I went thru a few nannies and decided to try Montessori. My son started at 18 months. He has learned so much from manners, to dressing himself, potty training, etc. The teachers don't just sit him in front of a tv and let him play all day. There is weekly lesson plans. The teachers care and I know he is safe.

I am so grateful for not only the attention my son receives but the love as well. The teachers care and treat the children as there own. I couldn't ask for a better learning environment for my child

I like Montessori at Riverton because they feel like an extension of family for our son. He has close friends there and the teachers care for and love my child as thier own. It is hard to find a school like this in general and the fact that they are so good with children is huge. I also love seeing what my child learns and seeing results everyday and knowing my child is safe at school.

My friend`s son Leonardo Hill attends this school and it has made such a difference in their family having a school that really teaches him to be independent and self-driven rather than only focusing on academia. Highly recommend!

My son has some learning disabilities and Montessori has been so far the best approach, hands on learning and teacher here are amazing, we have try public schools and charter schools and nothing has made such a greater impact on my sons learning then at Montessori

I have 2 children ages 2 & 3 who have been attending this school year. Every day my children wake up and ask " Do we have school today?" They love Ms. Jodie and are excited about school, and learning! The staff are all very professional, caring, and highly skilled. My little girl says almost every day "I am so excited to see Ms. Jodie!" Ms. Jodie has been such a gift to our family, she regularly texts me pictures, and updates. She has set such a positive tone for my children's first educational experience, I could not ask for a better teacher! I would highly recommend this wonderful program!

My two year old started at Montssori at Riverton in September. I have seen such growth in him in just a few short months. I immediately noticed his vocabulary exploded--tons of new words, and full sentences. Since starting at MAR, he wants to help with everything I'm doing. He wants to be involved in the world he's living in, instead of the world just happening to him. I LOVE THIS! He has also made great strides socially and loves going to school each day to see his friends and his teachers. Ms. Jodie has been such a blessing in his little world. He absolutely loves her. I would highly recommend Montessori at Riverton to anyone trying to find an avenue for their youngsters to blossom.

My child has been at this school for 3 years and she has blossomed. I am thrilled with the quality of the teachers and the interest they take in every child's education. She is progressing academically far better than any other school we've placed her in. She now has an excellent chance for a great education.

My child has had the best experience at Montessori of Riverton. Ms. Wendi and the rest of the staff are so kind and caring and makes you feel so confident when you leave your child in their hands. My little one loves this school and all that they offer. I'm amazed by the fun and exciting new things that I hear from my little one. I highly recommend this school to anyone.

My first grader and preschooler went to Montessori at Riverton last year and we were very happy with it. There is a positive feeling there and I think all the children are valued for their unique gifts. The grounds are amazing and our kids loved playing outside at school.

My children have been taught by Miss Valerie in her Montessori school. Not only did they receive the highest quality of education, but her kind and caring ways were invaluable. Montessori at Riverton gives your children a quality classroom education, field trips that allow hands on learning, and a kind of caring and concern I have yet to find anywhere else. Montessori at Riverton is the best.
