I sent both of my children to this Montessori School from the time they were toddlers all the way through Kindergarten. They are excelling in their new (elementary) school socially, academically, emotionally, etc. My husband and I toured many schools and felt this was, by far, the best Montessori school in the area. The entire staff: Administration, Teachers, Assistants, etc are extremely friendly, loving and warm. I always felt that not only were my children getting a great education, but that they were truly loved and cared for while in school. The school is beautiful, well-organized and clean. The Montessori Education is superior to any other. I was always amazed at how peaceful, kind and Independent the children were in the classrooms. My children LOVED coming everyday and often say they miss their Montessori school.

My second child is now at Naudain Academy and we have always been very happy with the school's environment and staff. They have a strong focus on fostering a love of learning and a child's independence that will serve them well through all of their schooling. We love the Montessori model of preschool and kindergarten and our older daughter went on to thrive in her public elementary school.

Best Montessori school in the area. I sent my 3 children to Naudain and they exceeded my expectations. Teachers and staff are very friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. They go above and beyond to give quality care and instruction. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for superior education for their children.

I have sent two children here and the teachers and staff are so professional and loving! This is a truly wonderful start to a child education. The only downfall is that they only go to Kindergarten. I strongly recommend this school.
