North Bend Montessori was chosen “Best Preschool” by its fans and parents in the Best of the Valley contest.

Sue Weigel, school director, answered a few questions about her school and what teachers and parents do to ensure their pupils achieve succes.

For folks who don’t know: Just what is Montessori?

“Montessori is a type of education that allows each child to be individually taught at his/her level and gives them the confidence to excel to their highest potential. Learning becomes fun and easy for children!”

What’s the best part of working with kids?

“The best part of working with these children each day is to watch their success and also those great big smiles when they accomplish something.”

What’s the highlight of a day at school?

“The highlight of our day is watching children grow, laugh, build friendships and understand learning is fun.”

What’s the best way that parents can help their young children be successful?

“Giving them the best start in the early years is the best way to make a child successful! Education starts at a very early age and the younger they start, the better! Also, reading to them daily and spending quality time with them is always to their best advantage.”

“It feels great to be chosen as the best Montessori! We have a wonderful staff that is dedicated to giving these students the best education possible! I am very proud of the hard work that they put into our school and community each day.”
