Does anyone know if there is a really good Montessori pre-school or elementary school in/near Ashburn? If so, please let me know the name and if you have any more information on it- location, website, etc.

Thank you kindly for your time!

There is an excellent one in Sterling on Church Road, the Montessori Children's House of Loudoun. Two of my granchildren went there and my daughter is very pleased with their education. Both are excellent readers. If you live in the eastern part of Ashburn it will be closer to you than the Broadlands or the other ones in western Ashburn.

The only place I would recommend in Ashburn is Belmont Green. I have great experience with both the Boyd School and Willow. I would never send my child to either one nor would I recommend them to anyone. I feel both school do not allow their directresses to teach the Montessori curriculum in any meaningful way.

any more suggestions among these (willow or belmont greene) montessori schools is greately appreciated. I am looking for my 4 yr old to start pre school now, as she is having health problems. I am planning to decide one school by the end of this week.
I went to both schools for the tours. Both are impressive. for willow, now the administration has changed. So any comments, please.
Thanks in advance.

There is a new school where Willow used to be and it is fantastic. It is called Ha'penny Montessori School and the owned is originally from Ireland and has over 16 years expenience in Montessori. They also are the only school I know who offer part time programs and they are having an open house on December 5th and 8th. You should check them out. I have tried other Montessori schools in the area and none compare. They also have spanish 4 times a week and Zumba dance. Here is their web site Ha'penny Montessori School - good luck

If it's not too late, I highly recommend Arris Montessori. Arris Montessori. It's run by wonderful people who are dedicated to the montessori philosophy.

Default Montessori Schools in Ashburn

Arris Montessori is a new school, but they have demonstrated that they care about each individual child and their needs. My daughter started at Montessori at Belmont greens, then went to the Boyd School and finally Arris Montessori Academy. Of the three, Arris did more to develop her academically and socially.

I have nothing bad to say about MAB and it is a very good school, but I would never send my children to any of the Boyd schools. Even after my child stopped attending them, I have continually heard of problems with teachers, classes, administration and whole sections of parents leaving the school. I strongly regret sending my daughter there.
