"The Teachers are Phenomenal"
"Miss Justina and all of the teachers at Guiding Light Montessori are phenomenal. We came to GLM (and the Montessori approach) by accident and I am filled with gratitude for that turn-of-events. My son began at GLM when he was 2 1/2. It has brought such peace and joy to watch him grow and evolve into a caring, thoughtful, and confident 5 year old. GLM hits a perfect balance of social, emotional, and academic focus. My five year-old son cares about others' feelings, can talk about self-regulation, and is excited for learning. I'm amazed! Justina loves the children as if they were her own; she sets expectations and challenges them to be good citizens -- which they eagerly accept. Beyond that, she also fosters an amazing community amongst the families. I'm so glad we stumbled across GLM and Justina and I look forward to enrolling my youngest child."

"My son is a student at Guiding Light Montessori and loves it! He can not wait to get there and see Miss Justina. She is amazing with my son and the things she plans and teaches him. Whenever I pick him up he can't wait to tell me all about what they had done and what he had learned. Highly recommended by me and definitely by my son!"

"My Daughter Really Flourished"
"I started my daughter here about 2 months ago, just before she turned 3. I am so thankful I found this school, I love it! It is a small school, a 1:6 ratio which at a normal preschool it is about 1:12 ratio for 3 yr olds so a lot more individual attention first of all. The teacher, Justina could not be any better! She is so nice, flexible, affordable and knowledgable. The school is behind her house and I like that it has that more homey setting because I was home with my daughter so it seems like a more natural transition than going to a big preschool with a lot of kids. My daughter has really flourished since starting there, she is very imaginative, talking even more and even asks to go to school!"

"GLM is a Great Foundation"
"Our son has attended Guiding Light Montessori for just over a month now and is excelling! We were quite nervous about transitioning him from his prior day care to GLM, but he has done beautifully and of course that is due in large part to the wonderful environment that Justina/GLM provides for him. We feel that GLM is a great foundation and place for our son to play, learn & grow in this first years. My husband and I are so glad we found Justina/GLM!"

"The Results Were Fantastic"
"Justina was the preschool teacher for my sons. They both loved her and the results of her teaching were fantastic. Both boys were strong readers with excellent number sense going into Kindergarten. I would highly recommend her program to other families."
