We loved the precious time we spent with both of our children in the Parent-Infant class. I was very grateful for the advice and companionship when I was a new parent, and my husband liked seeing the beginning of a Montessori education. The second time around was just as much fun because I knew how much babies love the materials in the infant room. They are exactly what each baby needs at that age.
WBMS is an excellent school. Both my of my daughters attended there. My oldest started at 22 months and my other daughter started at 16months. All the staff are very dedicated and truly enjoy what they do. We look forward to sending our third daughter when she is old enough.
I became such a believer in the Montessori education principles and the environment my daughter was being nurtured in that I committed to their all-day Kindergarten, and now their 1st grade elementary program. The true enjoyment and dedication I view from the guides (teachers) and staff at WBMS correlates to the great learning environment my child brings home continuously. Don’t look for a daycare... look for White Bear Montessori School for your pre-K child.
Our children have attended White Bear Montessori for the last 5 years. We feel the Montessori method supports learning in the best ways possible (self-motivated, mixed ages) and teachers are wonderful and engaged. The community of White Bear Montessori has always felt like an extended family to us.
Paying for school was never in our plan, but leaving WBMS before both our two children are through the 6th grade is something we would never consider now.
