My child has been enrolled at Adventure Montessori since it opened in August 2011 and we have been so pleased with the quality of care and education provided for him during the last year. Upon first touring the school, I was immediately impressed by the beauty of the building and the clean and spacious infant environment, but I have since learned that there are many more ways that this school sets itself apart from a day care center. The infant teachers seem to truly enjoy caring for the children and are always looking for ways to enhance the learning environment for them. When you walk into the classroom you see the teachers are often on the floor working directly with the babies and engaging them in activities. My child's hours spent at school are full of exploration and learning, which has made me a big supporter of the Montessori philosophy. He loves to do art projects, read stories with his teachers, visit the school's gardens and their farm animals, and eat at the table with his utensils and cup of milk like a big boy! As parents, we love seeing him happy and thriving in this environment as he becomes an independent toddler. We are sad to leave his classroom and teachers as he makes the transition to the toddler program, but feel fortunate for the wonderful year he has had there and look forward to watching him continue to grow and develop in this great Montessori school.
DON'T BELIVE EVERYTHING YOU READ. I noticed some other peoples comments are very incorrect! These owners have not had any failed schools. They had one other and decided to sell it to Hope. Their current school in Lafayette is absolutley wonderful. My two boys have attended their schools since they were babies and I love what this school represents. My boys love their teachers and the current staff has been nothing but supportive. My experiance with the owner and admin staff have been great as well. it is clear to me that they really love the children and take the time to get to know EVERY family there. I am a Montessori trained teacher so I know what an apprpriate environment is supposed to look like. I am really impressed with the class rooms and the training/education their teachers have. This school balances being state-of-the-art modern with a natural peaceful environment Montesorri schools should have. Love this school so much I drive 30 min. both ways to get my kids there !
This school is amazing I would highly recommend the school to any parent. The atmosphere is so peaceful, the staff very loving and professional. This is the school that any parent would feel their children are well taken care of with the highest of learning opportunities and love given to each individual child.
This school has been amazing for my two children. They are learning two languages, enjoying the classroom materials and Petals the pig is a highlight.
Do not send your child here. I had a horrible experience at AML. My son has special needs and he was given no support. The director was talking to me about him and said "I don't THINK he's retarded." there has been a huge amount of staff turnover something like 12 out of a staff of 26. These directors have opened three centers and they all have failed so maybe it's time to stop. The only thing that I can say is good are the staff. They work hard with little to no support and they truly love the kids.
Adventure Montessori is excellent! We love how involved our children are with nature and especially the animals that are on site. Our whole family loves to search out "Petals", the school pig at the end of each school day (as time permits!) This is truly what Montessori education was meant to be!
Excellent. New to the school, but our experience has been great and we appreicate the education they offer to our son. Most days I have trouble getting him to leave the fun playground.
Excellent School!. I could not be happier with this newly opened location! The staff have been wonderful. I enjoy seeing the same faces every day. My son is always delighted to go to school. The classroom is beautiful and I love Petals the piglet! She is very clean and friendly with the children. My son has never had better experiences in his academics and has just been accepted to a private elementary school due to his high academic levels. They have always been very responsive to our needs. Great school, go check it out for yourself!
Awful Montessori. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! As an education professional, and a parent who visited numerous childcare centers, I am shocked at how unprofessional, disorganized and flippant the staff members were. Not only did they take our money to reserve a spot (and then not have one available - and, no refund), but they deflected my question re: questionable security with "we've never had a child stolen before." Nice. They emailed an invitation to a back-to-school-night and when we arrived, we let ourselves in (door not locked) and there was nothing organized; the director walked past us 3 times - guess they have no problem with strangers roaming their halls. Several other bad encounters - no one answering phone, no one manning the front desk (as advertised) and rumors of frequent teacher turnover and problems with staff. HIGHLY discourage anyone from sending their children here.
You are welcome to come in and talk with us concerning your experience. We have had no turnover of teachers and our staff is very dedicated to the children here at our school.
Satisfied. My two boys have attended Adventure Montessori for two years and have gained an amazing LOVE for Learning, Thanks to all the wonderful teachers and staff.
