Does anyone have reviews or thoughts about Diablo Valley Montessori in Lafayette? Anon
They have very low teacher turnover. Teachers have a great deal of autonomy. I would advise observing at least two, before making any decisions. One teacher in particular was not right for me or my family (lacking warmth). In true Montessori style, preschool/pre-K kids typically remain in the same class, with the same teacher, for their entire preschool experience (2-3 years) so matching them with the right teacher is paramount.
It is not a new school. The campus is basically 4 or 5 adjacent houses that have been converted into a school campus. If you want a shiny beautiful new school, this is not for you. Kids don't seem to care about that. The upside of the converted-house-campus is that they have 4 different play yards and the classes rotate to different yards, which keeps it interesting for the kids. DVMS parent
