Our son attended Alpha Montessori from 14months until he was 5 years old and ready for kindergarten. We toured many schools, and nothing had felt right until a friend recommended Alpha-we went to check it out and it just felt like the right fit. Over the last 4 years Max has developed such special bonds with Alpha teachers, staff and classmates. He enjoys going to school (most of the time) and we are happy knowing that he will be more than prepared for Elementary school. The Montessori approach has taught Max so much in the classroom as well as helped him become a confident and independent child. Highly recommend checking out Alpha when you are vetting pre-schools/schools—and trust your mom gut!
