The first time our family entered the Bend Montessori classroom, the energy, productivity, and passion for learning were palpable; and there was a deep-rooted peacefulness otherwise unknown to us when confronted with a large group of toddlers. We watched with awe as our oldest son flourished and found his voice in the safety and structured environment. His natural inquisitive spark has been nurtured and grown into a great thirst for learning. Montessori has given him the tools to pursue his interests unabated and with confidence. Simply put: after four years of Bend Montessori, he is unstoppable! Our youngest has also benefited greatly from the experience. As an older child in the classroom, he takes immense ownership and pride in helping the younger students. He absolutely loves school and asks on the weekends if its a school day yet!
