We looked extensively at childcare options in Metairie and New Orleans and have firsthand experience with quite a few of them. While there are other good programs, Kinder Haus is simply phenomenal. The teachers are all engaged, warm, and well-educated in the Montessori philosophy. I have dropped by many times completely unannounced and always been not only satisfied, but pleasantly surprised, with the relaxed and joyful atmosphere in the classroom. The children ("friends") interact with one another in a friendly and natural way. I was concerned that my child, being one of the youngest, may be intimidated or ignored by other students. Unsurprisingly, however, he loves the "big kids." And they also treat him as a friend. Even when he first started, they would (unprompted by any adult), unobtrusively bring him toys or otherwise invite him into their play in a gentle way. There is a real culture of peace and respect among the classmates, even at the toddler level.

Of note, a play-based experience is very important to me, and I was unsure whether he'd be getting that at Kinder Haus. My concerns about whether he'd get to play enough were completely unfounded. Our child spends hours every day engaged in open-ended free play at Kinder Haus, and that play seamlessly overlaps with his "work" at the sensory tables or latch board, for example. He started at the minimum age (approximately 15 months, I believe) and has learned so much from the other children and his teachers, but he's never been pushed to do anything but play and learn at his own pace.

I held off on writing a review for several months, because I wanted to be sure that my initial positive impression was borne out over time. It has been. I now advise any of my friends who are looking for childcare recommendations to get on the waitlist at Kinder Haus.

Both of my children are at Kinder Haus with the oldest having been there for 2 years. I am very happy with their care there. All of the teachers care about my children and want them to succeed. My kids are learning every day and really enjoy going to school. I have recommended it to many friends and a lot of them now have their kids there too.

My one year old son attends Kinder Haus and I couldn't be happier! I pay $300 a month for him to go two days a week from 8:30-2:30. Actually they allow me to drop him off at 8 right after I drop off my daughter at her school. I really didn't know what to expect but what drew me there is the flexibility with the schedule. They hAve before and after care as well as half days (8:30-11:30). His teachers Mrs. Julie and Mrs. Lauren are so loving. Mrs. Julie emails me pictures of my child playing and working just about everyday he attends. You don't need to send lunch, they have a cook on staff that prepares fresh foods everyday. I really like that at snack time my child is given water and not juice.
I have been more than pleased with the toddler room! My child surprised both my husband and I recently at a restaurant when he refused to eat until I figured out he wanted a spoon to eat with!! Neither my husband nor I have been teaching him yet how to use utensils at meal time(he is 15 months old)-he learned this from attending this school. Montessori isn't for everyone but it is worth your time to consider looking at it. It is a small school so you will quickly feel at home and know all of the staff. My child started this school at 13 months and at week two he was happily running into school in the morning!

I did as much research as I could before enrolling my son in the toddler program. I was more than happy to pay such high tuition to make sure my son was in a happy, loving learning environment. The first thing I noticed is the amount of time the school is closed throughout the year, and their expectation to pay a full month of tuition ( two days a week/ $428 a month) when the school is closed two weeks for Christmas, 5 days for Mardi Gras, 3 days in Aug for " teacher workshop" etc... But more importantly, when I picked my son up at the end of the day he was either dirty or the top elastic part of his pants were wet, like his diaper had leaked! His last day came when my husband called me at work to tell me he found a note from the school that listed " banana" as one of his snacks even though I listed under his food allergies- bananas! I picked him up at the end of the day and he wasn't in his normal toddler room, as I walked around the school looking for him I could hear him balling his little eyes out ( we all know our child's cry) as I rushed towards the closed door room I could hear a woman firming yelling at him to " stop it!!" My son is 20 months old and in tears, this broke my heart and raised my blood pressure!! He was in a room with much older kids on the floor crying.. When I came in I said " What's going on?!? Why is he crying so hard?! Who are you?!" ( not his regular teacher) she replied; " I don't know why he's crying, they just put all the kids in this room so they could have teacher meetings" she knew nothing about my son, not even his name. Couldn't be bothered to try to comfort him or anything! I had the heartless woman get the director and she said " yes I'm busy we have teacher meetings" she was concerned about the banana but she said my son was " fine" ( clearly he wasn't ) the teacher and director denied giving him the banana and said it was written by mistake and another teacher must have been confused when she wrote it down! I had such a hard time leaving my son anywhere, and I really suggest coming into this school or ANY daycare or school to see what goes on when they think you aren't looking.

My oldest has been at Kinderhaus for the past 2 years and she loved it. The teachers are nice, nurturing, educated and knowledgeable regarding Montessori. The child, its needs and skills are definitely the priority here.
Anyway, Montessori is not for every child and some need a little more guidance.
