She comes home every day and tells us what she learned that day. She loves all her friends and teachers. We’ve never had an issue with her wanting to go to school. She actually gets sad when the weekend comes knowing she has to wait a couple days before going back on Monday. She has gained so much confidence and independence. We can’t say enough about the school, teachers, and staff. We highly recommend this school.
She had never been away from family and I had no idea what to expect! My mind was blown at how much she liked it and how much she wanted to go back! She loved her teachers from the start! She loved the activities and she loved the playtime she got with her classmates. I love the instant communication and dedication of the teachers! I can honestly say my mind was at ease knowing my daughter was at Richland Academy Montessori School!
I recommend Richland Academy to all of my friends who have children. It has been nothing but a wonderful experience both for me as a parent and for my daughter as a student! We both are looking forward to another great school year!!!
From the first day she stepped foot in her classroom we noticed a difference in her at home. It’s truly amazing all of the new things she had learned and knew how to do. We always look forward to hearing about her day. Attending Richland Academy has made our daughter become very independent and helpful. It speaks volumes that she looks forward to attending and get excited knowing when we’re on our way to school. The staff is so kind and caring. I feel extremely confident leaving my child in their care. We look forward to her little brother attending Richland Academy soon, too!
Our son started just before his first birthday. He bonded well with the staff members, and did not resist going to school when we dropped him off. We loved that he received individual attention when circumstances allowed. When we picked him up, the teacher would often tell us what skills he was practicing that day. The teachers and staff are extremely patient and helpful. They were wonderful as he was transitioning from bottles to solid foods.
We love that we get weekly emails and monthly letters from the teachers explaining what the learning goals are for the week and month. Since he cannot tell us what he does each day, it is helpful to know what words and songs to practice with him.
The facility itself is wonderful and the teachers worked so hard to make the newly renovated classrooms into a wonderful learning environment for our little one.
The program provided them with such a strong foundation, and we were so grateful to know that they were in good hands each and every day. Miss Amber and Miss Jessica–plus all of their wonderful aides–definitely made the classroom an inviting and wonderful place to be. Our sons’ Montessori educations helped with their confidence and independence, among other positive attributes. We highly recommend Richland Academy’s Infant and Toddler Program, as well as Richland Academy as a whole!

Our son started at Richland Academy when he was 3 months old and he is currently 14 months old. It has not only been a caring and peaceful environment for him, but he is progressing by leaps and bounds. We have enjoyed experiencing the new things he learns each week. The staff is extremely helpful, attentive and genuine in their desire to educate and better our son. We have full confidence in their technique and methodology. The school environment is warm and welcoming. We feel safe bringing our son there. The quality of the staff, classrooms, and facility all contribute to an excellent environment for our son to thrive in.
I had experience with Montessori with my two older children in another town, and was anxious to have my son start his education and learn the same way. Richland Academy has exceeded my expectations, allowing my son to excel in a safe and loving environment.
Our son was originally enrolled in another childcare center that was loving and caring, but did not offer the “whole package.” With Richland Academy, not only do you receive the loving and friendly staff, but the solid foundation for your child to flourish to his or her greatest potential. We are so grateful for all that you do, allowing our son to grow and encouraging him everyday. You are all a true blessing.
After a few short weeks, he was counting to 30 and already knows all of his numbers, 0-9. He just turned 3 years old, but the level of education is superior, in my opinion! We are very pleased and thankful to have a great program so close to home
The Montessori program is a positive and encouraging environment and she has acquired so many skills over the past two years.
Our son loves all of the teachers and staff!
