My daughter (5) and son (2) have both been at MFS since they were 15 months old. We are so happy with everything the school has given our children and know they are in the very best hands. I can't believe how much they have both grown and amazed by all they have learned. I'm extremely impressed academically as, for example, my oldest names the continents and countries of South America. But beyond their ABCs, counting, colors, etc., they are extremely independent, truly well-mannered, and show enthusiasm for helping others. We are grateful for the teachers and lessons here and would recommend the school in a heartbeat.

Montessori Family School was a family to us where my son spend amazing and flourishing two years (PreK and K). The education is beyond books and includes the overall development of people skills and morals like empathy, working with other kids, discipline, how to eat, become independent, help other, communication.He loved his teachers and other kids and made a strong bond with them. My son feels very confidence with his grade 1 curriculum because of the strong foundational education provided here. We will certainly miss being there.

Montessori Family School has helped my son tremendously. I sent him for preschool and kindergarten. His confidence in his abilities has grown so much over these past couple years. He used to be hesitant to try new things if he thought it was something he wouldn't be good at, this included reading and writing. He didn't seem to even want to try. Now he has just finished kindergarten at Montessori Family School and wow, his reading amazes me and his handwriting is so nice and neat. I'm so grateful to all the teachers for helping my son! There are several classes at the school and all the teachers are very kind. I just love seeing my son being confident and trying new things. I would highly recommend this school!

I absolutely love this school. I have watched my eldest son flourish. I believe it is a combination of the Montessori teaching method as well as the teachers who provide the individualized attention to my son. My wife and I have enrolled our youngest as well. I look forward to seeing how this education benefits him as well
