What people are saying...

Warm and responsive community...

Mara Castro and the Mis Manos Montessori staff have created a warm and responsive community for young children. In her Mis Manos classroom, my daughter was surrounded by adults with decades of experience and a thorough knowledge of child development. They created a beautiful learning environment for the children and organized a structured schedule filled with a variety of learning activities and opportunities for growth. The Montessori philosophy was especially beneficial to my daughter's language, literacy, math, and fine motor skills. The campus is lovingly curated and located in a beautiful desert landscape. Mis Manos Montessori is a treasure among Tucson early childhood programs.

With gratitude...

Our experience with you all at MMMS has been so wonderful. We have learned how to be better parents! We have fully enjoyed watching our daughter blossom with your guidance. We will surely miss you all more than we can express. I get sad thinking about taking her away from the school and friends that she loves so much but also feel excited knowing what is in store for her and us will enrich our lives so much.  

You have been more than graceful and warm towards us. Please know the deep gratitude we have for Mis Manos and the staff! We truly feel blessed to have been a part of the family.

It has been my pleasure...

It has been my pleasure to pick up my Grandson, once a week, to bring him from Mis Manos to his outside lessons, like swimming and gymnastics.  He has, of course, been in the Montessori program since he was 3 years old.  His development over this time has been an impressive showcase of the fine teachers and staff at your facility. Every week I have asked him what he has been learning, and his development and fund of knowledge is a source of constant discussion and amazement to me and family members.  He demonstrates a maturity beyond his years, and that too is a credit to the fine instruction and people of your school.  You have exceeded my fondest hopes. This note is in appreciation for all that you do, you are the best.
Thank you,
