Does anyone have any information on the Madison Montessori school here in town?

I can not find a website - wondering if anyone has or knows someone who has went there/sent a child there and if it's a good school. Also, the costs.

My daughter goes there and so far it has been a great daycare. They really spend time teaching your kids instead of just watching them. My daughter is three and she really enjoys it.The price varies depending on if you get any kind of assistance.

Is it strictly a day care or also a school? What age groups does it enroll?

My five year old goes there and we've been very pleased with them so far. And as stated above, they don't just "watch" them, they teach as well.

it all depends on who is caring for your child here... some of the employees are great and some are not..

I took my son there a few years ago and it seems like he was always sick. On top of that he was injured on the playground and no one contacted me. He ended up with 10 stitches in his face. I wouldn't take my dog there. They are not good to the children.

My daughter went there, worst mistake of my life!! She was treated like a dog!! Was bitten at least 8 times and the other child was never sent home. Was sick all them time, filthy when I picked her up, went through at least 15 diapers a day. She was always hysterical when I picked her up and always acted like she was starving. Come to find out they were using her diapers on other children and not feeding her properly. She has completely turned into a different, extremely happy child since changing daycares.
Also, they do not teach what they claim!! They basicly want your money and do not care about taking care of your children. They also do not have cpr certified teachers on staff at all time. You would be better off leaving your child home alone than at this place!!! BEWARE!!!!

I agree with you that place is like boot camp they dont deserve to be open... i used to work there and i quit because of the way they treated the children.

My son went there about 5 years ago and I loved the place until I went to pick him up one day and found him bleeding from a huge gash on his bottom lip. When I asked what happened they said he got hit in the mouth with a toy. No one called me, and my son ended up with 5 stitches in his mouth and still has a huge scar on his face. Stop by unexpected and see if you still like it....I wouldn't take my dogs there. Oh and never pay in cash because the workers stick the money in their pocket and swear you never paid them.

Madison Montessori is not a certified montessori school! They are horrible to the children! I take my daughter to Richmond Montessori school, they are the best!!! Dorothy Ivey has been in business for 21 years! She really cares about the children and they also have live video cameras everywhere so no matter where you are you can always see what your child is doing!!! I love it and i would not take my child anywhere else! She is only 3 and can already read!! She knows her numbers to 100!!!! They are the real deal! They are also the only daycare in Richmond to receive 4 stars from the KY Division of Childcare Providers! I highly recommend them!
