Parents share their experience from: Eagan Montessori South


Our kids (4.5 & 2yrs) love Eagan Montessori South. The teachers are loving and kind and the curriculum is amazing. After touring many different daycare centers we decided on EMS and haven’t regretted it. The kids are learning so much here and have a lot of fun every day. My daughter has trouble with drop offs but her teachers are right there to make her feel comfortable. She even asks about them at home. My son loves his teachers too and he’s already writing his name after only 4 weeks. I highly recommend this Montessori!

Eagan Montessori provides a wonderful and enriching environment for children. My daughter started attending at 29 months and has blossomed in the time she has been there. The teachers provide so much care and individual attention. She has a lot of very specific dietary needs and they have been great at working with us and making sure she sticks to her diet. They also do a great job with potty training.

We love Eagan Montessori Academy South and I feel so at ease knowing my daughter is in such good hands while I am at work!

EMAS is a wonderful place with an amazing staff of highly caring and trained teachers! We have three children that attend EMAS and they look forward to going to see "their friends and their teachers." There is nothing more important than finding a child care that not only cares for your child, but truly loves them and provides Montessori. Our children have been in all the different age groups at EMAS, from infant to PK, and we have been really happy. Their facility is bright and happy, the kids go outside (which is huge for us) with safe and fun play equipment, they provide field trips, a monthly calendar with awesome activities, enrichment activities, holiday celebrations, learning units, and so much more. I have to thank the amazing teachers and their dedication. They love my children and give me the peace of mind to be able to go to work and not worry about the care of my children. I would recommend them and have recommended them. We simply love them. You will not be disappointed.

We LOVE Eagan Montessori South! My daughter started going in September in the Pre–K classroom, and she has grown so much! I was worried about sending her to a glorified day care where she would have lunch, play outside, and take a nap. That is not the case AT ALL here! She has learned so much, and is so prepared to enter kindergarten next year. She’s already doing math and reading, and I couldn't be more appreciative of the amazing teachers here! You can tell this is so much more than just a job for them. They love these kids as there own, and are phenomenal!

I am a person that does not do well with change so the decision to switch my toddler to a different school was overwhelmingly scary. That being said she is now into her second month and I could not be happier&33; As a mom it is such an amazing feeling to drop off a child that isn't screaming and trying to chase me out the door. The amazing staff made sure her transition went smoothly and I can tell she is learning so much. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for the best for their child! Thank you Eagan Montessori for all you do!

My daughter started here in the infant room about 2 months ago and we couldn't be happier with the care being provided! The director has been great to work with and the teachers are amazing. You can tell that they truly enjoy what they do and care about the children. They work closely with you for any child specific needs/requests. My daughter is always smiling at drop off and pick up. You can tell that she is learning something new everyday because at home she is constantly "talking" and getting stronger with tummy time. Would highly recommend!
