We ve had two of our children at Daffodils over the course of 8 years and during this time we have seen hardly any staff turnover, which is rare in preschools. Majority of Daffodils teachers have been with them since they opened over 9 years ago. All the lead teachers have degrees and training, and the staff is very loving. I have always found the school to be well staffed, they also have a full time float who helps in the classes. Daffodils was referred to us by another parent and we are grateful. The school has provided a caring, loving and nurturing environment for our children and given them a strong academic foundation. Majority of the enrollment is referral based, which is testament to the quality of the program. Sometimes a particular environment is not a good fit for a child, but it is unfair to submit reviews that are not based on facts. We have had a wonderful experience at Daffodils and would highly recommend it. Daffodils is a hidden gem!

My family loved this school. The only reason we aren't still enrolled is that we have relocated. I've seen the same teachers since my first child started there in 2008. My second child graduated this year. We loved this school because it's one of the few places that offered 2 and 3 day programs as well as half day programs. My kids did the 2 and 3 day programs and were reading by the age of 4. My oldest child was reading at a second grade level in kindergarten. The school is always clean. The teachers have been nice to my children and polite to my husband and me, as has the director. We enjoyed the Christmas and end of year performances and the art expos and presentation night gave us as parents, the opportunity to see what our children had accomplished. My kids enjoyed their yoga, and art classes as well as the fun bus sessions. Neither of my kids cried a single day at school and always came home smiling and happy. I would definitely recommend this school to parents who'd like to give their kids a well rounded education.

We did a lot of research for child's daycare and initially thought this would be the perfect fit for us. Unfortunately, although the school gets great ratings, there are a lot of issues we've seen since our child was enrolled. They have a high turnover of teachers in this school. They also rotate teachers from older classrooms to younger classroom and we think it's very disruptive to a child's routine. I've also noticed there are some communication/language barriers with some of the teachers at this school. It made it very difficult to understand how our child's day was. We've since moved to another Montessori in Allen and are very pleased with our decision to take our child out of Daffodils. Good luck parents! Like a few reviews before, do your research!!

We loved the school and the teachers. I am unaware of any teacher turnover in the two years that we attended the school. Our prior school seemed to have constant turnover. Our child has learned so much at this school. We wish we would have found it earlier so our older child would have had the same experience. We highly recommend this school to all.

My kids have gone to Daffodils since they were in the nursery, and I cannot imagine them being anywhere else. The teachers and staff at Daffodils are amazing, and my children have learned so much. I recommend this school to everyone...we could not be happier!

We have had a wonderful experience at Daffodils. We are strong believers in the Montessori philosphy and Daffodils lived up to all our expectations. Our youngest son just graduated and has been there since he was an infant. He has grown and learned so much there. The staff has been amazing from day one. They have truely opened his mind to the art of learning. The staff has treated him like they would their own child with much love and respect. The facility is always kept very clean too.

Being a very cautious and paranoid parent, I did EXTENSIVE research into several schools in the area before choosing Daffodils. It has an impeccable record. After spending months looking through parents' comments online , physically meeting several parents whose kids went there, and checking independent sources, this school came out a clear winner. I have a VERY difficult time trusting my child to anyone's care after a very bad and traumatic experience I had with an earlier care provider, and so for me to trust my child with Daffodils, that says and means A LOT. In fact, the care, warmth and meticulousness demonstrated by the staff and management has really helped me as a parent to trust again. The owners and management are always willing to go the extra mile, which shows in the consistency, quality and low turnover rate of their staff, the word of mouth business this school gets and the no. of satisfied parents I have met. Every parent deserves the peace of mind that I finally have found with Daffodils.

Please do you research into this school. We had a very serious issue happen regarding our son and seriously advise parents to find another center for your childcare needs. I would suggest looking into the state websites.

I couldn't be happier with the care,education and nurturing my boys receive at Daffodils Montessori Preschool. I was looking for a school with values and that would focus on their individuality and education rather than a "daycare" environment plus I needed to be able to afford the school:)!. My sons LOVE Daffodils Montessori Preschool. It is the best feeling in the world to see them so excited about going to school - I love hearing "mommie I had a great day:-)!"... "momme I did... and we did..." I feel very confident that they are getting great instruction in academics and learning essential life skills through the Montessori method. The staff is awesome..patient, sincere, gentle and their love of children shows everyday. I highly recommend Daffodils Montessori Preschool to anyone who is looking for a Montessori school for their children!

My husband and I were lucky enough to have his mother watch our son while we worked. After our son turned 2, we noticed that he sought the companionship of children his age as he was an only child. We decided to put him in a Montessori School when he turned 2 so he could play with children his age and attain the essential knowledge needed for his age group. We interviewed four schools and knew from the moment we stepped into Daffodils that it was the place for us! All of the staff was friendly and, most importantly, the kids were smiling. We didn t see much of that at the other schools. Our son is now in the Apple Room and LOVES his teachers, the classroom and his classmates. He runs into school with a smile on his face. The first thing he does when he gets to his classroom is give his teacher a big hug. As a parent, it makes you feel good knowing that you are leaving your child in good hands. I would definitely recommend Daffodils!
