    "My daughter is thriving at Fountainhead Montessori in Dublin. A year ago we took her out of a program that had the Montessori name, but she dreaded being there and upon leaving, they wrote us and stated she showed such a lack of interest in learning that they believed she had a developmental disability (something they never mentioned before we pulled her from the school!). However, the staff at Fountainhead quickly had her so engaged that she has never been anything less than enthused to go to school. Now, she is beyond CA Kindergarden requirements and won't be eligable to enroll for another 6 mo. She has also grown so much and gained such a strong sense of respect, responsability, and herself that our only dissapointment is knowing she can only be there another year. The staff is friendly, helpful, highly skilled in the Montessori methodology, and so respectful of this time in a child's life...they have all been wonderful role models and treated her with such care as her guides and leaders that she simply adores them. I cannot think of a better place for a child than this school."

    "My 4 year old son has been here for 1 years. Dublin campus: low teacher turnover; secure grounds; welcoming environment; wonderful school! What my child has learned: the alphabet, he can read, can write his letters and numbers, can count to 100, can speak about the human body, the earth, the continents, he can sing and count in Spanish, etc. My son regularly comes home with items he worked on that day or the recent previous days. If a parent is expecting a school and/or teachers to be the only facilitator of their child s education and learning then there is where the huge problem lies...not in the fact the school has not taught a child the ABCs or 123s (aka ill prepared for the next level). If a parent does not feel their child is learning the basics wouldn't that be an issue to discuss with the teacher and work in tandem with him/her on a particular concern? I feel, as a parent, it is my job to ready my son for school. We work on his numbers, letters, reading and writing so when he enters the classroom he can harness and refine his skills thru classwork and playtime. No parent involvement required but volunteering is welcomed. No principal or parent involvement review."

    "The real critical problem that Fountainhead Montessori constantly faces in staff turnover. My child was at the Danville location and in the 9 months he was there, most of the staff resigned. My child never had a chance to form a relationship. I spoke with the executive director, Shandy Cole Zimmerman about this problem. She listened to my concerns but offered no response or solution except if I was not happy, then you could go elsewhere. I feel sorry for the other students who remain due to their low price. I guess you get what your pay for. You pay little and you get little."

    "My son literally runs into this school each day. I never thought I would see him so excited to go to school. He is 2 and I am so pleased that he loves school so much. He has been home with me since he was born and I was really worried about him going to school part time. He fussed in the beginning but I figure that is normal since it was a new routine. But after a week or so he was used to their routines and has learned so much. He has only been there since Jan but he is so happy and genuinely cared for. I feel like his teacher is part of the family. I am not sure about other folks but they prorated tuition, answered all my questions, etc. In general they have been very responsive to me being a nervous mom!"

    "My daughter started at Fountainhead last Fall and we couldn't be happier. It is true they do not require much parent involvement but you can volunteer if you want. I am very busy so I like not having to volunteer and since she is only there 3 hours a day I get time with her in the afternoons. My daughter loves going to class each day and I am amazed at what she has learned since August."
