My son has been going here since he was 3.5 months old. He loves his teachers. As a first time mom, I was nervous sending my child to school. They are great with all the kids and he has developed so many skills. They are great!

My little man started attending here since he was 4 months and he's now 11 months. And so far, all I have experienced with the school has been worth it. The teachers are caring, nurturing and attentive to my baby's needs. The classroom is always clean and the environment is so conducive for learning. My baby is learning fast! I want to appreciate the Director Ms V, for always paying attention to details. I highly recommend for your little ones! It's a good Montessori foundation.

There are so many wonderful things I can say about Maplelawn school. Location, staff, enrichment programmes,cost, and most importantly the education and care that my daughter receives is amazing. The staff is truly welcoming and inviting, and when we walk through the doors we feel as though we are in a nurturing and caring environment. They not only educate our children, they shape young minds by showing them practical everyday life skills and how to be more independent as they grow.

I’ve been calling for a almost 2 weeks to ask for pricing. I’m always getting the run around as to what time the lady comes in, she’s gone on break, call back this or that day! It took for me to call another location to get the price. I called back to be sure their price matched the other locations price and she says she doesn’t know. I’ve left my name and number to be called back 3 times. NEVER CALLED BACK. Unprofessional much! Every time I call I hear someone yelling in the background at the kids asking why they’re not sitting down or doing this or that. The yelling isn’t necessary especially when you have a potential client wanting to enroll her 3 month old. So I think I’ll pass on this locations services! Thanks for nothing!

We've been bringing our daughter since she was 4 months old and she's now 3 years old. Before coming here, we've looked at 10 other daycare institutions in Columbia area, but the curriculum, location and professionalism of Maple Lawn Montessori Academy and staff offer made our decision easier to bring our daughter here. Our daughter skillset is very advanced for a 3 year old. She loves learning and continues to excel with any task at home as well. Her development and motor skills amaze us the most as parents. Thank you to the instructors and staff who nurture and take their time to ensure a great foundation to our daughter's development skills and learning experience.
