The curriculum at Wedgewood Montessori is excellent, however, if you are not a stay at home parent, your child will not do well and you, as a parent, be not be accepted by the staff. As a philosophy, Montessori requires a three hour period of school daily. If your schedule does not allow for this, and frankly, whose does, you will not be happy with this school.
While the curriculum is excellent, the communication with parents is exceptionally poor. There is no feedback provided about your child??s progress and even direct questions to the staff are met with vague responses that don??t begin to answer your question. One gets the question that the staff feels no obligation or interest in keeping the parents informed. Scheduling of extracurricular events is given with very little notice and the parents are expected to chaperone without exception as the school is closed those days. If you have even a slightly demanding and inflexible job, it will be impossible to schedule attendance at these events with so little notice.
While we??re on the subject of Wedgewood Montessori, if you are not a stay at home parent, you should realize that the facility is closed for five weeks per year with absolutely no reduction in fees during these periods. Unless you have some kind of European vacation schedule, you will need to make additional and costly arrangements to make up for these extended closures.
If you work outside of the home, Wedgewood Montessori should be avoided.
