. I am happy that this school has helped form my son into a healthy, responsible, and independent two year old!
