What people are saying...

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,
Gerald J. Chessen M.D.
