Minden Montessori of Glenbrook School is dedicated to providing a quality education for children aged 3 years (Sept. 30 of the school year entering) to 5 years old. We foster the growth of independent, self-confident children using an interactive learning process based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori.
When the time came to choose a preschool for our daughter, my expectations were very high. As a former evaluator of Early Childhood classrooms, I personally knew what needed to be in place to create a thriving, positive learning environment for students. In my opinion, Minden Montessori is the leading Early Childhood preparatory school in our area. Children who attend Minden Montessori learn the skills needed to be prepared for kindergarten and beyond. Susan sets the bar high for her students, never wavering but always assisting them to reach the goal of life long, successful learners.
Minden Montessori of Glenbrook school has been such a blessing to our family. Both our boys started with Ms. Susan as early as they could and we have been blown away by how much they learn right off the bat. Susan and her staff have high expectations for learning and behavior. We have been pleased to find a place that challenged our boys to be thinkers and leaders while allowing them to flourish as individuals. We have a high level of trust in the staff at Minden Montessori because they have shepherded our sons alongside us and have been honest with us through both fun achievements and difficult times of struggle. Our oldest was well prepared for Kindergarten and a successful academic future. As an educator, I am so impressed with all that the students learn at such a young age to set a firm foundation.
Our three children attended Minden Montessori. Ms. Susan worked with them on an individual basis to make sure they were each prepared to continue their academic journeys at Glenbrook School. As we reflect on our time there, two specific instances come to mind. After enrolling our young daughter and over several months of observation, Ms. Susan saw that she was a perfectionist. Her advice was that she needed some type of extracurricular activity that she loved to form her into a more well-rounded student. We enrolled her in dance, and she continued dancing throughout high school and now college. Ms. Susan’s advice was invaluable to help her succeed not only in academics, but in giving her an outlet that she has greatly benefited from as well. Ms. Susan also helped us form a plan for our youngest son. When we decided to keep him at MMS for an additional year, Ms. Susan was able to give him more challenging work and taught him to read before he went to Kindergarten. We are extremely thankful for our time at MMS. Ms. Susan provided a safe and nurturing learning environment that was instrumental in setting a firm academic foundation for our children that has allowed them to succeed not only in high school but on a collegiate level as well.
We love Minden Montessori of Glenbrook. We have sent all 4 of our boys there. They always leave prepared and ready for school. The teachers work with them individually and in group settings. All of my children have different strengths and learning strategies, and this school has been able to meet them right where they are and give them what they need to learn and succeed. All the teachers are wonderful and very professional. The foundation my boys leave with for school is worth every penny.
All three of our children have attended Minden Montessori, starting at age 3, and all three of their unique personalities and learning styles were accommodated. They were able to grow, learn, and thrive with supportive teachers. By doing both independent and guided lessons they were fully prepared for kindergarten. Our family’s experience at MMS has been nothing but positive and we would highly recommend their program to other parents looking to enhance their preschoolers development.
Minden Montessori has been such an answer to prayers for our daughter. Ms. Susan and her staff are always so welcoming and engaging. I love the emphasis on high academic achievement while still focusing on the children’s emotions and development. We feel truly fortunate to be a part of this program.
