I think about learning to read because I became a life-long reader. While my elementary school classmates were learning how to sound words out, I was reading chapter books. While my junior high classmates were learning reading comprehension, I was learning how to think critically about what I was reading. While my high school classmates were struggling with writing coherent essays, I was planning to study English literature. It’s not enough to say I was given a head start; I was given the tools to keep progressing all through school.
I don’t think there’s a better way to explain what’s good about Judy and about Farmview and about Montessori than this. I am currently watching my five-year-old nephew learn to read at Farmview and I cannot tell you how exciting it is. I tell him that once he learns to read, he can learn anything. It’s the beginning, but what if everyone were given this foundation? Maybe the world would be a better place!

I found that place at Farmview. And Oh! What a find. What I found was the Montessori method. It was everything I wanted, needed and more for my daughter. Following my daughter were my 2 sons who also attended Farmview. All 3 of my children got a foundation of learning to carry them into adulthood
Fast forward 22 years – and I am proud to say that I once again find myself at Farmview, with the same needs, but this time for my grandson.
Yes my son who attended Farmview is now watching his son grow and blossom just as I watched my children do the same. What a pleasure for him to come back it this place and find Judy Ruberg, his teacher, still here. Thanks to her dedication and caring, children at Farmview receive a quality, true Montessori education.
The result: A child who grows confidently, socially, academically, independently, preparation for life. This is what we all want for our children and grandchildren!
