My wife and I toured three Montessori schools in the area last year for my two pre-school aged children. I was attracted to one school and my wife was adamant about Innovative. She had a gut feeling that this was the school for our children because she came away so well informed. One school year later, I can say my wife was right. This school and it's faculty have nothing but the best interest of the child at heart. I had no idea how impressive Montessori education was. I never appreciated my preschool children the way I do now. I look at them differently, treat them more respectfully and understand the importance of the family and school relationship. The one-on-one support we have received has changed me as a person. This school is a unique and special. My children are thriving, are independent and responsible. The detail and effort my kid's teachers put into their classroom environments and portfolios keep us amazed. Meet any teacher at this school and you will know what I am talking about.
I am so glad I found this small Montessori school for my son. I am just amazed at the quality of the staff. They really know what they are talking about! Perfect staff, perfect classrooms, perfect school! On the weekends, if we happen to pass by the school, I have heard my son say, "that's my school, I love it there!" or "Mommy can I go say hi my teacher is there, I see her car". Trust me, this Montessori school is amazing! You will not be disappointed.
Guaranteed the Best! When I found out Munir and Kathryn took over this school on facebook, I immediately enrolled my daughter here. These two are the cream of the crop. Definitely, the best Montessori can offer. If you can get your child in Kathryn's classroom, I promise this will be the best gift you can ever give your child. Kathryn was my instructor when I took my AMS Montessori teacher training in 1999.
When I first looked for pre-school for my then 18 month old, I looked at many different schools. By chance, I visited Innovative Montessori School (IMS). I was driving by and decided to check it out. It was the best decision I ever made. As soon as I walked in the school, the atmosphere was exactly what I was looking for in a school. The head of the school, Munir Shivji, was very informative about the school and Montessori teachings. On my second visit, I met the teacher. As soon as my clinging daughter met her, it was love at first sight.
“The Innovative Montessori School has proven to be one of the most enriching experiences for my two children. We chose the school because of the practical approach to learning. We stayed because of their standard of excellence and holistic approach to learning. The school has reinforced every value that our family holds in rearing our children. They have achieved the proper balance between the theory of learning and teaching social responsibility, which is a difficult undertaking. I believe the school has given my two children an excellent head start in their lifelong pursuits.”
