Child Garden Montessori School 2

Posted May 17, 2015
- a parent
Our son has been at Child Garden for 1 year, first in the infant room, now in the toddler room. Since he started, he has had a total of 10 teachers, 8 of whom have left (not counting the teacher who was hired and there for only 2 days). This is a shocking amount of teacher turnover for a school this expensive, and it speaks to systemic problems in the school. The director has been vague and defensive when we've asked about the turnover and what the plan is to increase stability. In theory, Child Garden has the potential to be a good school, but a school's quality is determined by its teachers, and it doesn't matter how great the teachers are if they don't stay at the school. We are currently looking into moving our son to another school. I'm afraid that I couldn't recommend Child Garden to other parents, given our experience.

My son has attended Childgarden since 2010. The teachers are really wonderful, the education director is incredibly experienced, and his classroom is peaceful and well equipped. He's now five years old and loves math, reading, and art. The school did hit a rough patch for a bit but is now in a great place. Overall, we have had a great experience.

Our daughter attended Child Garden in 2006-2008 and we loved it! We were so excited to get her younger brother in the school in September 2014 but there is a new director there. She lacks experience and acted in an unprofessional way several times before we found a new school.

This school has really turned around recently. We started there in 2013 and some parents did mention that there were some issues. Nothing major, just with communication mostly. The staff is great and the work the kids do is excellent. Things in the past month or two have really improved.

We used to really love this school. The teachers were really amazing and my kids were excelling. But they have a new Director and in the past 5 months all the head teachers from the 4 classrooms (from infant to preschool) have left due to dissatisfaction with the leadership. And many of the assistant teachers have left as well. It is heart wrenching as a parent to see it happen. I would not recommend the school at this time.

We left this location due to poor communication and staff turnover. We opted for a different Montessori program.
