I am a parent of two children currently attending CWBM (4.5 and 17 months). As a parent I find it is my responsibility to fully evaluate any school prior to sending my children to attend. I have observed several Day Care/Pre-Schools in the Eagle River/Anchorage areas and have found CWBM to be the best. I am surprised by the reviews I read here on YP. I urge you to go to the school and observe the classroom for your child’s age group. Personally speak with the administration prior to forming an opinion on reviews listed here in the YP. Also ask yourself, when do people write reviews, are they motivated to write a review when they are happy and satisfied or when they are disgruntled? CWBM has loved and cared for both of my children responding to my needs and requests immediately working with me in a caring manner, but also challenging me as a parent to think outside of the box. I have a girl (4.5) and a boy (17 months). The other day, my daughter used the bathroom before we went home and asked me to help her, the teacher said, “who is going to help her if you are not here and winked.” She was absolutely right. The school has boundaries and limits that each child must follow while working in a safe environment where they can freely grow and explore. CWBM addresses unacceptable behavior of children immediately and will tell you when your child is sick and should stay home. They address the root of the problem to ensure everyone is safe and healthy. My son pulled hair and they were on top of this issue immediately to ensure we followed up at home and vs. versa. My daughter changed classrooms and did not nap for 4/5 days the following week. I immediately went to speak with Maria and the teachers in the classroom. The issue was immediately addressed, I spoke with my daughter with the teachers and she has napped each day since raising this issue. I am impressed with the responsibility and accountability this school has upheld with my children and with my husband and I as parents. Marsha P. .

Children’s World Bilingual Montessori has my heart. It balances the Montessori Method with a nurturing spirit. My daughter is happy and eager to see her friends, she learns Spanish and other amazing things, but more than that, she learn to be a wonderful person – grace, courtesy, kindness, love, friendship – those are important pieces of life to me. All the teachers and also the office staff are wonderful people who bring their own gifts. I trust them with my daughter because they love her and guide her in a truly meaningful way. I could not ask for a better Montessori environment. I am continually astounded by the level of reading, writing, math, and creativity I see the children at CWBM demonstrating. The fact that they have accomplished so much at such a young age while being so engaged and loving everything about what they are doing is remarkable. I looked at a large number of Montessori programs in Anchorage and I could not be happier with the choice I ended up making. From the moment we toured this school, it was clear that this is a truly special place.
I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Rabbit Creek Preschool for my boys. As a stay at home mom, I almost felt the boys would be starting school at a social disadvantage, having never been to daycare. But I also didn't want to place them in an aggressive academic situation. Finding Rabbit Creek Preschool, recommended from another mom, was the perfect fit. A creative space, learning opportunities with no pressure, lots of parent participation easing the transition from home to school, and enough structure to prepare them for kindergarten, but not so much that they didn't want to go. The teachers are wonderful at creating themes to keep the classroom evolving. Some of my favorites are the famed "circus" week, fire safety week, and all of the holiday partys (parent planned). The playdates arranged by classroom coordinators strengthen the classroom friendships (and parent ones too). I would recommend Rabbit Creek Preschool to anyone who is looking for a preschool setting for their children.
