Montessori Childrens House-Plano-Texas
AboutMontessori Children's House is a family-owned and privately-operated facility. Founded by Effie Saifi, an educator with over 25 years of experience, she has worked with children, both as a teacher and a counselor. Mrs. Saifi has a Bachelor of Arts in Guidance Counseling and a Master's Degree in Educational Psychology. She holds a traditional Teaching Certificate. Mrs.Saifi is also AMS Montessori certified.Our program is designed to develop a child socially, physically, and emotionally. Thus, learning to be kind and courteous is as important as learning to read, write or count. Montessori process is not just an education, it's an aid to life. The goal of the Montessori education is to link the child's experiences in the world with the information that is presented in the classroom. An integrated approach to education helps a child order and classify the world so that it is easier for them to understand and appreciate it. We take great pride in the work that we do here at Montessori Children's House. We enjoy sharing our vision, so that you as parents, can experience the same satisfaction that we do, as we work toward accomplishing our goal.
We could not be happier. A year ago I put both of my children into this school. You can trust your precious children to the capable hands of Effie and her staff. They bring out the best in them academically, socially and artistically.
The teachers of our 2 year old love, care for, nurture and engage the imagination and learning so well that she has taken off in her knowledge and confidence. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine what this early learning would do for her. The academics and social development provided in the older classroom is astonishing. Each child is encouraged to learn to the best of their ability. My four year old is doing work my older child didn't do until first grade.
Both of our girls look forward to school. They have good friends and lots of fun. The school has thoughtfully provided extra-curricular classes onsite - freeing our evenings from running around for dance, music and soccer lessons.
Moreover, the multi-cultural environment has taught our girls to appreciate people, traditions and knowledge of other cultures. Our children are being fully prepared to meet the challenges of an ever-increasingly globalized world. They are able to readily adapt and enjoy different places, foods, and customs.
We looked at over a dozen different places for our girls. And every morning, as we drive past other schools that are a wee bit closer, we smile with the knowledge that we chose the right school.
