School Reviews

Our daughter has attended Hands On Montessori HOMS) for 13 months and we could not be happier. She became more independent almost immediately, and her communication skills have developed in such a positive way. I see her trying to resolve issues with friends outside of school using what she has learned at school. When I volunteer at HOMS, I get to see firsthand the approach to helping the children learn and understand more productive behavior that will be an important tool for the rest of their lives. Tools I didn't learn until I was an adult. You see what an amazing learning experience it is. I wish I had the chance to attend HOMS when I was a child. Our daughter knows and acknowledges how lucky she is. And Emily, the owner, is so responsive to questions and makes herself very available. We are so grateful that we found HOMS!
