  • Before coming to Atascocita Montessori, my two girls were miserable at their daycare. They both cried every day and begged me not to take them there. Once we started going to AMS, they became much happier. They no longer cry about going to school - but about having to leave to go home! They love it there and we love everyone who works there. It has been the best situation ever for my children and I recommend it to all of my friends with kids.
