Parent’s Corner

We have been bringing our son here since he was about 5 months old. We absolutely adore Julian’s two main teachers Ms. Daisy and Ms. Lilia. You can tell that they both love what they do and care deeply about the children. Recently Top Hat underwent a change in ownership and it has been for the better. There is clear communication from the owners on an ongoing basis as well as cosmetic changes to the inside of the building. Excited to see what other changes are in store.

We’ve had our daughter at Top Hat for two years now and it’s been great. The infant/toddler teachers are awesome, the new owners (since spring 2020) have improved the facilities and are easy to deal with. Our daughter really enjoys the school and is always excited to see her classmates/teachers.

My 2 daughters have been coming to Top Hat for almost 2 years now. My oldest has been in the primary class and my youngest has been in the toddler class. Laura and staff have been phenomenal at accommodating my children’s needs and we couldn’t be happier about that. Staff helped my oldest become fully potty trained and are working on my youngest, which as all parents know takes a village. My daughter is fully prepared to enter kindergarten this fall and is ahead of the curve in what she is expected to know once she starts. Recently there has been a change in ownership and it is def for the better. They have begun to implement PTA meetings for parents, newsletters and new classroom programs for the kids. More importantly the new owners reached out to parents to hear any complaints and or things we would want to see changed or kept the same, and it’s nice to see the new owners really listen and start to make the changes some parents asked for. Coming from a home daycare setting we were a bit hesitant to put our children into a center setting but again we have had a great experience here at TH and would encourage any other parent to take a tour and check it out.

My daughter Anya is delighted to go to Top Hat Montessori. We started a Top Hat Montessori because they were open for essential workers. Anya is so happy to go every morning and she learns about various countries and cultures. All staff is very friendly and helpful. We are both feeling at home in this very trying time.

My daughter has been going Top Hat for close to two years and has learned so much! We love how diverse the school is and that the teachers expose the kids to different cultures through song, story, food, and more. My daughter loves the Montessori work and individual attention. The teachers are kind and patient. Also, I’m pretty sure the toddler teachers were a big part in helping her get potty-trained! Also, I love the openness and tidiness of the classrooms, the organization of the Montesorri work, and the peacefulness of the school in general.

My daughter has been a part of the Top Hat Montessori for about 4 months and she loves every second of it. The teachers are very generous and very caring when it comes to their students. I would recommend this daycare to anyone, you would not be disappointed with the staff and their teaching

Our son has been at Top Hat Montessori for over 5 years. He’s had wonderfully caring teachers and administrators since he was enrolled. We highly recommend the peaceful environment and thoughtful approach to learning within the structure of the Montessori curriculum. Willing to answer any questions!

If you are looking to give your children a great start to their academic careers, check out Top Hat Montessori! My son started at Top Hat as a 6-month-old in the infant program. He received wonderful care and instruction all the way through the primary class. The teachers are very caring and provide parents with regular progress updates. As a working parent, I especially appreciate the convenient drop-off and pick up times!

Our child has been attending Top Hat Montessori School since about 3 years old. When the shutdown occurred, and because we’re essential personnel for the workplace, Top Hat was quick to find ways to assist us with our childcare needs throughout this ordeal. Top Hat has helped my child to acquire math skills and is also learning to read common words in English as well as the basics of human anatomy among other science-oriented activities. Overall, we highly recommend Top Hat as a great place faithful to the Montessori Method for setting a solid foundation for your child’s development!
