This preschool truly understands the needs of families who want their preschoolers to have a warm, welcoming environment that also stimulates them to learn. We were new to the area and worried about my 4 year-old’s reaction to his new school, but the teachers were sensitive to his needs and he has blossomed. He now knows how to read and understands math concepts that he did not know before. Also, the school brings in other instructors to teach at the school in the afternoons (if you wish to participate), such as art and ballet, so avoiding another pick up and drop off has been perfect for a working mom like me. – I.H., parent of 4 year old
Enrolling our children at CSM has been one of the best decisions we have made in their lives thus far. They absolutely love their classes and teachers. The teachers and staff are consistent each year, and extremely dedicated. My children are not just learning at great speeds (my oldest is not even 4 and is already learning to spell) but they are also developing a LOVE of learning which is so important! My toddler is thriving in their program – the things he can do independently since starting at CSM is amazing. Form their work, to their studies, to their playtime, to their social skills, I have seen my children grow in more ways than I could have imagined. I highly recommend this program to anyone! – C.N., parent of 4 year old and 2 year old
Our 5-year-old daughter has been a student at Cool Springs Montessori for almost three years now, and she is just THRIVING. All of the teachers are so caring and wonderful with her – she wakes up every day asking if it’s a school day! From the moment you walk into CSM, you know that your child is going to be well-cared for and loved while they are there.
Montessori education teaches children “how to learn”, if that makes sense, and to become curious, self-disciplined, and critical thinkers. Montessori children have a say in what they learn each day, which allows them not only freedom of movement, but the freedom to explore what interests them. In any given week, she might work on her reading (yes, she has been reading for over one year), on her math work, or she might study the planets or geography. She also loves all of her extra-curricular classes that she is taking – they offer art, Tae Kwon Do, and ballet, all of which take place at the school – a huge time-saver for me!
The teachers at CSM are fantastic and are all fully Montessori-trained/certified, and have years of teaching experience amongst them. They truly respect every child that walks in their door, and have created such a warm, peaceful community at the school. Every child should be so lucky to be at such a wonderful preschool as CSM! – D.H., parent of 5 year old
We are totally and completely blown away by everyone we have encountered here at CSM. Everyone is so committed to loving and intentionally guiding the children, and it shows in every interaction. Our previous experience wasn’t “bad” per se, but the contrast between what you do here, and what we experienced in the last setting is unbelievable. We knew your philosophy was different, and that is why we are here. But setting an intention and delivering on it day-in and day-out are two different things. We have seen CSM deliver again, and again, and again. I’m a better parent because of things I have seen you all do…it’s an experience and an opportunity that we are grateful for every single day. – A.F., parent of 2 year old
