We moved to Flower Mound a little over a month ago and choosing a school for my son was by far the hardest decision of our move. He just turned 5 years old and at the peak of his preschool education with a lot of pressure for the upcoming school year as he enters Kindergarten. Wonderland was the first of 8 schools that we toured and by far the best in the area! My husband and I were so thankful we toured Wonderland first and saw what the area truly had to offer our family. We have been more than happy about our choice and more importantly my son LOVES coming to school. He loves his teachers and surprisingly enough all the teachers greet him in the mornings, which I think is awesome that the school functions like a family where everyone knows everyone!
We have been at Wonderland for about a year now, and we are loving it! We had tried some other schools nearby to Wonderland, but ended up going with this one because of the education that it offers, being both fun for the child and educative. I have two kids in this school, and the amount that they have learnt is quite amazing!
My family was very skeptical about moving our two children from a day care setting to a structured school environment but we had heard great things about Montessori. Wonderland Montessori was the first school we toured simply because they were the only ones that allowed us to come in whenever we could, whereas the other Montessori schools we had to set up an appointment. We found this to be the first red flag with most other schools because if there were set times we could come to see the classes what was going on other times of the day where we were not allowed? With that said, our tour with Wonderland definitely set a very high standard as we visited other schools. Now that we have been at Wonderland for nearly a year, we can honestly say we have found a home away from home for our children! Our 4 year old has learned so much and is already reading at a 1st grade standard. My little girl is 9 months and we cannot say enough good things about her teachers! All of the teachers at Wonderland are very loving and caring. We are so glad to make the switch; it has been a great experience for our family!
