My child had been at Children's Garden Montessori since she was a Toddler. This year, she is in the lower elementary program. We love this school so much that we have been postponing moving to different city until my child graduates 3rd grade at this school. My daughter was very shy and sensitive, but the teachers in each class in this school, helped her find her strengths and become a more confident girl she is today. She is reading at 3rd grade level and is very excited about Math. We love the community service projects the Elementary students are involved in. This is a best find for us as parents and love to recommend this school strongly.

I am a parent of two children attending in Children's Garden. My experience with the school is very positive. The academic program is outstanding with special instructions on Language Development, Spelling, Reading and Writing. My older child is now 4 and is very advanced in Math at 2nd grade level. Teachers are very experienced and knowledgeable. The facility is huge, well lighted and spacious. The school was showcased as Model School in International Montessori Conference in Dallas in 2014.

Completely pleased with this school! I have a very busy preschooler, I'm a concerned and sometimes nervous parent yet this school has won me over completely! My priorities regarding my daughter going to school are: is she learning? is she safe? is she being taught manners and social skills? is she able to nap/rest? are they kind to her? is she happy? and I can say without a doubt that we are pleased and so is my daughter! We can pick any school in the area and I'm careful about who I recommend...I feel like more parents need to know about how wonderful this school is.

My son completed his KG in CGMA this year. The program offered by this school was outstanding. My son took his test in Language. The principal was amazed with his language skills. Facility is well maintained. Teachers are very friendly and dedicated. The Director of the school Mrs. Athirai is very committed and respond to our concern/suggestions at once. I would highly recommend any parent to visit CGMA, Plano.
