Don't be fooled by the less then flashy interior; this is a wonderful school, focused on your child. My daughter is completing her third year at Moppet and I am impressed again and again at the kind of work she has completed and the attention from teachers. The preschool room, where she started as a 2 year old, is warm and loving. The work she completed as a preschooler prepared her to write and read beautifully. Now she is in the half day kindergarten class, and at 4 she is reading and writing her own mini-books! The teachers really know her well and she is happy to be in the room each day. The younger class incorporates a lot of music and fingerplays in their learning, that you won't find at most Montessori schools we looked at in town. While the room is not flashy and bright like many newer places, it is clean and well cared for. The school is right next to a forest area, and the kids often get to go for walks in this beautiful space. The price is also really competitive compared to other Montessori programs in town. Wish I had known about this school when my other children were smaller.
MMC staff takes great pride in providing quality care and education for over 30 years in Naperville. Our continued goal is to ensure each child develops academically, physically, socially, and emotionally in a safe and nurturing environment. We have received positive feedback from all our families and would always welcome any comments for continued improvement. If you are interested in a self-motivated, self-directed Montessori environment for your child, please give us a call.
Both of my daughters attended Moppet and thrived there. The teachers have been with the school for years, and they are extremely skilled at directing the children to learn new material while maintaining a warm, positive environment. Their academic and social development has been simply amazing at this school.
