My 4yr old child attended Gold Material Montessori. This week, she has been terminated from this private pre-school because I made a big STINK about discrimination due to the fact that my child's father is middle-eastern. The school owners are Russian. I had my last straw last week when my daughter was excluded from Father/Daughter dance while other girls were included and when confronted via email the school specifically stated the reason: "because your husband is not Russian, he wouldn't be able to learn from the Russian dance instructor". No other reason was provided in the email besides fact that my husband is NOT Russian. Mind you, the school's program is 100% in English and we were never told that there's a need for any parents to know Russian. After a week of email exchanges, we received a termination letter from school mentioning some bull&*() contract articles breached (such as 1x in two years being 45 seconds late. Yes, you read it right, 45 seconds. Only, we are not stupid. If this lateness was a problem, why weren't we terminated then?

IT WAS BLATANT DISCRIMINATION IN AN EDUCATIONAL SETTING.

This termination notice was given to us 3 months before my child's pre-school graduation and 1 month before my child's birthday party at school - with no notice whatsoever to us parents.

WARNING TO ALL: Administration - who speak broken English, and especially the daughter-in-law of owners - Varvara Radymushkina - run the daycare like they are in some Gestapo in USSR: ruthlessly and cruelly expelling a child from an educational setting, and with no regards to child's well being because a parent brings up concerns.

These people need to be taught that they are no longer in the USSR. That in USA this is not the way to treat parents, especially when they pay $1444/month. As a Montessori school, they should know that part of their accreditation is to set up a grievance system for a parent to at least appeal termination, especially when it's on such invalid reasons.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. TWO THUMBS DOWN. Would also like to mention, my close friend who suggested this day care to me voluntarily left the school a few months prior to what happened to us. Another parent also took out her child because she was unhappy.

And lastly, read Yelp reviews - the numerous NEGATIVE reviews should make it obvious that this is one school to RUN FROM. This is my personal opinion posted based on my personal experience.
