They never have homework. They should have something besides a filthy unwashed bear that looks like it's from the landfill.

They don't challenge kids at all. The children are mostly outside like its playtime all the time not an educational environment that we pay for.

They put the kids down by telling them they don't want them there. And one teacher said "I wish Lorie would tell them they couldn't come here but I guess I'll make them not want to be here." Rude rude rude!

There is a family who has children with behavioral problems the need different instructors but Lorie keeps them for the money. They are constantly filthy, violent with the smaller kids, and disruptive. The parents were told the school could handle it but the can't.

We're so disappointed in this school! Lorie Steele (directress/ teacher) is the only degreed teacher and the only one with a Montessori certification, she's never there. The school is always messy and there is no schedule. It's geared more towards daycare children but she has an elementary program as well. They are either always outside playing or playing in class, usually not with the Montessori tools but coloring. All the teachers but two are constantly sitting down, outside or inside, not interacting with the children. We pay $500 per child plus all the extra Lorie requires to support her and the school and she doesn't do anything. When we visit she's always in her office. I've researched other schools and they are very different. Montessori is supposed to teach children independent learning which is to get an activity have the teacher show you, practice independently, clean up and put it away. Very hands on. There are always activities left out, books on the floor, mess from the bird and other animals and the materials are unkempt. Lorie has had meetings or discussions about the school and the materials but it's all show. A group of us have had it after 2+ years of this its old. The price is not worth the cost. There is one teacher with 8-10 students, they have no idea what they're doing. They have a pottery room that my children have used once. My children should be doing more, a lot more for what we are paying. Currently Lorie is at the beach and not even two weeks ago she was on a five day trip. I wish there was another elementary Montessori school.

Overall the teachers do a great job, albeit a little disorganized at times. I wish Jeff City had more options for Montessori programs.

Fantastic school! the staff is wonderful and the curriculum is well developed and always geared to the student. the children have a great time learning and interacting while they build personal skills, responsibility, and critical thought. I wholeheartedly recommend Moreau Montessori.

Lori is the most kind hearted lady I have probably ever met. She really puts forth a lot of love and is absolutely devoted to the children who come to her Montessori School. Your Children are in very loving and capable hands when you go off to work.
