School Reviews

This is a great school for young kids. My daughter has been going there for last 3 years. We couldn't be happier. The level of education, fun, care, and creativity kids get here is unparalleled. Entire staff including the director is just great.

I''m very happy with the education my daughter received at Park Montessori Children''s Center for the three years she was there. They have a great pre-school and Kindergarten program where kids have the opportunity to excel academically, socially, and psychologically. Children are not only taught the fundamentals needed to succeed in life but they are also treated like family members. The environment is very nurturing that once you have your kids there, you don''t want to take them to any other pre-school. When my daughter graduated from Kindergarten, she was so advanced that she was two grades above grade level. This helped her get into Balboa Gifted/High Ability Magnet Elementary School which is the #1 school in the whole LAUSD and it is nationally recognized. I really recommend Park Montessori Children''s Center to parents who are looking for a pre-school in which their children can excel in many areas and at the same time be treated with love and respect.
