A wonderful environment for babies and toddlers. All children are guided towards independence. My son absolutely loves it. He walks to school so happy and seem fur filled when I pick him up. Great community garden and playground. Highly recommended.
People are entitled to their opinion, so here is mine. My grandson had a wonderful experience at Crossway with all the current staff and administrators that are there now. A job relocation required a move out of state, but he is a five year old who reads at a 2nd grade level, and is a compassionate, curious, and interesting little boy. I credit this to his excellent introduction to Montessori education at Crossway and his parents commitment to being engaged in his education: learning about how Montessori education is different than traditional education; how to set up a Montessori home that gives children the ability to act independently where appropriate (child-sized dishes, shelves and drawers, brooms and dustpans, etc.) so the child can dress himself, set the table, help with clean-up); attending parents conferences and education programs; volunteering to help and attending school events; reading newsletters and flyers; supporting fund raising efforts; communicating with staff and teachers about any concerns ; asking for coaching about behavior issues; etc. Every family has challenges and has to work with any school to get the best benefit.
