Our number 1 priority when we moved to Sykesville was finding the best place to care for our child while we worked. Without having family close by, it was important to find somewhere that our son loved going to as well as somewhere he could grow both socially and intellectually. We were so happy to be referred by a friend to Ava Wanas. We have found the nurturing environment we needed and best of all our son loves going!! The Montessori method has our son learning even when he thinks he is playing. He spends lots of time outside exploring the garden, watching the chickens and playing in the dirt too!! School is definitely his home away from home.
