Several studies have shown that bilingual education has several advantages, providing cognitive, social and health benefits for young children. Add to this the benefits of the Montessori method, and you have an exceptional preschool. My older son enjoyed his preschool years in this school, and this prepared him well for the GISNY (German International School NY) and my daughter is very happy in the school now. I would highly recommend!
