"Both of my daughters attended Journey's between ages 2 1/2 to 5. My wife and I always felt safe leaving our daughters with Dara and her excellent staff. Our daughters loved attending as well, and regarded Dara and her staff as extended family. Frequent outings to many fun locations made our daughters' experience adventurous and exciting while Journey's curriculum prepared them for kindergarten. Absolutely nothing bad to say about Journey's. Dara was always caring, accommodating, and creative in the way she ran her school. We enjoyed our experience so much at Journey's that we still keep in touch with Dara though both of our daughters are now in elementary school. And our occasional visits to Journeys are something that both our daughters still get excited about."
"Such a Wonderful School!"
"My family loves Journeys! Such a wonderful school!"
"Very Nurturing Atmosphere"
"Journey's Montessori is a fantastic school. The owner, Dara, has created a very nurturing atmosphere in which the kids can learn, play and grown. I loved the Montessori method of teaching for both of my children, they learned independence and sharing. My kids attended both the preschool program and the after school program at the school. This was truly a home away from home for my kids. Also, the staff that Dara hires are wonderful, they are genuinely are invested in all the kids welfare. I was lucky enough to go on various field trips with the kids and teachers, to the pumpkin patch or to visit the retirement community with the kids and always had a blast! Definitely a great experience."
"I Have Always Felt Blessed That We Found Journeys"
"My son started at Journeys Montessori when he was 2 1/2 and just graduated at the age of 5 because he is starting Kindergarten this fall.
I cannot say a negative thing about Dara, the owner, or her staff. They are all loving and caring. My son was taught to practice his manners, be polite and considerate of others. in his 2 1/2 years at Journeys he also learned about the planets, our continents, bugs, math, learning from free play recognizing shapes , letters, colors and so on.
Journeys Montessori has structure but allowed for children to be children. When I dropped my son off I always knew that he was in a safe place. I have always felt blessed that we found Journeys, my son is a remarkable child as it is, but I believe he's even more remarkable and smart because of his experience here. We were very said when it was time to move on."
"Safe and Fun Environment"
"We were sad to leave Journeys because our 5 year old will be attending Kindergarten. This is by far one of the places we know if. Dara is such an amazing person and our girls love her. We always felt that Journeys offered a safe and fun environment and are looking forward to our youngest to attend when she is of age. Keep up the good work Dara and team. We miss you!!
"Nothing Short of Magical"
"Journeys Montessori, or "Dara's House" as my kids call it, has been nothing short of magical for our family for the last 3 years. Every single teacher has been caring, attentive, creative, kind and someone I entirely trust with my children. As of a parent who had previously only been babysat by their grandparents, I toured SEVERAL daycares and preschools and this school was the only one that measured up. Owner Dara is organized, always flexible, always excited to see the kids learn and grow. My older son (now in 3rd grade) has attended with yournger brother for two summers and they continue to ask daily if I can "pick them up later". The school is orderly, calm and rules are followed and I've never seen a teacher out of line or reprimand kids unfairly or unjustly. Parents are always invited to events, kids often get to do activities at the senior center next door, every day is something new and fun. I can't say enough positive things about this place, it's magic.
