From Our Families
With Eva in grade school now, we’re really seeing the breadth of the positive impact that her COS Montessori education has had on both her learning and her personhood. Her Kindergarten year at COS was the keystone. It’s a culmination of everything she had been building on in her first two years in Children’s house: independence, a sense of purpose and community, strong, tangible foundations in math and literacy, and of course, kindness. The kindergarten year at COS gives children the opportunity for everything they’ve experienced previously to come to full focus. It’s well worth the investment.
We chose Children’s Own School as our preschool because of their accredited Kindergarten program. In addition to academic readiness, our child has developed confidence and independence ahead of entering first grade.
If I could go to Children’s Own, I would. It is a truly magical place – the warm and patient teachers, the staff that follows up with you after every question, the beautiful building and multiple natural playgrounds. The feeling of genuine care they have for every child is palpable. I wasn’t sure how my little “orchid” child was going to do in preschool, but at Children’s Own, I have seen him blossom.
Children’s Own School has been a special part of both of my sons’ growth. Biggest wins for our family have been successfully building critical confidence, providing an environment of kindness and compassion, respectful friendships, and a home away from home my boys run into every morning with true excitement.
Children’s Own School is a place where my kids and I found a second home, lifelong friends, and a Montessori education that they will hold in their hearts and minds for the rest of their lives. Respect for oneself, respect for others, respect for your environment is the one of the many lessons we will forever cherish.
We always wanted our child to grow up by knowing the essence of living. COS’s Montessori curriculum has not only helped develop skills, but also has made our child more independent. We are very happy to know that she is getting to learn so much and also enjoys doing the work that is given to her. Kudos to the teachers at COS!
