Isabella has been attending this school for mornings and lunch bunch since August 2018. She has grown tremendously and progressed greatly in just a few short months with Ms. Nima as her guide.
It must have been instinctive that Ms. Nima has known what to introduce to Isabella at just the right time "sensitive period" of development. She knows my daughter academically as well as I do, and I taught her in a home daycare setting for the first four years of her life. When I noticed she was writing her name in all capital letters, shortly after, I recalled her bringing a paper home from school with her practicing writing her name with a capital "I" and lower case to finish. I never once mentioned to Ms. Nima that this was something I had hoped to work with her at home on. She now loves to write her name, and she will write it any chance that she gets! She has also taken an interest in reading, and I feel confident that she will begin to read before the age of 5 yrs old with the guide of Ms. Nima, and her attendance at La Bella Vita Montessori. Isabella will count how many objects when we are shopping at the store. To summarize, she has a renewed love for learning!
This is not just a child care center........it is an exceptional school! There is great focus on following the child, and the teachers are very in tune with what each child's strengths and abilities are. I give this school a 5 plus rating. I highly recommend La Bella Vita to any parent I have the opportunity to interact with!
