"We would like to express our deepest appreciation for your extraordinary state of teaching, capable of molding young minds starting with Viktor and ending with Vincent. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and care throughout all these years."

"I want to thank you for all that you did for Isaac over the past year. Palo Alto Montessori was such a great environment for him to learn and grow. I was not kidding when I said it was the only part of moving that we were sad about. We always felt that he was getting the best care and education while attending your school.  As a Montessori trained teacher I can tell that your program is top notch and I would have no problem recommending the school to area families. Thank you again for all that you do."

 "We want to thank you for taking care of our son Oto.  Oto learned and experienced many things.  Most importantly, he enjoyed school life and made many new friends at school.  Your school means the world to Oto.  You all mean so much to us.  We had a great time, thank you so much."

 "We have had a long and pleasurable association with your school.  Starting with our son Ashvin, a journey we started with a lot of trepidation and anxiety, and followed by Arushi, it has been filled with precious memories.  Everyday, as we dropped them off at school, we walked away with the consistent feeling of comfort that our kids were in able and caring hands.  The first year of preschool is a very important step for kids and parents, and we are very thankful that Ashvin and Arushi spent a huge share of their lives  within the cozy confines of your school.  We wish you all the best and are sure that many more kids will come through your school and leave with cherished memories just like Ashvin and Arushi did."

 “After extensive research for a suitable preschool program for our boy, John, Palo Alto Montessori was the answer to our search. One year later, John has blossomed into an extremely happy, imaginative, courteous, and mature child. We can not over praise this program and truly believe that it is a great service to our community. The consistency of the same staff with years of experience is an important factor. They are relaxed, loving and caring; yet disciplinary minded. The class size is perfect for John. It is home-like and structured, with plenty of wonderful outdoor and indoor space for children. Other impressive factors is their orderliness and cleanliness. Most important is their curriculum: It emphasizes creativity, playful learning of academic and social skills. Palo Alto Montessori is an unparalleled preschool with the highest standards for fostering creative and brilliant children.”

 “We moved to this area from Germany last year, where our daughter, Margaret, had been in daycare/preschool since the age of 3 months. After arriving, we spent 2 ½ months searching for a school for her. Finally, we found Palo Alto Montessori. After one year, she is a thriving, happy and well adjusted child. She loves coming to school to learn with her friends. My husband and I are both pleased by the excellent curriculum and structured environment. The open spaces, use of primary colors and continuity of the teaching faculty are so important to young children. Their natural curiosity and creativity are encouraged, and each child is permitted to learn at his or her own pace. Moreover, the teachers are always calm and soft-spoken, even at playtime, creating an atmosphere that is secure and reassuring for the children. When we enter the school, it is like entering an oasis of order and learning, where young minds are stimulated in the bright classrooms and under the shady trees. The classrooms and yards are neat and orderly and even the sandbox, is meticulously clean. We think that this school should be an example to other schools. Whenever someone asks about local schools for young children, Palo Alto Montessori is at the top of our list.
