We are a returning family to CHMS. Our first child attended from age 3 to age 6, completing the three-year Montessori cycle. We could not have been happier with her experience. Now, at 10 years old, she often mentions how she wishes she could have stayed at CHMS forever! She made wonderful lifelong friendships and memories. We had maintained a relationship with the school since and now our second child is blessed to attend Kindergarten at CHMS. The teachers have gone above and beyond to ensure a safe in-person school environment this year and it's nothing short of remarkable that they have not had to close for even a day due to the pandemic. We are so impressed with the measures they've taken, and the quality of the education has remained top notch. Our child is receiving the best Montessori curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment. The wooded outdoor space cannot be beat: the landscape architect-designed space is the perfect natural place for children to enjoy nature. The school prioritizes outside time with extra-long recess, nature hikes, and gardening where the children learn about creating habitats for animals and caring for Mother Nature. There is playground equipment as well. We knew CHMS was one of the best preschools with the best Kindergarten program in the area, where each individual child's needs are met, but this year we have seen the resilience and perseverance of this little but mighty school. CHMS is a very special place.

My daughter attended Children's House Montessori School in Reston for Pre-K and Kindergarten, it's been almost a year since she graduated and we still talk about it with her) We loved it there! Everything and everyone - teachers, their Programm, the playground - I was very picky about finding the school that provides great outdoor activities as well as curriculum, they have it all. Each class has their own garden, they take care of plants, bugs and nature. Math, reading, Art Programm, field trips - amazing! We miss them all! I wish we could stay there for a 1st Grade too (and it's worth mentioning we have great public schools in the area and we still are very happy that we stayed for Kindergarten)! But first of all - you can trust your child being with caring professionals in a wonderful environment and it just feels like a family there.

CHMS is the perfect school for a growing and developing child! All the teachers are very kind, sweet, and patient to the children. Our child loves it there and looks forward to going every day. In fact, she tells us over any winter/summer breaks that she really wishes she could go to school every day! She has learned so much during her pre-school and pre-K years, the CHMS curriculum really does build on what they've learned from the previous year and it's amazing watching when something clicks in her brain.

Both of our children went to this lovely gem of a school, and it was a wonderful experience. The teachers are experienced and incredibly caring and patient. Their curriculum includes the Montessori approach to self-learning as well as structured lesson time. Both of my kids also enjoyed yoga, Spanish, gardening, and multi-cultural teachings. I highly recommend this amazing place!

CHMS of Reston is a little gem of a school, hidden amongst so many choices. We researched so many schools when we were looking for our child and we knew we had found the perfect place when they told us they would be lucky to have our child enroll. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Such a welcoming place that teaches about kindness, love and generosity besides the academic program. I have nothing but wonderful things to say!

It's been 2 wonderful years now that I have my daughter at CHMS and we plan to have my younger baby there too. Teachers are sweet, patient and the school has a great backyard where the kids play and do gardening. We also like that the school is not too big. My daughter is happy there and so are we.
