My experience at Allen's Montessori was Amazing! You could do fun activities and play outside in the colourful playground or sit inside in a calmer environment playing learning games. The teachers helped to shape me into the man I am today and they made delicious food too! My Favourite moment was Culture Day! I chose Jamaica/Barbados because my family/relatives come from or live there. But I do have a least favourite moment and that was when I said goodbye to Allen's Montessori.
I just wanted to express how happy I have been with the nursery. I have sent both of my daughter 's there . The staff are excellent and have had a positive influence on my children, when I have not been able to look after them. The children work hard , enjoy learning through play and are at a high standard of learning by the time they are ready to go to primary school. The staff give me feedback when required. It is hard to leave your children with someone else, but it gives a parent confidence to know that you leave your child in the care of someone who, essentially, takes care of them like a member of their own family. An excellent team.
I love Allen's because it is a home away from home. Both my children have been stimulated, nurtured, guided, to explore and be inquisitive about their learning environment, their thoughts, choices, people and the world around them. The staff are warm, friendly and wonderful, so settling my children in wasn't a concern. I know Allen's strives to help me achieve my goal of assisting my children to uncover, explore and develop their learning and social potential so they are confident, motivated, independent thinkers, explorers and contributors to the environment and world around them.
I still remember my days at Allen’s Montessori almost 20 years ago probably due to the magnificent impact it has had on my life. My time at the nursery was filled with fantastic memories with friends and teachers that I am still in contact with. From the moment you walk in, you are welcomed with warming smiles, not forgetting the fragrant aromas of the kitchen travelling through the nursery! Such emphasis is placed on education of a high standard, as well as responsibility and discipline. This has definitely benefitted me throughout my career. Not only does Allen’s ensure impeccable learning opportunities, they prepare you for the transition to primary education. I am grateful that my parents made the decision to send me there and would 100% recommend Allen’s Montessori for all parents!
I have known Mrs Allen and most of her staff since she opened the nursery. My daughter Hazel went there first and then followed by my daughter Leyla. Recently my granddaughter also went there and has now started school, she is nearly 5 years old!! They all had a great time there and learnt their initial life skills. I was happy that my kids were well cared for in a happy environment. The staff at the nursery have been wonderful and that is reflected in the number of years they are still working there and supporting Mrs Allen. I would recommend the nursery to anyone!
Today Azarni had his first assembly at David Livingstone. Out of his whole class he won the star prize and certificate for his passion for Maths. He even got to walk down a red carpet with his teacher after he received the Award. Thanks to all your hard work for I know its because of all the teaching at Allen Montessori he is going to win many prizes.
