Our daughter started with the toddler program at 2.7 years and has been confidently thriving on academics, arts, music and language skills. She is continuing into the primary program and our son too will soon join the school this September. Thrilled to see the school focusing on the overall development of the child with extreme focus on making them confident and kind hearted leaders.
My daughter is learning to be independent, kind, tencious and curious. Waterfront Montessori helps create life-long learners. It is a true Montessori school, with multi-age classrooms, self-directed learning and time management, and classroom freedom of movement. There are 26 children in her class and three energetic, experienced teachers. It is a diverse yet peaceful, loving environment.
The teachers are wonderful, and although I believe that there are many special teachers in every school, I believe what sets Waterfront teachers apart is their willingness and enthusiasm for unlocking what works for individual children. My son has been given the latitude to learn at an accelerated pace in the areas in which he is interested and advancing quickly but also has been given the help he needs in other areas which he finds more challenging.
Our daughter has been in 5 different Montessori programs over her short life thanks to my chosen profession as an executive nomad. All the schools we've been a part of are different and have different specifics but with common core values. My daughter has been at Waterfront for just under a year and there is no doubt in my mind that Waterfront captures the Montessori spirit in spades.
WFM has exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We feel privileged to be a part of the Waterfront Community and highly recommend it to all families who are looking to raise curious, engaged, resourceful and self motivated children.
Because my children are happy, curious, motivated, thoughtful, interested, confident, respectful, excited to go to school ... it's all about the outcomes and when you talk to my children you would see. We owe a lot to WFM and how they've helped shaped their lives.
The quality of the teachers is first rate. The administration sincerely cares about the learning process and creating great students and people. We have three happy kids at the school and have been proud members of the Waterfront Montessori community for nine years.
