Frances Gonzalez

My husband and I had enrolled our son in a Montessori School at the age of 18 months. We were told that the Montessori program was excellent but little did we know that all Montessori Schools were NOT the same. We were not happy with the Montessori school he was attending so we carefully started interviewing multiple Montessori School Directors to find the best one in the Carrollton, Plano, and Frisco area. At the time we lived in Carrollton and did not mind commuting to Plano or Frisco if we found the right school for our son. After carefully interviewing multiple schools, our last stop was the Alpha Montessori in Plano. We met with Mrs. Rupali, the director and owner of the school. My husband and I were immediately impressed. She took us on a tour; we discussed the truly impressive curriculum. . She performed an evaluation on our son to see where he was in terms of development. The staff was fantastic and friendly. I loved that Mrs. Rupali (owner and director) did not have an office at the school. This is intentional as she does not care to sit behind a desk. She wants to be involved in every single area and program of the school. We had such a GREAT feeling about the school that we signed up our son immediately. It is now a year later since we enrolled our son and my husband and I are just as excited about the school as we were a year ago. The staff is still fantastic! My son's confidence level is sky high. He LOVES walking in every single day. As a matter of fact, he walks in and never looks back. It is such a great feeling to know that he is genuinely happy there. His grammar and speech have dramatically improved. His manners are just amazing. He has become so independent and his personality just shines. His teachers have spent individual time with him to "catch him up". What a phenomenal job they have done! He now corrects our grammar which we find extremely funny! We knew that we were NOT happy with his progress at his old Montessori school (thank God, that school is now closed), but this only confirms that just because they have the Montessori "name" doesn't mean it is the right school for your child. Mrs. Rupali has a background in the Montessori program as well as child development. You have to know the owner and director's background as well their interest in your child's development. This is the right school for our son! We love it and wished we would have found this place when he was 18 months old. Better late than never! He is doing wonderful and that makes us happy as parents. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Infant Class (6 months – 18months)

Infants need not only love, emotional nurturing and a healthy physical environment, but also an environment which promotes their very real needs to learn. The Montessori Teaching Method provides a basis for individualized learning activities, appropriate for even the earliest stages of a child’s development.

The daily needs of the infant, such as diapering, feeding and bathing are the optimal times for interaction, cooperation, intimacy and mutual enjoyment. Using theses times for social learning experiences encourage full participation of the infant and the caregiver. These times become the opportunity for much communication and for nurturing. As the infant is “refueled” by such attentive, caring interaction, he or she is ready to explore the world around him with minimal intervention from adults.

The purpose of the Infant Development Program at Alpha Montessori is to encourage, assist, and protect the normal development of each child. The primary goals include development of movement and independence. Children in the Program will flourish in prepared environments which respect, support and respond to their basic needs for independence, exploration and the building of trust and self-esteem.

We believe that any kind of group child care will not work without the co-operation between care givers and the parents. Parental involvement is stressed; parents know their child better than anyone else. Parents and caregivers must feel comfortable in exchanging knowledge and experience about the child.
