Last year my son was at MSF and now my daughter is attending. I couldn't wish for a better program. All the teachers and staff create such a loving environment. Last Sunday my kids woke up and thought it was Monday and were actually disappointed that they didn't get to go to school! My son is now in kindergarten at public school and is far above the other students in math and reading. I attribute this to the Montessori program and the teachers at MSF. They are truly amazing.
My son attended MSF for one year and is now in public kindergarten. He is already reading at first grade level and doing first and second grade math. Most importantly, he loves school. Developing a love of school was my only goal in sending him to preschool. Once that is established, success in school follows naturally.
I believe this is one of the most important aspects of Montessori, and MSF. To quote Maria Montessori, “Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.”
I cannot imagine a more loving environment. I feel so comfortable that my children will be well cared for. If my kids have a rough morning, I can even check in with their teacher to see how the rest of their day is going. My son came home one day after a really rough week and told me, "Miss Bunmi said she would do anything for me." And I know she would have. Modeling compassion and caring is the best and really only way to develop it in others.
We love the friendliness of the MSF staff. Everyone communicates very well and the school is very organized. Our daughter loves all of her friends at school and is always excited to tell us what she has learned during the day!
