The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life.
This school has been one of the best decision made for my son. He has grown leaps and bounds in the last few months. The school director- Ms. Aurora has a very well structured Montessori program. My son loves going to school. All the activities here are targeted for helping kids learn their social and emotional skills, to be kind and respectful human beings. Couldn’t say enough wonderful things about this school only sad that we had to leave due to our move in a different state and my son surely misses this place and the people. Ms. Aurora was very helpful in our transition and finding an appropriate school where we have moved.
Just want to take a second to rave about the Montessori School of Marion and the wonderful people that make it such a magical place for our children. My son began his Montessori learning experience here in August. Even in just a few weeks, I noticed a difference in this child. He keeps his room clean, helps fold his clothes, makes his bed, and is becoming more mindful and respectful of the world around him. He has been blessed with the most wonderful teachers in the world. Thank you for all you do!
