“Compared to other schools/child care providers, Canton Montessori School is the best we’ve seen. CMS provides an environment where the child learns in a very engaging environment, learns to take on responsibility, and respects others (both peers and adults). We’ve seen our toddler experience amazing growth in terms of learning and socialization since attending CMS. The teachers and staff are top professionals and truly care about the children placed under their care.” -Jeff L and Kyrstin K

“There are several reasons we chose to send our boys to Canton Montessori School. Both of my boys have loved being at CMS since day one. The environment is perfectly conducive to their learning. My oldest had trouble leaving me during the first few weeks. During that time, as hard as it was to leave him, I always trusted he would be cared for and treated the same way as I care for and treat him at home. The educators at CMS are attentive, caring, knowledgeable, and work hands-on with the students. The classrooms are full of interactive activities that promote imagination and learning. The students are taught life lessons on respect, accountability, and responsibility.
It’s hard to pick one reason that CMS stands out from other schools, because there are many, but if I had to choose just one, I would say- I trust the staff who are caring for my kids when I’m not there are doing so in the same ways I value at home- fostering accountability, responsibility, learning, and all the while remaining calm and nurturing.” – Marissa and Quinn P

“The pre-primary environment at CMS has been the perfect fit for our family. Our son’s love of learning and exploration has been nurtured, encouraged and expanded. He’s always had a passion for science, but as he moves through the kindergarten enrichment program we’re seeing and hearing him develop an interest in art and language and gain confidence in his reading readiness. One of my favorite things about CMS are the playgrounds and how the children spend so much time outside exploring imaginative play and just being active. The directresses, along with the assistants, have such a confident presence when helping the kids understand and express their feelings in a healthy way. Support of our son’s emotional development was one of the main reasons we selected the Montessori program over a traditional school. After a year of enrollment we can’t imagine a better, more well rounded environment for our son’s education and development than Canton Montessori School.” -Gwen P and Justin G

“There is no greater feeling than being completely confident that your your child is receiving the absolute best care while you are away from them. The directresses have been nothing but caring and compassionate with all 3 of my children , and have gone out of the way to accommodate my toddler daughter who has autism. They have welcomed her therapist into the classroom with open arms, and have been so caring in transitioning her into being separated from me in the mornings. I feel so at ease knowing that the directresses truly care about the students and they are able to give them all so much personal attention.
My older two children who are in lower elementary are so much happier and excited for learning than they were in traditional school. They are so excited about learning new things , and as a parent I am astonished at the programs that are offered and the things they are learning. We are so thankful that our children have the opportunity to learn in such an enriching , comforting environment. CMS is truly teaching children to be confident , caring , productive members of society.” – Megan K

“I cannot fully put into words the ways that Canton Montessori School has positively impacted my children. The teachers, staff, and administration are phenomenal, and they go above and beyond to create a nurturing and supportive environment. Our dinnertime conversations are constantly filled with tidbits about what my children are learning about in their CMS environments, and my husband and I are consistently amazed by the ways they are processing and applying what they learn. My children leave school each day filled with curiosity, wonder, and a genuine love for learning. More than that, they are encouraged to grow as individuals while also developing kindness, compassion, and empathy towards their peers. CMS is such a gift…to children, to families, and to our community!” -Christina and Scott S
