Montessori For All
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.
