I started to take my kid there in March 2015 and he went to this school full time until October, he was going to school and he was happy. He was 21 months when he started. In October, I picked him up one day and he told me mommy no school and he was sad. So I asked him what happened, he would't say. Next morning I took him again to school thinking he just had a bad day and in the morning he said no school, started to fight to not go. I took him anyway and talked to the owner asked her if something happened, she said one assistant put him in time-out. I told them I don;t agree with time out and they said this only happened once and they do not put kids in time out and they work with positive reinforcement. My kid didn't wanted to go to school anymore since that day, he would fight in the mornings, cry, so after a week I took him out. I kept my kid at home for few weeks because I said it is flu season , it is better for him to be at home. After few weeks I tried again to ask him if he wants to go to school and he told me he doesn't want to go, I said ok, you will not go, can you tell me why? He finally said why: he said they are pulling his ears. This was a shock and I said maybe he is making it up ! But how he would know about this punishment method ? We never spank him, never did anything to his ears, we were always very careful cleaning his ears because he had multiple ear infections since he was 8 months. I asked him who pulled his ears and he named his teacher.

Really i am having peaceful mind after joining my child to this school.Every one in this school so kind. My child loves to be there. Previously he was going to a famous early developement school. he used to cry while dropping and pickingup . Here he feels so comfortable. Here he learns to be social , to be independent,sharing the toys with other kids . His vocabulary also improved .i can see lot of improvement after joining here. They are working excellently for potty training. I can say in one word it is GEM of schools. i am happy that i have taken a good decision .

Small, unpretentious, family-oriented Montessori-method school. It is still large & diverse enough that my child gets to socialize with people of varied backgrounds and cultures. There's fun social events like what would be expected at a standard school. There are school uniforms (though not during the summer enrichment). My child isn't quite speaking yet, but she demonstrates her new learned skills everyday. Great value. I'm doing the half-day program and when it comes down to it, for about $30 a day: my child is fed, is socializing with well behaved nice children, is learning something new & reinforcing what she already has learned in a relaxed yet disciplined environment. My toddler shows me new learned skills all the time, and is so much more confident and outgoing with people now. Overall, I'm very happy with my decision to enroll my 2yo into this school -- and I'm worry free everyday while she's there. My daughter is not an invoice number on a paper; she has a name and everyone knows it and she is in an environment that respects her individual development journey. It was very important to me that she spend time someplace where she hears many more YESs and much fewer NOs.

My son has been attending MSOW for two years. We have been so pleased with his instruction and with the nurturing care he has received. The school is small, family-oriented, truly adheres to Montessori philosophy, and is diverse. We get a great deal of value for the tuition cost - I have not found another school that has such low costs for such excellent care. It is truly a hidden gem in the east Cobb area!

My son was in an at home day care until he was 18 months old, so MSOW was our first experience with a school environment. He is always clean and dry when I pick him up, he goes every day without any tears when I leave him. He really seems to be learning a lot.
