Hello My baby was 6 months old since she is going to Parker Montessori- Daisy room. As first time parents, it was a tough decision to send our child to daycare. We heard a lot about kids getting sick, not eating properly etc from our frds. We visited a lot of day cares before finalizing Parker Montessori. I think that has been one of the best decisions we have taken for our child. The teachers - Sunitha and Tess take care of all the infants very well and focus a lot on cleanliness. The administration is also really good. I can see that my child enjoys her day there and eats well. Thanks to the Staff and all the teachers.
I am usually not to indulge in superlatives and take the time to write reviews, however this educational institute has reached beyond our expectations and deserves for the community to know about it. Our son has entered the program as a two year old and is now well over four. We can't stop being amazed at the learning progress, discipline and positive changes we see in him every day. The kid loves to go to school and even if we were both home taking care of him full time time we couldn't have given him all he has assimilated getting his education from both Parker Montessori and us parents. The staff is amazing and they have worked with us in everyway to make us feel really comfortable having our son there. I strongly recommend it.
As I was getting ready to return to work and looking for someone to care for my three-month-old son, so many of the places that we toured left me heartbroken; small spaces with no natural light and worn-out toys. When I walked into Parker Montessori, it felt like coming home. Everything was open and light and beautiful. The infant room is a lovely space with large windows, wee furniture that is just right for the little ones, and beautiful toys in natural materials. My son has been with Parker Montessori for almost a year, and we have been delighted with our experience. His teachers clearly adore him and I've never hesitated to leave him in their care. When I go to pick him up, he is often having such a a good time with his teachers and his friends that he doesn't want to leave. My only complaint is that they're so far away from where we live, but that's hardly their fault. We certainly have closer child care, but the environment and attention at Parker Montessori make it worth the drive.
After moving to Parker, my wife and I had quite the time finding a daycare that we felt comfortable having our son (3.5 months old at the time) attend. He is now 6.5 months and has been in the infant room at Parker Montessori for the past couple of months, and we could not be happier. When touring the school and meeting the lead infant room teacher, Miss Sunita, we knew immediately that this was the school for our son. Aside from the Montessori curriculum, there is something different about this school/infant care. The teachers truly care about the children, which unfortunately did not always appear that way at a number of schools we considered. From talking with Miss Sunita on the tour and many times since then, it is extremely evident how much she simply loves babies and enjoys caring for them, and it shines through in the way she treats and interacts with them. Naturally, my wife and I expected to have a tough time leaving our first child at such a young age in someone else's care during the day, but we were very fortunate to have found Parker Montessori and the entire infant room team of Miss Sunita, Miss Tess, and Miss Tanya. Their desire to care and love our son and all of the children in the class makes it easy to drop him off every day and gives us a great sense of comfort. Clearly, I highly recommend Parker Montessori, and if you are looking for infant care I suggest taking a tour, spend time in the infant room to just observe, and engage in conversation with Miss Sunita. Her clear passion for caring for babies and fun and friendly demeanor with the infants and me played a big part in wanting our son to be in her class. We are very lucky to have found Miss Sunita and PM!
As many of the other reviews, we can't say enough good things about Parker Montessori. Our daughter is 4 and has been at Parker Montessori in Ms. Dee's class for the last year and a half. We have dozens of stories about the great teachers and staff but had to narrow it to a handful that have been most important for our family so that we could fit it into a review. Education: Our daughter turned 4 this summer, and she is writing and starting to read. We're reasonably well-educated, driven individuals, and we are constantly amazed at our daughter's vocabulary, facts about our country and the rest of the world, and her incredible independence and willingness to try new things. Not only is she learning traditional subjects, but she is also learning to care for others, how to socialize and work through issues, and how to respect the people around you (both your peers and adults). Everyone in the building loves the kids and knows them all individually. I'll talk about her teachers but everyone knows and cares about the kids, from Ms. Jamie at the front desk to Ms. Ruth-Ann who runs aftercare to Ms. Layla who teaches Spanish. Ms. Dee and Ms. Marcia: They are wonderful educators, and they love our child. They push her when appropriate and embrace her when she needs it. Ms. Dee calls anytime there is an "incident" in the classroom (yes, incidents happen with a room full of 3-6 year olds though they are rare at PMEI). She is always available to speak with parents and talk through changes in behavior or any issues. Beyond the basics, they are fun-loving, happy, thoughtful human beings. When they took the kids to Flat Acres Farm a few weeks ago, we looked over and there was Ms. Dee on the trampoline with the kids! They support them, they teach them, they are proud of each and everyone of them, and they love them like their own. Administration (Ms. Anitha and Ms. Beatrice): We went to tour Parker Montessori on a Thursday at a time when we were unhappy with our current child care and looking for a better option. When we went to look at the school, there wasn't a rush to move her, but just a few days later there was an incident at her current school that made us want to move her out immediately. At the time, PMEI was in the middle of a summer session, and the school year was starting again in a few weeks. In any normal circumstance, you would wait to enroll the child until the new school year started, but after seeing Parker Montessori, we wanted to move her there immediately. I went back to speak with Ms. Anitha on a Friday, and she moved mountains to enable our daughter to start the following Monday. Throughout our daughter's time at PMEI, Ms. Beatrice and Ms. Anitha have looked out for her and worked through decision-points with us. At an early age, our daughter no longer wanted / needed a long nap. Instead of getting frustrated with her for not sleeping at naptime, they came up with an alternative solution that would allow her to rest for shorter period of time. It required everyone to change processes a bit (including her teachers), and everyone was willing to accommodate the changes to do what was best for her. It seems small, but it required everyone to know and understand our daughter and care enough to do what was best for her. We can't say enough to recommend PMEI and only wish they had an option to attend beyond Kindergarten!
The Heart of Parker Montessori is EXCELLENCE. Not only is the staff and leadership of this "beacon of HOPE' representative of Academic rigor and excellence but one of generosity and love, inclusive of the community they serve. This past month adopting Palmer Elementary School in Denver giving to families in need we had a "Giving Tree" for top families in need. Parker Montessori partnered with us and gave above and beyond to bless these families in need. Thank you for your deep level commitment to ALL children and families reaching their highest potential. A bright example of wholistic education building a bright future for humanity.
My daughter loves school, her friends and her teachers! We love Parker Montessori :)
Just came back from Ms.Gina's parent education class at parker Montessori. It was really good. Got a lot of inputs which, I hope, will definitely going to help me as a parent. Thanks Ms.Gina and PMEI. Happy to be part of this family.
