Ms Tina treats each child with such love and care. She listens, makes eye contact, and responds to each child with sincere concern. We are so very lucky to have found Ms Tina and Hayfield. We know our children are having a happy, productive, love filled childhood!! We couldn't be more pleased!
My son just completed a preschool year at Hayfield and we've been so pleased with his progress at this school compared to his previous preschool. He is now actually interested in doing his "work" at school, and it's been a pleasure watching him discover new educational subjects that appeal to him (geography!). This is our first experience with Montessori, and we love it. His teacher has been amazing - truly, she is a steady, calm, patient presence in the classroom, always there for questions and guidance, and always offering something more challenging when she can see the time is right for a particular student. Another great thing about Montessori - students work at their own pace.
The Hayfield campus is peaceful, green and safe. We have had ample demonstration that student and staff safety is a priority. After our experience at Hayfield with our oldest child, we will be very happy to send our youngest to Hayfield once she is old enough.
I love Hayfield because the teachers genuinely love the kids. When my daughter went from Pre-K to Kindergarten, the teachers and I cried together! I am grateful to have been a part of the awesome Hayfield community and that my kids have been a part of an excellent learning experience.
I love the teachers at Hayfield because they genuinely love the students. When my daughter went from Pre-K to Kindergarten, the teachers and I cried together!! Even when we did not have a child at the school, we knew we were always welcome there and we were always greeted with warm smiles and hugs upon our return. It is an awesome community of staff members and families, and I am grateful that my kids have been able to experience it.
Hayfield provides an incredible learning environment that encourages children to work independently and at their own pace. The teachers are wonderful and spend individual time with every student. I am grateful that our daughter started and continues her education in a place that fosters such a deep love of learning.
Our family is so thankful to have such amazing people help educate our daughter. We have been in the Hayfield family for three years and have seen her thrive and grow. She gets to learn at her pace, not what the rest of the class is doing. An environment like this truly means no child is left behind, or left bored while classmates catch up. Thank you Hayfield!
We have been very pleased with the PreK program at Hayfield. The students have many different opportunities to work independently, in groups, and one-on-one with the teacher-a perfect variety to meet the needs of all learning styles.
Every time I have visited I am amazed by the calm in the classroom. Each child may be working on a different task, but even the small ones are focused on their own work. The teachers offer a great deal of individual help but have also created an environment where the kids can work independently.
No homework is required until first grade and only on Monday through Thursday nights. My first grader spends around 15 minutes in the evenings on homework. He's able to complete this work on his own. We feel like it helps establish a good habit without restricting his after school activities.
