Dear Miss Sandy and the entire American Montessori Staff:
Dear Miss Sandy:
To Whom It May Concern,
To Whom It May Concern:
When moving to the Twin Cities in 2008, my husband and I wanted to try a Montessori for our 16-month old son. We reviewed American Montessori online, interviewed Miss Sandy and visited the school before deciding to send our son there full time.
Our son is very active with lots of personality and the teachers at American Montessori show extraordinary patience and truly care about what he has to say and how he is developing. I am completely comfortable at work because I know that he is learning and happy at American Montessori.
He starts kindergarten in 2012 and is completely ready for school, a fact that we fully attribute to Miss Sandy and her staff. Every week we are amazed at the concepts he understands and how he is already writing, solving problems and expressing his emotions. We know what he has learned at American Montessori has set him up for success in Kindergarten and beyond.
In addition to the great staff and flexibility, we also truly appreciate the diversity of both the staff and children at American Montessori. Minnesota is not particularly diverse, but we love that our son's best friends are different races and nationalities. It is not a dynamic found in all daycare centers and one we value.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding American Montessori.
Sandy and all of the teachers at American Montessori,
Dear Miss Sandy & Staff,
We are writing to express our gratitude and appreciation for the care and education that Anthony has received from American Montessori.
Anthony's thirst for learning has been remarkable over the past few months. We have also noticed his confidence level has grown. He consistently impresses us with what he has learned from school. He constantly tells us about what he has learned such as planets, continents and so many others. His grandparents are equally impressed by his depth and breadth of knowledge as a three year old.
We are very impressed with your teaching ability, as well as with the amount of care and attention you've given our son. Anthony is very lucky to have attended American Montessori. We will miss you all.
Thank you to all the teachers.
Michael, Bunmi and Anthony S.
Dear Miss Sandy and Montessori Staff,
We feel so blessed to have found such a wonderful Montessori school for our son Dylan to attend. Dylan started when he was 2 and has continued to grow and learn so much as he makes his way through the Preschool program. We have been so fortunate to have the compassion of such great staff! As a parent, it is such a good feeling to know that your child is surrounded by such great role models at school. He has really enjoyed developing a relationship with all of the staff at American Montessori. He has had such a great start to his education by attending American Montessori. Keep up the great work! You all make such a difference in so many children's lives. We can't thank all of you enough for your dedication to helping our children prepare for their future in learning and growing. We must cherish these special years! A special thank you to Miss Angie, Miss Theresa, Miss Jan, Miss Sheri, Miss Kris and Miss Zulekha. You are all amazing teachers!

Dear Caring Mothers & Fathers;
As a mother of my one & only child, I want nothing but the best for her.
As a parent, it can be so stressful to find a place you trust and feel comfortable with to leave your child all day. The worst is when you find a place & not long after, your child begs not to go back. I've been there & it broke my heart to see the tears in her little eyes.
When I started looking for a new place, I did my research & I prayed a lot.
I was very impressed with what American Montessori offered at a cost that was reasonable. The visit to the school was so amazing! The school is beautiful, the educational tools are top of the line, the teachers are wonderful and the children are all so well behaved with this eager to learn. When I met the owner, Miss Sandy, & listen to the passion in her voice of providing a place where children (not to mention her own) can grow and learn, I knew this was the place.
Our daughter, Vegas, is in Miss Jan's Pre-K class. Miss Jan is just the sweetest, kindness lady. I love how she is very patient with the children & how she takes the time to really teach them. The children just adore her. When its time for parent conferences, Miss Jan really put a lot of work & effort into her evaluation of each child. It was nice knowing how Vegas was developing & given great feedback on how to continue working with her at home.
There are many other teachers & assistants there that we know as well. They have all been amazing. Our daughter looks forward to each day & comes home talking about her teachers & friends. She is so happy & I can't thank this school enough for that.
Vegas will be attending Kindergarten here & we are so excited for her.
This school truly is wonderful stepping stone for every young mind eager to explore the world & every parent wanting nothing but the best for them.

Dear Miss Sandy,
We sure are grateful for the wonderful education that you have provided our children for the past 6 years.
Dear Miss Sandy & American Montessori,
We have so appreciated the care and instruction my daughter has received from American Montessori staff, she began attending 3 years ago as a very shy, reserved girl, she has come out of her shell and now displays a level of confidence that will serve her well as she moves into new academic social settings. Of course we have loved watching her excitement for learning as she begun to read and write. She has made good friends and memories along the way. Thanks again for all your work with her.
Dear Miss Sandy
We have been very happy and impressed with the care and instruction given to our son Ashwin at the 2.5 years he was at American Montessori. When Ashwin joined American Montessori, he was very shy and hardly spoke to anybody. Now, he is very social, interacts well with children, and has gained a lot of self-confidence. He also knows his numbers, alphabets, can read beginner books, and knows basic Spanish. There has been a significant positive change in him in all aspects. And we attribute a lot of that to his time at American Montessori. We are sad to see it yet, but we know that Ashwin is now prepared for his next school experience. We highly support the program at American Montessori and recommend it to parents. We can't say enough good things about the teachers and the overall atmosphere at the school. Heartfelt thank you to everyone - Ms.Sandy, Ms.Jan, Ms.Lindsay, Ms.Melissa, Ms.Zulekha, and Mr.Jim.
Dear Miss Sandy and Staff,
I wanted to express my appreciation for the years that you and your teachers cared for and educated both my daughters. I found American Montessori to be an exceptional learning facility in which everyone who works with the children really cares about the child's well being, educationally as well as emotionally. I can honestly say yours and your staff primary focus is truly children. I wish you much continued success and I can never repay you, but if I can be of any assistance in anyway, please do not hesitate to ask. You have all given my daughters such a great start in life, there are many good schools in Minnesota, but I can say without reservation there are none better than American Montessori.
To all the teachers at American Montessori,
Thank you so much for teaching, training, caring for and loving our children. You were the first line of education for the rest of their lives and they will forever benefit from all that you have done.
