Messiah Montessori holds such a special place in our hearts. The last few years at Messiah have been life changing for my daughter. I immediately noticed a physical and emotional change in her. The kind and patient staff eliminated all the educational and learning stressors that she dealt with at her previous school. She became confident in her work as a student and began to blossom socially. She wakes up every morning excited for school. I can't begin to say how thankful I am for the staff at Messiah Montessori for creating a safe and joyful atmosphere for my child to learn and grow.
