My kindergartener is reading at a 3rd grade level! All thanks to you guys! She came home with this and I thought it was a mistake - nope! I can't wait to have Jackson and Elle enrolled! Thank you!!!
Why I love Villa Montessori

Villa Montessori has been a wonderful preschool to have my child in. I wish we had put her in sooner!

The quick review: 10 adjectives I’d use to describe the school:
Educational * Fun * Bright * Happy * Welcoming * Caring * Friendly * Helpful * Clean * Responsive

The full review: My initial observations and experience with the school:

When I first walked into the school for a tour, I was surrounded with lovely low volume classical music playing in the hallway. I came to find out it was music from the composer the children were learning about that month.
The front office wall, the first thing you see upon entering, is nearly all glass. It gives a wonderfully open, welcoming feeling, followed by smiling faces. Continuing down the hallway, each classroom has a glass wall and door which maintains that open feeling.

The opposite wall of the classrooms are also glass giving a view of the outside, so there is constant daylight everywhere. When the sun gets over exuberant, or it is resting time, they have the perfect shades to dim the classroom without the need to switch to overhead lighting only.

Along with the composer of the month, they also have an artist of the month. As you continue down the hall, they have the children’s most recent artwork displayed on the wall. These are usually their personal interpretations of the artwork of the artist they are studying, and it is fun to see each of their individual perceptions.

Everything from the playground equipment to all that glass, is beautifully clean, and very well maintained. It all looks brand new. The children are part of this, learning how to clean, being taught to respect their learning environment and the classroom as a whole, including their teachers and each other.

Moving on to the staff and education:

Wow. Everyday I’m impressed by how happy and welcoming they are – yes, even at the end of the day! Always big genuine smiles and greetings. It is clear that they enjoy what they do – this isn’t just a job or a paycheck to them, as I’ve seen at most preschools.

I’ve observed the patients the teachers have and their ability to pull the children’s attention back to the group without raising their voices or showing frustration.

I’ve been invited to join in on special events and my youngest was very much welcomed in the classroom, even though it was for the older children. He was even given a lesson on one of the activities which he happily enjoyed for most of the event. He was even welcomed into circle time!

My daughter has only been enrolled for 8 months, and I am amazed to see how much she has learned and grown in such a short time. Entering as a 4 year old with no prior group, education or schedule experience, she picked it up right away.

Now she is reading level 1 books at home. She is writing so legibly, holding her pencil correctly and phonetically spelling out sentences very well. SENTENCES! Not just words!

Thanks to Villa Montessori she now has a great head start going into Kindergarten. I know we chose the best school and I am looking forward to enrolling my other children when the time comes.

Without hesitation, I recommend them above all the other preschools I looked into when choosing one for our daughter.
I love this school! I’ll share what I feel is most helpful for parents. I did my share of researching school and found this to be the best choice for our family.

First, the team and director Ms. Kimberly are incredible. Ms. Kimberly’s is not only an experienced leader in the Montessori school system, but ensures the integrity of the Montessori teachings throughout the school. The teachers are loving, kind and nurturing educators. Collectively they create an engaging and wonderful environment.

Secondly, is the experience of our children. My son who is four has grown tremendously, not only socially but also academically. They foster amazing individual learning, meet him where he is at, and offer him many ways of experiencing learning. My daughter who is 3 is excited about school. Her social and outgoing personality is embraced, she’s appropriately challenged and has also shown tremendous interest in learning more. I highly recommend this school to all!!
I hope you don't mind me sharing this wonderful training with you! The Winter Workshop & Retreat is coming up February 10 at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. It's a nature-based training that features presenters/ECE teachers from across the region. Fort-building, wild-crafting, STEM-inquiry, and even friendship soup will all taking place during this engaging training! You'll even get a sneak peak at the Schuylkill Nature Preschool! Certificate provided; pending PQAS approval. Snow date: 2/17. We hope you can join us!
Finding a good daycare is REALLY tough! We interviewed with 5 daycares in the area and were so relieved when we met with the administration at Villa Montessori - they are educated, warm, and responsive. I had a million questions and they answered every last one of them (with a smile). I was certain this school would be more expensive than others in the area, simply because it was SO MUCH better. I was happy to find it was actually cheaper than most and certainly the most value for the money. Most importantly, I know my son is safe and happy for the whole day.

The school itself is wonderful - exceptionally clean, organized, and designed for each age group perfectly. There are no cheap, plastic toys in this school - each "toy" is unique and designed to teach the kids specific skills. I'm still impressed by the types of games and projects he works on - nothing like what you would find in a toy store, yet he thinks he is playing all day!

Our son has been attending this school for over a year now and absolutely loves it! He is learning concepts well beyond his age, and is learning valuable behavioral and social skills. He adores his teachers, and looks forward to school every single day.

Highly recommend reaching out to schedule a tour!
