      What Parents are Saying

      From the time you step into the school you can feel the warmth. My son was very happy here 4 years ago and now, so to is my daughter. She asks for her teacher every morning. She is excited to go to school. I love that she has a home away from home.

      Belinda

      Montessori has been a second home for our children. The staff create a safe teaching and playing environment for the kids. The method of teaching is centered around each child individually and we have seen that with both our kids. We as parents are happy with the choice we have made for our children's foundation schooling by choosing Montessori Oak Grove.
