What our Families Say


Check out all of the nice things our families had to say about our staff.


********************************************************************************************** With thanks for all you do teachers and support staff …. Your daily teaching, uplifting, interacting, and “seeing” children are so valuable … the wonderful result is children learning, growing, building relationships, being prepared for their next school experience, and being happy at All Stars. All of your efforts are appreciated and noticed.

We have been so blessed to have found All Stars Montessori. Every day we can bring our boys to a place where we know they will be safe and cared for which means so much...but, even better, we know they are learning, laughing, singing, playing, and enjoying their time each day because they have such amazing teachers who put such tremendous time, live, and talent into their work! Ms. Kim and Ms. Denise (and all of the preschool staff) have made me confident that [my oldest son] is ready to tackle kindergarten next year. His foundation is so strong because of All Stars, so he will start school as prepared as can be which will give him so much more confidence! [My youngest son] comes home with new words each day! Ms. Christina, Ms. Deanna, and Ms. Alicia give him just the right amount of love, comfort, and encouragement to explore and become independent! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for caring for our children each day. You are wonderful team of teachers!


**********************************************************************************************


It's so nice to be able to go to work each day with peace of mind, knowing my daughter is in great hands and loves her teachers!


**********************************************************************************************


Dear teachers, Thank you for working with our children!  Your wealth of experience, patience and tenderness has always made a huge difference in their day – and ours.  Many thanks!


**********************************************************************************************


What a bittersweet time in [our daughter’s] life...she's moving on to the next chapter... Kindergarten!  All Stars has been a BIG part of [her] current chapter and it's been a GREAT one!  I can tell by [her] smile and giggles, by her friendships, and by her motivation to get to school each day that she enjoys and feels comfortable here.  She has grown in so many ways through the caring hands and hearts of Ms. Lindsey, Ms. Tracy and all the staff at All Stars.  We have trusted you with our daughter for the past few years and you have earned every bit of that trust.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking such good care of [our daughter], helping to raise her and teach her respect, and preparing her for the next chapter of life.  The staff makes the center and you are one of the best - you will not be forgotten by [our daughter] and her family!!  Thanks again for all you do!!   Miss. Caroline and Miss Angie have done wonderful things with [our daughter].  [She] talks about them all the time and loves to go see them every day. Thank you so much,


**********************************************************************************************


The staff at All Stars provide loving and learning to my child every day!  My child is treated as if she is their child and she can't say enough about how awesome her teachers are.  (Best teacher in the world is a phrase often uttered.)  She is more than ready for Kindergarten and is already asking if she can come back and visit when she begins elementary school!  A positive environment that has truly made an impact for all the right reasons!  Thank you!!!


**********************************************************************************************


Ms. Heather - Thank you for having a smile on your face every morning when we walk into school. You put a new mother's worries to ease with your confidence and assurance that our daughter will have a good day. You have a VERY important job and we completely trust you. Thank you for taking such good care of her!   Ms. Ashley - I enjoy seeing you and our conversations every day we pick-up our daughter. You do a great job of filling us in on how her day was, and I enjoy sharing parenting stories. We know our daughter is in great hands every day she is with you. We appreciate you!


**********************************************************************************************


We can’t count how many times we’ve said how thankful we are for the wonderful teachers at All Stars (special shout out to Miss Angie & Miss Carolyn).  We see our daughter learning and growing, while being nurtured.  She can sense (and so can we) how you all really care.  Thank you for taking care of the most precious thing in our lives.


**********************************************************************************************


All Stars is awesome!  Our family loves the teachers/staff.  Everyone is so kind & patient.   My daughter just adores her teachers and would do anything for them.  She talks about them all the time.  (She even wants to be a teacher when she grows up.)   We are so lucky to have found such a great place for our kids.  Thank you so much for all that you do for us & everyone at All Stars.  It's so great to have the peace of mind when our kids are in your care.


**********************************************************************************************


Thank you to all the great teachers at All Stars.  You are an important extension of our family.  It is so appreciated to know that [our son] is not only at a place that he is safe and loved, but that he looks forward to going to and being with his friends.  Learning is fun at All Stars!   I've been trying to think of a way to express our appreciation for All Stars since I heard about appreciation week.  The fact is, I don't have words to express how much we appreciate every last person you have on staff.  Every morning, we are greeted with happy and cheerful faces...welcoming the girls and us into school.  We get the same greeting and experience at pick up.  We appreciate beyond words the feeling that each of your teachers really love their jobs...and our kids.  When we moved away, I was blown away that one of the hardest parts of moving was taking our girls out of All Stars.  And when we moved back, bringing them to another Montessori was out of the question.  I feel a true sense of family at All Stars and I can't imagine our girls going anywhere else.  I can't imagine a more loving, supportive, educational, safe and fun place to bring them. I want to make a special shout out to Miss Carolyn, Miss Angie, Miss Kim and Miss Denise...the girls absolutely adore each of you....and we do too!   Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!


**********************************************************************************************


We really love all the staff at All Stars Montessori! We have had our daughters in all the different classes from infants to school agers and have always found the teachers to be so caring, thoughtful and invested in educating and taking care of our children!  Thank you!


**********************************************************************************************


Quote from [our daughter]:  "My teachers are special because they let me play outside and in the sand!"


**********************************************************************************************


We are so grateful to have Ms. Tracy for a teacher.  [Our daughter] loves having her for a teacher and she has learned so much thanks to her.  We also appreciate all of her patience when putting up with [our daughter’s] diva like behavior.  We are thankful we have found such a wonderful place to help raise our daughter.   Ms. Lynnsey:  [Our daughter] adores Ms. Lynnsey and we are so thankful to have her as [her] teacher.  We very much appreciate how well she deals with her incredibly picky eating habits and all of her other quirky behavior (having dirty baby along for the ride).  [She] loves all of the hugs from Ms. Lindsey and she is learning so much from her.


**********************************************************************************************


[Our children] are always so proud to tell people about their teachers at All Stars.  Each night at dinner we talk about our day and some of the best stories are about the projects and activities the teachers put together at All Stars.


**********************************************************************************************


We really appreciate all of the teachers at All Stars!  Our three kids love going to school in the toddler room because the teachers make it so much fun!  We love to hear the songs they teach and we enjoy seeing all of the crafts and art the kids make.  We know they are well taken care of while we are at work and are learning new things every day.  A special thanks to Deanna, Alicia and Christina who have amazing patience with toddlers! We feel so good about trusting our child to you. His teachers care about him like he is family and he really wants to go every day.  [Our son] told us, "I love Ms. Kim and Ms. Denise."  We appreciate all you have done to help shape his preschool years.


**********************************************************************************************


Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our kids. I am SO amazed how much they have learned since coming to All Stars.  It is so fun to see [our son] sounding out words and attempting to write many things!!  Thanks for getting him ready for Kindergarten! They are so excited every day to come to All Stars and always mention that I should pick them up later!  You all have so many creative ideas.  It is fun to see how excited they are to show us what they made at school.  We appreciate all you do!!!!


**********************************************************************************************


[My daughter] loves her Ms Lynnsey! She has learned so much from her from learning letters to enhancing her creativity. One special piece of Ms. Lynnsey that we love is that she always wants big hugs from her students which make them feel very special.   From a mom point of view, Ms Erika's communication is absolutely wonderful! The weekly updates are helpful and emails/calls are always returned very promptly. She always seems to have a smile on her face!


**********************************************************************************************


I wanted to take a minute to thank Ms Lynnsey and Ms Tracey for all they have done for our son. When [he] started at All Stars he was very shy and cried every day at drop off.  Over the past year and a half [he] has come to LOVE school and is excited to go every morning.  Ms Lynnsey and Ms Tracey have helped [him] grow both academically and socially into such a wonderful young man.  He will definitely miss seeing them every day and we are so thankful that we were lucky enough to have such wonderful women to help our son grow and get ready for Kindergarten!  Thank you!


**********************************************************************************************


[Our daughters] love all of their teachers.   [One of our daughters] has said that Ms. Kim is her best friend. Ms. Denise has known my girls since she was in the infant room with them; she has given me parenting advice and has been a teacher to me as well as my girls.   [Our other daughter] adores Ms. Carolyn and Ms. Angie. It is very important to her that they regard her as a good girl. When she is naughty at home, I threaten to tell Ms. Carolyn and Ms. Angie and she will straighten up right away!  Also, both girls continue to enjoy Ms. Kieya. They are proud to tell me when they were chosen to go to Ms. Kieya's room. They also love going to date nights, which they call pajama parties. Last time we went to one, the girls were worried that we would be bored without them! :)  It is never easy to send your first (or even your second) precious child to school, but always knowing they have been in a safe, loving and learning environment has always made it that much easier for us. Because of the activities you plan, your focus on development & the relationships you help foster our kids are thriving! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!


**********************************************************************************************


We have been at All Stars for 5 years now and I can't imagine a better place for my boys to have gotten a chance to learn and grow!  The teachers have been amazing and they have met friends that I know they will keep forever! There have been so many opportunities that I never imagined my kids would get to do at school from going to the theater to holding tarantulas.  Learning is always fun and exciting.  Both my boys will be at Highland next year but they will be riding the bus back to All Stars to have a familiar/safe/fun place to come to hang out at after school.  Over the years we have recommended a number of other families and not one has been disappointed with their choice!  It has been fun to watch All Stars grow and we are lucky to have such a wonderful school in Apple Valley.  There is nothing better than knowing your kids are somewhere you can fully trust and that they're learning and having a blast!  Thank you to all the staff for everything over the last 5 years!!!!

Ms. Heather-   [We] appreciate you so much and the care that you give [our son]. Prior to having [our son], we would hear friends tell me how much they worried and thought about their children during the day.  We always thought, “Yea, I’m sure I will worry, too” but it hasn’t happened. There has not been one day that we have worried; in fact, every time we think about [our son] during my day, we are filled with gratitude and happiness knowing that [he] is extremely blessed being loved by you! I will never, ever forget the day when I dropped off [our son] and he gave you one of his big smiles as you greeted him—and as I walked out of the main door to leave to start my work day, I heard his belly deep laugh along with yours.  I shed a few tears of happiness that morning! It is so powerful to see the impact someone can have when they truly live out their passions and strengths.  You were definitely meant to care for children and we are thankful that our lives have been connected. Thank you for everything you have done for our family!    Ms. Ashley-   We feel so blessed that you are a part of [our son’s] day-every day! We appreciate how much you encourage and grow his curiosity and help him explore his little world through your engagement with him! We love hearing how he did with different activities, i.e., playing in the pudding or playing in the water.  Independence and curiosity are values that we foster with [our son] and it is so awesome to know he is with someone each day that feels that is important, too.  Thank you for building on how we want to raise our child! We love hearing how he did during the day, and your honesty even if he was a little monster!  We couldn’t be happier with how you care for our little man! Thank you for all you do!   Ms. Becca-   From the day we first met you, we knew that [our son] would be in a safe, comfortable, and warm environment! Your presence is always inviting and warm which translates into us knowing that [our son] is comforted when he is with you!  Your bits of advice have been so helpful and I feel super comfortable bouncing ideas off of you in how we should handle something with [him].  Thank you for providing an environment that allows us to do that. Thank you for all you do! I love that All Stars added a Facebook Site and has a portal for parents to access photos—I can imagine that is a lot to manage so please know how much we appreciate your work in that. We love photos so it is so fun to see pictures of [his] day when we can’t be with him.  Thanks again! You are such a blessing.

I have been meaning to write a letter, but with limited time, I haven't gotten a chance to sit down, so this will have to be short and sweet which stinks because I could spend all day writing about the wonderful staff! So here it goes:   We have been at All Stars for 5 years and I cannot express how much care and love our children have received.  I would like to thank Ms. Kim for how much she helped [our oldest daughter] grow into the beautiful smart kindergartener she is now.  Ms. Kim helped [her] get ready for Kindergarten with love and lots of hugs and lots of learning that didn't feel like learning.  THANK YOU!   I would like to also thank Heather so much for taking care of my tiniest little baby when she was 3 months old until she moved off into the toddler room. Having someone watching your little baby while you are working means that you need to have complete trust in a person, and I have to say that I never doubted that for a minute .  (Also much thanks to all the other wonderful gals that helped out in the infant room).   And to Ms Christina, WOW, just WOW, I love seeing you smiling face every day and so does [our youngest daughter]. She is definitely your little shadow and I have just loved having you as her toddler teacher, she is growing up so well and singing and talking and counting and all these wonderful things I know she has learned from you. So THANK YOU! We love you!! (you are going to be the BEST mama, I just know it!)   And to Ms Deanna and Ms. Alicia! We love you very much too!! I know you also play a big part in [our daughter’s] life as well!!   To all the other helpers, we may not get to see them all that often but I know they are there and we appreciate them so much to come and help out take care of our precious kids!   Of course a big thanks to all the other teachers as well who I know have from time to time taken care of my girls over the course of a day, we love you just as much!! :)  (Ms Lynnsey, Ms Caroline)   And last but definitely not least, THANK YOU to Denise and Tracy for opening up an amazing place my kids can have as a second home and have just as much love and attention they get at home.  I am so glad we found you guys and have been able to call you FAMILY for the last 5 years, it means so much to us.   P.S.  WE LOVE the Office gals too! :)

We love all of you at ASM!!!!   I asked [our children] what makes school so special and why we are so grateful for the teachers.   Here are a few of their words (you all know our kids. this was a great conversation with many thoughts here are a few highlights).   "We love that all the teachers smile and say hi EVERYDAY!" "They always tell the mommy's and daddy's to have a great day." "Art projects are always so fun! It must take a lot of work to have a new art project every day."     [Our daughter’s] thoughts on Ms. Kim and Ms. Denise:   "My teachers ask me to be the helper when mom and dad drop me off. That makes me feel special and super HAPPY!" "Ms. Denise is teaching me to be smarter than [my brother]." "Ms. Kim calls us all friends and is the best singer and art maker in the whole world." "My teachers love to smile and laugh with all of us." "When I grow up I want to be just like my teachers."   [Our son’s] thoughts:   "I am safe at school and everyone is nice and helps all the kids the best!" "Ms. Angie and Ms. Carolyn have helped me learn a lot and make me be the leader!" "Best of all... all of us kids at school are loved by all the teachers just like how mom, dads, grandma's and grandpa's and families love us!"   As parents, we trust ASM with our most important little people. As we watch our children grow we want positive influences and people that make long-lasting positive impressions. As we talked with [our children] we found that not only have you given them the gifts of friendship, education, lessons, but love. We are so grateful for each of you, not only your talents you bring to the children but truly caring and loving them!!!   We are so blessed!!   THANK YOU!
