Montessori For All
Montessori for AllWe've seen our daughter flourish in this program over the last 9 months. The first way we noticed this was different from so many other programs was that there's no scheduled nap time. The program director, Hulda, has spent her life dedicated to the craft of developing young minds. This is so clearly her passion, and she's masterful at it. She helped our daughter during a rough transition, allowing us to spend the first week coming early to the classroom to get our child comfortable with the new daycare after we moved. Each caregiver at the school deeply cares for each child. I may not get a lot of communication from the school itself, but I'd rather have someone who's full energy is on the children than someone who's focused on it as a business first. And now that my child is able to communicate what she does during the day I'm even more confident that we made the right choice. We have recommending this school to friends and will have our daughter in the program as long as she's able to be here.
Montessori daycare in park slope, prospect heights or crown heightsI love Montessori for All in Crown Heights. It’s perfect if you’re looking for something part time and flexible. Not so much if you need full time.
Review from the Spring 2022 Early Childhood Education SurveyLocation: 553 Prospect Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11238 Type of facility: Daycare Review: Hulda Haughton is a true visionary deeply rooted in the teachings of Maria Montessori. She respects children and believes they are "the teacher of man". She is extremely gentle and clear with the children and her space is intentional, with beautiful toys & materials to explore. She doesn't use the word NO with the children and is expansive and gracious when it comes to explanation and redirection. The flexible hours are helpful. The downsides to this program are lack of outdoor space, little administrative updating about classroom illnesses and communication around Covid protocols could be improved. Would also love to see a price reduction in tuition when a student takes on more hours. It feels expensive at $25/hr when considering these downsides. That said, our daughter is thrilled to go to MFA each day as are most of the children we see entering the classroom space. Hulda observes many emergent details about our daughter, showing genuine interest in her personality, development, and growth. What amenities does the facility have? Has after-school options What would you change about the program, if anything? Better administrative communication (an email list with all parents could help a lot here). Clearer sense of how children are spending the day (i.e. A Brightwheel app would be great)! Lower hourly rate given lack of outdoor space- or at least a discount as families dedicate more hours to the program. Is there anything you would like to add about how the school is handling the pandemic? Would like better communication around Covid protocols.
