My child loves his school and his teachers. As a parent who has had my son at both locations (Clark & Magnolia) I can say I've been pleased with my overall experience. I have to admit I prefer the Clark location for various reasons but it's all a matter of personal preference.
The teachers are mature, loving and attentive. I'm so happy to have found a place I feel completely comfortable with leaving my son at during the day while I'm at work.
Yes, the school doesn't have brand new equipment like some, but I would still consider it safe and fun. I'm not easily persuaded by shiny objects. This school is the real deal when it comes to wonderful preschool education and child care.
Best Preschool hands down – My 4 year old daughter has been attending this Preschool since October of 2010. One of the main reasons my daughter started preschool so late is because my husband and I are way over protective parents you see she is our last child we have a 17 and 21 year old and she is our baby the one we all are overprotective of. My son works for an after school program and always tells me how much more academically advanced the children who attend this preschool are and that they are focused and well adapted children who strive well beyond their classmates. Well it took me about 3 months of long thinking and visiting various different preschools and let me tell you this preschool has been a blessing for my daughter and I. Academically she is blossoming and continues to learn and progress in ways that absolutely shock me. Now don’t get me wrong I still ask her how she is being treated and if the teachers are nice to her and her answer is always “Yes mommy I love my school and I love my teachers” I feel that Media Center Montessori Preschool has and continues to be a great place for my child.
My boy loves it here! – I started my boy here a month or so ago(he is 3 mos old), and he seems to be really happy here. He always has smiles for the staff and other kids. From what I can tell he gets a lot of attention. The staff all seems very nice and friendly and they really like all the children. The kids are smily and engaged when I am there, with the occasional child fussing, as all children do from time to time. I am very pleased with this choice of infant care, and would recommend it to other families.
This is good school, don't put your personal hateness here – there are several infants started this daycare when they were 2 ~ 3 months old as youngest, and now they've been there more than 1 year, kids are happy and clean, as the parents, we are so pleased to have kids been taken care well. there are quite a few families have 2 or 3 children being taken care of this infant center then preschool.
DO NOT TAKE CHILDREN !!!!!!!!!! – PLEASE parents do not send children to this facility. Very dirty, teachers don't speak (unclear/understandable) English, and children look very unhappy.
Director Nevrik is there just for the money!!! She does not care for the children.......she is fake and puts on a act in front of parents.
I felt that my child was not getting enough attention. There are always screaming babies there....all the time!!!!!
THIS IS NOT A MONTESSORI SCHOOL , IT IS A LIE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Pre-school in town! – Very professional, organized, caring, and nurturing environment.
Nevrik Satamian has been a highly credentialed educator with an MA degree in childhood education and psychology for 54 years. She opened her first Pre-School in 1974 and been very successful ever since.
She adopted the highly acclaimed Montessori system because it offered the structured teaching system she was looking for.
As a result, Media Center Montessori Pre-School and Infant Centers boast the best record and the highest teaching standards.
Children graduating the Pre-School routinely pass the entrance test at any kindergarten.
As you can tell, I am not only an informed parent, I am a satisfied one. As a child twenty four years ago, I graduated from Media Center Montessori Pre-School myself.
I have and will always recommend the School to anyone.
THIS IS DEFINITELY A DON'T!!!! – My child actually attended this school and I was not pleased at all. Ditto to the children not looking happy, they never look happy. I would sometimes pick my child up early and the kids would all be sitting at a round table doing absolutely nothing at 4:00pm while the teacher is vacuuming. I paid too much for my child to sit idle considering they had just got up from their daily nap around 2pm. The children always seemed to be sick or have runny noses, the parent/teacher communication was horrible, the teacher to child ratio was a fluke and they could never tell me what happened to my child when she was injured but Nevrik most certainly knew how to remind you that tuition was due. And she does talk to the so-called teachers really bad and the teachers talk to the children really bad and with a bad attempt of english.
I later found out that the teachers were all trying to receive their visa/green cards to become citizens and Nevrik was the enslaved master who assisted them in securing citizenship by giving them jobs for not much pay. I remember one teacher counting down the days before she could depart from this facility and move on to another job. All I can say is that if you love your child, please do not send them to this school, it is a fraud and your child will learn absolutely nothing outside of what you teach them already.
This person has no idea about what he is talking about !He is obviously aracist and a biggot!
Absolute Disaster!!! – Lazy! Dirty! Unorganized!!! Staff does not speak English and are a bunch of old ladies, who can't pick up the kids!! I just toured the Faculities and I will not return again. The Director, Nevrik, is there for the money, she is fake and does not care about the kids! She was also talking down to one of the care givers in front of me. I would never trust Montessori media center with my children. Just the look of the school was bad. It smelled bad and the kids there, did not look happy. PLEASE don't send your children there!
uncomfortable – I did not feel comfortable leaving my daughter there. We only lasted 2 weeks. Some of the staff was friendly, though.
