"Both our boys loved it at MCG. They're middle schoolers now but still remember their time with Miss Teresa and the teachers here. If you want a personalized experience for your little ones from people who live in our community instead of a corporate experience with a national chain, this is the place to be." -Eric Stotlar
"Absolutely hands down the best school I could have put my children in...What an amazing feeling it is to know my kids are being treated like more than just students....like family...." -Rachel Chacon
"...I feel incredibly lucky to have found a school where the teachers love to educate and respect each child and family..."
"As a two-parent working family, I value the options given by Montessori Children's Garden. Our family has been a part of this school community for the last five years and our children have not only been well-educated, but also well-cared for. The 3-6 classroom gave the tools our children needed to learn how to read and write and taught them what it means to exist in their environment. Through classroom exploration and manipulation, our children learned how to solve their problems and find answers to their questions. The elementary program transitioned them into independent learners, unafraid to make mistakes and then correct those same mistakes. Without the pressure of state testing scores, each of our children has been able to find the learning style that fits best and learn at his/her own speed until the task is mastered. I feel incredibly lucky to have found a school where the teachers love to educate and respect each child and family."

"...We have witnessed tremendous growth both academically and emotionally..."
"Our two sons are in their third and fourth year at Montessori Children’s Garden. Through this time, we have witnessed tremendous growth both academically and emotionally. The teachers at MCG are well in tune with the individual students’ needs, and promote a healthy and fun learning environment, centered around developing leadership qualities and independence from an early age. At MCG, they are more than just teachers, they are like family."

"...We give Montessori Children's Garden the highest recommendation..."
"From the moment we entered Montessori Children's Garden, we knew it was a special place. Our son was in awe at the various manipulatives and learning tools throughout the classroom and enamored with the new responsibilities he found there, like preparing his own snack and making his own work choices. He has taken on more responsibility at home, has increased confidence in all his interests and decisions and above all, takes pride in his school. The educational staff at MCG is second-to-none and they operate from a place of caring and love. We give this school the highest recommendation and just wish our older children could have attended here, too.
