My child has been at MELC for 2 years as a preschooler and she loves the program, as well as, the patient teachers. The Montessori has been a great fit for my outgoing, exploratory daughter. I am considering keeping her in this school for kindergarten as well. It is such a great alternative for a child's learning experience! Note: they do not allow for much parent involvement because they focus on the development of the child so much.
