My two children attended Montessori Country Day from age one until kindergarten. We wanted a high quality Montessori program that felt inviting and safe and that offered extended hours due to our work schedules. MCD was an absolutely perfect fit.

My kids LOVE going to school and have created some beautiful memories because of their time at MCD. The teachers are nurturing, creative, and communicate well with parents.
Our three sons (1, 3, and 5) are thriving at MCD! We love the caring teachers, who guide the children with respect and kindness.

We also like how the boys are encouraged to be independent and supported when they need a little extra help.
