Our son Oliver attended PEI for 3 years. I remember the first day he attended, he had just turned 2, I still carried him around everywhere, he didn’t use a spoon or drink out of a real cup. He was our first one and within weeks at PEI, he learned to become an independent little boy. He could do so many more tasks on his own and got potty-trained in a flash. The Montessori education was the perfect approach for our son. He strived and made great friends over the 3 years he spent there.
We loved that the kids of ages 2 to 5 spend the day together in the same space. The older children learn to take care of the little ones. Oliver is now a great big brother as a result.
I am native French and obviously the French immersion was the prime reason we signed-up Oliver for PEI. It was a great educative complement to the half immersion he received from me at home since his dad only speaks English.
We also enjoyed the community PEI comes with. Playdates, parties, etc. We’ve become good friends with parents and will remain connected.
All-in-all, PEI was the perfect combo of Montessori and French immersion for our little guy.
