Growing Light Montessori School Ratings & Reviews

We joined the GLMS Oakland family back in 2012. This year both of my sons attend GLMS and we have been very happy with the experience. The teachers are amazing. Every one of them that took care of my children have been very loving, patient. You can see that they are happy to work at GLMS and the kids thrive in this happy, loving and nurturing environment. We like the Montessori education and the school follows it very well. If you visit the classrooms you will see. We also love that afternoon hours provide lots of playtime and other fun activities. Academics wise it is very strong. Curriculum is very rich and kids have impressed me especially in math & language areas. In addition, there are many enrichment activities incl. music, yoga, dance, soccer. My sons have developed so many new skills since they started school. We also love that it is not a huge school with ton of kids. It is easier for little kids (2-4 year olds) to adjust to and manage. The school is very good in administration and communication with the parents as well. We feel comfortable talking with them anytime. And we met so many great families and have been enjoying their friendship too.

When we relocated from Southern California two years ago we knew nothing about which preschools were great or would fit our sons personality. GLMS came highly recommended. We toured and visited about 6 schools and chose GLMS. We were impressed by their modified Montessori curriculum, the location and campus of the school, the beautiful playground, all the tools and materials they use to help engage the children but most importantly the quality of the teachers and staff. Our child is now in his second and last year at GLMS and we will probably be sending our second child(as long as we don't move too far)! The school hosts fun and creative events from a winter welcome concert, halloween parade, art show, field trips, not to mention they have a Spanish immersion program! The only thing I do feel the school is lacking is a balanced diversity, one that truly reflects the faces of Oakland. However culture and uniqueness is encouraged and celebrated which is why we were able to over look that very important issue for our family. If you have not checked out GLMS you are truly missing out on a wonderful school and great staff that will really prepare your child for Kindergarten on.

My kids had a great experience at this school, the teachers in particular are very warm, caring and they love the kids. The kids have a great set up to learn from each other and develop a level of curiosity. They also prepare the kids ready to go to Kindergarten such that there is a level of confidence when they transition to the elementary school. It s has a great well structured administration. Highly recommend.

Wonderful school! Our son started GLMS when he was 2 years old, about 3 months ago and has been doing great there. I'm amazed by how independent he has become i.e always trying to put his own shoes/socks on, tries to dress himself etc. He adapted very quickly to the school and talks about his new friends and teachers incessantly. He is always bringing home new art projects and telling me about all the activities he gets to do- including music time, and soccer shots. The school has a very small and warm feel to it. I already feel like we are part of such a great community.
