Not all Montessori schools are created equal. There is a lot more to look for besides the Montessori materials. Village has the qualities that Montessori schools should have – well-trained teachers and staff, beautiful classrooms, and expansive outdoor environments. Most importantly, they respect the child.
As a parent, Village Montessori School has provided a caring learning environment for my daughter, and is almost an extension of our family. We appreciate the professional and friendly attitude of all the staff.
We wanted an alternative to traditional “daycare” – somewhere that learning could start at a very young age. The inclusion of Practical Life as part of the learning environment was also a big selling point for us. The more we learned about the science behind Montessori methods, the more this made sense to us.
I chose Montessori because I wanted my children to “love to learn.” Traditional education stifles that. We also wanted them to be independent thinkers and curious about our world and a Montessori education encourages that.
You have to take a “leap of faith” to pursue Montessori education for your child, but in the end you will be glad that you had the foresight to know the difference.
The information presented at the open house convinced us that Montessori was a more “natural” way to learn. The classrooms impressed us with their sophisticated learning materials.
Village Montessori School has provided the best way of guiding a young child to explore, imagine, and excel while enjoying the on-going process of learning which is something that will last them a lifetime.
I feel at home with the staff. They are very considerate and express a desire for the well-being of our children academically, emotionally, and socially. They earnestly seek information pertaining to the training of our children at home so that both their school and home life are in harmony.
I was looking for the best possible education for my twins. My husband and I came in to observe a class in session and were amazed at how well behaved the children were; also how conscientious and productive they were. The level at which they were working really impressed us.
My children have learned to be independent thinkers and creators. It clearly shows that Village Montessori School has achieved what Maria Montessori had envisioned.
