Willistown Country Day School is an exceptional school in every way. It truly practices Dr. Montessori s principles. Since enrolling my child one year ago she has profoundly blossomed. From practical life skills to foreign languages to interpersonal relationships to simply following my directions the positive growth in her is truly amazing. And her growth has had a direct affect in creating a happier home for our entire family. One of the best aspects of Willistown is how celebrated every child is as an individual. In addition the academics are well above standard as are the Montessori teaching tools provided to each student. While it is a bustling environment the teachers decades of experience working as a team shines as the organized school day flows and each child gets what he or she personally needs. Children here nap soundly eat well and play vigorously as children do when they are safe and happy. Approachable dedicated and supportive merely skims the surface of the wonderful staff. I truly believe that because of attending Willistown my daughter will have a life-long love of learning a sense of community awareness and a deep seeded self-confidence.

Monterssori sounds great but when its put into practice the results are disappointting. There are other schools that are better. This school just cares about making money even though there are 30 students in a classroom with 1 teacher and 2 assistants there are so many distractions for the children. The children are not exposed to computers in the classroom.But the spanish teacher is good. The carpet is very filthy and the tiny bathrooms are always out of paper towels.If the children get thirsty they need to drink from the bathroom sink. The school uses a microwave oven to heat food all the time. There is no special room for children to take a nap so some students nap while others play in the same room. The playground is old especially the wooden slide. The teachers speak loudly and rough to students. They don t know each child s level and don t challenge the students. I would not recommend it.
