We were very fortunate to send our son to Arborland at 18 months of age. Now at 2.5yrs, he has not only developed intellectually, but his social skills and maturity level is incredible. I am very thankful for the entire Arborland staff, especially his toddler teachers Ms. Sayra and Ms. Charlene for taking the time to understand, acknowledge, and individually work with him at his comfortable pace while maximizing his potential. Over the past year he has learned more than I could have ever imagined, which has positively impacted his confidence. My husband and I are expecting our second child this winter, and already planning on sending this next one to Arborland as well! There is no where else I would rather send my children, thank you for doing such an amazing job with our kids!

Being a new teacher to Arborland, I was very impressed with the amount of love and support given to me by the Director. I have worked in a few different Montessori schools since I became a teacher, but I have yet to see someone as sincere and dedicated to the Montesssori philosophy as Dr. Chen. She really takes every concern/issue into consideration and acts upon it immediately. She has a positive outlook on everything and is an acceptional role model! Arborland Education Center is not only an educational facility, rather a place for youth and adults as well. Come see for yourself!

Arborland Montessori is celebrating its 25th year. I have been with the school for 11 of those years. The principal and staff are very supporting and wonderful to work for and with. It is a very well rounded school and meets academic and social needs for the children and has almost every after school activity, from dance, art, music, chess, swimming, tennis and more. I am very honored to be on the staff at Arborland montessori.
