My child has attended Dunedin Montessori for over a year and we are so thankful to have found it. For the first year and a half of her life she was watched by her grandmother while my husband and I worked so finding a school environment that was enriching but also as nurturing as Grandma's house was a tall order. The school is clean, the staff is amazing and our child is not just well taken care of but truly loved. The teachers and staff know each child's personality and make it a point to interact with them in ways that make them feel encouraged and excited when it comes to learning. My daughter knows she is safe and cared for and that piece of mind is priceless!

Dunedin Montessori Academy is an amazing school! My daughter has been a student there for almost a year now and we absolutely love it. The teachers are very caring and loving but as the same time extremely educational! Every single teacher in the school has been amazing to me and my daughter and I feel so lucky to have such great people looking after her while I'm at work. Since my daughter has been attending this school she has been absolutely thriving! I am so glad that we found Dunedin Montessori Academy and it will be so sad when she outgrows them!
