We have loved our son's time at Garden Gate! The Montessori learning style fosters great independence and problem solving skills, while allowing children to pursue subjects that they find interesting as well as improving in all academic areas. My son is 4 and is already reading and has improved his writing and number skills tremendously. The teachers are kind, caring, and fully committed to the success of each child. My son loved going to school each day and we are sad to be moving away from such a quality preschool. We definitely recommend it!
Our family has been a part of Garden Gate Montessori school for over 8 years. We could not have picked a better school for our children. Our older children continue to excel both academical and social. Our youngest can not wait to get to school every morning, and returns each afternoon excited to tell us about her day. We know it is a direct reflection of the passion the staff have for all the children at Garden Gate and the respect they have for each other. There are many preschool in the Plainfield area, but none can compare to Garden Gate!
