Parents share their experience from: Amazing Beginnings Preschool


We have had the pleasure of using Amazing Beginnings Montessori Child Care & Preschool as our primary childcare provider for our daughters. In the time we’ve been associated with Amazing Beginnings, they have proven to be extremely competent; providing a very loving and caring atmosphere for our children and the other children they care for.

Amazing Beginnings provides us with verbal and written summaries of our youngest daughter’s daily activities, including her eating habits, how well she ate, nap times, and any other pertinent information. They are very conscientious to our kid’s moods and any special needs they may require. In addition, they have always been prompt and efficient in getting any necessary information to either Nikki or myself concerning their health or safety.

Our daughters have never shown any hesitation in staying at Amazing Beginnings, and we attribute this to the warm and friendly environment they encounter on a daily basis. We highly recommend Amazing Beginnings as a childcare provider for anyone who may be seeking the personal love and attention for their children that is not usually available in a larger daycare setting.

I’m so glad Amazing Beginnings opened their school in my community! I initially enrolled my 3 year old twins in a Montessori preschool (they are now 4 ½), which they did well in, but it closed after only a few months. They then attended a traditional preschool for a year. But for my ‘spirited’ children who had not before been in a daycare or other structured environment, it was very difficult and stressful for them to be in a rigid classroom. Now at Amazing Beginnings, they LOVE school and ask me often if they ‘get to’ go to school tomorrow!

The teachers have been wonderful and easy to talk to, understanding and accommodating. They are very positive with the children. The activities are age-appropriate; not expecting more than I believe a preschooler can comfortably follow through on. I love the flexibility the school offers too, with options for 2 or 3 days per week or half days. I didn’t want to enroll my children in a full time school at such a young age, and it is difficult to find part-time options that would allow me to work part time.

Academically, I can be sure that my kids are not bored. In their traditional school, my children already knew nearly all the of their numbers, shapes, colors etc. that the class was studying. Now I know they are challenged and are interested in trying to sound out words to read! One of my 4 year olds who previously did not enjoy coloring, now LOVES drawing and is able to patiently color inside lines of a coloring sheet only 3 months after beginning school here - a change I never expected. We are so pleased with Amazing Beginnings that we are considering keeping our twins in the program through Kindergarten.

When I first brought my daughter to Amazing beginnings she was very shy and was not used to being around other children. Within a couple weeks I noticed a tremendous change, I saw her come out of her shell. It meant a lot to me to see her discover who she was and be comfortable and confident in herself. She had no problems adjusting to kindergarten because of the preparations from Amazing Beginnings. I would highly recommend this school to others because of the results I have seen and how caring the staff is.

We have spent only seven months with Amazing Beginnings and I can say whole heartedly it was the right choice for Sami. All the teachers have helped polish and develop Sami into a ready to go kindergartener. She is excited for school to begin and is ready for her next adventure. Thank you goes for a program that offered so much variety that she never came home bored with her day. We are going to miss you guys.

My husband and I are very happy with the care our son receives at Amazing Beginning. Initially, we chose ABMS's Infant Room for the location, but we appreciate the level of communication we have with the staff and love how happy he is with his time at ABMS. We can see how much each of the teachers cares for him and the other children and it makes us confident that our son is at the right place.

We love Amazing Beginnings! After a difficult timefinding part-time childcare when I returned to work, and a not so-great experience with Lucas' first daycare, we were thrilled when we found Amazing Beginnings. Everyone we've met has been kind, warm and genuine. They truly seem to care for Lucas and he loves going to "school". We couldn't be more pleased with the care Lucas is getting.

My kids both attend and love Amazing Beginnings Montessori. They started about six months ago. They have adapted very well and have made lots of new friends. Amazing Beginnings Montessori provides an educational but fun atmosphere. My kids love to color and play outside which is still possible there! My 5 year old has read his first book, can color in the lines and can add two digital numbers together. My 3 year old has learned to spell her name, identify all the letters and is working on the sounds of each letter. It's awesome what they have achieved in a couple of months! The staff is very friendly and caring. They keep us up to date on how our kids are doing and what they are working on. Each week they bring home what they have done for the week and the kids are so proud to share that with us. They have made many milestones and I'm confident there will be many more.
