"Montessori Children's House of Hayward is an excellent school. They fully understand the needs of a child and properly address these needs. I also noticed that the children tend to be more academically advanced than other kids from other schools at the same grade level. Students are not confined to a strict curriculum. They are given opportunities to explore other subjects when their regular school work is done. All in all I highly recommend this school to anyone." - Ben V

"I couldn’t have asked for a better elementary school for my children than MCHOH. My sons were so excited to go to school every day, and I loved that they encouraged further exploration of their interests. I knew it was working when my second grader took a tiny notebook out to the backyard to be an “explorer” and record his observations, all on his own. The teachers are incredibly skilled and adept at assessing each child’s strengths and weaknesses and adapting learning plans to suit them. It’s important to me that I trust the adults I leave my children with for the day, and I completely trust them to have my child’s welfare as their first priority." - Colleen Arnold, Ph.D., MFT
