School Reviews

I love the Montessori style of learning. It teaches practical work that increases independence, curiosity, and a desire to learn. My daughter loves counting in Italian and is looking forward to learning more about Italy. At 4 she asks to do math work, reading work and loves helping around the home as Montessori encourages little ones to participate in daily tasks. I look forward to the literacy bags that come home as it helps me engage in what she is learning. I highly recommend Nashoba Montessori! Caring, compassionate and competent educators makes this a great place for kids to learn, grow and explore!

I continue to recommend the school to everyone I know or meet with small children. The staff is professional and caring. There is a wonderful sense of school community. The Chinese and French instruction along with a fabulous music program exceeds expectations.
