Main Line Montessori School Reviews

Great School!

By a Parent on Jun 27, 2014

My 2 year old daughter comes home telling me that Barack Obama is the President of the United States. She cries at the idea of going to summer camp fearing that she will not return to her Montessori school and repeatedly tells us how much she misses it. Why wouldn’t you send your kids to Main Line Montessori School! Sign up early, there may be a waiting list…


Main Line Montessori — A Wonderful Pre-school

By Jessica Lombardo, a Parent on Apr 28, 2014

My daughter is now in her 2nd year at Main Line Montessori, and I could not be happier with the experience. The teachers are loving and present, responsive to our children’s needs, and show caring and respect for both the children and the parents. My daughter has learned so much, it sometimes astonishes me! She knows about the world around her, the planet, the Solar system. Projects have included making volcanoes, learning songs, writing their own special booklets — for little 4-year-olds, I find this all very impressive! The school teaches my daughter social skills, and when kids get into scuffles or disagreements, and kids will, the fully attentive and caring staff makes sure everything is worked out peacefully, and with valuable lessons learned. I can’t say enough about how fine an education and grounding in social skills my daughter is receiving. I’m so happy with this school!
