The Montessori School: For families who want more for their child

Each child is unique – and their brain is unique. Most brain development happens during the first six years of a child’s life. That is why the preschool years are so important for each child. Choosing the right school for your child is a critical factor in your child’s development.

The Montessori School in Morrisville considers all aspects of your child’s development in preparing their classroom for your child.

They offer a program that

  1. follows the best in recognized Montessori principles,
  2. is sensitive to your child’s unique combination of social, intellectual, emotional, artistic, and physical gifts, and
  3. encourages preschool through kindergarten age children to maximize all of their special talents.

Duncan’s School of Driving: Helping students improve their driving skills

Duncan’s School of Driving employs certified driving instructors for Behind-the-Wheel driving lessons. Their instructors have up to 30 years of experience and truly enjoy helping each student improve their driving skills. At the end of each lesson the instructor will give the student a rating sheet so that parents know exactly where their child stands on all requisite skills.

Duncan’s has only one student in the car for the entire lesson so that they can be the sole focus of the instructor. There is no “piggy back” system where drivers pick up the next student, which can be awkward or unsettling for drivers in training.

Duncan’s also offers an on-line program for Classroom Education. Students can complete the required modules anywhere and anytime from a web-enabled computer.
