My daughter really loves her care providers at Eden Prairie Montessori Center. She started there at 12 weeks old and is very comfortable and happy. I can tell that all the teachers and assistants really love the kids and do their best for them. They do lots of cute art projects even as wee ones -- which provides good sensory experiences for them. They do really sweet celebrations for Mother's Day, Father's Day and the kids' birthdays. I do wish I saw more Montessori style in action -- the infant room does have a few of the elements, such as the pull up bar and the mirror, but none of the mobiles. They did recently get some of the toys. I'm hoping to see more Montessori focus and style when she moves to the toddler room. That being said, they do have a nice variety of toys and promote learning through play in a very natural way. They take the children outside as weather permits, which we really appreciate. My husband and I love the app that enables us to see how our daughter is doing throughout the day.
