We initially send our daughter to LFMS because we had heard good things about the teachers and in was in our neighborhood. Unfortunately in the last year, the classroom size has increased and there is a lack of supervision in the classroom. The teacher is okay, although she seems trained only in the Montessori manner and doesn't have an early education degree. However, there is only one of her for 27 kids. Her aide has 40 hour childcare certification and very litle teaching experience. The principal is excellent- unfortunately she is not in the classroom enough (understandable based on her role). My overall analysis is that it was a okay little pre-school who has extended into toddlers and 1st - 6th grade (all in the same small building) and they have lost focus on what was their strengths. For the money there are other schools with better teachers and lower ratios.
I am so grateful to be apart of LIttle Flower Montessori School. The staff are concerned and dedicated to each every child. Accredited and true to Montessori methods, the learning potential of each child is accelerated through their own interest and observation of the environment around them.
My two kids just completed their first year at Little Flower Montessori. My husband and I cannot be happier with the way in which our children have thrived and developed during this initial year. The staff is amazing and always willing to go the extra mile for the kids. My children have had a great first year and have learned so much. I did much research on other private schools in the area and am very happy that we decided to send our kids to LFM. Truly an exceptional school
Never could I imagine how wonderfully our girls would THRIVE in this amazing environment. I couldn't be more thrilled with the school, teachers and staff. Knowing what I now know and have experienced in a true Montessori environment has sold me on this type of education for life. My only regret is that I didn't go there as a child! Top level education combined with nurturing and practical life events as part of their daily routine have made quite an impression on our young daughters.
My child entered the elementary level classroom this year, having had Montessori education at a much larger school. The experience has been amazing. The teachers and staff truly embody the whole child approach to education and their genuine respect for each child is reflected in everything that they do. We are fortunate to have found this amazing school.
This is an outstanding school with some of the most committed teachers I have ever met. The new Head of School this year has brought great life to an already vibrant school. My four children are thriving at this fantastic school!
Bravo Little Flower Montessori. An asset to the Fort Lauderdale, Broward community and inspiration to educators in South Florida. My children have atttended since the age of 3 and have had the oppurtuinity to experience conventional education. The expanse of education provided by Little Flower is fantastic.
My daughter has been at Little Flower for five years now. I love this school. My older children attended very good traditional private schools which were fine but Little Flower is amazing. It is truly a community that works together for the children to succeed. Teachers are all very committed to the success of the children and development of a love of learning, self confidence and a live well lived.
Great school! Children learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities! leading to concentration, motivation, self discipline, and a love of learning!
Best decision we ever made for our family!!! We could not be happier with the teachers as well as the other families who attend LFM.
This school shines!!!! Staff is excellent!! Children are taught in a warm, loving enviornment. Teachers go in depth with each child and give them freedom to move at their pace with structure. Teachers focus deeply on each child to form a well rounded child. Academically strong, morally and socially concious students. Self confidence soars at Litttle Flower!! If you want the best for your child then LFM is your school.
Beautiful school, wonderful teachers, and very supportive parent community. I would highly recommend this school.
Little Flower is a perfect combination of education in a nurturing environment. The teachers and staff are committed to the children, learning and respecting each individual personality and needs. To sit and observe in one of the classes is always an experience that confirms I made the best choice for my son. Parents of LFM are involved and enhance what the school already offers. If Montessori teaching is an atmosphere your child thrives in then Little Flower is a top choice. My son has been in LFM for the last 2 1/2 years and has a love for learning and new challenges that you don't see often in today's children who sometimes get frustrated and discouraged in a traditional school atmosphere. I am very excited for his future in education as his beginning path is right on target.
Little Flower is an amazing preschool! When I first observed the classroom, I couldn't believe how quiet and peaceful it was in there. Because Montessori combines pre-k 3, pre-k4, and kindergarten into one classroom, the younger children observe and emulate the older ones. My children could not wait to learn to read because they wanted to do what the big kids were doing. To this day they love reading. The teachers are amazing. You are allowed to observe any time you want, and I never once heard a teacher raise their voice, which is a lot more than I can say for the public elementary school my kids now attend. The lessons at Little Flower build on each other and instill a love of learning. Respect for self and others is very effectively taught, as is neatness. Every child learns to push in their chair, clean up their lesson, and roll up their rug when they are finished. Little Flower also has an elementary school which goes through 6th grade, which I wish was true of public elementary. The teachers are amazing and the elementary school kids are like a family. It is a great school and I am so glad my kids were able to attend the preschool.
We sent our twins here and it was a terrific learning experience for both the parents and children. I cannot recommend it more!
Miss Kim and Miss LIsa have made their life passion to help children love to learn. Great job.
This wonderful little school allows individual-paced learning, teaches students to respect everyone and help others, and fosters independence and self motivation.
Both of my children went to Little Flower back in the day when it was owned and operated by 'Miss Edie' Cronin. Now, it is directed by Edie's daughter, 'Miss Mary' and it has always been a wonderful school in every respect. We miss it.
