As a Montessori alum myself, I am a huge advocate of the philosophies and methodologies inherent in the Montessori curriculum. I know first-hand the benefits of teaching children to think creatively and independently. Our children were enrolled in another Montessori program when they turned 2.5 and 3, respectively. They absolutely thrived. We transferred to Town & Country in September 2012, as the school's calendar maps to that of the public school. It has been a tremendous experience on all fronts. It wasn't until our initial conference that we realized the extent to which the teachers truly understood our child. Their in-depth assessment of his strengths, weaknesses, personality, social nature, hot buttons, etc. allowed them to customize his days to ensure he's challenged intellectually, yet nurtured. At 4.5, he reads better than most 7-year-olds, he has cultivated great social skills, his confidence in approaching new tasks has only increased, and best of all, he's eager to go to school every day. Communication with school leaders is easy and approachable (e-mail, phone, or in-person) and the parent community is welcoming and friendly. It has fully exceeded all our expectations!

Teachers are very talented and caring. All age levels are combined in classroom - which works beautifully. Music, Spanish, Yoga and Science are extras. High quality Montessori materials are presented in a very organized way. Parents hold monthly coffees and are very involved.

Wonderful Montessori preschool program! Our daughters in her year and our son is starting next year. The teachers are highly trained, nurturing and engaged, and the physical space is beautiful- floor to ceiling windows! Great group of parents, everyone is really invested in giving their child a great start.
