Montessori Stepping Stones • Testimonials
We are excited to share a few of the testimonials our parents have written regarding the experience their children have had here. We have always incorporated an authentic Montessori Method of teaching, that is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. We feel a great responsibility to honor Dr. Montessori’s Method, which has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
“We think deciding to send our daughter to MSS is one of the best decisions my husband and I have made as parents. I am amazed at how much she has learned and grown in less than 2 months time. The teachers are amazing individuals of which our daughter can’t say enough good things about them. She loves her new friends, she loves Ms. Sue and is singing even more now than she ever was and can’t wait to go to school the next day.
She has even on occasion asked to get a lunchbox so she can stay all day with her friends! As a full time working mother, you worry about the choices you make – should I have stayed home longer, am I providing enough/the right opportunities, is she missing something in her life? MSS has helped to put those worries and concerns to rest. I know now she is in the right place getting everything she needs.
MSS is feeding her hunger to learn and helping her to become a great all around kid. I know as parents we must be involved, strong role models, teaching by our own behavior but with MSS helping to encourage and strengthen those expectations it is reassuring to know we are doing something right. Thanks again!”
As a certified teacher, I worried about what curriculum would be like for my granddaughters. They are both very bright and the eldest, a kindergartner had moved from a very highly rated district, Elkhorn Public Schools, in Omaha. Two months into the program, I knew everything would be fine. Our kindergartener was coming home and explaining the different continents… she was learning and loving every moment of it. We love this school. The rigor and curriculum are excellent and the socialization is easy and warm for the students. Our Vivienne and Adelyn have made nice friends and really do love their teachers. — Kimberly Johnson Rutledge
