"As a professor in graduate medical education, I have a true appreciation of the education that Mrs. Monte and her teachers provide our children towards instilling a solid foundation and love of life-long learning that extended beyond their graduation into the elementary years. They have provided a comprehensive education with a sense of responsibility and level of maturity beyond their years. My 4 year old would come home with arts and crafts synchronized with songs about the microanatomy of our musculoskeletal system that I recalled only learning in medical school. I know I speak for many parents when we all sense that any continuing program after Ms. Monte's school will be a disappointment.

"What a wonderful school. The facility is very clean and extremely welcoming. The teachers are excellent and truly care about the well being of their students. I say students, because these kids actually learn. They learn math, science, history, geography -- it amazes me that a 4 year old can tell me about the 7 continents, how to add numbers in the thousands, and even the diets of various sea creatures. There are special nights for Fathers and Mothers, creating special memories for all of the family members. The year ends with a fantastic holiday performance (you've never seen a cuter event than this) and even a visit from Santa Claus. I can't say enough about this school! The owner Mrs. Monte is a very kind, loving woman. The assistant director, Ms. Kacie, is well organized, thorough, and very sweet."
"The owner of this school, Mrs. Monte is the most wonderful lady, the children love her as do the parents. Her school is perfect, as far as Montessori schools go. You won't find one like this. The kids come home with the most interesting facts that they learned in school. Each year they pick a subject, one year it was American History, another year it was the continents. My sons says things like Neil Armstrong was the first man to step on the moon. Her Mother's Day Tea, is the BEST Mother's Day I have ever had. I have shopped preschools and I have not seen anything like this. My son counted to 200 hundred before kindergarten. It has the best of everything."
"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school. Would give it 10 stars if I could. The teachers are amazing, the curriculum is interesting and constantly changing to keep the children's interest, and my daughter has learned so much in one year. She loves the school and looks forward to going every day."
"I'm extremely happy with the school. Everything about the school is great -- the toys and "jobs" are clean and organized, all the teachers are wonderful with the children, and the staff makes a nice effort to make the parents feel welcome with every interaction.
This year, the focus was on the continents. Initially, I was a little surprised and wary because I thought it would be too big a topic for a 2.5 year old. But amazingly, he can recognize all the continents now and understands geography. He comes home singing songs everyday and knows all his letters and is even getting into math. Ultimately, he loves going to school and learning! Highly recommended!"
