We could not be happier. A year ago I put both of my children into this school. You can trust your precious children to the capable hands of Effie and her staff. They bring out the best in them academically, socially and artistically. The teachers of our 2 year old love, care for, nurture and engage the imagination and learning so well that she has taken off in her knowledge and confidence. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine what this early learning would do for her. The academics and social development provided in the older classroom is astonishing. Each child is encouraged to learn to the best of their ability. My four year old is doing work my older child didn’t do until first grade. Both of our girls look forward to school. They have good friends and lots of fun. The school has thoughtfully provided extra-curricular classes onsite – freeing our evenings from running around for dance, music and soccer lessons. Moreover, the multi-cultural environment has taught our girls to appreciate people, traditions and knowledge of other cultures. Our children are being fully prepared to meet the challenges of an ever-increasingly globalized world. They are able to readily adapt and enjoy different places, foods, and customs. We looked at over a dozen different places for our girls. And every morning, as we drive past other schools that are a wee bit closer, we smile with the knowledge that we chose the right school.
RHM has been a great experience for us. I was extremely impressed with the teachers and the curriculum that they follow. The classrooms are big and bright and well-maintained. This was important to me as a parent since we had been to other facilities nearby that had rooms half the size and more kids than they should be allowed to have. The Montessori materials are vast and keep the kids interested and focused. They have many teachers with a long tenure and all of them are equally precious. They provide lunch and snacks onsite too. Ms. Jayne and Ms. Vicki know all the parents and kids by name and are very involved in keeping their school top-notch. My 5 and half year old can read well above his grade level and the same goes for his math skills. Ms. Azra and Ms. Haleh are kind and encouraging and have nurtured his interest in science, geography, literature and other subjects. We are very pleased with his progress during his time here. My 20-month old has blossomed in more ways than one. She came to RHM a shy, quiet little girl and is now independent, clever and talks up a storm. I credit her wonderful, loving and patient teachers Ms. Cynthia and Ms. Janice for her change. As a working mom, it was a relief to find RHM, where I felt my kids would be safe and well cared for. We want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts and will miss all of you!

Our son has been going here since he was 6 weeks old (he's now 2 1/2) and we are about to bring our second son into their care as well, so obviously we are big fans. The staff continually looks for ways to enhance their communication and has always been nothing but friendly and warm to me and my family. I'm greeted every morning with a smile, and every afternoon I receive a warm goodbye. I feel like they are family and they truly care about me and my kids.Every teacher we have had has been wonderful, and each time we move to a new class, I think there's no way this teacher will be as great as the last and they are. My son has learned so much from his teachers. They have a really wonderful learning structure, but also get the chance to just be kids as well. The teachers are always very involved and work with you and your child. I've gotten some great advice and feedback on behaviors as well as celebrated things like potty training success. You will get what you put into it, so I try to take my time to talk to the teachers about my son. I love how diverse the community is, because I think it's such a benefit to the kids, and they all really love what they do.We have been so grateful for our family at PPMA, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great Montessori daycare.
This school provided an amazing atmosphere for my then 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son. Both of them have blossomed in the happy, calm and safe environment provided by the incredible staff. The teachers are always understanding, engaging, caring and more than capable of handling all sorts of situations. That's what makes them exceptional. Another important feature that makes this school great is that the classrooms are big, with many windows, which provide bright and happy spaces for children. I couldn't be more pleased with this school. My son was extremely shy and I have to credit the staff here for nudging him out of his shell in a manner that makes him shine. The only reason that I had to take my kids out of here was because we moved. I sure miss it!

We love Montessori New Beginnings Academy in Plano. It's a great school, great teachers and great staff. They care and love the students. This is a non-profit school so every penny goes back to the school. The programs at Montessori New Beginnings Academy emphasize work in practical life, independent and group learning, language using phonics, math using concrete objects, science, and geography. You will be amazed of all the materials they have as well as the huge outdoor learning they experiment every day.
