York Montessori School (YMS) has been a second home for our kids for a number of years. Our son graduated from the YMS program in 2013 and our daughter is in the graduating class this year. It is with mixed emotions that we prepare to graduate from the school as a family. We are thrilled that we chose YMS for the early years of our children’s development but we are sad to be leaving the YMS family.
Without reservation, we would highly recommend YMS. We are confident that we made the right investment for the academic and social development of our children.
YMS has provided so much for our children. It has given them a strong academic foundation in their formative early years. As importantly, it has provided them with a nurturing environment that helped develop their confidence as well as their social and communication skills. There was a never a grumble to get there in the morning and always a smile at pick up in the afternoon.
The teachers and staff at YMS are second to none. They are warm, caring and knowledgeable. They adapt their teaching styles to meet the unique needs of each child and ensure that every child is supported to meet their true potential. They show a genuine interest in the children and their growth.
The director is very open and receptive to feedback and is intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of the school. She takes pride in her school and interest in the children that attend. She knows every child and every family and makes you feel that you are part of the YMS community.
We always felt that we knew what our children were learning and were confident that YMS offers an authentic Montessori education. Prior to enrolling our son at the age of 2, we looked at a variety of schools in the area. We chose YMS because it had all the elements we were looking for in a preschool and most importantly, it had a warm and personal feel. Without reservation, we would highly recommend YMS. We are confident that we made the right investment for the academic and social development of our children.
