My son completed the 2's program at Canaan Ridge last year, and we are back for the 3's program this year. We have found it to be an incredibly nurturing, wonderful place just the right mix of a relaxed Montessori program with art and music that has provided him with a great introduction to school. My son loved doing daily well-planned art projects and enjoyed music lessons and story time. He loved his teachers and the principal and staff. Canaan Ridge has two beautiful playgrounds for sunny days and a large indoor play space when the weather is bad. Because of their small class sizes, they could tailor the teaching to each child and allow each child to progress according to his own abilities. For example, if a three-year-old showed interest in reading, a teacher worked individually with the child each day to foster their development. We also found the administration to be extremely flexible and accommodating.

Very strong academically, good values, individual attention along with a happy nurturing environment. My children learned to love to study and are inquisitive thanks to all the great teachers at this school! Highly recommended.
