I would love it if this Montessori offered a full language immersion (Spanish or French or other) like Montessori institute of Broward and many of the public kindergartens in the area do! It would make them much more competitive. This is one of the reasons I did not choose this school despite its proximity to where live as well as it's montessori philosophy! :-(

We had a terrible experience at Three Village Montessori. My son no longer attends- we have since moved to a much better, safer place and he is more comfortable. I am a long-time teacher and product of Montessori method myself. I am also not a believer in "pulling" a child out of school and enrolling them in another mid-year, but we had no choice. To make a long story short, my son was being bullied and pushed to do things beyond his developmental level as a 2 1/2 year old (examples: be the youngest student in the room and expected to emote/react at the level of his "peers" who were 4 and 5, go to the potty standing so "the other children would not make fun of his spraying", eat without spilling, etc.). We were told nothing negative. When I finally inquired, I heard different stories from different faculty members. His progress report was good. I again questioned his teachers when he seemed more aggressive and upset at home and they said "we believe in trying to work problems out with the children before parents get involved". Dismissive and passive. We feel that our kids' educational experiences are equally distributed between home and school- I guess they felt differently.

This is my son 3rd year in Three Village Montessori, he is in 1st grade now. We have to say that this is a wonderful experience for him. He is going happy every day and is very motivated at class. When I pick up him, he goes happy and telling me everything he learned that day. Ms. Roxane and Ms. Kathy are amazing as teachers and as human. They teach students to like to learn and there is no TEST stress. The Principal is very involved and is a very experienced in Montessori approach. We are a very satisfied parents and the most important, our son is very satisfied with this school.

Outstanding School! The Principal is very present and our daughter has improved during her first school year. We moved from Boston to Weston and we are very satisfied with this school.

This school is a best kept secret of Weston moms. Our 6-year-old is in elementary program and we could not be happier with her achievements: her handwriting is neat, she adds and subtracts 3-digit numbers, recently she started learning multiplications, her favorite subject is science. And most importantly she takes pride in her work. Due to small size of the school, children get a lot one-on-one attention from teachers. We communicate with teaching staff and school director on daily basis. Ms. Aurora cooks fresh and healthy lunches every day; our daughter loves them and quite often says that she asked for extra. This school is true to Montessori teaching methods. And it is not another commercialized private school with spoiled brads for students. Btw, almost all children in this school are from Weston.

I have had 2 kids in this school, Ms. Peggy is the BEST! She is patient, hard-working, and also really encourages the kids to focus and improve. I can't say enough about this teacher. If you can get in her class, there is no need to look elsewhere. One of my children had a different teacher one year, and my child really was allowed to fall through the cracks . Not all teachers are equal.

We love this school ! We came from New Jersey last year from other Montessori schools. This was the best of all. Our son loved going to school. Miss Peggy is the best ! She is very organized, has a great system to measure progress on each child and has shown how much she cares for all the children in her class. We love this being a small school environment. Everybody knows who you and who your child is.

During the 18 months my son attended this school we could not get any feedback from the teacher. The Directress was inconsistent with her policies regarding communication to the parents about children. I was shocked at the classroom crowding and the lack of inspiration among the teachers.

I found this school at short notice when my 5 year old was asked to leave a prestigious private school in the area as she was too smart for them to deal with! My older child had been in Montessori in a previous state for 7 years so I was very familiar with the concept of learning at your own pace and taking a 'whole child' approach to learning. I could not be happier with this school. The teachers are excellent and the philosophies of the school have just the right balance between being true to Montessori but also real world. The feedback system is excellent which is often an issue in the Montessori method. As a parent I feel very well informed of my child's progress on a monthly basis. The safety of the children is paramount however this is sometimes at the cost of parental involvement.

Children will learn all the subjects they will need for theri grade, but if they are capable for doing more advance job they can move forward. Most of the children finish above grade level but if your child had any difficulties in any subject this plece is great for them because their confidence will not be touch and he/she will catch up at their own pace.

My twin girls have attended Three Village Montessori since they were 3 years old. I am a true believer in the Montessori system. When I moved to Weston I was looking for a good and real Montessori school. I visited all the schools of the area and I was surprised how hard it was to find the real thing... well trained teachers, good and sufficient material, etc. I can tell you Three Village Montessori is great. My girls turned five and three months and are reading fluently and confidently. They are so interested in numbers, animals and general culture. I am constantly amazed. And they are not even in Kindergarden level! I would recommedn the school and Montessori system to anybody interested in giving their children a stress-free environment (no sad faces on their work!) that truly promotes love for learning, self-confidence, feeling of achievement and provides excellent education.

Three Village is a wonderful school. My daughter has been there for 4 years now and it has been an excellent experience all around. The teachers and staff are all committed and caring, as well as supremely qualified. The Montessori academic program has allowed my child to grow and excel well beyond her peers at other schools. I looked at many schools in the area and found none to be of such high standards in all areas. My only complaint would be the lack of after care and limited after school activities. But the quality of the education far exceeds this minor drawback.
