The virtual tour will be a small group meeting via zoom to take a look at what makes Fishtown Montessori such a wonderful place for children to grow and learn together. We will meet for about an hour to tell you about who we are, our facility, our program, and we’ll answer any questions you may have.
"We love the attention and dedication to the children of the teachers/staff and seeing how much our daughter has developed over the past few months. Without hesitation, we would recommend the school to anyone asking about it." -Mark T.
“My husband and I are so happy we made the choice to send our 5 yr old here. With the pandemic happening she wasn’t able to start school near our home in New Jersey. We decided that it was important that our daughter was still able to have an in person education so we decided to send her to Fishtown Montessori. Their covid policies have helped us feel safe while still allowing our daughter to be around other children.
We couldn’t be happier with how much she has learned and grown. She has become so much more independent. Her reading , writing and math skills have excelled. She has grown and changed so much within this school year.
Our daughter has always begged to stay home and disliked other early learning centers however she loves going to school here. She adores her teachers and has even made a best friend.
Our only sadness is that this will be her last year here because she will be going into first grade next year. I can’t say enough great things about this school and it’s teachers.”
