PHMA - highly recommended!
This is an awesome preschool/kindergarten setting. In the last 13 years (1997-2010), I have sent all three of my kids to this school, starting each one when they were about 2-and-a-half years old until they moved on to first grade. The owner, Margaret Robinson, is very conscientious about the cleanliness of the school and well-being of the children. The staff is remarkably attentive in caring for the youngsters and very competent in their teaching skills.
The school has two playgrounds and plenty of educational toys. During the summer, they have a host of activities planned out for the children, such as a bounce-house, bubble day, pajama day, make your own pudding day, including appearances by a magician, puppeteer, petting zoo.
My youngest is now moving on to first grade, and I am very sad to leave what has truly become my "peace of mind each morning as I set off to work" for the last thirteen years. I was originally referred to this school by a co-worker whose child attended the school, and I have in turn referred a number of friends to send their children here -- all who have been pleased with the care provided by Piedmont Hills Montessori.
Thank you, Miss Margaret, for making my children's formative years full of fun, learning, and confidence!
