Our child was one of the earliest students at Elements. Over ten years later we can still see the positive foundational impact the three years she spent at the school have made. Appreciation of nature, social responsibility, and consideration for others cannot be taught too early, and this school did a great job at that. Loved the community of parents as well. Families were very engaged.

Sending our daughter to Elements has been the single best parenting decision we have made yet! Our daughter started at Elements at 3 and attended for two school years. We are thrilled with her progress; from a learning, social, and independence perspective. We feel that the foundation Paula, Debbie, and the rest of the staff have helped her build will set her up for great success as she moves into public school. Even with the top-notch education and development aside, Elements is amazing. The school is large enough that there are plenty of friends to play and learn with, but small enough for us to know our daughter was getting plenty of individual attention and was always completely safe in their care. Elements have become more than a school for us, they are like an extension of our family. We will be sending our second kiddo to Elements in the fall and can`t recommend them enough for other children too! Thank you for all you do Paula, Debbie, and All!

At first, my husband was against sending the kids here but Elements had changed his mind. The school and the staff are wonderful. The kids hate being sick because they do not want to miss school. They teach them respect and independence. I rave about this school to every parent who has a child who is about to enter preschool.

Choosing Elements Montessori School for our 4-year-old daughter has been one of the best decisions we have made as parents. Elements is an incredibly warm, welcoming, nurturing environment. Paula does a beautiful job designing the curriculum, choosing materials, and creating a classroom that is engaging and full of adventure. D has grown leaps and bounds since starting at EMS. Her language continues to explode, her curiosity about the world is encouraged and continues to expand, and she is displaying more grace and courtesy than ever. I love that D's Guide is so available and approachable - I get feedback on D every single day which helps me feel connected and on top of her education. I really can`t recommend Elements enough!

Where to begin? I cannot say enough wonderful things about Elements Montessori! The teachers are true angels who put the well-being of the children above all else. They teach kindness, curiosity, and independence with an amazing amount of patience and love. My son comes home each day talking about how much he loves his teachers and his friends at school. When we began our search for a program I knew after contacting Paula, the founder, and director, that we had found a special place. By just speaking with her you know immediately by her enthusiasm how much she cares about creating a nurturing environment that will help in the growth of each little student that is special and unique in their own way. My son started at 2 y 10 months and in our first months there I can already see a remarkable shift in my son's focusing skills, independence, and creativity. We have now been at Elements going on three years and I am blown away by my son's math skills, inquisitive thoughts, and kind demeanor that I know he is taught each day at Montessori. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a standout Montessori Program!

Elements Montessori school is a sacred space for young children that provides enriching opportunities for students to learn and grow in every aspect of their personalities. From developing sweet and simple self-care and practical life skills such as handwashing, independent dressing, and table setting, to implementing the importance of a peaceful community saturated with kindness and loving care. Paula is truly a gift, her enthusiasm, passion, and love for her work and her students shine through at every moment. We have been so happy to have our son be a part of this community and utterly comfortable and trusting of the environment and teachers at Elements, who always have the best interests of their families at heart. The degree of parent involvement is another charming aspect, from birthday walks to volunteer opportunities and classroom celebrations, there is a multitude of chances to engage directly with your child and directly with the whole school community. We never want these years to end!

Elements Montessori School is truly a hidden gem on the south shore. Paula is a gifted teacher and guide. Every assistant teacher has been wonderful with our children. The preschool and kindergarten curriculum is impressive as it is an authentic Montessori program. Each part of their day is designed with an obvious amount of care and thoughtfulness. Most importantly, the school has a warm and nurturing environment. During the morning drop-off, you can see how excited the kids are to start their day. It's been an absolute joy to be part of the community!
