This is our 2nd year at Children's Montessori School, and our son has come leaps and bounds. The teachers make my son feel comfortable, happy and confident. Through the different "lessons" that the kids are taught to do and eventually "master", the children are taught to focus their attention on one thing at a time. You would be surprised how exponential the carry over from school-life to home-life is. Merely attending a "non-montessori" vs a montessori children's birthday party, shows parents the huge differences between the "run of the mill" preschooler, as compared to a preschooler that is attending Children's Montessori School. Although there was a "learning curve" on how to behave and act at school (for the child and the parents alike), my son adores his school, his friends and mostly his teachers. Another awesome aspect of this school is the Parent Community. We are a community of parents who care deeply about our kids education and well-being, and sharing our kids accomplishments and comments about school is a daily habit! If you have any question as to if you will like this school, I urge you to simply set up a tour and speak to the teachers.

Our children have attended CMS since Spring 2013 and we are confident that they are receiving a quality education. The Montessori method has been beneficial to both of our children, both in the Primary and Elementary classrooms. The teacher quality is exceptional. They truly care about each student in their care. We strongly believe in the Montessori Method which offers research and evidence to supporting their techniques. I would recommend CMS to any parent looking for a high quality school for their child.
