CTM is amazing
“We can see a big difference in social skills, ability to process verbal commands, and his willingness to help and take responsibility to put things where they belong compared to other children that go to traditional daycare/in-home care.
“We highly recommend observing children in the Montessori environment at CTMS. It’s amazing to see what your child is capable of, and how all ages and personalities can thrive in this environment.”
– Kelly, parent
Children’s eyes are proof of a great school
“Every time I go to Charles Towne Montessori, I see my daughter’s eyes gleaming from enjoying learning. You can see it in the eyes of every child who attends. Because of that alone, you know the teachers, staff and whole school is doing something very, very right for these exceptional children.”
– Andy Brack, parent, past board chair, Charleston
Building a lifelong love of learning
“Having pushed our oldest daughter through the traditional school system, it’s important to me that my younger children have a different experience. I want them to enjoy learning, look forward to a challenge and take satisfaction in completing projects without being told what to do to get the job done. They are building a foundation for all of these things, and a lifelong love of learning, at Charles Towne Montessori.”
– Hilary Wilgus, Charleston
More words from our parents:
Our child comes home from school every day with a smile on his face. He has become more confident and independent, and we can tell he really loves the learning environment at CTM.
My daughter’s self confidence and public speaking skills have expanded greatly in the school via the many opportunities in Drama and presentations. Also, she is performing at a higher reading, writing, and math level than a traditional school for her age. Her natural curiosity is nurtured and encouraged.
Our child’s conversation and vocabulary skills are off the chart! Parents around the community are consistently blown away by how she engages them in conversation. Also we take her to Hominy Grill, High Cotton etc.. around town and she can sit peacefully and enjoy her meal while a lot of kids her age wouldn’t be able to handle it.
My child has a fundamental understanding of math that I have never had. He has held and touched and counted 100’s of beads, folded them into squares and cubes, and so has no trouble grasping the concept of squaring and cubing. As a FIRST grader.
The quietness and independence in which she works; the calmness of the staff when they deal with the children is amazing to witness. The serene environment envelops you when you step foot on campus.
