We chose Castle Island because we were looking for an environment where our child could learn at her own pace, that was safe, and could flourish. Since we had only limited knowledge about the Montessori philosophy of learning, and our child thrived beyond our expectations.
The bilingual component offered by Castle Island was an added benefit that we thought would enhance her educational foundation. The mixed age group learning model is great!
At the end of the day, the Castle Island family has helped shaped our child into a curious, energetic, well-spoken, well-mannered, self-sufficient kindergartener who gets along well with her peers, and folks of any age. She has a passion for art and loves to travel. We think Castle Island has played an integral part in her intellectual and emotional growth over the past two years."
