I would recommend steering clear of this school.  Their website implies that they treat children gently and respectfully, but this is not the case.  They treated my son so dreadfully that I had to report them from the state, after withdrawing him from their care.  They strongly discourage breastfeeding, treat parents rudely, and try to prevent parents from stopping by to check on their child.  They also differ in several important ways from true Montessori philosophy.
