We have been extremely impressed with the toddler programme at MJDS. There are a few things in particular that have stood out for us. First off, the teachers are EXCEPTIONAL. They have an obvious passion for both education and the Montessori model. They cater to the individual child (be it a shy one or a highly spirited one) and deeply care about each child’s ability to thrive. The classrooms are bright, meticulously clean and stimulating, yet uncluttered. The programme itself is fun, flexible and exciting for the kids. My son has learned so much this year, but what I appreciated the most was the difference in HOW he plays. He is able to sit and enjoy playing with a toy or doing a task, he can follow complex directions and he has acquired several life skills. Of course, the fact he runs happily into school and is so well received, makes it the right place for us.
