Our grandson attended this school for his kindergarten school year (2014-2015); and, as a result of their teaching methods he not only completed kindergarten with excellent reading and math skills, he is now attending first grade where the main focus of the school is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The STEM method is very demanding and because he was provided the necessary skills he is not only able to maintain but to thrive in his new environment. We've just received his first progress report and his overall grade in all subjects (reading, language, math, science and history) is an "A". We salute Sunnymead Montessori for it's ability to not only motivate the children but to stay in constant contact with the parents, thus providing a strong home-school connection.
I love this school. My son has been attending Sunnymead Montessori for a year and a half and he has learned so much! He just turned 5 in Jan and is learning what most children learn in first grade (Addition, subtraction, spelling, phonics, etc). If you have a son that has had problems in the traditional day care setting Sunnymead is the place for him. The staff is great and expect for the kid to take responsibility for their actions. If the child makes a mess at lunch, the child is expected to clean the mess up. When the kids have swim day, the kids get themselves ready with very little assistance from the teachers. It's a great place.
