“We cannot create observers by saying 'observe', but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses.”
"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world."
The staff at Headon Forest Montessori has a special way of bringing out the best in children. Our son has thrived in this nurturing environment gaining confidence and developing an insatiable passion for learning. With the guidance of the teachers at HFM, our boy has learned the joy of helping others, sharing, and caring for plants. He’s also advanced academically, learning arithmetic, the sounds of the alphabet, printing, science, arts and crafts. Headon Forest Montessori is not only a safe, caring, educational facility, but one where children have fun learning about themselves and the world around them.

We want to thank the staff at Headon Forest Montessori for the love and care they have shown our son. Your guidance and teaching has helped him blossom into such a smart little cookie. He’s going to miss you all.

Our overall experience with Headon Forest Montessori was exceptional. We found the staff very friendly and the curriculum outstanding. With regards to the summer program it was very educational. We feel our son is now well equipped with the skills to start full day school. Thank you for your hard work.

Headon Forest Montessori is a clean, well-managed and engaging environment that provides the tools/necessities required for learning. The teachers are committed to the needs of the children and are genuinely passionate about their role with the kids. We have been very happy with the curriculum, dietary program, health accommodations (our son has an allergy), summer program, learning tools, hours of operation, communication to parents and obvious concern for the children in their care.
We strongly recommend Headon Forest Montessori.
Kara and James- Class of 2014-16
One of the best decisions we have made for our son, was to send him to Headon Forest Montessori. We have watched with amazement as our son's confidence has grown, his independence has greatly increased, and his love for learning has been ignited. The atmosphere at HFM is like no other. The environment that the nurturing staff have created is so peaceful and it's amazing to watch the children work so cooperatively together within it. Our son will be 4 this Fall and knows just about all the sounds the letters make, can cut with scissors, hold a pencil with a proper grip, zip his own coat, and most importantly respect others and his environment--all of which we contribute to his year at HFM. We are so thankful to the staff for helping him to flourish and giving him lots of praise and hugs along the way.

Headon Forest Montessori has provided our children with unique life skills and independence that has fostered a confidence both within our daughters as well as in us as parents. The amazing group of teachers uses a “it takes a village to raise a child” type mentality in their day to day activities that creates a sense of community and belonging that promotes respect, handwork and sharing among the children. The staff's handwork and dedication is seen in evening parenting seminars, specialized holiday concerts, photo communication with parents and the many day to day extra’s.
We can’t even tell you how much we have appreciated the team at HFM . They have been absolutely amazing. There are not many days that our daughters have walked in their respective classes not excited to be there, and as you know, as a parent that means a lot. Knowing that they were happy and loved took all worry away from me and my husband. We can’t thank you enough for taking care of our babies. We are so blessed to have had you all as their teachers.
Becki and Jon- Class of 2015-2016
Thank you doesn't seem enough for all you've done for our son and his journey. Because of you all, he loves to read, write, explore, teach and lead. I have no doubt that we have given him the best start possible. We know that he will think of the entire HFM family fondly.

Great staff - positive, caring and friendly. HFM teachers are very interactive and engaged with the students. My son was always excited to go to school. Great daily routines. It might have been helpful to receive some sort of daily report for the pre-schoolers: sleep time, eating, toileting. But it was always easy to ask teachers at the end of the day. You could ask any teacher, and they would all be able to tell you about your child. An excellent program over all!
