Elke Bogaert: My son Yoktan has been at Lifetime Montessori
since he was 20 months old. He is now almost 6 and it has been the best
experience we could have imagined. Every interaction we have had with teachers
and staff has been wonderful. We have seen our son learn from the older
children when he first started going to school and we are now seeing him guide
the younger children. Having him being a kindergartner at Montessori has given
him confidence and a sense of responsibility. He knows he is being a model for
the younger children and he is always interested in learning more and is eager
to show the younger children. We are excited to witness the Montessori
method all over again with are younger son, Kieran, also enrolled at Lifetime
Sue Mounier, Lifetime Parent I love Lifetime Montessori School. My 3-year-old twins have really matured over the last school year. The teachers are so warm and friendly and truly enjoy working with the children. I always feel confident in knowing I am leaving my children in a safe and stimulating environment. I have gained a lot of insight and good advice from the school sponsored lectures and enjoyed (along with my children) all of the seasonal parties and other activities held throughout the year.
Greg and Laurie Howard, Lifetime Parents Lifetime Montessori has provided our child with the perfect balance of a warm, loving, and nurturing environment and progressive academics. Lifetime Montessori exceeded our hopes and expectations in preparing our child for Kindergarten, not only academically, but also socially and physically. Our son has emerged from Lifetime Montessori as a well balanced, confident, and articulate five-year old who is ready to take on the challenges awaiting him in elementary school.
Bella Litchev, CPA, Lifetime Parent We were so fortunate to have our daughter Alexa attend Lifetime Montessori School in 2008-2009 year. The school is very impressive not just by its great new facility, but mostly by its amazing staff and teachers. They take that extra step to give the kids very special individual attention, loving care and unbelievably successful learning curriculum! We all know that the Montessori system provides great results but this school provides a lot more than that - teaches the children independence, respect for each other, and many very practical life lessons! Kristin, the school director, is a very caring person with great personality that always seeks to give more and more to the kids. The school offers many activities - Spanish, Mandarin, Dance, Gymnastics lessons just to name a few. She really cares about the children, the teachers, and the community. I'd honestly say that this has been the best year for my daughter not just academically but socially as well. She enjoyed every day at Lifetime Montessori, made a lot of friends, learned a lot, felt the loving care of the teachers and we will terribly miss you all! Thank you for this wonderful experience!
Sandra Kinghorn, Realtor & Lifetime Parent Your school is the finest Montessori school that I've seen. In the last 4 months that our daughter has been at Lifetime Montessori, we have seen her become more independent, smarter, and comprehensive. She has been very happy there, and therefore, we're happy. I know that when I drop her off in the morning, that she will be well taken care of by awesome teachers. Your teaching staff has been wonderful and I've enjoyed getting to know them and building a strong rapport with them".

& Lifetime Parent My daughter attended preschool at Lifetime this past year. I can't say enough good things about Lifetime Montessori! The teachers are patient, caring, and genuinely concerned about all of the children's well-being and education. The school principal is very organized and always striving to improve. My daughter attended a different preschool the year prior and our experience there was much less organized and the teaching staff seemed under-qualified. I'm so glad we switched to Lifetime!
Silvia and Ajay Gupta, Lifetime Parents Our son has started at Lifetime Montessori in the Toddler program at 18months old. The warmth and loving guidance of the teachers created an environment for him to foster independence and self-reliance. We saw him bloom into a confident young child very quickly. Comforting to us was also the director, Kristin who was always available to work with me on concerns and/or skills to be used a home. We know that Lifetime Montessori has been an outstanding start to our son’s life education. Thanks for all your dedication!
Randi Hirsch, Marketing Consultant & Lifetime Parent Michael Hirsch, Director of Product Management at Qualcomm & Lifetime Parent Our children have attended Lifetime Montessori for over a year and we could not be happier with this fine school. We strongly believe in the Montessori method and always knew that our children would attend a Montessori program until first grade. But we never thought we would find such an amazing school so close to our home. Having looked at many other Montessori schools, we were extremely impressed with the facility, materials and all of the teachers. From the moment you drive up to the school and walk into the doors, you feel the warmth and experience of the staff and notice the immaculate facility. Just looking at the children in the classrooms, watering the plants, playing together... you can see their proud happy smiles. The Montessori trained teachers at Lifetime Montessori are remarkable. With unconditional patience, kind hearts, and open arms, all of the teachers and assistant teachers provide a safe educational environment allowing both of our children to thrive. The Montessori method is unlike any other preschool program - it is not daycare. At Lifetime Montessori, we have seen our 2-year-old transform into a polite, patient, smart, independent girl. And our 4-year-old is currently learning how to read - not just memorizing letters and words - she is actually learning how to put sounds together to make words and sentences. There are so many other reasons why we love Lifetime Montessori - easy drop-off and pick-up car line, seasonal family events, a variety of after school activities (our girls love the dance and Spanish classes), and parent education nights. We really feel lucky to have found this amazing Montessori school.
Robin Kruth, Lifetime Parent As a single, working mom of a 4 year old daughter, finding a preschool that offered a safe, nurturing, diverse and motivating educational environment was a priority for me. I found that at Lifetime Montessori! My daughter has attended Lifetime Montessori since June of 2008. During this time she has blossomed into a very independent, social, self confident and inquisitive child. She wholeheartedly loves “her school, her teachers and her friends”. She has discovered the “pure joy of learning”. Thank you to Kristin and her fantastic team of educators for instilling a foundation for learning that will carry my daughter forward in her ongoing education. We look forward to our next year at Lifetime Montessori!

, Lifetime ParentsTo Future Lifetime Montessori Parent:
Lifetime Montessori will make a profound, extensive and positive impact in the life of your child and your family.
Our son, the youngest of 4, started in Lifetime Montessori shortly after his second birthday. Prior to that time, he was in a preschool, as were his siblings at different times in different locations.
Up until Lifetime Montessori, we had grown accustom to the typical preschool routine, curriculum and discipline. Lifetime Montessori is heads above anything else we have experienced. From the moment you walk into the office or a classroom, there is an overwhelming feeling of calm, warmth and caring. This environment radiates throughout the day- day after day. The children are all happy and enjoying themselves, engaging in different activities and exercise, often at their pace and direction, but always under the watchful and caring eye of the Lifetime staff.
Our son has some dietary issues, and Lifetime has been tremendously helpful and consistent in their implementation and follow up of our requests. If we ever had a question, we had the emails of his teacher and the director, and also had various phone numbers to contact them. On the off chance that they didn't pick up the phone when we called (how often do people really answer their phones these days?!), they returned voicemails and emails promptly. We were also anxious to potty train our son when he started at Lifetime because he was showing many signs of wanting to do so at home. The staff fully embraced our desire to start training, and did a wonderful job helping us train him. Though he has only completed one year at Lifetime, the skills he has learned are amazing. His fine motor skills/dexterity are simply amazing, as are his verbal skills and manners. I cannot say enough good things about the Montessori methodology and Lifetime Montessori.
Jennifer Miller, Owner of Time 2 Shine & Lifetime ParentThanks to Lifetime Montessori my daughter has made a seamless transition to Kindergarten at our local public school. She has adjusted very well socially and seems to be at the right level of education for her age. The teachers and staff at Lifetime Montessori were more than helpful in preparing her for her future in elementary school and beyond. We are very pleased with the quality of education and closeness we had with our teachers. Thank you for all of your guidance and support!
