"After many pre-school interviews and analysis…, Magali Zimmermann's program stood out as special and different. We sent all three of our children to San Marin Montessori Pre-School and could not be more pleased with Magali and her school. Our kids loved going to her school because they loved being part of a school where they learned in an environment where everyone respects each other. Magali is one of those rare teachers who can make a connection with the children and understand their unique needs and capabilities. She made each of our children feel special. She created an environment where students worked as a team and individually. Our children learned all the materials needed to be ready for Kindergarten, while developing friendships that will last long past elementary school. Magali's classroom evolves as the child develops and is very academically oriented. She prides herself on helping her students reach their full potential, where they become confident, capable, loving and independent learners. All of our children marched into Kindergarten fully capable and ready for the next learning chapter."
