Thank you both for all your support these past years. Both of my children treasure their Hands-On School memories. We’re sad to have to move on, but will keep in touch. Thank you for everything.

Julie & Mark Atwood, Happy Parent

We love Hands-On Montessori! I have two children currently enrolled, and this is our third year here at HOMS. From the moment we first walked into the school, we knew that this was a very special place. The teachers and staff are all highly experienced and fantastic communicators. They truly care for each and every child, and feel like extended members of our family. I love the individual attention this school is able to provide, and I have watched my children grow beyond just early academics. In this montessori environment, my children have grown in their social skills and confidence as well. As a parent, I am also very comforted to know that every child here is treated with the love and respect, and taught to be kind and gentle to others in return. I highly recommend this school! ?

To Everyone at Hands-On Montessori,
I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful experience my kids had at your school. The last six years have just flown by. Because of HOMS my kids all love going to school and continue to do well. They made great friends and learned so much. I wish I had 3 more kids to send to HOMS.
