Both my wife and I work and since our child is only 5, we needed someone to take care of our child. I heard about Montessori in the newspaper and from a couple of friends who had nothing to say of it but rants and raves. Of course, rants and raves being good things. We enrolled him in the cottage and although it was difficult to leave him on his own for the first time, he came back and was so excited. He could not stop telling us of all the games and things that they had played and learned and could not wait to go back the next day. Our child has been in the Cottage for about a year now, and although he is looking forward to going to school this year, he is sad to be leaving Montessori. This place is a necessity if you have kids and both of you work. Call and enroll. The people and staff are very friendly and will do anything to meet your needs. As I said before, Montessori is extremely useful and saved us from a lot of trouble!
