Our 19 month old son goes here. He stayed at home with me for over a year and then I went back to work and he went to daycare. He was at a different place before here, and we had so many problems. Switching to Montessori was the BEST decision we ever made! The director is very hands on, and his teachers are great. The student to teacher ratio is very low which I love. The place is always immaculately clean (he was constantly sick at his other daycare and we don't deal with this at all anymore)- and we get a written report everyday of what he has eaten, dirty diapers etc. I would recommend this place to anyone!
My children are 10 and 8 years old and they have been here since birth. As a toddler my oldest daughter came home naming shapes like octagons, pentagons, and hexagon. They learned a great deal from their teacher through the early pre-k and on into the pre-k program. My children love the teachers and enjoy coming to the center. I have a difficult time getting them to leave each night.
Both of my children have gone to the co-op. The teachers were all very nurturing and helped guide them to be independent thinkers. I really was amazed at how much my children learned by play and formal teaching. It is difficult to find school like Northaven where I could participate in their learning.
