Our 4 year old has been coming to MNBA here for some time now, and from the first moment we walked in the door, we knew it was the right school for us!!! After researching and visiting 9 other schools, both Montessori and traditional preschools, this school stood out -- all the way from the director, teachers and assistants to the facility itself. It speaks volumes that the teacher turnover is almost nil and I know my son loves that everyone in the building knows his name! The summer 'camp' is fun and they bring in different and fun visitors for the kids. I remember there were 'scientists' and animals and musicians coming in.... I was a little jealous I couldn't participate myself. Now that regular school is back in full swing, I'm looking forward to seeing even how much more our son will grow this year. He surprises me everyday with what he's learned or can do. If you're looking for a nurturing, challenging (in a good way) and fun environment for your kids, this is it.

My kid is 4 year old now and we recently moved to this state. She is attending Montessori program from 2 years on wards in a different state. She can count till 1000 and can add/subtract 2 digit number and read pretty good (till blue words and blending sounds) . We were told every Friday kids would get their work home from school, and for the last 3 months of her school she just brings only scribblings and pen punched shapes, so I started to talk to her teacher and she say we are going slow and she is waiting on other teacher to come to start the program. Also i heard from my kid if she like to work on maps or math they are not providing . Montessori way is to let kids pick what they want to do and and to progress the skill as they learn. I see this failing in this school. I feel cheated. They have only 3 Montessori certified teachers and rest all of them drive on these 3. Management would just talk sweet to get kids enrolled with no value for the money. THIS IS A MONEY ORIENTED ORGANISATION WITH ABSOLUTELY NO VALUE . If you are kids are from actual Montessori school you will feel the difference during the 1st week of the school itself.

Montessori New Beginnings Academy is wonderful! We have two kids enrolled now and they love going to school. We researched many schools in the area and are so happy with our choice. The teachers and administration are very experienced and really care about the kids.

Montessori: New Beginnings Academy is, IMO, the top private school in North Texas for toddlers through kindergarten! The administration and faculty are top notch! My son LOVED it and still goes back to see his teachers!
