Our daughter attended Datzyk for Kindergarten and we were beyond impressed with the growth and learning she had while there. This school has a very strong foundation in the Montessori theories of learning and uses them to not only teach the children academics but to build good character as well. I commend the teachers and staff on navigating through very uncertain times during the pandemic to foster an environment that was both conducive to learning and fun. The passion for children is alive at this school and we are so grateful to have been a part of the Datzyk community.

This is an amazing school you won't find anywhere else. The legacy of Mrs. Datzyk is carried on by her daughter who is a wonderful, caring person. She runs the school amazingly well. We wish we could stay forever. Our daughter has absolutely flourished there. We feel so fortunate to have been a part of this school's family.
