My family loves this school. I have seen a major improvement in my 2 year old's speaking and communication, word use, and discipline. We have been there for almost 10 months now and I am fully satisfied. I am VERY observant at what goes on and pop in various times in the day and have never had any question as to my daughters safety. If there ever HAS been an issue, the director and assistant director take my concerns very seriously and the matter is resolved within the DAY. The teachers are wonderful. Ms. Lidet has an amazing authority over her classroom, and it brings me so much joy to pick my daughter up and see the kids playing nicely under her close supervision, or sitting at the table as a class listening or participating intentely with Ms. Lidet. Ms. Maria and Ms. B. are also among my daughter's favorites, and she runs to them in the mornings most times forgetting to say bye to me. On top of these things I love that Parkwood involves the parents. There are monthly activities for the family to get involved in like the fall festival. There is no question in my mind that the Children's safety and learning are this schools top priority.
I have 2 children enrolled at Parkwood Montessori. We came from another Montessori school in the area. Their transition went smoothly. Now they run in the front door and can't wait to go to school. This is such a big change from their previous school. It makes my day great when I am leaving my happy children at PMA. Highly Recommend this place!
A HORRIBLE PLACE!! Learned it the hard way.. Had my son there for a year.. his first teacher was nice and caring, the administrators are horrible and make their school a money machine. They care about nothing!!! I had already given them our letter that we were leaving the school and one day when picking my son out he reported to me that he was inside the swimming pool for a boy! That is what you heard!! They let him go inside the pool with no safety in place, he does not know how to swim, did not have the authorization to be in the pool and reported that it was interesting that he did not want to stay in the pool after jumping in. The staff and Ms Director Puja, had no idea about the incident of him being in the pool until I went back inside trying to figure what was going on. I report was called to the state on them. They do not follow the ration per teacher and during parents time to pick up the kids they just bounce the kids in different classes so we do not see one teacher having 15 kids at once.. they do not follow the menu they send home, just surprise them popping there not during your regular hours and you can see all the wonderful things they have to offer.
My son started attending at 8 months old and has been there ever since. I love the staff - they have always been great to Aiden and speak to every child with respect.
