All teachers and staffs and the Director and the President are awesome. My daughter has attended in this school for 3 years, and I never regret. Now she will be 1st grader and has to leave this school. I already miss Little Flower Montessori School, I'm not sure I can find kind of this much satisfied school for my daughter's future school. --Submitted by a parent
I am a former Certified Montessori Teacher of Little Flower Montessori School. The school is truly a Montessori School and provides a solid Montessori education. the parents have been very pleased with the teachers, the Director and the administration. The children learn a lot and participate in a wide variety of activities/projects. The children work on many projects that help the community and inspire creativity. Being a part of this school provides a sense of community like we are one family. The school mission of Little Flower Montessori School is to prepare each child, pre kindergarten through elementary to achieve his or her full moral, spiritual and intellectual potential in a safe and nurturing Montessori environment.. The large classrooms are not cramped and all the classrooms are well montessori equipped, there is a large play ground well secured and ample parking. Please go and take a tour of Little Flower Montessori school and you will see what sets us apart from all of the rest! Submitted by a former Teacher
Go here, only if you like unpredictable schedule and blindly follow reviews. After recent AUDIT, they ordered full-day student to come for half-day. The half day students' schedules were sent notice to come only 2 or 3 times a week. If you are working parent, you and your kid cannot accommodate such drastic schedule changes. TALK to real Parents who were given such notices. Don't get fooled by the "Reputation Clean-up" i.e high-rated reviews posted by so-called Parents or Ex-employees. No doubt that the Teacher are good. However to know the real face of Management, ask the Principal about recent AUDIT!
I am a parent and a former employee of Little Flower Montessori School. My child attended the school at age three, today I'm very happy and proud to say she is doing extremely well in public school, thanks to the strong educational foundation she received from this school. As an ex-employee i know for a fact that they are licensed from age 2 1/2 to 13 years old. As a teacher we were asked to keep the environment clean at all times, materials and shelves cleaned and disinfected once a week, we cleaned the tables and floors during the day even though a cleaning service cleaned every evening. The school never had any issues with the health department. As for fire exit, every classroom has one, no school will be given a license to operate if they dont have enough fire exits. The playgrounds is a large playground and there is a schedule classrooms are given in which can easily fit two classes. It is so disappointing to see the negative that is writen without any facts given. I am sure a parent who had their child educated in this school would not write such nonsense. Obviously this is an unhappy employee who left the school on not so good terms and is spredding false statements.
The school is tucked in a small lane close to warehouses and such facilities. We lived less than a mile from the school and had never noticed it till our son was old enough to start school. He started there and it took him a while to settle down. The teachers were very helpful in making him feel comfortable. He now loves them dearly. The focus is very much upon learning or I did say cramming ABCs, 123s,geography,science etc. It did make me feel proud that my three year old could say the names of all the continents. But the buck stops there. The school is overcrowded. There were 28 kids in my son's class with just two teachers. I realized that only when I was assembling the goodie bag for my son's birthday. That, I felt was way too much. Also the classrooms are sort of small and I cannot imagine how so many kids were indeed accommodated. Apart from that they have absolutely no indoor play area. Every available inch is used to accommodate a child! The bottom line therefore is the teachers are sweet, the curriculum is fine. But the school is overcrowded and after the recent incident I believe the management is greedy and does not deserve to be trusted with our children.
Little Flower is a very good school. My two daughter studied there. The teachers (Principal) there are excellent and very helpful. The quality and standard of education provided is high. I recommend Little Flower to all my friends
This school is excellent in academics.. And I am still putting my kid in this school next year also.. The only reason I am doing this is because I believe In this school and I think that's what is more important..
I am a parent and I totally support this school for everything.I am aware of the problem that occurred but I appreciate the quick action taken . I would always want my child to go there and I feel this place is very safe for my child. Talking about academics ,it is brilliant and that is what I expect for my child. I am confident that everything will be resolved very soon . I would always recommend this school .
This school is very good academic wise...its really brilliant. Every parent who reads a review...actually see how the school atmosphere is and how the school is education wise....and its tidiness.... I agree with the above...good at academics...neat and tidy in school.they teach kids to be independent.Just because something happened in school doesnt mean that school in a bad position.They bought a solution immediately. Its a safe place to enroll your kid....my son is doing great in there...keep it going Little flower...
My kid is studying in Little Flower Montessori School for 3+ years now. The school provides excellent academic curriculum and gives an opportunity for every child to shine well. The teachers are highly talented, very supportive and provides constant feedback. The school provides a very good atmosphere for kids to work together on various projects and gives a strong background for their overall development. I am proud that my child is studying in this school and highly recommend this school for every parent.
I have been ardent fan of Little Flower Montessori School since I moved to NJ almost seven years back. This school is one of the very few schools that believe in real values of "over all development of a child." Versatility makes one valuable is all walks of life. I do not believe in kids becoming book warms as they are free to choose their own passion and excel within it. I would highly recommend this school as I value in giving every kid a fair chance to exhibit their true self.
i agree to the latest post. they send out from the school in the february n very short period notice. only 3 days. how can i find the other school for those 3 days... this is too much.. we have to file the case for these
Worst thing to get from the school is notice for not to send the kind anymore. That too in the month of February, for 45 Students in the class. There is a limit for greediness, not overthrowing the security of the kids. There is only one door into school and if there is any untoward incident happens, it will be a several tragedy. I did asked the Principal and she said she is taking measures,. Don't know what they are . I don't recommend and just think if your kid has to find new school in Feb/Mar, what you will do?
I am satisfied and mostly pleased with the progress my child has made at this institution. Academics, independence and behavior - the focus is commendable. Class sizes are large and I wish they do something about it, but there is insane demand at the start of the school season where parents queue for hours before school application day starts. Calling the principal greedy and other name calling is unnecessary and unbecoming of other parents. Hopefully they don't disrespect the teachers or principal in front of their child. What example would that set? I hope the school facilities improve - I would rate the facilities average. Teachers and curriculum - above average.
Academic wis this school is good, but only 3 restrooms for 250 kids....cant believe it,they have increased the strength also, in a class there r 45 kids.
This school is very acedemically oriented. It is a safe and secure environment for kids to grow intellectually. It has built my kids confidence and general knowledge immensely .I am very happy with his progress. Its a wonderful school with great and caring teachers.
do not like the school curriculum...too less gross motor activites. There is lack of any extra-curricular activities. Only stress is on academics. I guess I should have checked other schools before putting my daughter there.
This school has given my son a wonderful academic foundation as well as it has build my kids confidence,independence and his general knowledge.I am very happy with his progress.Its a wonderful school with dedicated and caring teachers.
This school is very acedemically focus, have safe secure enviroenment for kids to grow.
It is a wonderful begining for my kids. My daughter went for two years and son is in kinder garten. Teachers are wonderful and I really appreciate the care they took so far in every aspect of the my kids' development process. - Vijaya (Miss M)
