“Enrolling our kids in Reading Montessori school was a gift to them that will last a lifetime. They discovered the true love of learning and developed compassion and kindness for their fellow students.  The Montessori method teaches students to work independently, to learn from each other, and collaborate as a team.  All of the activities are self guided so each student earns a sense of accomplishment that builds their confidence. Our kids have flourished here and they are incredibly well prepared for entering first grade.
Outside of the classroom, the Reading Montessori school community has become like our second home. The teachers, staff, and other parents are such a supportive network. We have really love the family events throughout the year that bring us all together.”

“We have been incredibly happy with this preschool for our children. All of the teachers are highly skilled and dedicated to the Montessori approach to education. My children have learned so much from their incredible teachers, as well as from the other children in the program, and have made wonderful friends. Attention is paid to each child’s learning style, strengths, and areas of development, and the low student/teacher ratio allows the teachers to support each child through their own learning process. Fantastic extra activities, such as music and theater enrichment, take place regularly. So happy we chose this school!”

“I cannot say enough good things about this fantastic little preschool. The staff and teachers are so dedicated, involved, engaged and passionate about each and every child that comes through their doors. The low teacher to student ratio, serene environment, and wonderful enrichment opportunities put this school in a league of its own. I was so apprehensive about choosing a preschool but I am so happy that I chose Reading Montessori. We are so thankful that our son has had the opportunity to attend. He has thrived under their care and guidance. He loves going to school and always comes home happy and full of enthusiasm. Wonderful teachers and staff! We can’t thank them enough for making his preschool years such blissfully happy, safe and magical ones.”

“This is an amazing school. The level of devotion and care is not found in most preschools. They work very hard to find and explore the gifts each child brings to their classroom. It is a happy place where the children and teachers share the joy of learning.”

“Our daughter has completed her first year at Reading Montessori School. She was 2.9 years in September 2015, the youngest possible age, and we were concerned about the impact 5-mornings would have on her. She has thrived.
The consistent morning routine allowed for a quick adjustment, from her first time care outside our home. Transitions are a challenge for little ones, the teaching staff’s professionalism and compassion, alongside RMS’ peaceful environment, have allowed for tremendous growth, both socially and intellectually.”
