"I could not be happier with the professionalism, nurturing atmosphere and flexibility of both the staff and the director of this school. I also completely disagree with another reviewer who states that children are pushed academically at this school. I have two older children and anyone who knows about child development can tell you that children are naturally curious and can grasp many concepts (such as division) a lot earlier than most traditional schools will have you believe. In conclusion, I feel very comfortable with this school and appreciate the information I was given."
"I wanted to send you a note of appreciation for the opportunity to learn about the "how and why" behind what Ms. Jodi is doing in her classroom. She has always been helpful with ideas and advice to help me communicate better with Riley when I've expressed challenges we've faced. We've incorporated a lot of the classroom routine into our home life in an effort to make Riley's world consistent and give her the same opportunities for independence and learning at home as she has at school. Never would I have thought a 2-year-old was capable of this level of responsibility and independence prior to seeing what she has accomplished in your school. Thank you, to you and Jodi. I realize that both of us attend and learn from your school and I look forward to participating in future opportunities you provide parents to learn more about your approach."
"Thank you so very much for your love and support over the years. What you do for the kids in your school is truly amazing. I am so appreciative of the patience and understanding you've shown to us and I know that what Nori has gained here will help her throughout her life. Thank you!"
"Montessori is not for everyone. But if you are looking for an exceptional education for your child Montessori ONE is the place to be. The staff is held to high standards, with great educational backgrounds, and the director, Tina Patel, works hard at covering every aspect of running a school. The school is based upon work, but during the summers the school offers cultural experiences that most children this age are not exposed to. It is an AMAZING school if you are looking for an academic environment for your child and to prepare them for their many years in school. Research says that this age is the most significant for children, and that they are like sponges at this young of an age."
"My wife and I enrolled our three year old son in the program at Montessori ONE halfway through the academic year, depressed and discouraged by his experience in another school where he had suffered for want of stimulation, for want of the nurturing structure of a genuine Montessori program. In less than a week at Montessori ONE we had our old boy back -- and more, much more! He was talking and singing and teaching us yoga. He was excited about school again, eager each day to reunite with his teachers and classmates. Since then, we have been deeply impressed by the professionalism of both Montessori ONE Director, Tina Patel, and her teachers, by the depth of their training, and by their obvious love of children. One has only to see the building itself to appreciate the scope of Tina's vision for the school. The instant one crosses the threshold there one feels at peace, at home."
