My daughter loves this preschool. She's only been going for a year and she is already ahead for her age. She's only 3 and already reading books to me!! Best investment ever!

My niece is smart. She's not even in kindergarten yet, but largely in part to Newport Montessori School. She can read and she knows some basics about dance, art, music, and tennis. She aced her entrance exam into an honors program, she can give you a breakdown of every Disney film, and on some days she even gets to take field trips to the water park and Pink Berry.
