My child went to Lakeside Montessori - Sammamish for two full years and it has been a wonderful experience for him. My child has thrived at Lakeside and has grown into a smart, self-sufficient, kind, thoughtful little boy. The environment is more structured than say a regular day care, but this is one of the things I like best about this school. There are times to play and times to be focused and most children seem to succeed best when there is some structure to their day. The teachers are amazing-kind, generous, smart, and professional. Lots of one on one attention and small class sizes. Overall, choosing Lakdeside for my sons care has been one of the best parenting choices I could have made for my child.
