“We came to Steamboat Montessori from a traditional school environment, where our 1st grader was struggling with being the youngest in his classroom. While he was academically doing great, he wasn’t able to meet the social-emotional expectations of his grade. His school didn’t do anything to help him develop those critical skills; it was very frustrating for all of us. We wanted an educational environment that could help him develop in all areas, not just academics.
The mixed-aged classroom at Steamboat Montessori really appealed to us. Once we made the switch, I was quickly sold on the Montessori approach to education. Our son has absolutely thrived. We are in our 3rd year at Steamboat Montessori, and could not be happier.”
