Tanglewood has helped shape our 5 year old son into a kind, caring and compassionate little boy. He has learned so much from the Montessori program, and find that it's helped him with his exploration. They have really helped open his mind up to trying new things and new adventures. Curriculum wise, we miss Tanglewood. He is now in JK at a different school and complains that he's "bored" and that "we don't even do any counting or writing". We do a lot of work at home on weekends to make sure he retains what Tanglewood taught him, and keep the velocity of his learning. In hindsight we wish we kept him back at Tanglewood for JK/SK but he loves his new school, has made new friends, so it's hard to change schools again. Our 2 year old daughter is currently in the Toddler program at Tanglewood, so we may keep her in the program as long as they allow us.
In terms of the staff and the environment, you really can't ask for much more. The staff treats every child with the respect they deserve, but know how to discipline when required. Our daughter jumps out of bed in the morning "can we go to Clarita now?", which is always a great sign. Ms. Patti, the personal chef, is incredible at what she does and the kids LOVE her food. Take one look at their weekly menu, and you'll see why. The environment is so warm and inviting. It's located in an old century home in south Oakville, which makes the children feel safe in a home type of environment. The outdoor space is the best we've seen within surrounding daycares.
When we first moved to Oakville our son was 2, we went to see A LOT of daycares. All the other daycare visits, he'd cling to my leg not wanting to let go. As soon as we walked into Tanglewood, he didn't cling to my leg and began exploring. That sold us immediately, we let him tell us what he wanted. His besfriends are all still from Tanglewood even though none of them go there anymore. And we've made some GREAT friends with the parents and still keep in touch all the time.
Safety, Transparency, Compassion and kindness is what I always think of when I think of Tanglewood.
Cons: They make learning fun and equip the kids with a lot of knowledge, the public curriculum is behind so be prepared to work with your children evenings and weekends.
Our son went to Tanglewood from when he was 18 months to 3 years old and the experience was truly above and beyond what both my husband and I would have ever expected. Everyone at the school made us feel so incredibly comfortable and only showed love and care throughout his years. Our son has now moved on to JK, but until today he still speaks about his "little school" and how much he misses everyone. We found the Montessori program to be very enriched while still allowing each child develop and strive at their own speed. Tanglewood is truly the perfect hidden gem of Oakville and I will forever speak very highly of this school. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!
It was a bittersweet moment last June when our son graduated from Tanglewood School. For more than 3 years, he had spent his days with caring, innovative teachers whose approach to curriculum was engaging, fun, and patient, encouraging him to develop his autonomy and build his confidence. Moreover, we are grateful to their incredible chef whose delicious fare tempted him to try new flavours. The children's Christmas concert and graduation ceremony were highlights each year, but the day to day is where Tanglewood really shines.
The staff at Tanglewood is exceptional!!! Everyone is very professional and experienced. The teachers, as well as support staff, truly care for the well being of the students. Communication with parents is a priority at Tanglewood. Parents are alway well informed about curriculum, special events, upcoming birthdays, menu etc. My son has such fond memories from his year at the school. He came home with a wealth of knowledge on various topics. (It was actually surprising for a 3 year old to retain so much). I highly recommend the school to parents looking for a real Montessori environment, an organized and clean learning space, with a fantastic play ground.
First, of all thank you so much to everyone at Tanglewood for making my boys first experience in a school atmosphere such a positive one. The school is one of the best I have experienced and heard of for preschoolers. If you are looking to be treated like family, have your children cared for like you would, learn, enjoy and make new friends in an incredible facility with teachers that are amazing beyond words... then look no further than Tanglewood. Thank you to everyone at Tanglewood you are superstars! We miss you all
