School Reviews

1 year ago
Winter Bear is a fabulous nursery school for 3, 4 and 5 year olds that practices the Montessori method. My daughter attended for 3 years, and for the 2nd and 3rd year attended 5 morning and 3 afternoon sessions per week. At the end of Kindergarten, she did not want to leave. Ronnie is dedicated and extremely talented. She is knees-on-the-floor when appropriate! Eight years later, she remains a friend, and I remain a Winter Bear parent.
