    What Parents Are Saying

    My two children attended DMS DB, and it’s difficult to describe how much they gained and learned while there. The love, care, and connections the teachers built with the kids are indescribable. My son loved every day there and the creative approach to learning. My daughter joined as a baby and went all the way until school. She gained independence, knowledge, and friendships there that will last a lifetime (so did I)! She still remembers their performance dances and songs and performs them at home. She talks about her teachers and how amazing they are, even though she left almost a year ago.

    Levi’s excitement to share what happens at school always surprises us, especially after a special activity / event / speaker visit that is out of his regular work cycles. The school has been very supportive to our family. All teachers are very friendly, not only to Levi, but to our other children too. Whenever we meet at school drop-off / pick-up, they express such care and kindness to us. When we had a newborn, it was a nice gesture of DMA to give us a gift inspired by Montessori learning. Whenever we have questions, we are encouraged to connect with the teachers, which is helpful to keep track of Levi’s growth. We realized not all children enjoy learning, but Levi really loves it and is always curious to find out information in his own way when he is interested in something. Montessori/IB learning encourages him to ask questions and explore something that might be out of the traditional school curriculum for his age. He has gained a lot of friendships with not only peers but with adults (teachers and helpers at DMA). DMA has created a lovely environment for Levi to learn how to interact with other people and build confidence in himself. We also think it is apparent that he enjoys learning because of the way he learns at DMA. We would recommend (and have recommended) DMA. Teachers are committed to helping Levi grow to his fullest potential, which is one of the main reasons why we love DMA.

    To anyone thinking of signing their toddlers up at Discovery Montessori DB: We are a Franco-American family of 5 in Discovery Bay. Our middle child enrolled at Discovery Montessori when she was 4 years old, having previously attended a kindergarten where she wasn’t really enjoying her experience.

    The combination of the wonderful team and staff along with the authentic Montessori philosophy resulted in a wonderful learning journey. She was always happy to come in and be greeted by the whole team, the environment and level of support was simply incredible. Our conclusion as a family is that besides from teachers having a strong background in education, the best environments for young learners will be the ones where the staff are leading from the heart, with passion and drive to do their best for little ones.

    Discovery Montessori DB is exactly that, not to mention the wonderful little plays, graduation, Mother’s Day, sports day or World Fair Day. The amount of effort they put in is beautiful. Highly recommended and we currently have our youngest one enrolled.

    Diego enjoyed very much his time in DMS. I don´t recall one day when he didn´t want to attend school or stayed there being sad, he felt at home and free at DMS. He developed strong relationships with other children and made his best friends there!!! He had the opportunity to be taught by 2 amazing teachers (Ms Natalie and Ms Asha) who were caring, paying close attention to his development and making sure I was aware of his progress. Diego is very rational. He is logical in his conclusions and his thoughts are very well structured. He is also very organized with his toys and supportive with activities at home. He is an independent boy …and I think all this is product of the Montessori education. I am very thankful for this. I am very happy with the progress I have seen in the development of Diego and he was very happy being part of the school and its activities. Thanks for all!!

    Free the child’s potential and you will transform him into the world” It takes an astute teacher to understand each child as an individual in a busy class. Only with great patience and a high emotional quotient can teachers truly develop strong bonds with their students. Forging this close bond with the child will facilitate his readiness to approach the world with confidence. DMS can pride itself in having cherry picked their teachers to fulfil these tall requirements. A tailor made teaching approach to each kindergarten child seems formidable, but happens in their classes. In his two years in DMS our son has grown by leaps and bounds. We have seen him swell in confidence, acquire excellent social skills, experience the joy of learning and further develop his inquisitive mind. His excellent preschool experience has laid a strong foundation for his future and opened his mind to the limitless possibilities this world has to offer. Thank you DMS for moulding our little boy beautifully. We will miss you!

    My daughter Isabel has been going to DMS since she turned 3 and I am impressed with the progress she has shown in math, writing and reading, geography. At 4.5 she is able to add thousands on paper, read level 1 books, spell and write down simple 5-6 letter words, name continents and countries. DMS teachers are exceptional educators gently but consistently taking my daughter further and further down the education lane covering geography, science, natural history among other subjects. Having no one speaking Chinese at home – I am also surprised to see Isabel picking up Mandarin at school so easily. In additional school management is putting tremendous efforts to organize schools activities and events for parents and children to name a few – frequent yoga and dance classes, seasonal celebrations and fairs, field trips, sports days, fundraisers, graduation ceremony. I am also a big fan of the mixed age classroom approach where youngsters are led by the example of older children and older children are given leadership roles and responsibilities over younger kids. I would highly recommend Discovery Montessori School in Discovery Bay as an excellent place for children to learn and have fun.

    Hello! My son Caleb had attended the Discovery Montessori School (DMS) in Sheung Wan for the past three years and it is my pleasure to write of our experience at the school. My wife and I had decided early on to choose a school that uses the Montessori style as we believe it is most attuned to the natural development of children and respectful of the individuality and autonomy of each child. We chose DMS despite living in Kowloon as we believe it provides the most orthodox form of Montessori teaching style as opposed to other schools that claim to be Montessori but are actually a mixture of styles. Each class has two teachers (one teaches English and the other Putonghua) who are qualified Montessori teachers. We have been very happy with our time spent at DMS and grateful to all the teachers who had taught Caleb over these three years including Ms. Natalie and Ms. Elisha, Ms. Tiffany and Ms. Cheung, Ms. Asha and Ms. Wong. They have been very patient and professional in nurturing Caleb (who is very shy and sensitive) to becoming more confident and independent. Caleb has been allowed to learn at his own pace and enjoys his time at school. The teachers are responsive to questions and we believe they really go the extra mile to deliver a very positive experience for every child. Thank you DMS !!

    My children have been attending Discovery Montessori Academy (DMA) for about a year now. What I love the most is how my child can work on a variety of skills independently, gaining autonomy and self-control. They have found their curiosities over different topics throughout the year and the teachers have been very supportive, creating a safe environment to enable their exploration.

    DMA is a small school and its beauty shines through. The teachers are always happy to discuss individual performance, both academically and socially. Whenever a challenge arises, they work with the parents the find the best solution for the child. Management is very accessible. The principal is at the gate welcoming the children into the school.

    I would highly recommend DMA. It has not only helped my children on their learning journey, but also helped me to grow as a parent.
