Parent Testimonials

 

Dear MVM parents,

We have had our boys attending MVM since the 2006-2007 academic year. After observations of 4 local public schools, we decided to keep both our sons at MVM for their kindergarten year. We feel that last foundation year is so important to their academic success. The development that happens in that year is so amazing. The program and attention our little ones receive at MVM is unmatched at any other school. We doubt our boys would have grown, both academically and emotionally, as much as they had had they attended Kindergarten elsewhere.

This year at my older sons school, our MVM Alumni nearly swept the academic awards ceremony in multiple grade levels. At the end of the ceremony as we were congratulating our students for their success a funny thing happened. We parents realized that we all came from the MVM family and at the same time spontaneously shouted “Go MVM!”

We understand it can be economically challenging, but are so grateful that our children had the opportunity to attend MVM. We highly recommend having your students continue their studies at MVM through their Kindergarten year, at a minimum.

Best regards,

Our 3 1/2 yr old attended MVM for 2 1/2 yrs. I can without a doubt say it is great environment for any child of any age. He has grown into such a remarkable lil boy, thanks to the caring and nurturing from his teachers. I am especially pleased with the new management and the positive changes that have been made. My son never complained about going to school and would request to go on the weekends as well:). I am very pleased with his level of independency and skills set. MVM has prepared him to be able to go to the next level.  Hats off to the staff, Ms. Melissa, Monica, Minnie, Kristina, Jessie, Theresa and Amanda. Also Ms. Madoka (the director) who was always very helpful. We would recommend this school if you are looking for positive results with your child.

We have had my 14 month son at MVM since he was 10 months. I looked at many different day care options for over a month but nothing compared to MVM. My son immediately felt comfortable and made fast friends with the other kids in his class. He adores his teachers Ms. Kara and Ms. Jessie! They definitely have a special connection with each child! He has grown and developed so much since he started. He is speaking all the time, signing like a champ and socially flourishing! Can’t say enough great things about MVM! So grateful I can leave my favorite little guy in place he loves, makes a working mom feel at ease!

My 16 month old has been attending MV Montessori for almost two months. It did not take her long to adjust. They were great about letting me know how she was doing for the first couple weeks. I was a very worried mama. She loves her teachers (Ms. Kara, Ms. Kristina, Ms. Melissa & Ms. Jessie) and looks forward to seeing them. She reaches out for Ms. Kara when I drop her off. The infant room is very nice, clean and full of activities. She loves when Ms. Kara reads stories. I’m glad we decided to enroll her!

I would like to highly recommend the Mission Viejo Montessori (MVM) school. All three of my children went there and at all of the age groups available at the daycare starting from the beginners to first grade. We were very happy and pleased with the staff and the way they taught and took care for our children. My kids loved going there and we were always surprised by all of the subjects that our kids were exposed too and the encouragement for curiosity that they received from the staff. I felt the staff really cares and encourages their positive behavior and development. My kids enjoyed the music and Drama class as well as exploring nature and learning new things every day. We all had a great experience at MVM. The staff is wonderful and hard working and I am confident that you will feel the same should your kids go there.

For all of you considering the Mission Viejo Montessori. We had our daughter at the MVM from the time she was 8 weeks old to a little over a year old. We loved the MVM, absolutely loved it. From the facility, to the staff, the whole experience was fantastic.

Let me give you an example. Our daughter had GURD and required medication frequently and a lot of TLC when it came to feeding. The staff never gave us any grief and made sure our daughter was taken care of. They were always on top of the issue and made sure they were doing the right things to take care of her for us.

We had to move unfortunately in November of 2011. While we love our new house and the area we live in we really miss the MVM. We tried our daughter at a kinder care and the experience was disastrous. Their baby room was a fifth the size of the MVM’s baby room and the staff made us feel like our daughter was a number on a spreadsheet not a member of their family like our little girl was at the MVM.

My closing thoughts are that they always went above and beyond to over communicate information to my wife who was a new working mother. It gave us both piece of mind that our little angel was in good hands.

Thanks and best regards,

Our older child attended for 4 years and our younger child is still attending the school after 2 years. This school has strong academics, excellent caring teachers and a friendly atmosphere. Our older child gained a strong foundation at MVM and is ahead in his class at the public school. We are very happy with the school and would recommend it.

Mission Viejo Montessori is a fabulous school! It is a serious learning environment, but they also have fun – and the teachers work hard to make learning fun. It is a nurturing and well-organized environment where communication is open and frequent, and the teachers are caring and trustworthy. The school provides continuing education and workshops for the staff, which facilitates things staying fresh and shows that they care about the quality of education. They use the Montessori methodologies and Montessori materials to teach, are the teachers are always coming up with new ways of reaching the students. They employ discipline methods that guide the little ones in the right direction, and they provide support and information to parents as well. They are also very conscious about nutrition, which I have found to be uncommon in most schools. My son loves going to school, and I feel great bringing him to this fine facility every day. I highly recommend Mission Viejo Montessori to anyone who wants more for their kids than the typical daycare environment. It is never too early to start learning, and this school shows this every day!

I graduated with a degree in education and I taught both elementary and preschool. Since I became a stay at home to raise both my boys, I enrolled both my children at MVM with a critical eye but and am incredibly grateful now for the awesome staff and wonderful learning environment. Not only do my boys love school but they are always coming home saying things like “Mommy, you’re wearing a primary color today. I’m wearing a secondary color”. They sing new songs learned in the car ride home. They go on wonderful field trips. This is a tight knit school where all the teachers know your child’s name and they truly care about the well being of your child. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

My son went to this school for several years and now my daughter has started there too. We love this school! My son has done so well in public school after graduating from Mission Viejo Montessori. He is always at the top of his class! We are looking forward to more years of excellent teaching and the warm family environment. We love all the social events and especially love the Spanish, music & drama classes that they teach at no extra cost. Saves us so much time not having to run around to special classes after school! We highly recommend this school!!

This school provides the best care/academic balance. My two kids love going to school and adore their teachers. They started as early as 16 months and they adapted very quickly. It has a great after school program which provides great relief to a working parent.
