What our families think about Montessori

"Our daughter truly loves coming to school and she speaks about Miss Hollis and the other teachers often. It is so evident that she feels comfortable there and truly happy to learn from all of you and the other kids. It is beyond a doubt so reassuring as a parent to know that your child’s introduction to formal learning is a positive one and in such a caring environment. We are looking forward to another year at Manotick Montessori!!"

"Arianna loves attending the Manotick Montessori School and it has made the transition (away from being at home with me all day) way easier then expected. Ms. Helen the head of the Toddler program, is absolutely wonderful and a huge asset to the program; her advice and experience is invaluable and her approach to raising children mirrors our own. Ms. Helen and all of the teachers in the Toddler 1 room go above and beyond to take excellent care of our child. We are completely confident in their expertise and abilities and we think that Arianna is getting the best possible start to her education through the Manotick Montessori School."
