“Our experience at The Place of Learning has been exceptional. Both my kids joined this montessori as babies and grew up to be confident inquisitive kids. The teachers are amazing, the montessori curriculum is second to none and each child is treated with care. The administration and teachers are truly invested in your child(ren)’s education and their growth as learners. Adjustments are made as needed to meet the needs of the student. There is a lot of emphasis on reading books to kids which make them keen readers and set the foundation for later life. In addition, the school environment is very pleasant and positive. There are ample places for kids to do activities, play, rest and learn. If you want to give your child(ren) a stellar early education while they are nurtured to be their best, most confident selves then I encourage you to check this school.”
“We have been sending our daughters to The Place for Learning for over two years now and I can tell you that the care they provide is superb. The teachers are so loving and truly tend to your children as if they are your own. The facilities are extremely clean and they continue to make extra efforts to ensure the best safety measures for all students.
I personally love the Montessori curriculum and it has been beautiful to see my daughters flourish in this environment as their curiosity about the world, their language and their critical thinking are beyond anything I would have expected for their age. I appreciate that they have outdoor activities everyday for all the children (my daughter’s favorite part of the day) and they have recently added yoga and dance class for the toddler classroom. I will add that the summer camp program is exceptional as the school connects with the Liberty Science Center for a nature extensive program where they learn about the environment and botany.
From a parent perspective, communication from the owners and teachers is consistent and timely and they truly make an effort to help the parents in anyway possible. My experience has been wonderful and I am truly thankful for The Place for Learning for providing a top class nurturing environment for my children.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of starting my son in The Place for Learning in the winter of 2021, and I’ve now relocated to a new town closer to work. Nearly 2 years and I only have wonderful things to say- the teachers love our children, teach them wholeheartedly, and help them grow as independent individuals, preparing them for the real world and social interactions that is to come. I definitely would have started my second child too. Now we are in a new school system and the teachers call my son a leader, just two days in. childcare is challenging and especially so, during the pandemic, but the administration did their best to staying open when able, being adaptable to working mom&dads’ needs, and following health policy guidelines. Childcare is so unique and dynamic and as parents we all only want the best. The Place for Learning broadened and strengthened my understanding of child development and education. I learned to apply their strategies at home, so these were lifelong lessons for me too. I’d definitely would return and would definitely recommend them to others.”
