My son is going into his 2nd year here, and I couldn't ask for a better place for him to learn and grow. It's like a close-knit family where the children's individualism is encouraged and nurtured as well as the opportunity to work together. The teachers always have open communication with the parents and are very easy to talk to about anything.

I have had two children attend Cross of Life Montessori School, and they loved it. I felt they learned a lot and appeared to be ahead of their classmates at their new school. The staff is wonderful and caring!

After having a mix of experiences at his previous preschool, my son has thrived at COLCMS for the past 2 years! He looks forward to learning in the classroom, having fun outdoors, and interacting with his teachers and friends each school day! I have highly recommended this school to several of my friends - for too many reasons to list. Those who have chosen to attend have also been pleased... I am particularly appreciative of the sense of community at this preschool - the director, my son's teachers, and several of the other families have become very important people in our family's life. You must visit in person in order to understand the unique culture and supportive, family-like environment found at this school. I am so grateful to have found this school. I look forward to my future children attending one day as well...

My child attended this school for toddler and primary. The church is a wonderful church with an amazing Pastor. I made wonderful Mom friends and although my child moved on to a new school, I am glad to have known these ladies. I wish them the best!

We joined Cross of Life after being disappointed at the turnover of teachers at our other Montessori School. We love it here and I drop my children off every day knowing they are loved and will never be discouraged from reaching their potential.

COLM is an amazing school with outstanding toddler and primary programs. We enrolled our daughter in the toddler program at 19 months and over the past 10 months we have seen her blossom in more ways then we could have ever imagined. Not only has she become more independent and self directed in her learning and play but she exudes self confidence, is socially adept and has far surpassed many developmental & educational milestones because of the encouragement of her teachers and COLM's program. The teachers & staff are second to none. They are warm, caring, supportive and well educated in the Montessori method - the true method and their door is always open for questions & discussions. I also love that COLM offers educational seminars for the parents on various topics to help us help our children at home. I can't say enough good things about this school - don't miss out on a golden opportunity to help your children build a remarkable educational foundation through COLM that will last them a lifetime.

My child has attended COL Montessori for almost a year now in the toddler program and I can't say enough about how great it is. The teachers are incredible-very knowledgable, caring, supportive, and encouraging. My child has become more self-directed and independent in his play at home, not to mention more confident and social. The school is run by smart people who really care about the quality of the school environment. The classes are generally very small (largest one I've heard of is 12-13 kids). It is located at Cross of Life Lutheran Church's beautiful campus, which provides a great setting for the school. I highly recommend this school.
