We are really lucky that we found Petite Montessori. I spent so much time looking for a preschool for my 3 y/o daughter as this was the first school she would attend and I wanted to find the best school out there. When we took our daughter to other schools, she was just overwhelmed and scared at the same time. When Miss DeAnna kindly invited us into Petite Montessori, my daughter just behaved like she was in her own home. And the moment we saw Miss DeAnna and her heart-warming welcoming school environment, we knew this was it!! I had a lot of concerns for sending her to a school for the first time just like other moms but after 4 months I have nothing to worry about. My daughter loves going to Petite Montessori and meeting her friends and Miss DeAnna and her staff. Even during weekends she asks me to take her to the school. I have seen a lot of better changes in her and couldn't be happier. Seriously I think this is the best school out there and wish all other teachers/caregivers were like them!!

I couldn't be happier with our children attending Petite Montessori and the quality of education provided by Miss DeAnna and her staff. The environment is calm, structured and nuturing, with students allowed to pursue whatever interests them for the day. The small class size affords plenty of opportunity for one on one teaching which traditional academics (reading/math) but also includes music, dance, science, Spanish, yoga and sign language. Like many other parents, I spend a great deal of time researching other schools and even tried out a few other schools in the area. However, this school is by far the best fit for our children (currently 3 and 5 years old). In addition, Miss DeAnna and her staff have been absolutely wonderful in looking out for my younger son who has multiple food allergies. If I could give her school 10 stars, I would!

I extensively research everything, so you can imagine how much time and energy I spent trying to find a suitable preschool for my only son (including reading all the reviews). We liked Miss DeAnna as soon as we met her and knew right away that this was the program and the setting we wanted for our 3 year-old. He is finishing his first year and we couldn't be happier about our choice to enroll him (initially 3 days a week, then full time). I really appreciate the promptness and thoroughness with which Miss DeAnna always addressed any concerns I had (and I had quite a few).

We were looking for a place that would completely support our child's love of learning. We get that and so much more. Petite Montessori provides an amazing extension of, and complement to, the morals and importance of learning and having fun that we strive for at home. We love how proud our daughter is as she talks about her day, what she learned, and her accomplishments. They fit in a huge variety of information and activities throughout the year. We were truly lucky to get an opening for our oldest daughter almost 2 1/2 years ago. As she gets ready to move on (undoubtedly prepared) to kindergarten in the fall, we are surely excited to have enrolled our second daughter there as well!

Preschool is one of those milestones I wasn't ready for when my lil one turned 3. Being a SAHM I truly enjoyed the time we had together but I could tell my daughter was ready for something more. I knew I wanted a Montessori school and I was lucky my first visit was with Ms. DeAnna because my standards after that where set exactly to what she offered at Petite Montessori. A clean, calm, gentle environment provides the children with a park like setting, an awesome play yard and a garden no less. Her curriculum is engaging with yoga, music, art, math, language, computer and life skills. After a year and a half my daughters independence and confidence is truly noticed. The teachers provide a compassionate and encouraging environment that is noticed on EVERY little ones face at pick up. My youngest will be 3 in the fall and go to Petite Montessori. Instead of the anxiousness I felt before it's been replaced with excitement because I know how lucky we were to find Ms. DeAnna!

We have been going to Petite Montessori for the last two years and couldn't have made a better choice! We researched and interviewed several other preschools and none compared to the academic curriculum and the one-on-one attention provided to each child. We knew from the moment we met Ms. DeAnna, this was the school for our daughter. In just a couple months of going to school part-time, we saw a dramatic change in her social behavior. She was more out-going and willing to try new things on her own. The school has not only helped to build her confidence, but also allowed her to grow and learn into a well-rounded individual. She learns so much each week and loves to share it with us. We now have our second daughter enrolled in school and she is just flourishing as a 3 year-old. Ms. DeAnna makes learning a fun adventure for the kids while providing a kind and caring environment, not to mention a super clean one too. I'm so glad that there are still teachers like Ms. DeAnna to help shape and take care of our little ones!!

We are so lucky to have found Petite Montessori for our daughter. I spent over a year researching many preschools in the area. Just when I was getting ready to commit to another school, another mom friend told me about Miss DeAnna??s school. The minute I walked in for a tour, I knew we had found ??the one?. The small size of the school is the perfect transition for toddlers to enter a classroom setting. Miss DeAnna and Miss Meredith provide an excellent learning environment. The classroom setting is so calm and the children are so focused on learning in their own fun way. I love how my daughter has blossomed socially and academically this past year. And most importantly, she is happy there. Every day when I pick her up, I get confirmation that I chose the right place.

My daughter is anxiously looking forward to another year at Petite Montessori. She and I absolutely adore Ms. DeAnna! I was unfamiliar with home based Montessoris but after meeting Ms. DeAnna and touring the classroom setting I was very impressed and and felt totally comfortable with my daughter attending school here. I'm so amazed at how much she has learned this past year! From the basics ABC's & 123's to sign language, spanish, dance, yoga, music, art, science, garden. I could go on and on. I love seeing the smile on my daughter's face when I pick her up and when she tells me all about her day. She's always super excited to tell me what she's made / learned in class. I can't say enough about Ms. DeAnna and Petite Montessori.

The atmosphere and attention to detail by the staff at Petite Montessori is outstanding. Our son benefited enormously from the variety of activities and areas of experience and learning that were offered. He attended the school for over 2 years, and is so much more than prepared to being Kindergarten, socially and academically. The consistent nurture and structure, the openness to explore, and the extracurricular dance, music, and yoga will have a lasting impact on his life.

I could not more highly recommend a preschool.

As a proud parent of two little ones, I have to say that choosing Petite Montessori was one of the best decisions we have ever made as a family. And while I'm sure folks out there read internet 'reviews' with an air of caution, I'll be as honest as possible about why we are so happy with the school. To say I would recommend this school is an understatement. I am absolutely convinced that Petite Montessori FOUND US...and I go to work everyday knowing my children are in perfect hands. I am very grateful, to say the least.

My son started at Petite Montessori around age 3, and my daughter attended at age 2 1/2. Yep, they are classmates!

Petite Montessori is actually located in the rear of a beautiful house. Don't be fooled by the aesthetics..this is a SCHOOL While it might not look like your average classroom setting, the learning environment is perfect. You can feel the structure, complemented by a wonderful air of creativity. The atmosphere is peaceful, away from the typical chaos I've seen other classrooms.

I could probably write another 10 paragraphs on why I love sending my kids to Petite Montessori. I'm constantly amazed with what they learn.....they are light years ahead of my expectations.
Most important, the school is not only focused on ABCs and 123s.
My children are taught compassion, patience, sharing, creative thought, etc.

10 stars.

Thanks Ms Deanna!

Let me start off by stating, I had some big concerns enrolling our son into this type of schooling. Even the first week of the school I was weary of the style, but we decide to stick with it.

I have had a complete change of heart and would definetly recommend this school to anyone.

The environment and atmostphere are excellent which is why my wife and I decided to enroll our son there in the first place. My son began in Jan and each day he comes home he has learned new things. Whether it is about mammals, shapes, fish or a new song he is learning at a very quick pace. My wife and I are extremely happy we enrolled our son there and even already have plans to enroll our daughter when she is old enough.

Our daughter has been attending Patite Montessori for just over a year now. I could not be happier with her progress during this time. The small and caring environment has been just perfect for her. She is continually exposed to new and exciting subjects and learning tools. It is clear this has been just the right place to prepare her for kindergarten and beyond.

We enrolled our almost 3 year old son in January/February of 2010, and couldn't be happier. After researching over 10 different preschools, and visiting about half of them, Petite Montessori was our pick the moment we met Miss DeAnna and observed the class. We were looking for a place that not only educated but nurtured, and Petite Montessori is a perfect fit! Jude is always excited to start the day there and is the happiest little guy when we pick him up. He loves to talk about all of his new friends, as well as all that he learned in the day, and we love all of his projects he brings home. We are so excited that he is learning new things in a safe, structured, and loving environment. We also appreciate being able to easily communicate with the teachers, and their effort in keeping the parents involved.

I am very happy with our desicion to enroll our son Jacob at Petitie Montessori. Jacob is 3 1/2 and has been attending Petite Montessori since January (2010). He absolutly loves it and wants to go to his new school all the time. He has learned so many new things in such a short time. He is constantly singing and telling us about all the fun stuff he is doing at school. I would definately recommend Miss DeAnna to anyone looking for a warm friendly environment where your little one will learn so many new things and enjoy the time spent doing it.

I am so happy I was able to have my daughter begin her school experience with Miss DeAnna at Petite Montessori. It was a smooth transition that allowed her to be comfortable going from being at home all the time to a warm, caring, nurturing environment at preschool. She was made to feel comfortable and happy, and grew very confident with Miss DeAnna's guidance and her new friends at school. In addition, she learned more than I realised was possible for a toddler. This was a very positive experience for both of us. I would definitely recommend Petite Montessori to anyone interested in expanding their child's world!

We experienced several types of daycare/preschool facilities. Petite Montessori was by far the best. We felt very fortunate to have Miss DeAnna care for our daughter and help her to reach her fullest potential academically and developmentally.She balances nutrition, education, developmental abilities and nurturing in an educational environment tailored to each child's abilities and needs.

My daughter is 41/2 years old. She is starting her 3rd year at Petite Montessori. She loves going there and has really excelled in this environment. She is reading, knows her continents, loves art and has been working with addition and subtraction.

DeAnna the teacher/owner has created a wonderful child care environment where kids feel safe, have fun and love to learn. She brings in Special Guests and has special events (art show, mother's day tea, field trips)

I highly recommend this Preschool/DayCare facility to anyone considering Petite Montessori for their child!
