Thomas has just blossomed this past year. He is already farther along with reading, writing and spelling compared to his big sister. He is well prepared for kindergarten in August..

We have also enjoyed the exposure to different cultures and the other Montessori families we’ve been fortunate to know throughout the years.
Many thanks and warmest regards,Brian and Angela Trouette
