West Mountain Montessori was recommended to us for our first son Joseph and we couldn’t praise our experience any more. He excelled beyond our hopes both socially and academically so we didn’t hesitate to enroll our daughter when she turned 3. And again – her progress throughout the school year was beyond our expectations. Mrs. Ladhani and Miss Zahra run a first class school and we feel lucky to have been a part of their family. It was the best decision we’ve made for our son and daughter’s confidence in academics. Thank you West Mountain Montessori!
It’s every parent’s hope that they find teachers who unleash their child’s full potential. We were lucky enough to find this and much more. Our child flourished in smaller classroom sizes, under the care of teachers who were both compassionate and patient. We had anticipated keeping her at Montessori for only the year that our second child was born. However, the comfort we felt with the caregivers and the progress we saw both in education and on a personal level, could not be matched. She ended up staying for several more years, and thrived under the Montessori principles of respect for the child and self-directed learning. These principles have continued to guide her as she has transitioned into grade school. I am beyond grateful that we found such excellent education for our child during her early formative years.
There was no question of sending our second child to West Mountain Montessori, given the exceptional experience we had there with our oldest. It’s difficult to fully describe what a relief it is to leave your children with people who care for their well-being as much as you do. We very much appreciated that the teachers were always challenging our child in creative ways, and that they fostered his natural curiosity for learning through the Montessori methodologies. The day we had to say goodbye to the school was an emotional one. However, seeing how he has excelled in grade one, has proven that the Montessori learnings have not been left behind. He has been equipped with an education that will enhance his schooling for years to come.
We are truly blessed to have experienced your calm, gentle nature, giving way to a teaching method that we find second to none. Our daughter has flourished under your instruction. She is writing her name, loves numbers, very artistic and more open. We find her overall more excited to learn.
It has been a wonderful year watching our daughter become a student. We are impressed with what a self-confident girl she has become. It is a thrill watching her teach her little sister everything she learned in school…thank you for providing an environment that allows her to be what she wants to be.
I think each of us can remember a special teacher. One who engaged as much as taught. One who shaped and molded us. If we are lucky we have several of these very important educators over the course of our schooling. I know that, for my son, one of them will be Mrs. Ladhani. She and her staff have cultivated a rare environment not just in the superior curriculum they provide but also the fostering of something far more profound; a true love of learning. It isn’t tangible in that it cannot be measured by a test but I see the effects of it in my son every day in his confidence and constant questioning of the world around him. I will forever be grateful to this wonderful school and the positive impact it’s had on my son.
