Our (almost) 2-year-old daughter has been coming to this "school" (as we call it) for a year now and we are very happy. It truly is a loving place where the teachers show a genuine interest in the kids. I work in the education field and often work on and encourage my daughter to learn skills at home (such as colors, letters, songs) and often find she already knows them :). My daughter regularly asks about her teachers by name when she is not at school and is always happy to see them.

We took our two daughters to this school. They both had good experiences. When we took our kids to the public school for kinder the teachers said that our kids were advanced. The teachers at American Montessori gave our kids a good start to their learning.

This is a good quality school. The staff are always nice and friendly, and caring towards my daughter. Honestly, it's not the fanciest or most modern-looking school in the world, but for me the great care my child receives from her teachers is my priority. My daughter loves coming to school everyday. The fees are pretty reasonable too.
