What our families think about Montessori

"Highly recommend it to anyone seeking care for their child. The programs are developmentally appropriate, staff are warm and welcoming, communication between the centre and home is outstanding and the menu for lunches and snacks is the best we’ve seen. Our oldest child had multiple food allergies while attending the centre and the policies in place made us comfortable and confident that he would be safe in their care each day.

We appreciate all the years of care this centre has offered our children. They go above and beyond for their families and children attending their programs!"

"It's a blessing to be able to walk out of those doors.. Although sad to leave my little guy who is 3 everyday , I know he is in good hands. I absolutely loved when on our way home i asked him how was his day and he said "Great! Momma do you know the planets?... " super exciting. Thank you to everyone there for making our transition better."
