CMMS – Forest Hill is more than just a daycare.  Our curriculum and enrichment programs are guided by the Montessori Method allowing your child to explore, learn, and develop themselves fully. In addition to daily classroom instruction, students receive enrichment in STEM, Spanish, Music, Yoga, and Library. Our Montessori School in Forest Hill focuses on the development of the whole child.  Therefore, we offer Montessori based daycare, preschool, and Kindergarten programs that balance the social/emotional, cognitive, physical, and academic development of children.
