We absolutely love this school. As a former teacher, psychologist, and mom of 3, I can say without hesitation this school will love on your kids while always teaching them about the world around them. They will be well-rounded, care for their peers, and ready for Kindergarten. Highly recommend Otis Montessori!

We love this school for our son. He have learn so much since starting at Otis Montessori Academy. He be to other Preschool and they didn't teach him anything and it costed a lot more money. Other Preschool, was more like a daycare he just play all day and they didn't even teach him manners. Since starting at Otis, our son is better behaved and so are the other children at Otis. Otis's Teacher Assist teach our son manners and respect for others. The teachers are very patience and all Otis's staff are very helpful and accommodating. The place is a perfect size, not too small and not too big. When our son went to the other Preschool that was too big, it took him a month to get use to the place and staff. At Otis, our son was comfortable with the place and staff in 2 days. Otis is cleaned and have many educational materials and tools for Preschool age to pre-K. We will also put our second son their when he is older enough. We have recommended Otis to our friends and co-workers.

Otis Montessori was a wonderful match for our daughter. She spent two years in part time programs there that included: pre-reading and beginning reading, introduction to mathematics, socialization and interaction skills, physical skills, telling time, etc. The teachers are very skilled and compassionate and foster an atmosphere of kindness, learning, and fun. Best thing I ever did for my kid was to give her those preschool years there - when she was ready for kindergarten, she was ahead of her class and ready to take on the world!
