Our daughter has been at My First Montessori (MFM) over 3 years. We like the Montessori approach in general (it's good for self-motivated, inquisitive kids), and we like how MFM operates the school, including healthy snacks & lunches, lots of activities (art, dance, music, gymnastics, etc.) , optional language immersion in Spanish or Chinese, year-round operation, use of non-toxic janitorial products, minimal holidays, and a flexible curriculum (MFM is not a strict "AMI" type Montessori school but rather incorporates the best of traditional Montessori and modern teaching materials). Furthermore, the school exhibits a desire to constantly improve and is open to suggestions from parents. We also like the layout of the school, including the large atrium and big classrooms. This gives the school a very open feeling. Our daughter, who entered the school at the age of 13 months and is currently in pre-k, has excelled socially and academically at MFM and we are strongly considering keeping her there for kindergarten and 1st grade because of all the things mentioned above.
