This school is HORRIBLE. I say this with 100% honesty. My son came home and stated a teacher was "thumping him" on his head when he would do something wrong. The owner (Ms. Kaye) is a horrible person that has no feelings for the human race and has no business running a children's facility. Unfortunately, I at one time thought they were awesome and I could trust them with my children, but I was proven wrong. Just do your research before deciding upon this daycare. ~ Concerned parent

The people are very nice and love kids and the kids are very happy there. They are also very flexible and happy to help in any way they can. You can volunteer time and get a rebate on your kids' tuition. If one of your kids already go there, they'll accept your other kids even if they are full. I highly recommend. They are also competitively priced, offer lunches and snacks so you don't have to bring anything and it is at no extra cost. They are also open from very early to very late which makes for a lot of convenience. My two kids go to day care there. I also teach French to the elementary kids. Both the day care and the elementary school are great. I highly recommend.

My son attended Tomorrow's Promise for two and a half years (he is now 3). He loved it! He became very attached to the teachers and his classmates. I was amazed by the things he was learning. Having older children in his class taught him things that I expected to be above his level of understanding. I recently moved to another city and am finding that the montessori schools here are twice as much as Tomorrow's Promise. Great teachers and a good price!

Both of my children attend Tomorrows Promise. My daughter for after school care and my son as a student in their elementary school program. TPMS is a very clean, organized school. The teachers very much care about the wellbeing of the children and it shows. I would recommend this school to any parent in the area wether they are looking for childcare or elementary school.

I'm an education major at SHSU. I researched Montessori before observing. Seeing children moving around instead of sitting in their seats listening to the teacher tell them what to do could be interpreted as chaos. However, if you watch only two or three children at a time, you begin to realize the learning going on with each child and how the teacher guides the child rather than dictating their every movement. A low student teacher ratio is desired when everyone does the same thing at the same time. In Montessori you don't teach classes (numbers) you teach children (individuals.) The goal is not just to teach the material but to facilitate the child s ability to learn on their own (problem solving). The nature of the classroom encourages children to help each other (cooperation). Taught 'how to learn' not how to regurgitate the test answers. Great School! Follows Montessori Standards!

Two of my children have attended Pre-K here this year for the last eight months. In that time, the school has allowed the class size of both Pre-K classes to grow to 34 students each. Each class has one teacher and one aide. In the public school, I could have gotten them in a class of 16 with one teacher and one aide. I am very disappointed at the focus on money making, rather on student attention. There is no way two adults can sufficiently handle 34 5 year olds. Also, my husband had taken cupcakes to my son's class for his birthday, but was told at the end of the day that my son was acting up that day so they did not celebrate. The teacher was absent, and the aide was left alone to handle the children, and we were not contacted. Not okay.

My daughter has attended this school since she was 14 months old; she is now 5. I like the Montessori approach to education. She was reading at 4, she knows Spanish, is learning French and has been proficient in Math and writing. It seems to me that the teachers take a special interest in my child, and I am welcome to 'drop in' at anytime to see how she's progressing. The children play a lot outside at least 2X a day, which is completely important to their development. Tomorrow's Promise has an outstanding Summer program. Once a week is Splashtown and skating (different days) and 2 field trips a week to museums or other fun places. Also, the school is Christian based. Prayers are said, Pledge of Allegiance is recited with 'Under God'. No one is afraid to acknowledge religion. I love this school & my child is always excited about going to school - everyday.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
