My daughter attended preschool & pre-K here. Mr. David & Mrs. Cheryl were the most AMAZING preschool teachers. My daughter always looked forward to her day with them & to spending time with her friends. Safety & cleanliness were also at the top of the list here....giving me as a parent such peace of mind.Mrs. Navarro is the quintessential of a Montessori teacher. When my daughter graduated Pre-K she had learned how to add, subtract, write sentences, spell & much much more. I really can`t say enough about CPMS & what it`s done for my daughter.
