Our almost 3 year old son loves Ava Wanas. The director and staff are dedicated, caring and proactive with engaging all the children. They are true to the Montessori method. They provide exceptional quality of education and care.  They are reasonably priced. We've placed our son to two different child centers and had a baby sitter. The care from the child care centers were awful! The Baby sitter was more interested in getting paid. Ava Wanas is and has been a positive learning environment!  His attitude changed for the better. From the first day of picking him up, he is calm and engaged. I cannot stress this school is a hidden gem. Thank you Ava Wanas!

I have two children (ages 3/5) who have attended AWMS for one year so far and will both continue through the (accredited) kindergarten program. From my plentiful child care experience, (nanny/daycare/regular preschool)this school has been everything I could have asked for and more. The Director and Staff of the school care so much for the children, and they all communicate very well with the parents. There has been virtually no turnover, and the staff has been amazing with the children. My kids love it there- they spend quite a good amount of time outdoors, they help prepare the food they eat (often right from the school garden they tend) and they know more about flowers and bugs than I do. My daughter has been reading since she turned 4, and I owe it all to the school since we are FT working parents. From my research and in my opinion, it is a shame that the regular school system does not follow more of the Montessori Method. I have been thrilled with the decision for our kids to attend this school, and I am searching for another Montessori school with a similar feel to it as they go beyond kindergarten.
