The staff is honestly and very organized. I get a detailed report ever day to see how my son did. How many times he used the bathroom. How much he ate. And if he was happy and got along with everyone..

My son went here for his first year in the toddler class. I loved his teacher. They stick with the Montessori curriculum. Helped me potty train. Helped get him used to being around other children and the schools staff are like friends and family. That's the vibe and feel this school has. Ms. Carol the schools administrator is so involved and I can tell has a true passion for her work. This school is not stuck up judgemental or snobby. I felt very comfortable trusting them with my son. I will have him enrolled next year for primary as well. Very pleased.

My kids spent 3 yrs at the Giving Tree Montessori. This is a great school. The teachers & administration care about the kids. Ms. Carol, who runs the school is just amazing. She ensures the school is a loving, safe environment that definitely promotes learning. I am amazed at what my kids have learned. My daughter did 2 yrs preschool and just finished her K year, all with Ms. Maria. My son did 1 yr in the toddler rm and 2 yrs with Ms.Sally in preschool. The two teachers have entirely different personalities, but both were GOOD teachers & a GREAT fit for my kids. Ms. Dora in the aftercare rm was so patient with the kids. She's the kind of person all working parents would want their kids with. She kept the rm running like an extension of the preschool with a relaxed, fun atmosphere. I am heartbroken that the school no longer goes beyond the K grade as I would have loved for my son to stay there to get the same K my daughter got. The location is great if you live in East....but I know one parent who drove from Southfield everyday. Its worth the commute. I'm sad to leave but happy about the great educational foundation the school provided. This is a MUST see school, check it out.

Giving Tree Montessori is a great school! I am so happy with the Montessori approach - the kids are guided with a firm & fair hand. Any concerns I had about Montessori being too unstructured were quickly erased after seeing the results. The teachers are very experienced and are fantastic with the kids. My daughter has spent 2 years at their pre-school and is about to start kindergarten. She can't wait to go back to school. She is starting to sound out words to read, she writes well, does basic math, is starting to speak Spanish and knows more than I do about several areas of science! All of this before she even starts kindergarten! The school is located at the intersection of Rivard & Mack bordering Grosse Pointe, but I wonder if some people don't realize it is in the Grosse Pointe area due to its Detroit address? Regardless, I consistently run into people who tell me their kids went to Giving Tree 5, 10, or 20 years ago and they all still have fantastic things to say about the school!

Such a great hidden gem. My daughter is learning so much in the short time she's been a student at The Giving Tree Montessori. The teachers and staff are outstanding. The open door policy is great. I am able to watch the interaction in the classroom inconspicuously. She loves going to school each and every day and I am thankful for that.

We could not be happier with the level of attention and stimulation our child has received at Giving Tree. The teachers are firm but gentle, consistent, and cooperative. The parents at the school seem very involved and we would recommend it to anyone who asks.
