I can't say enough on how great this school is. It is a well rounded school with a wonderful curriculum and various different guests and activities for the kids. From the Mariachi band for Cinco de Mayo to Tumble Bus and piano lessons, my daughter has learned self respect, discipline and life long lessons. Ms. Millie and the entire staff put so much time and effort in all they do. I especially enjoy their holiday program. The children are so adorable and well-rehearsed. On top of facilites being the best I've seen at any preschool, HMS runs so well and is very organized. The staff at HMS have a lot of patience and provide much stability for our children. Most of all, thank you, Ms. Millie and Ms. Teresa for providing a nurturing and positive environment for our little ones to grown and learn. My daughter is not only academically prepared, but she is confident and has an extremely positive attitude towards school.

Signed,

A highly satisfied HMS parent

I have seen a real difference in my son now that he is in a good school. He learns very fast when challenged and since atteding Heritage he has been challenged. Ms. Rehanna knows how to inspire her students and bring out their personal bests.

THANK YOU

My son has enjoyed everday at Heritage and he has grown so much since his first day three years ago! All of the dedication and effort the staff has shown is unsurpassed. We will both cherish the school for a lifetime!

I was searching for a Montessori school for my 4 year old daughter. After doing all my research on Montessori, visiting three other local Montessori schools, Heritage was my last stop and I hit the jack pot! I had made an appointment but had to cancel. A couple of days later I was in the area and thought I would just take a chance. Ms. Jamie greeted me at the door and invited my daughter and I in like we were family. Ms. Jamie was already with another parent looking at the school. Instead of turning me away she said to just join the the tour in progress. The other parent and I were so impressed with what we saw. The classroom was spacious, beautiful, and impecably clean. The kids were all engaged in their toys. Some of the kids were doing art while one teacher was giving a lesson to a small group, and yet another teacher was monitoring the rest of the kids. We were shown the entire facility. All of the staff greeted us with a smile as we walked around. The atmosphere was professional but relaxed, everyone seemed to truly enjoy themselves. My daughter will definitely be a Heritage Montessori student as soon as they have a spot for her. She cried when I told her we were leaving. She didn't have that reaction about any of the other schools we visited.

I want to thank you, Ms. Rehanna, for being such an amazing teacher. I appreciate you taking the time to work with my daughter one on one and for challenging her. I've seen the progress that she has made this year and know that's it's been because all of your hard work. She really enjoys being in your class and is fortunate to have you as her instructor. The world really does need more teachers like you!

I recently met Ms. Jamie and Ms. Lynne at Heritage Montessori.
I droped by as a new parent and was immediately welcomed with open arms by Ms. Jamie even though is was later during the day and I did not make a prior appointment.
Ms. Lynne gave me a tour of the school the next week, showed me the class where my son would be placed once accepted and patiently explained the Montessori method as it related to what we were observing first hand in the classroom.
My son has a speech delay and experiences some minor sensory delays as well. I was initially afraid that this would be a problem since some school have biases against delays in children, even though these same children are also gifted in many instances. At Heritage Montessori, however, the staff was very sweet and welcoming of my son. Ms. Lynne and Ms. Jamie treated him lovingly and kindly the entire time and it is so easy to tell the level of patience and care they have. My son felt very confortable with them and comfortably entertained himself as I filled out paper work in the office (which is equiped to keep the little ones busy while parents are busy talking to administrators).
There is currently a waiting list for little children and I feel it is definitely worth waiting for a chance to be part of this school. It is obvious that they have rigorous standards but I think that is a plus when it comes to our precious little ones.
My child has an amazing capacity for learning even though he is a bit behind in his speech. He is only 3 but already recognizes hundreds of written words. I know this method and this school specifically will get the best out of him since the method taps into each child's strengths, while at regular school gifted kids are usually forced to follow a slow curriculum. I truly feel that it will be worth the wait.
I highly recommend it to everyone. I will make sure to follow up with more great news about the school once my son is enrolled and enjoying their wonderful programs.

Dear Heritage Montessori School,

I want to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Heritage for their effort and teachings for Tyler. Thanks to all of your recommendations, Tyler gets enough sleep now and we see a difference in his behavior and education as well. I will recommend and have recommended many of my friends to Heritage Montessori School.

Thank You,

My family's experience at HMS has been incredible. I am so thankful for the time my children were able to attend this school. I have been overwhelmed by the progress both of the boys have made academically and socially. We are so fortunate to have found a learning environment where our children have been able to progress based on their abilities not their age or maturity level. It has been so great over the past two years to see the academic challenges they have been presented with, overcome and ultimately progressed to the next level. We love that HMS provides an environment where children can learn and socialize with multiple ages in one classroom. The concept of positive peer motivation has been a truly invaluable experience. As a result my boys have had an opportunity to peer model older children and have developed the skills to nurture and help younger ones. They have learned to find value in relationships regardless of another child's age. This is truly one of my favorite parts of the Montessori experience. HMS has such a wonderful balance between their academic lessons paired with wonderful hands on learning experiences. My children have learned so much from the extra enrichment of field trips, special presentations and hands on learning in the classroom. The science experiments and art history lessons have really inspired the boys to continue their learning at home and recreate famous artist's work. It has really been a joy to witness them teach us what they have learned with great enthusiasm.

We have been so impressed with staff''s dedication to the students at HMS as well as all of the little details that make the school so special. I really appreciate all the effort that goes into all of the seasonal celebrations, the annual open house project, Spring and Halloween carnival and the list goes on and on. Such amazing opportunities the students have been presented with. I have especially loved all of the care and thought and attention to detail put into the custom designed just for HMS uniforms. Just another sign of the commitment that has been made to HMS, truly one of the best academic options out there.

As my children continue on their academic journey I know they will take so much of what they learned at HMS with them. It has been such a unique experience to be part of the HMS family. I know that HMS has made a very positive contribution during this precious time of child development to my boys academic success, their character and ultimately to the confident men they will one day become. Thank you HMS for the wonderful and enriching experience. As a family we greatly appreciate all of your efforts and wish you all the best.

Dear Miss Rehanna and Heritage Montessori School:

On behalf of not just Scot, Luke and I , but, also on behalf of "our Group" of Close Families and Friends,
we THANK YOU for your true dedication and work ethic when it comes to Montessori and the molding and
shaping of our Amazing Kids !!!

As you all know, we had a rough go of it at first with Luke and school, and his ear, nose and throat "issues". You were there for us, at our side, year after year as a partner in Luke's education,
his socialization and his HEALTH intellectually, emotionally and physically.

I have referred many families to HMS because of the positive experience we have had with our own son over the years,and we will CONTINUE to do so.

And Now, we are at a Crossroads....Because we HAVE all done such a great JOB, Luke has "his wings" and
he is ready to leave the HMS nest !!! Our Family will always honor you and what you have done to help Luke grow his wings, strengthen those wings and teach him to fly !!!

We are so blessed to have known you Miss Rehanna and Miss Lynne....Miss Teresa, Miss Millie, and Miss Jaime and all the other Amazing People at HMS that were integral in Luke's happiness and growth.
You all have a special place in our hearts forever!

Thank You, Thank You ....so very very much. We will keep you in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.


Sincerely,
Heather C.

As a certified Montessori teacher for 11 years, I am so happy to have finally found a wonderful environment to be a part of. I have not lived in SoCa for very long and have found many schools that call themselves Montessori and do not know the 1st thing about it! The staff is very dedicated and the children come first here! If you are truely interested in a Montessori education for your child, you should come and visit Heritage. The children are getting a well rounded education and learning to be loving and caring members of our community!

Thanks you guys soo much for the wonderful photos! It's soo great to see what fun our little ones are having at school! I really, really appreciate you taking time to take them and send them out. One of the MANY things that differentiate you from the "other" schools out there. Our daughter recently attended a birthday party of a friend she used to attend another Montessori School with. We couldn't stop raving about how happy we are with Heritage Montessori, its administration, and its teachers. I encouraged them to come observe Ms Millie's class and to see what a difference experienced teachers and administration makes. You guys do an amazing job and I feel so confident and relieved our daughter is in such a caring, nurturing, fun, and educational environment.

Thanks again!

Every day on the way home from school ?? I ask questions to learn about my son??s day. It is a strong ??pull? method. I ask in a variety of different ways to get to his response of:
??I played with Bella? or ??I did ac-ti-vi-ties!?
Today we walked out the door to:
??Mama! We had cookies, ice cream, pizza and A JUMP HOUSE, TOO! THIS WAS MY FAVORITE DAY ?? EVER!? ?
The whole way home, he couldn??t stop sharing how much fun he had playing bowling games and trying to knock down the pins. His voice kept getting louder and louder.
Thank you to you and your team for making everyday special and making today so much fun!

My son has attended Heritage Montessori since June 2009. He transferred from a school that wasn??t challenging him enough and that he would frequently cry about attending. Ever since attending Heritage Montessori, he has academically thrived and socially matured beyond what we could have imagined. It??s been almost a year and he is still excited about going to school everyday. His first teacher, Ms Millie, is so much fun. She is creative and a great Preschool teacher. The children in her class really love and respect her. He quickly advanced to another classroom and has learned to read, write and do mathematics, all before turning 5. We were so lucky to get Ms Yvonne. My son adores and respects her very much. She decorates the room to coincide with each month??s lessons and dedicates herself to each child. We feel he is way ahead of the other kids starting Kindergarten although he is beginning a ??traditional? school in September. We plan on continuing my son??s Heritage experience through summer camp. We can honestly say that if it weren??t for our original plan to send him to a Private Catholic School then we would definitely continue to go to Heritage. The teachers and staff are very friendly and always helpful. Before coming to Heritage, I was unaware of the Montessori teaching method and wasn??t sure how my son would adapt to it. Montessori has been a wonderful way to teach my son. Looking back, I feel silly that I was concerned at all about Montessori way of teaching. My son continuously surprises me with the things he learns, usually things I would not expect until maybe first or second grade. They plan wonderful parties, celebrations and field trips. They celebrate everything and everyone, which is not found in most schools, but is very refreshing. The parents of Heritage students are all very welcoming as well. We are all hard working parents trying to get the best education for our children. We have only wonderful things to say about this school. It has been an excellent basis for my son??s educational success. I know that Heritage will always hold a special place in my son??s heart and that we will always be grateful.

Thank you to everyone at Heritage Montessori for the experience.

The experience at Heritage Montessori has been nothing but positive. Not only has my son learned a lot educational wise but his stay at HMS has also helped him develop socially and behaviorally into a better person. I will definitely be returning to HMS for my next child.

Dear Ms. Rehanna, Heritage Montessori Teachers, and Staff Members,

We wanted to thank all of you for a school experience that we could have in no way imagined for our children. With your support, we feel so proud to have been able to give Dawson and Alana an education that has been filled with enrichment and creativity over the past four years. No words will ever properly express our thanks and gratefulness to all of you that make up Heritage Montessori School and we will always remember the time and effort that went into all that you have done.
Ms. Rehanna never ceased to amaze us with her ingenuity and thoughtfulness for each student, her class, our community, and other global issues. She has raised our expectations regarding what we should all require of our children's education. Ms. Rehanna, thank you for caring, you will be truly missed!
We also want to thank all of the parents who made the years at Heritage memorable. You should all be proud of your children, it has been a pleasure sharing our past school years with all of you!

Sincerely,
The Haynes Family

Dear HMS Teachers and Staffs,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for Pat. I am deeply sorry that she has to leave HMS due to our relocation. I am so surprised in Pat's growth and achievement at the school from a girl who barely could read or not even write each letter well to be a very capable reader and writer at the end of one school year. Her math skills are way over my expectations. I can't believe all of this can happen in only 1 year. In addition, she always wants to go to school everyday and always has a great time at school. She has made several wonderful friends as well.

HMS has teachers who sincerely care for students from their hearts with challenging curriculum. The school also has great administrative staff who pay attention to requests and have been very helpful to parents. With this great team work, I strongly believe that HMS will always be an excellent school. The curriculum not only focuses on academics, but also includes several extra activities and important skill development.

I strongly recommend HMS to all of the parents who are looking for a school with excellent academics and overall development of children. I visited almost all of the private schools in the area. When I first came to visit HMS, I checked the quality of the school by looking at the materials, classroom and importantly by talking to current students. I noticed the quality of HMS right away when I talked to some of the students and looked at their worksheets. Until now, it is confirmed that I have made the right decision to select this school for my daughter.

Again, thank you and wish all the best to everyone at HMS,

Dee

We are so happy that we made the choice to have our son Luke attend Heritage Montessori beginning the summer of 2007. Teachers such as Miss Theresa and Miss Lorraine are so warm and caring for the young ones in Class 1 when they first begin and Miss Millie in Class 2 is so great with the kids as well and very creative. Luke loved going to class every day and always had fun experiences to share with us when he came home. We also noticed a huge increase in his enjoyment and interest in learning more when he moved up to Miss Mano??s Class 3. After school he comes home and continues to pretend he??s in school and does more work and arts and crafts on his own every night.

Miss Lynne is wonderful with all the energy and ideas she puts into the overall school with all of the activities and special programs. This school really does care about making this experience for the children (and the parents) the best that it can be. Heritage is always looking out for the best interest of the children, even down to the food they eat everyday for lunch and snack. In addition to all the staff that I have mentioned, there are many other assistants who are also just as equally committed, caring and wonderful.

And last but not least, the school is beautiful inside and out and absolutely spotless and organized. We love this school! It??s sad that Luke is moving on to another school, but it??s really bittersweet since his 2 year old brother will be starting very soon this summer.

Dear Heritage,
My pre-school year experience has been a time for learning, growing and having lots of fun every step of the way. I made beautiful friendships that I will always treasure and have received the support of staff that is attentive, caring and supportive (like Ms. Shalane). I am proud to be a student at Heritage Montessori School and I am honored to have had my first educational experience with a teacher as amazing as Ms. Millie!
Love,
Abraham

Dear Lynne and the Heritage Family,

We are so pleased to have been part of the Heritage Montessori family the last 2 years. It was such a big move for us in 2007 to leave our home, our schools, our city and move to Huntington Beach. I know that Arden was struggling at only 4 years old with the idea of leaving everything that he knew from his friends and classes to his own bedroom! It was a big transition for all of us!

When I met with you and expressed our concerns for Arden and his needs as a 4 year old boy with his own idiosyncrasies, you met us with open arms and provided us all the reassurances we were looking for. You??ve lived up to them all and then some! I know at the time that you were booked and with a waiting list to get in. It was a huge relief to us that you were able to find a spot for Arden and bring him into your school.

Over the past 2 years, we have watched Arden go from a concerned baby boy to a confident, social, skilled and intelligent young boy. I am amazed at the skills he has learned at his age and impressed with the teaching style at Heritage, adapting to the abilities of the child while nurturing their very best. Having been through this once before with my older daughter in the public school, I can see the difference in the education the two received. If fact, when I was interviewing teachers at the local public school before choosing whether to keep Arden with Heritage for Kindergarten or move to the public school, I showed the teachers examples of the work he was doing upon ending his pre-K year. They were astonished at the level he was at with Heritage Montessori!

We have established such wonderful friendships and attachments over these couple years at Heritage Montessori and it comes from the quality of the people you attract to your school. We look forward to maintaining those friendships but will miss you all terribly.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!!

Dawn, Robert, and Arden?..big sister Arianne too! ?

Lynne--

I am always so impressed by how you handle things!

I appreciate your efforts, time, and listening ear. You are amazing at your job and I am so happy with all the opportunity Heritage provides Blake and Chase. I would also like to let you know (this will not be news to you!) that your teachers are PHENOMENAL! I notice the love and support they show ALL students daily.

I am continually impressed with the academic rigor and skill level of the students. I am also continually impressed by the cleanliness of the school, the engaging environment, and excellent parent communication HMS provides. I am so grateful my children attend Heritage and I know that you and the team do everything within your power to provide the highest learning standards. The investment in Blake and Chase's education is priceless.


Thank you for your EXCEPTIONAL service to us!

I am writing this short note to recommend Heritage Montessori School. My son Kendall attended the school for five years and proudly graduated from the 4th grade!

I believe that he really benefited from the small class size and individual attention he received. Additionally, Kendall was not a native English speaker when he entered Heritage. His English skills improved due to the excellent teaching staff and enriched environment!

Best Regards,
David Harris

Farewell to Heritage Montessori

Entrusting ??strangers? with the care of our son was an extremely difficult decision until we visited Heritage Montessori School.

It all began in Ms. Teresa??s class; Tyson was only 2 years old. The secure loving environment Class 1 offered was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you! Ms. Teresa. Next came the move to Ms. Millie??s class where Tyson blossomed not only academically but socially by learning about respect, responsibility and being independent. Thank you! Ms. Millie. Finally came the big move upstairs to Ms. Manos?? class where lessons not only focused on reading, writing, and math but included science, geography, art and Spanish. This was not the ??kindergarten? we experienced as children. Thank you! Ms. Mano and Ms Victoria. Through it all we??ve had the fortune to work with Ms. Lynn. Thank you for being so professional, organized and approachable.

While we are melancholic over our decision to leave Heritage we are filled with gratitude for the positive school experiences which have transformed Tyson into a curious and enthusiastic learner who values honesty and respect. As parents we could not have ask for more.

Thank You,
Zoila & David Finch

Cole has been a Heritage Montessori student for the last two years. His two older siblings also attended Heritage and were well prepared for elementary school. Cole has thrived in the caring and creative environment that Heritage provides every day. His love of learning and delight in new experiences has been nurtured by the Heritage staff in preschool and kindergarten. What more can you ask for when your child wants to go to school everyday!

Our daughter, Brenna, has been with Heritage Montessori since she was two, due to an unexpected change in our day care arrangement. It is the best thing that could have happened to all of us!

We have seen her grow and thrive and LEARN at Heritage more than she would have in a traditional day care or preschool environment.

Her teachers and staff have been nothing but caring, compassionate and nurturing during her 3 years at Heritage and we will miss every one of them. Brenna has made friends and learned important social and learning skills that will stay with her always. We believe her time at Heritage will be the solid educational foundation that will take her through elementary, middle, high school and ultimately college, if not farther.

Sincerely,
Rina Jacobson

We want to share our thought about HMS with other prospective parents:

We are very pleased and proud with these accomplishments that our daughter, Vivian Nguyen, has achieved while attending at HMS. We are very happy that we have made a right choice by sending our daughter to this school. We feel very secure and ??peace of mine? when drop off our daughter in the morning to go to work because we know that she is in a safe environment where she can learn about personal developments from these experienced, and caring teachers and well behaved kids in her class. We strongly believe that these valuable lessons that Vivian has learned from HMS will help her a lot in her future. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Lynn, Ms. Rehanna, Ms. Teresa, Ms. Lorraine, Ms. Millie, Ms. Mano, and Ms. Victoria for their great works.

Our daughter's preschool and kindergarten experiences at Heritage Montessori have exceeded my expectations. Our whole family has been so impressed with the school's on-going communication with parents, the weekly photos sent through email, the extra-curricular lessons offered, hands-on math and science curriculum, Spanish lessons in class, exciting and educational field trips, guest speakers/presenters and teachers (and administration) that are second to none. My daughter tells me daily that she loves school. She rarely wants to leave when I pick her up. She feels safe and cared about at Heritage and that means the world to us. We are leaving this year with a heavy heart, as we will miss our Heritage family. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a hands-on, individualized early childhood education for their child.

Dear Miss Rehanna,

On behalf of my husband Duane, my daughter Cierra and I, we would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude for the eight years that Cierra has spent at Heritage Montessori. She has received unparalleled education and support that has helped her grow into the person she is today. We will miss you and the staff. All of Cierra??s teachers have been wonderful, going all the way back to preschool with our lovely Miss Millie. I will miss my morning chats with Millie, the Winter Recitals, the projects and the parties.

As is all things in life our journey continues to the next chapter. We will always remember Heritage Montessori as a great school providing quality education with awesome teachers and staff. We have nothing but the fondest memories and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the dedication and service you have given to our child. We will forever be indebted to you for not only being a wonderful teacher, but also a great friend and mentor to our daughter.

Thank you from Lux Family.

We have been at Heritage Montessori for 6 wonderful years. Our experience through those six years has been great. Jack started Heritage in class 1, when he was two years old. We loved the nurturing and creative environment the teachers fostered in his class. Though initially Jack was weary of going to school, he soon grew to love it and became very attached to his teachers. Emily had the same wonderful experience when she started in class 1 a year later. Both Jack and Emily continued to grow and learn in Miss Millie??s class 2. Not only did the children love Miss Millie, under her guidance they were well prepared to start kindergarten when they each turned five. We were impressed with the encouraging learning environment at the pre-school level and appreciated how the teachers customized the learning techniques based on each child??s strengths and weaknesses. The children learned at their own pace and in their own way.

In the 3 years we have been in class 3 and 4 for kindergarten, first and second grades, Miss Rehanna has been there every step of the way to guide Jack. She has worked with him tirelessly to ensure that he thrived in school, and has gone out of her way to help him with his writing struggles. She even went above and beyond by ordering special pencils from Europe for him. Miss Rehanna sets the academic performance bar high for each of her students, then teaches each student the tools they need to succeed. Her classes have been academically challenging, creative, and holistic in the curriculum covered.

Emily flourished in kindergarten with Miss Mano??s high writing standards and great leadership. With Miss Mano??s guidance, Emily became a responsible and high academic performer. Miss Kristen continued this great learning and social environment with Emily in first grade. Emily has blossomed into a friendly, well-balanced little girl.

Our children have done some cleverly creative projects and have learned a great deal about so many different things. Outside of the normal curriculum, they have learned about gardening and where food comes from by keeping a class garden, the have learned to care for animals by taking care of the different class pets and the school pony, and they have learned about community service through various community outreach programs such as making Valentine care packages for people in the local retirement community. The school also has all kinds of fun activities throughout the year that the students look forward to such as the military reservist visit, trips to Tanaka Farms, and the wonderful Holiday performance program.

We have also enjoyed and appreciated all the efforts of the Heritage staff. We have great communication with the school and always know what is going on well in advance. Heritage has been a great school for our children and it is with much sadness that we move on to the next phase of our school experience. However, I know that my children will be academically prepared for this transition into a new school environment and we will always remember our years at Heritage with much fondness.

Sincerely,

I am withdrawing my child from this school this week, after one month of experience in the preschool program. Similar to the previous post, I also observed preschool teachers treating children horribly and parking them in front of movies. Ms. Lynne, the director, is the worst school director I have ever dealt with and should not be allowed to work in the general public, let alone an environment predominantly populated by young children. The classrooms are not sanitary, and in just one month we received exposure notices for rota virus and THREE for pink eye. Please keep your children away to avoid repeating others' mistakes.

Business Response:

HMS WON'T COMPROMISE HMS does have a strict policies on health and safety. We don't allow children with communicable disease to enter the school. If a child becomes ill at school we take immediate action by sending this child home and sending out exposure notices to all the parents. It's unfortunate when a school has rules and policies that are put in place for the safety of everyone that some people complain when following the rules doesn't suit them. What XXXX's mom fails to mention is that even though the exposure notice was sent out, not one new case developed at the school. One child was out with this virus and the parent thought it important to inform the school. The Director felt it prudent for me to inform all parents. Our school is very clean and beautiful. In fact, the school itself is an icon in the community. I think the negative comment was thrown in just for drama. I am the school's administrator and I invite anyone to contact me to schedule a tour and compare for yourself. Sincerely, Lynne

I have been a parent at this school for 3 years and recommend it enthusiastically. Caring staff, security, beautiful environments, attention to details, and my kid loves it. I can't ask for more. This is a one-of-a-kind school with an top-notch curriculum!
