Who we are

Allen Montessori Academy was established in 1982 and it was the first, original Montessori school in Allen, Texas.

Our mission is to offer a warm, loving, high quality, year-round education to children 6 weeks to age 6 years old.

We are a school that awakens children's imaginations to the limitless possibilities in life, and a community in which children and adults find friendships and support. As the first formal educational experience for our students, our program is designed to provide a lasting foundation of skills and positive attitudes to support a lifetime of learning.

At our school, everyone is encouraged to ask questions and broaden their understandings of themselves, others, and the world around them. We incorporate the values and methodology developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Our classrooms are structured to address each child's individual needs, strengths and passions.

Success in our school is directly related to our Montessori certified, dedicated teachers, (some of whom have been with Allen Montessori Academy for over 12 years, others more than 6) and the belief in which children develop of themselves as capable, self-directed, and independent. Dr. Maria Montessori developed her specialized, hands-on curriculum methods over a century ago based on years of observing children learning. Each classroom environment contains a wide range of materials that attract the child’s interest and present concepts in a carefully sequenced order, under the watchful guidance of Montessori-prepared teachers.

Testimonials

Proud to send my daughter to AMA! My daughter is about to turn 3, and she has attended Allen Montessori Academy in Allen, TX since she was only 3 months old. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Allen Montessori Academy! During the day when I am at work, I feel very assured knowing that my daughter is being loved and cared for in such a wonderful educational environment. My daughter absolutely loves her schooling, and I am very pleased that she considers her school such a positive place to be. The entire staff at Allen Montessori Academy is knowledgeable, caring, attentive, loving, and trustworthy. I know I owe a lot of my daughter's advanced development to her schooling at Allen Montessori Academy. She loves to read, she shows concern and respect for other children, she says please ...
I have two daughters, both of which have attended Allen Montessori Academy. We visited just about every major and some in-home childcare facilities before we settled on AMA. There was a night and day difference between AMA and the others. It was clear to us on our first visit that the educators at AMA were passionate about montessori teachings and practices and were not simply there to provide daycare. If you value education and are looking for a place to help your child learn both practical life and academically, AMA is that GREAT place.
We have been in AMA for a few years now and I can't even begin to explain how much we LOVE this school. From the top notch management, to the last teacher. There is virtually NO TURN AROUND, which is unheard of if you look at any other daycares. It says a lot! The staff must like working there as well. The montessori education is fantastic, the teachers are Montessori certified. My children are much more advanced in any areas of life then any of their peers. All of my family members are super impressed with their knowledge and behavior. Superior value and very affordable! Highly recommend it to anyone!
My first child joined 7 years ago, then my second one and now my third one is enrolled in this school. The school may not be very fancy but its most important asset is its staff. The dedication and concern of its teachers for my child's learning are phenomenal. All teachers are certified and highly experienced. I highly recommend this school to all parents. Before joining this school, I enrolled my first child in a very fancy school. I tried that school for a whole one year and finally with lot of disappointment, I pulled her out and enrolled in Allen Montessori and since then I never thought of any other school. My youngest one looks forward to go to school everyday and she loves her teachers. The parent-teacher communication is also remarkable.
The Allen Montessori academy has been a God send for our child. She absolutely LOVES this school, LOVES her teachers and looks forward to being there every day and cant wait to go home and work on her assignments. We have been attending this school for over three years and could not be happier. Her social and educational experience has her more prepared for kindergarten than we could have ever hoped for. Yes, we tried other so called day cares - don't waste your time or money if you truly want to see your child develop fundamental life skills at an early age. Her teacher has over 28 years of Montessori experience and has a passion for the children like no other. If you are looking for a safe and caring place for your child, I encourage you to give them a call, It has been a blessing for ou...
