The Montessori Children's Academy has provided an outstanding education for both of my children. They are curious and inquisitive children that love to learn because of the exceptional institution that has been established to nurture and cultivate young minds.

My third child will be graduating from kindergarten at The Montessori Children's Academy next month. Six years ago when we enrolled, I NEVER would've guessed just how much this school would come to mean to my family. Academically, the implementation of the Montessori methodology is superb and all three of my children have blossomed! Socially, they have all thrived from their interactions with their peers and teachers. [In reference to the school's bullying policy - as mentioned in another review - it is clearly stated in the parent handbook and the Director is VERY thorough in her follow through on ALL policies.] The teachers and other parents are warm and welcoming, and the atmosphere of the school is positive and nurturing. The school offers parent workshops that are very helpful for parents interested in learning more. If my family was not moving out of state, my husband and I had already decided our youngest would be attending 1st grade at the academy next year. I can only hope that we are able to locate a school of this high quality in Virginia. I truly feel that we are leaving our extended family. DEFINITELY worth checking out for Pre-K through Elementary. Excellent school!!!

I am new to the Montessori method and, quite frankly, was a skeptic. On the recommendation of a friend I enrolled my child. WOW! She is thriving here. Everyday she comes home with a fire in her eyes. This is just what I want to see as a parent. Her teacher is caring and supportive as is the entire school. Communication is open and so is the door. I can sit and watch her class whenever I want. I am so happy to have found this school and so is my daughter!
