Parents' Perspective

Jee Choih-Niesen & Chris Niesen

As our oldest son approached his 3rd Birthday, we began to question whether his current school/childcare center was the right fit for him and our family.  This question took on greater importance as our youngest son neared his 1st Birthday and would soon be attending school as well.  

It wasn’t that we were unhappy with the current school.  We simply believed there had to be more we could do to find an environment where our sons could flourish.  We wanted to find a place that would instill a passion for life-long learning and the encouragement to develop skills of both an academic and practical nature at the pace appropriate for them.  It turns out that our families’ journey at Little Flowers Montessori exceeded these expectations and gave us so much more.

We are incredibly fortunate that some great friends had a child attending the Little Flowers in St. Louis Park and they suggested we tour the Plymouth location.  We had visited many different pre-schools and Montessori schools but none felt like that perfect fit.   As we walked to our car after our first visit to Little Flowers we knew something was different.  Our second visit cemented our decision to enroll.

We’ve seen our boys become passionate learners and witnessed how well this has prepared them academically and socially far beyond Little Flowers.  We’ve seen them grow into respectful, responsible, caring, and confident boys.  For us, we became part of something much greater, as Little Flowers Montessori is more than just a school.  It is a community.  It is a place where children run to the doors each morning hungry to learn and a place they don’t want to leave because it feels like home.  The children’s passion for learning and for the community is made possible by the amazing staff that nurture and guide them each day.

Little Flowers Montessori prides itself on successfully developing confidence, positive social behavior, and a passion for learning with the children in their care.   From our experience, this only begins to account for everything our family has gained from this wonderful experience!
