About the Provider

Description: The Montessori concept of education allows children to experience the joy of learning at an early age. Turning Point Montessori is committed to providing a loving, safe, and secure environment in which the unfolding of your child's potential can be nurtured. Each child's efforts are encouraged and appreciated so that intellectual, moral, creative, and social growth flourishes.
Montessori is the approach to education, which recognizes and attempts to develop the potential of the young child. This is accomplished by means of a carefully prepared environment, directed by Montessori teachers trained by the Association Montessori International (AMI) using special teaching materials. The Montessori environment provides the opportunities whereby the child may attain inner discipline and self-management. Children develop responsibility for themselves in the context of the community while exploring all areas of learning at their own pace and according to their own interests.

One of the worst schools in the San Fernando Valley. All the reviews posted are from parents who were offered a discount from their tuition for the month in exchange for writing a good review. The teachers are nice to your face, but as soon as that door closes, it’s a whole different story. The school itself will not prepare your child. Be cautious please, as your kids are your life.

This school is absolutely amazing. My son went here from the time he was 2 1/2 and graduated Kindergarten. He was way above average in both reading and math when entering into a new school for 1st grade. All the teachers are amazing at working with the children in order for them to strive educationally. I put my trust not only into Montessori but into this school and watched him walk away with exceptional skills in all areas. I recommend them to anyone who asks where I sent my son.

I have three children, they have all attended Turning Point Montessori. The teachers, staff and director are amazing. They truly care for each child. The things that my children has learned helped them with their studies at school after graduating from Turning Point Montessori. Not only do the teachers, staff and director care for the children, but they also care for the families as well.

I can't say enough positive things about this Montessori. My eldest daughter graduated from Turning Point and my youngest is on her 2nd year there. The teachers are very nurturing and the way they teach has helped my eldest become one of the top students in her class. My youngest has speech problems and the owner has taken it upon herself to help with her speech development. She has gone from saying two words to full sentences. The education is phenomenal, but what makes Turning Point outstanding is how much the teachers and staff care about the families that are enrolled there. I have gone through tough times and Ms. Mary has helped me out each and every time. If it wasn't for her, I don't think I would have been able to turn my life around. I have been and will continue to recommend Turning Point to all my family and friends.

This school is a hidden gem in West Hills, I have had my daughter there for two years now. The staff is loving and nurturing and I cannot imagine anyone else taking care of her. She loves going in to school every day looking forward to seeing her teachers and friends. I love that they use the real Montessori method, you can really tell the difference from a school that use it from the ones who don't. Honestly as a parent the best thing you can do is go in and check it out for your self. You will see well behaved children doing their schoolwork and practical activities. This school is truly devoted in helping each child reach their full potential. My daughter originally had speech delay and now you would never guess because she speaks in full sentences and knows her sounds and at 3 years 11 months old she is beginning to read bob books. I'm so grateful for all of the attention the staff has placed on my child because I know with out them Kimberly would not be where she is today. Definitely a school i recommend :)

Terrible school, the owner who runs it is so mean to her staff and to this kids. I would stay far away from this school as possible, should be shut down.
