Alpha Montessori

After months of searching for the right daycare for my daughter Ranjana, we were convinced that we had found the best when we walked into Alpha Montessori. As any other parent, we were relieved to find a peaceful place that is always immaculately clean and has big, open rooms. My baby started to go to Alpha Montessori since she was 14 months old. After the first few days of my baby attending school, we found that it’s not just that the place is clean. Ms. Rupali strives hard to keep the kids clean and smell fresh all the time. We have never seen my daughter with a dirty mouth or a dirty dress. Ms. Rupali has been a real blessing to us. We have never seen my daughter cry when we leave her at the day care. Not just that, she has learned a lot of good habits: she eats by herself, puts everything in the right place (without me telling her to do so), identifies flash cards already, tries to mimic and sing the ABC song and above everything, communicates very clearly as to what her needs are. Above all, when we go to work, we go very peacefully thinking that she is in a place that loves her so much. Last but not least, we had our 7 year old son attend the summer school and his comments were – “Mom, Ms. Rupali is really nice to Ranjana and she never raises her voice to her or any other kid. She talks to them nicely and all the kids listen too!” He is also ready to go there for the after school program now. We would highly recommend Alpha Montessori to any parent. Thanks for all you do Rupali and keep up the great work!

Our Team

The quality of any Montessori Program begins with a team of adults who are trained in the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. At Alpha Montessori, the Director, Program Consultant and Lead Teaching staff, all hold Montessori certificates and are assisted by qualified support persons.

The Director, Rupali Abdulpurkar, an AMS (American Montessori Society) teacher, who has over twelve years of classroom teaching experience at the early childhood and elementary levels in Montessori schools in Plano, Dallas, and other international schools in Stockholm, Sweden. She also holds degrees in Homeopathic Medical Sciences and a B.S. in Business from Bombay University, India.

She believes that giving children a Montessori education is one of the best ways to make a positive contribution to society. Ms. Rupali believes that the schools are her personal legacy. That’s why it’s especially important to her to be accessible for conversation with students, parents, faculty, and staff. She brings with her a love for learning and teaching both from a mother’s perspective and a teacher’s whose focus is on lifetime learning.

The Program Director, Lynda Landreth, has accumulated over thirty years of Montessori parenting, teaching and directing in schools in the Dallas and Carrollton area. Her collaboration with Alpha Montessori is to guide the staff in providing true Montessori concepts and classroom organization. She holds a BFA degree in Fine Arts and C.M.E. in Montessori Primary education. In addition to her work as the Program Director, she presents seminars for parents and teachers on how to build character values in children. The Character for Kids seminars are currently being conducted at universities in Russia, Ukraine, and Lithuania, as well as the United States, with the goal of training future teachers to be models of character and to give them an understanding of the way children acquire these values: Honesty – Trustworthiness – Respect – Responsibility – Courage – Caring – Fairness – Hope. Qualities Taught In Montessori Schools Around The World

The Lead Teachers are chosen for their love for young children and their Montessori training in the specific ages of their students. In addition to their Montessori certification, our teachers are giving additional training in child development, communication and other aspects of teaching which further their effectiveness in the classroom. Our teachers work closely with their assistants, sometimes Montessori interns, to give them a sense of the way children learn. Their cooperation in the classroom is a model for the students in social interaction as well as leadership.

With this team, Alpha Montessori strives to provide a strong foundation for the next generation of leaders, thinkers and creators. With self confidence and a sense of purpose, students are prepared to enter the next level of education. We want Alpha Montessori to be a place where each child can reach their fullest potential.
