Montessori of Alameda
Several parents have floated to our site looking for info on Montessori of Alameda. Does anyone have thoughts about the school? Please share! Programs range from infant-age through 3rd grade. I understand there is even a bus pick-up/drop-off program, as well as summer camps.
Here's perspective from Shannon, whose son was enrolled in the infant program for three months before she decided to stay home:
It's a wonderful school and I really, really, really like the teachers. The biggest thing that I noticed that was different about the infant/toddler community (vs. other 'daycares') - is that they have real grass to play in; and everything was so much cleaner than others that I had visited. If you're thinking of going the private school route (instead of the public school system), it's really nice that the Montessori goes through the third grade. I also noticed that the older toddlers had some really fun & varied learning activities. They also learn manners - yah! If you want to 'tour' - I think all you have to do is call & make an appointment. (Call Maya, the infant / toddler director -- 503-335-3321 )
They're located on NE 42nd & Going - where the old Wells Fargo bank used to be. When my son is pre-school aged - we'll be going back to the Montessori!
