Here’s what people are saying about Central Kitsap Montessori!

“Over the last two years you have helped H. in more ways than just her academics. With your patience and guidance, she has gone from being timid and shy to being confident and secure. You have set her up to succeed in first grade and well into the future. If my years working in the school district taught me anything it is that truly amazing teachers are hard to come by. I feel so blessed that H.’s first experience in a school was with the best teacher I have had the honor of meeting.” ~ M.F.

“I want to say ‘thank you’ to all of you who have worked with L the past couple of years.  His abilities floor both my husband and I and there have been multiple instances where he has come home and displayed what he has learned – that stun me.  For a 5 year old!  I know that he is more than ready for what lays ahead in his education and future.  I owe that to you as you kept him going and instilled that love of learning in him so early on.  Keep doing what you do as you are all making such a huge impact on these brilliant little minds.  M.P.

“This is a special place from the moment you walk through the door.  Both of my daughters have launched their loves ofl earning and discovery with the passionate, kind and method teachers at the school … and they’ve made lifelong friends in the process.  this is a place you’ll WANT to be … Hurry up!  Circle time is about to begin!!”  G.

“Amazing staff. They are awesome with my daughter! She can’t stop talking about going to school.  My daughter has come home signing songs, books, and teaching my husband and myself things! My husband is military, and just thought she was sent to school, got the socialization and painting. Until she came home and started signing things to him daily and teaching HIM things. (colors, songs, words) we are amazed at 3 years old, she knows all of her continents, and can point them out. And the school year isn’t even over yet!! I am so happy we made the decision to put our daughter in CK Montessori. Anyone we’ve met out and about, thinks she is 4 or 5 years old, she just turned 3. A huge part of that is because of this wonderful school. Even her grandmother has recently visited and said she feels like she is talking to a 5 year old. I just can not say enough amazing things about this school and staff. My husband and I have said that we would go eating ramen and hot dogs if it meant she could still attend this fantastic school. We love it that much.”  J.C.

“Several years ago when my wife and I first considered a Montessori school, I was unclear and unsure of how it differed from traditional schooling.  After attending the Open House, I was convinced this method would be perfect for our children.  My 3 children have had a great time here and have learned so much.  Thank you to all the staff!”  Q.F.

“We started sending our son to CK Montessori when he was 3.  I was unfamiliar with a lot of the Montessori teaching approach but informed myself and thought it may be a good fit for L’s learning style.  I think it was one of the best decisions we have made thus far in his early education years.  my son absolutely enjoyed going to school and really made leaps and bounds with how much he was able to learn though out the school year.  We soon learned that he had a love for math and they really worked with him on his math skills which tool off in the 1st month of being there.  His official ‘number roll’ was off the charts!  (see above picture – ed.)  Fast forward a couple years and he is now 4, just starting Kindergarten next week.  Looking back, I have to owe so much to the teachers and staff for supporting his intellectual and social growth.  I am a firm believer that preschool and Kindergarten are where it starts.  You want your child to love school and I have to say that I feel that L is on his way to great things thanks to the early foundation set by CK Montessori.” M.P.

“The administrator, teachers and assistants are awesome.  They ill do everything to help your child grow, learn and succeed.”  C.S.

“CK Montessori has provided a fabulous educational experience for my son.  The teachers are talented and professional and they provide a very safe and caring environment for the students.  Here, the students are encouraged to follow their own natural curiosity, work both independently and with others, and be a part of a community.  We feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful school in our area.”  S.R.

“My daughter attended CK Montessori during the 2016-2017 school year.  There are no words to describe how grateful A and I are to the wonderful teachers and staff!  It takes a HUGE heart to shape a little person’s mind and let me tell you… every single person at that school has a heart of gold!  They didn’t just teach A, they taught me as well!  You will always stand taller, when you kneel to help a child!”  O.K.

Our little girl officially became a reader this week!  I really like how the Montessori model recognizes that each child is unique and will have different windows for learning specific skills  If you’re looking for a local preschool, I highly recommend our beloved Central Kitsap Montessori.  Last year I saw huge gains in H’s management of her interior world, which was my main concern during the ‘year of the threenager’ and daddy’s deployment.  And this year she continues to blossom into a beautiful, enthusiastic little learner.  We’re so grateful for the caring and qualified staff at CKM.”  B.P.

Mrs. Zegers – you are AMAZING!  So many lives have been touched because of your passion!  M.W.
