  • Excellent early childhood experience! Teachers are amazing at following each child's interests and encouraging them to develop their full potential. Very nice environment that feels very homelike. Can't say enough good things!

  • Horrible experience. Staff ranged from rude and insensitive to downright negligent. They are not supportive of breastfeeding practices. Not in the spirit of Montessori with timeouts and constant yelling at children.

  • Horrible experience here. The teachers were rude, impatient and did not care for our child. They labeled her and could not be bothered to spend time with her. She felt unwanted and dreaded going to school there. We do not recommend this school to other parents.
