What a wonderful school! Great, loving teachers who really care about the children. Beautiful classrooms with many hands-on items and materials. The progress that my two children have made in the past year (mentally, emotionally, and education wise) is absolutely incredible. I love that my children get a well-rounded education...foreign language, art, math, history, reading, gymnastics! So many extra curricular activities to choose from, especially in comparison to public schools, My only complaint is that my kids can't stay here forever.
We have all four of our boys at Canyon Montessori. The teachers provide a nurturing and loving environment where our kids feel completely at home. We value the rich and rigorous academic program that allows each child to work at his own pace. My children have developed a confidence in their ability to excel in areas in which they are gifted. In challenging areas, they are secure enough to struggle while not feeling embarrassed. As parents, we appreciate the cultural diversity of the teachers and students. I have been thoroughly pleased with having my boys at Canyon Montessori.
We are so happy to have found Canyon Montessori Center. My daughter has improved so much for the few months she has attended the school. They do allow children to think, not just memorize. My older child attended Canyon Montessori before going to public school and he excelled very well. People constantly ask me how my son learnt to read so well- and I always say it is by attending Canyon Montessori. I love the After school care program where my other child is.It is a simple, calmer environment compared to other over loaded afterschool care programs in the neighborhood and the public school afterschool care. Of course, it is cheaper to send my child to the public school aftercare, but I want my child to be in a smaller group and get more attention and the extra amount is worth to me. They are also with similar age group students rather than with older students.
We are so happpy Mrs. Anushi (the founder) is in Canyon! Hands-on! Her methods are outstanding and I have personally witnessed the improvement of children facing challenges be able to overcome them! In her arms and under her wings, they all feel special and loved. She encourages them in ways we wouldn't even think of. My daughter is such a happy child! And Mrs. Anushi is instrumental in this process.
