Big lover of Wilson Montessori Academy - where the kids are choosing from very tactile pieces of learning materials to develop academically as well as to develop practical life skills, artistic outlets, and other fun-for-them topics: geography, solar system, plants/animals. "The hand is the chief teacher of the child" (-Maria Montessori. She thought kids' natural curiosity was developed through letting them explore the world around them, and through the use of tools they themselves can manipulate, I find these kids are pretty self-directed after their time at Wilson. I am sad to see it end for each child, and sadder still for me when the last will have completed his run there. I've sent three children there and the oldest two were reading beautifully by the end of the kindergarten year; one more child still to go. When you go in their for parent visitation, the kids -all of them- are concentrating and so calm. It's a very calming atmosphere and the kids are relaxed and happy to be there. They get to wear slippers and bring in a family portrait, which makes them feel special, and the best are the special projects and events: Halloween parade around the nearby business district, churning butter at Thanksgiving (with send-home for your Thanksgiving table), fruit peeling, vegetable cutting for community soup (also with a take home), Field Day at Pioneer Park, and the consummate mother's day project every year!!

Bethel Learning Center, all 5 of my children have gone here. Children are able to play and learn and be in a warm, nurturing environment. The teachers and staff love the children and are happy to see them each day. Playing and learning to play and socialize is one of the most important things are children need to know. Thank you Bethel!

Elmhurst KinderCare - they have fabulous teachers who really care about the children and they have a well-balanced learn/play curriculum. My 3 kids have learned so much and they love going to school.
