|We have three children who have attended Alexander. Our eldest, Jesse, is now 21 and beginning
her 4th year at the University of Miami Architecture School. Nick is almost 18
and will be a senior at Palmer Trinity, and Ryan is 12 and will begin Palmer a
sixth grader. Though they are each
different and unique individuals, they have all benefited from the educational
offerings at Alexander.|
When we first considered Alexander Montessori, our two-year
old daughter, Jesse, was a very bright but extremely shy little girl. With tremendous ease, Mrs. McGhee slowly
engaged Jesse in a simple play activity, and within ten minutes she was talking
and interacting with our daughter very easily.
We immediately knew that she was someone who truly understood children.
At Alexander Montessori, you will have the opportunity to deeply
connect with families for long periods of time and through multiple children
due to the overlap of ages in the Montessori classrooms. There were children
who were in my daughter’s class to begin with, but after she moved on, the same
children were classmates with my son. We spent the next eighteen years sharing
everything with these families. The connections made at Alexander feel very
strong and very lasting.
I can’t say enough about Montessori educational method. I
feel like it is this amazing secret that the rest of the world needs to know. Children
learn so much more at a faster rate, and they enjoy learning as much as play.
The Montessori way of thinking becomes ingrained in who they are, allowing them
to live successful lives as independent thinkers and self-learners!
