Being first time parents and knowing that our son will be the youngest in the class naturally made us feel a little nervous and apprehensive prior to his enrollment. But our fears were quickly allayed with such kind, friendly, and caring teachers & staff who have created a nurturing environment that it made for a delightfully welcoming place. These wonderful qualities have permeated to the other children in our son's class and some have taken it upon themselves to act like an older sibling to our young child and thus looking out & caring for him. The variety and nature of activities makes this such an exciting place and getting acquainted with the joys of learning and socializing with others benefits their young and growing minds. We have found our son's developmental, social and reasoning skills to have improved in leaps and bounds and this is in no small part to do with the compassionate and proactive nature of play and learning that has been constructed for them which is most conducive to their effective needs.
We are delighted for our son to progress to the next level, Toddler Full Day program, where he will be able to harness and build upon the strong basic skills set & foundation that has been set down for him. We have found all staff members at MSM to be enthusiastic, kind and patient. We are grateful to have found such an ideal setting for our young son who is always excited to attend daily and we unequivocally recommend Montessori School of Manhattan.
