The BEST, authentic Montessori preschool ever! Each child quietly and independently "works (amazing long span of concentration)" advanced academics & important life skill behaviors/manners! By the time everyone graduates from this school, each child easily reads advanced books, easily counts numbers(some students can count up to 1000), knows about world maps, and shows respecting others. You can expect your child to learn advanced skills intellectually, and to learn well behaved manners. All the parent-participant monthly events/activities are fun, too! The highest quality of Montessori preschool we have ever observed!!! Highly recommended to send your child to this preschool!!!!!

"This Montessori school is so much more than your average preschool, daycare or child care center. You just have to go and see for yourself. The education this school provides is unlike any I have ever seen. Heather brings out the best in every child."

"I can not speak highly enough of The Happy Children's Montessori School. My daughter just finished her third year with Heather. She has grown in so many ways. Heather has shown her that she is capable of doing so much more than she ever thought she could do. She is more than ready for 1st grade in her academics. The small class size and personal attention that the children receive is amazing. This school goes beyond just that, however. Heather instills in the children such a sense of self-confidence and quiet capability that most parents are completely astonished by what their children can accomplish. I taught kindergarten for seven years in the local school district, yet I am dumbfounded by what these Montessori kiddos are able to accomplish. I would strongly encourage any parent to meet with Heather and see for yourself what an amazing place of learning this truly is."

Happy Children's Montessori is a great authentic Montessori school with awesome teachers.

My son in his first year, picked up self help help skills ,explored new skills, learnt to pursue his interests and learnt so much from being around his peers as well. Apart from overall development, there is a lot of emphasis on music and language which we much appreciate.

I love that this school has a big play area (outdoors) and a nice indoor area for kids to be active year round.As the school year ends this week , I would like to thank the teachers Heather and Kaycee for your tremendous efforts towards education , events, field trip , concerts , parent classes and a whole lot more

Both of our children have been blessed with the opportunity to go to this preschool. The program is structured and teaches the children in a way that gives them control over their own learning. The class is always doing something fun and kids look forward to going each day. We are so thankful to send our child to an environment that teaches rules and holds children to a high standard. Thank you Heather and Kaycee

First of all the best Montessori I have ever seen with best teachers. My son learned a lot in very less time. They have special projects like gardening, field day, concert, Mother's Day, Father's Day etc. My son learned how to respect and give space to others. Picked the lesson and finish it. He know French songs/ rhymes as well. He wants to continue his kindergarten journey in this school only with best friends and teachers

We are really happy that we selected Happy Children's Montessori for my son. I am impressed with such a diversified experience kids are being exposed to. Along with Montessori background, I like the way teachers introduce art week, gardening project, all festival events, mainly the concerts and French music. I specially want to thank you for your personal guidance with disciplining my son. And over the course of just few months I have seen a lot of change in him as well as a change in my approach. Thank you for everything. I am glad that my son is part of your school at the beginning his life long journey of learning.

Life changing. The best preschool and kindergarten. Not just academics, but life skills, and social courtesy. (With success!...A place like this actually exists?)

Our children are able to learn so many things at their own pace in a loving and peaceful environment. The teacher is amazing with the children. We wanted our slightly shy, yet jumping and active, always wandering, waiting for something "fun" son to be ready for kindergarten. We were so impressed, we decided to keep him there to do kindergarten! He is much more focused and confident (still jumping and active...but at more appropriate times). Then, we couldn't wait to send our strong personality, ever so independent daughter there to learn ASAP! Now she is much more directed and challenged than directing and challenging. 🙂 The changes in both of them are extraordinary! (Thank you Heather!) They are able to learn so much more than you'd expect in such a short school day. We highly recommend this school. Our lives have changed for the better thanks to Happy Children's Montessori. The Montessori methods are great, of course. But it is the teacher (and her assistants) that makes them Happy Children.

I highly recommend this Montessori school. We have been incredibly happy with the quality of education at this Montessori school. All three of my children have attended, and each one has excelled in all subjects: life skills, mathematics, reading, and fine motor skills. In addition, the teachers keep you very well informed about up coming concerts (three a year) and other events, how your child is performing and progressing, and resources for Love and Logic based parenting.

My wife and I consider ourselves very lucky to have come across Happy Children's Montessori. Its been a blessing to not only have our children attend but has given us, as parents, a valuable experience in being a part of high-performing and demanding school. I came across their location and website with a Google Map search looking for Preschools. The preschool itself makes use of a few rooms of Hillsboro Presbyterian Church. Though its not directly affiliated with the church, the school does share Christian values, by having themes during each month (ex: Respecting others, Self-control, Honesty, Patience, and Kindness). As the title of the school implies, it implements a program based on the work of Maria Montessori. The school also make use of methods based on the book Love & Logic when dealing with issues or areas of conflicts with kids.The kids typically get a lesson on an item of their choosing or something they're encouraged to work on. From there the child works on demonstrating proficiency and is on to their next piece of work. The emphasis is definitely on the child's "work". The kids start a project and can return to it each and everyday until they get it done. They learn how to respect one another, each others' space/work areas, ask for assistance when needed, and how to politely move around. Its not only about work and learning, there's time for play, outdoors in a safe play area, or a large indoor playroom for running around and burning off extra energy. They plant flowers in a garden, have a field day near the end of the year, and hold 2 concerts, 1 before Christmas break and 1 before the end of the school year. They have 1 field trip a year, when they visit a local pumpkin farm or an apple orchard during the fall. We couldn't ask for a more well-rounded preschool and more loving teachers. Heather and Kaycee really are angels to our kids. Guiding them, celebrating their achievements, and making them feel warm and welcome at all times. I will forever be thankful for having come across this school, making the choice to apply/register, and having the opportunity to get our children enrolled. God bless you, and thank you for reading our review.

"I can not speak highly enough of The Happy Children's Montessori School. My daughter just finished her third year with Heather. She has grown in so many ways. Heather has shown her that she is capable of doing so much more than she ever thought she could do. She is more than ready for 1st grade in her academics. The small class size and personal attention that the children receive is amazing. This school goes beyond just that, however. Heather instills in the children such a sense of self-confidence and quiet capability that most parents are completely astonished by what their children can accomplish. I taught kindergarten for seven years in the local school district, yet I am dumbfounded by what these Montessori kiddos are able to accomplish. I would strongly encourage any parent to meet with Heather and see for yourself what an amazing place of learning this truly is."
