My son has grown by leaps and bounds at CMS. They foster his independence and give purpose to his day. CMS is an extension of our family—providing support, celebrating in our victories, and guiding us through the uncertainties of parenthood and making new friends.

My daughter has been attending CMS since she was 3 months old. I was immediately drawn to the teachers in the Infants classroom (specifically Ms. Sherry!) and felt comfortable enough as a first-time parent to leave my infant in the extremely capable hands of the Infant room teachers. We have been equally impressed and satisfied with the care and education our daughter has received in the Toddlers and Pre-Primary classrooms. CMS is a ‘Montessori and more’ style of education, with a huge emphasis on social-emotional skills, daily routines, and life skills. My daughter constantly amazes me at just 2 and a half, with the vocabulary that she has and the skills and emotions she is developing. We are expecting our 2nd child this Spring and are thrilled that we can keep our children at the same Montessori school. I would recommend CMS to any parent who wants their child to have a Montessori approach, as CMS will meet and exceed that expectation.

As new parents, my partner and I were terrified to leave our child with anyone. On a recommendation from a friend, we toured Columbia Montessori School. We immediately felt at ease talking to the wonderful Infant Room teachers. We have now been with CMS for 13 months and we can’t imagine life without it. The care our daughter receives is unparalleled. The teachers at CMS provide a warm, loving environment in all classrooms and give her the room she needs to learn on her own while providing gentle guidance when necessary. In the Toddler Room, she has grown her responsive language skills so quickly which I know is due in large part to the incredible staff. We are so happy to be a part of the CMS family!

It’s hard to pick one thing to highlight about the Montessori programming and influence given to our child through CMS by the exceptional teachers and staff. If pressed I’m always amazed at how communicative and independent our daughter is. As an infant she learned sign language to interact with us and as a toddler her ability to problem solve and work independently is a blessing for any busy parent!
