About the Provider

Description: At Montessori School of Cedar Lane, Holly Brook Montessori and Hunter Mill Montessori, learning is based on the principles of education discovered and promoted by Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori was the first to discover and acknowledge the need for early education. Her discoveries have been verified by current educational research as well as over 100 years of successful implementation in schools around the world. Dr. Montessori was the first educator to observe how effortlessly a child absorbs from his environment from birth to age seven. Children at this age are acutely sensitive to the world around them. Impressions formed during this time have a lasting effect upon the child’s attitude toward learning and life itself. Dr. Montessori realized that it is necessary during this period for the child to find in his environment the tools to satisfy and stimulate his natural intellectual development. Our three schools provide the “prepared environment” utilizing the discoveries and methods of Dr. Montessori to help the child develop more fully the potential within him. Each school provides a program especially suited to the needs of the child and offers additional individual attention to the whole development of the child.

The Holly Brook Motessori school take every favor in their own term. They claimed to follow fairfax county off schedule when winter emergency alert is issued. In Jan 2014 ~ March 2014, we had 10 days off because of snow or ice. And fairfax county public school make up at least half of those. And we have to complain to Scott Smith many times, he finally decide to make up with 1 day and gave us pizza for last day. Come on - a slice of pizza traded for 8 missing days. He doesn't want to pay for part time worker at school when it is snow. So he will take advantage to save money. Sometiems, public school take off because temperature is too low for kids stay outside to wait for school bus and he decide to take day off too. What is your excuse, Mr. Smith (Not honest, cutting corner school owner)? I think the Vine school across is much better choice for your kid.

My child was being bully at pre-school (4 years old) in Holly Brook Montessori School . I have talked to teachers, and Scott Smith the director (owner) of the school about the problem. They told me there is no bully in the school it is just rough play and the other kid is working in progress. But I saw the kid push my son with both hands, yelling and shouting at him when my son draw his picture, told my son that you can not join us, calling my son's game is silly game. It broke my heart just watch my son keep quiet. One time, he even return home with bruise mark close to his spine. Another day, he had blood scar on his face. The problem is The director even ask me to withdraw my kid from school when I complain him over the phone. Then I found out the bully's parent go with the same church that owner Scott Smith is going. Not recommend to send your kids to this bully private Motessori school.
