A Glimpse Into Our Days

We have loved this program from the start! Ms. Aurora and all the teachers helped from the beginning with my child’s separation anxiety and she quickly overcame her fears and now loves going to school. I’ve been amazed at the curriculum and how much she has learned. Our daughter constantly sings about the continents, planets and now dinosaurs....all because of what she’s learned at school. We are looking forward to our next few years at MSM.

We are true believers in the Montessori programs. Aurora is such a wonderful director, teacher, and friend to these children and is so passionate about Montessori. We feel very blessed to be a part of the Montessori School of Marion!
