"This is the best early education money can buy. Our 3 year old daughter is starting pre-k here in a few weeks. This will be her 2nd year here, and we will continue for kindergarten the same way we did with our other daughter who is now starting 4th grade. I can't tell you how much we appreciate the teaching that our kids have received from this Montessori school. My 4th grader is a Gate student and back in Kindergarten had received an Award for Academic Excellence signed by President Bush at the time. And I owe it all to the most amazing teachers there - Carol & Marge! We are already seeing the same Academic growth with our 3 year old. Their price is the most reasonable in town. No matter what you just can't put a price on education when it comes to your kids. But at least here you know you are definitely doing the best thing you can for your child."
"Love this school! A wonderful place where children develop a love to learn."
- Mari Wells Coyle
"Love, love, love this school. Education and love for the kids is the best around. Spent five years there and my boys were over-prepared for kindergarten."
- Kathy Garel
"I feel blessed and fortunate to have found this school. Carol is an amazing teacher who truly loves and respects the students. It's a warm and happy place where the natural curiosity of the children is fostered in a beautiful way. I have seen both my kids become interested in learning because they WANT to - it's fun! I also appreciate the school's flexibility on all matters - I feel like they are there for me. Now that my son is in Kindergarten, I ask Carol for advice on his schooling as well as my daughter's because she is a friend and an expert. I know adults who have gone to this school and families with grown kids who come back to visit over the years. I know we will be one of those families who comes back and will always remember CDM as the place where their schooling began."

"We have been a CDM Family for over 4 years and our children have received a fantastic education. The staff is loving, caring and involved with every aspect of our childrens' education. Thank you for all you do."
"My children received a phenomenal education at CDM. They are so far ahead of their public peers! Thank you, CDM for all your caring and support of our children."
"My son attends Country Day, and I cannot say enough good things about this school. Carol and all of her staff are top notch. We will keep our son in for Kindergarten, too. Putting him here was the best decision I have ever made. It's the best preschool in El Dorado County."
