If you re looking for a great preschool you should check out Bright Star Montessori in Albany. Our 4 years old daughter attends Bright Star Montessori and she simply loves it! We moved to Berkeley from Sweden during the fall and she has had troubles adjusting in the beginning as she did not know any English. It took only a couple of months for our daughter to catch on to English and now she loves her preschool. She learns a lot and she is happy to go there every day. Bright Star has an own garden, the children learn a lot about nature and they go also out for walks. They sing and have concerts and they learn about different cultures and arts. Our daughter has made a lot of new friends and she likes the staff as well. The director is very friendly and was very helpful in the beginning as our daughter always wanted to hold her hand when we were leaving her at the preschool during the first rough weeks. We can only say that we recommend Bright Star Montessori highly and that we and our daughter love it!

My son went to Bright Star for just a short time. I moved for work then had to move only 6 months later for the same reason. Swarna, the director, is astounding, as is all her staff. She was supportive, the teachers made my son feel at home and welcome. It was our best preschool experience out of many. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to Bright Star!
