The absorbent mind is one of the most important ideas in early childhood education. The absorbent mind makes our adult lives possible.
DMS prepared them for the next stages of their education and ensured they had all the skills to do their best in life. Sending our third child to DMS. Our son has noticeably become calmer, more independent, more focused, and he is looking forward to going to school instead of dreading it.
Both our daughters have attended DMS since they were 4 months old. Van T Our 3-year old son, Gaspard, just loves DMS and always talk with enthusiasm of things he learns during the day, of his teachers and of his friends. We are so impressed about his concentration skill and independence.
Our 5 year old has been there for just over 2. He has especially shown remarkable leap in his ability to read and write ahead of his day care friends. Do not hesitate to enroll at DMS. Since she started at DMS, Sadie has been loved, supported and encouraged by her wonderful community here.
She goes to school with confidence and joy, and comes home with questions and light. Rachel B When our son first came to Decatur Montessori, he was 3 years old. He was really nervous about coming to a new school, but the children, teachers and staff welcomed him lovingly. He adjusted quickly to the classroom, because he was always busy and participating in the classroom in a way that made him feel useful and self-confident.
This consistency and stability is essential for the happiness of young children, but it is also important to parents with busy schedules and full lives. Our son—and our entire family—is thriving thanks to the love and support we receive from being part of the DMS family.
Albert P A year has passed that Adriel has graduated and moved on but he still continues to want to go back to Decatur Montessori and meet his beloved teachers and friends. The experience does not stop that day of graduation; Adriel continues to harvest his friendship with peers who graduated before and with him.
Roxana P I wanted to let you know how happy we are to have chosen Decatur Montessori School as a partner to help Lydia grow and learn in these very important formative years.
Lydia simply loves the school and every day we see the benefits of what she is learning and doing. Thank you DMS for the wonderful teachers, staff and keeping environment safe and secure. Christina M When I started looking around for daycare for my son last spring, I visited DMS and immediately fell in love with the place and the people.
I have not regretted the decision to join the DMS community.
Tanja L Lily used to be so quiet and dingy. I tried socializing her at different parks, play dates, the pool and Sunday school. She would always try to hide behind me and would only play while watching other kids tentatively.
Decatur Montessori brought her out of her shell and made her independent. Mary P Our child formed strong bonds with the teachers, Assistants and school director. It was so comforting to know that he spent his days with nurturing individuals who had true interest in his development. The school staff that surrounded him enjoyed watching him grow and develop as much as we did.
DMS really felt like home. Brian K Enrollment Decatur Montessori School accepts applications round the year for Infants, Toddlers as well as Primary communities for spaces available from time to time.

I have a 6 (almost 7) year old son who has had an awful early childhood experience in school. He has been kicked out, told he was as pain in the a$$, annoying, and many other things that have left scars on him. This article and discussion in general is so important.
My view and judgement is unimportant either way. I grew up in a catholic family where we didn’t discuss sex, so my sex education came from peers, my Catholic school and Cosmopolitan Magazines.
