Dear Mary and Bill,

We cannot thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to give our kids the BEST education we could ever ask for, for helping us invest in the foundation of our children’s lives. We moved away from our family 10 years ago, it was the hardest thing we ever did. We vowed to give our kids the family that we had, which became the Montessori School of Westfield, our Indiana family. This would not have been possible without you both. We know our kids are in good hands. They are being taught what we refer to as “old fashioned” values. I have always been impressed by the fact that any time I have come to the school and the elementary/middle school kids see me coming towards the school they automatically go to open the door for me. They are so respectful. To see them interact and find it such a privilege to help with the younger kids, brings tears to my eyes every time. You have built another world for our children to thrive and be successful in while learning to love and accept others for who they are. Of course, there are always challenges, but you address them, not ignore them. You teach our children how to express their feelings in a healthy way. I love that it’s not always the teacher that actually teaches the lesson, but their peers. Independent, compassionate children become successful adults/teachers. If anything, you and my children are teaching me how to be a better parent daily.

It says a lot to us when our kids are excited to go to school and learn. We only wish we could have experienced this kind of education in our youth. I went through the Montessori training and I can say to see the actual process within my children is absolutely amazing and makes me realize how important it is to trust and believe in your child. It is unbelievable the results you see when you actually trust that their sensitive periods come in to play when they are ready and they can be successful in that area.   We may not be near our family, but we understand why now, we would never have been able to raise our kids in this environment back home. Your teachers have a passion for what they do and they are exceptional at what they do. For that, I thank you a million times over. I look forward to the years to come and thank you both for the blessings you have given to our family.

 

Love,

Ian & Kelly Haupricht

Hi, Mary.

I am only halfway through chapter one, and I feel so appreciative of what you offer children at MSW;  freedom to move, no heavy backpacks, lots of outdoor play to strengthen bodies, chiropractic advice, and I’m only on page 19!  You are offering a better way in so many ways!!!! Add the awesome Montessori materials to that equation, and we can change the world!  I am so thankful that Korynne and Kyler were raised at MSW, and that I can give children these opportunities in CH1!  I can’t say thank you enough.  I feel so blessed to be a part of something so big!
