My child isn't learning. Montessori isn't Montessori if the teachers aren't Montessori trained. Having all the materials are great, but what's the point if the teachers aren't trained on how to use the materials. How can my child learn in a Montessori environment like that? Sadly disappointed and the public test scores reflects half of their students aren't at grade level. How disappointing to have so much money go to a wonderful ideology of a curriculum but they can't execute the fact that students aren't actually learning? Test scores don't lie people, such a waste. It would be great if your child is 3-4 and do not want to pay or can't afford a daycare. That would be the only good thing I have to say. I will not allow my child to fail. Smh.
