I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The school is okay. My child goes without complaining. However, there is definitely a communication problem with parents and teachers. When we address issues, they are so defensive instead of focusing on issues. They are not responsive.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This morning my 4-year-old son happily told me, “I want to go to school today! I just want to go to school!” This is not the first time he’s said that; he’ll even ask to go to school on the weekends! My son has been going to the Montessori Learning School for the past 3 years, and my infant daughter just started going the beginning of this year. I think the best thing about the Montessori Learning School is my kids are obviously happy with their warm and caring teachers; knowing my kids feel safe and secure makes it easier for me to leave them each day to go to work. Every morning my son walks straight into the classroom, puts his lunchbox in his cubby, and finds a “job” to do. When asked which job is his favorite, he said, “I think I like all things: sandpaper letters, stamps, movable alphabet, and paper.” He has such pride in everything he’s learning! My daughter reaches her arms out to her teacher every morning with a broad smile on her face. She is always so excited to be with her friends (teachers included!) and to get to explore her world through infant-appropriate Montessori activities. The Montessori Learning School is a fabulous environment for young child care and early learning! I highly, highly recommend this school!
