We cannot say enough good things about Growing Minds Montessori. The director, Lorena, is an extremely loving, gifted teacher, and is dedicated to early Montessori education in Spanish with 20+ years of experience. Our daughter adores Lorena, and we are constantly amazed at the level of social and intellectual teaching that Lorena does. The kids speak Spanish all day, along with thoughtful Montessori structure and activities. We feel very lucky to know Lorena and to see our daughter thriving under her care.

Growing Minds Montessori is a gem of a preschool located in the Laurel. Both of our kids have attended this preschool (now age 3 and 5) and have thrived in this loving, rich environment. The director, Lorena, worked with us to deliver on the social-emotional and educational needs of each of our kids. The school is brightly colored and features a host of great engaging toys, lessons, and play structures that have kept our kids happy and healthy over the last 3 years. Moreover, our kids are now fluent in Spanish, a language neither of us parents speak. I can't recommend Growing Minds enough. If you want it all, please consider this preschool for your child. 

We have been with Lorena for almost four full years, and it has been a positive experience. Our son had the opportunity to meet Lorena before we agreed to the placement and he was immediately at ease with her sweet demeanor, as well as intrigued by the array of toys and educational activities. As a parent and an educator, I've always been pleased with the balance of educational foundation she provides in conjunction with how much time the kids get to play. Lorena has been a great provider for our son, and know he'll continue to thrive as he transitions to elementary school, in great part because of the love and support that she gives the children she cares for.
