We are so happy with our experience at CSM that I have wished and begged them to expand to elementary so we can stay even longer! We are so fortunate to be able to spend five fabulous years there. We have had two neighbors join the school after hearing me rave about it. The community CSM has created is so special, full of kindness and love. They instill a joy of learning and a strong foundation of skills that will serve children well into their adulthood. It's not only academics - they build real life skills, grace & courtesy, social & emotional resilience, and care of environment. I attribute my child's love of washing dishes and windows solely to the Montessori works she happily chooses in the classroom. She also has been able to participate in enrichment art, dance, and soccer classes during the school day, which is so convenient for working parents. The guides are well-trained and tenured. They managed to have continuous in-person school throughout the 2020-21 school year because they keep their classrooms and school environment so clean and safe. The before-care is free and the after-care is at a reasonable rate. We only need to use the after-care occasionally, and my child begs to be allowed to stay more often. Montessori is all about "follow the child" and she shows me every day that we made a great choice in joining CSM.

We've been at Cool Springs Montessori for about 18 months. My daughter started in the Toddler room and has since 'graduated' to the next room. In our experience, the teachers in both rooms have been very communicative, consistent and so helpful. The environment that they've created is calm and efficient yet fun and has encouraged responsibility, independence and kindness. I'm often in awe of what they can do and how that translates to my child at home. It's just wonderful. Additionally, the entire staff is responsive and so pleasant. The director is amazing, the office staff is kind and super helpful and the aftercare staff is so fun and responsible.I'm so grateful for them, particularly during Covid, for their attention to detail and their true dedication to the students and parents. They really care about their families and we can feel it.For so many reasons, I recommend them to everyone I know!
