“It was our first time enrolling our son in preschool so we were nervous at first but the teachers and the rest of the staff at SpringStone are so incredible that they soon made us feel comfortable. Our son is excited every morning about going to school. He’s becoming more social and educated each day. We are very thankful to have discovered SpringStone and its incredible staff. We highly recommend this school.”

Christina and Michael Eritson

“This our 3rd daughter’s first pre-school experience. The atmosphere and learning environment is optimal for all young children. All of the students receive individual attention. The children’s needs are addressed and the staff take special interest in Caylyn and the other students. I can be at ease when she is at school knowing she is cared for, safe, and in a place that facilitates her future success. Surprisingly, of all things, she loves the food. My children tend to be very picky eaters, but everyday when I drop her off, she insists that I read her menu. She gets excited, especially for tomato soup.”

Shane Jasmine Young

“My child has learned so much from the pre-school program. The minute he started at SpringStone, which was at 18 months, we saw changes in his independence and confidence. He loves his pre-school teachers and talks about them to this day, specifically Ms. Dorene and Ms. Norma.”

Wenda Cordero

“I believe our family needed to experience other facilities first in order to truly experience and appreciate SpringStone. We feel extremely blessed to have found such a wonderful group of teachers and staff. My son loves his teachers, he tells me every morning “Mommy, I go to school today.” Even on Saturday and Sundays! If my son wants to go to school 7 days a week SpringStone must be doing something right. My son has never requested to go to school prior to finding SpringStone. SpringStone is amazing, period! Thank you everyone, we are so glad we found you!”

Randi Lee and David Beyl

“Our son has been in SpringStone since he was 18 months old. Respect for space, people, feelings and objects has been our favorite. At age two, we went home to visit family for the holidays. He asked to up from the table, asked to touch objects that did not belong to him. He knows that there is a place everything and everything has it’s place. As he has gotten older, the education has been impressive. I have come to pick him up and the teacher said “ He’s working on a math problem, can you wait ten minutes?” Priceless.

You hear that the first five years are the most important, at 3 years old he’s starting to read, doing addition, and asking “why” or “explain, please”. Now, as we prepare for him to leave SpringStone, our most important task is to move him to a school that continues to challenge him and push him towards being successful not only as a person, but also academically.”

Kerry and Amanda Gulino

“SpringStone always has great activities that continue to inspire children and their parents. My son loves having his great teachers that are nurturing and fun and at the same time encourage growth. He loves his friends and all the fun learning activities. SpringStone is also a safe place for my child. I know that when I drop him off he’s going to have a great day and there is no worry on my part. My son is allergic to dairy and Mr. Darryl and the kitchen staff are so great cater to his needs. I truly appreciate this!”

Marisa Finetti


“The thing I love the most about Springstone is that the teachers and staff truly care about and love my children. I could think of no better place to give my kids a head start in life.”

The Smith Family


“As an educator and parent, I can tell you, my husband and I are so very pleased with SpringStone Montessori’s methods of teaching. We are truly delighted with how our children are embraced, nurtured, and supported by the staff and teachers. Our children are excited to go to school and learn new things each day. The combination of the Montessori teaching methods and philosophy along with a great staff has allowed my children to excel both academically and personally.”

The Ortiz Family


“On our first visit to SpringStone, our children felt so welcomed and comfortable, they wanted to start attending that very day! We love the environment at SpringStone and are so pleased with the balance of Montessori practices accompanied by desirable activities like music, yoga, Spanish, dance, science and computer classes. It’s great to see our children enjoy learning in so many different ways. Thanks SpringStone!”

The Sullivan Family


Our son has attended Spring Stone since 11 months old, and this place is so awesome! He has been here over 2 years now. I have never felt uncomfortable leaving my child and there are days my son doesn't want to leave! They are so fun and welcoming! I would recommended Spring Stone Carmel 110%!!

We absolutely love everyone here. Since day one with our tour, they were amazing, and extremely helpful. I have 2, 4 year old boys that go, and one is an extreme handful. All the staff have gone out of there way to help him feel more comfortable there, and help him settle in. They truly appreciate your children like it was there own.

Before even enrolling my daughter into this school the entire staff was so kind and helpful. They made me feel completely at home and comfortable. I immediately enrolled my daughter that day and since the very beginning she has felt at home and has thrived. Mrs. Belinda is like a second mother to my daughter and I feel so at peace dropping my daughter off into her care. The teachers and director call me anytime there is even a slight concern and ask for my approval before any decisions are made. The parent posts make you feel involved in the daily activities of your child. This place is top notch. The only problem I have is that she has to stop attending when she starts kindergarten!

My daughter attended springstone for 3 months and only coz we moved out of state she had to quit , this is the best place ever to send ur child !! In this Ms Amy and Ms karina did a marvelous job with her!! We saw her bloom and progress right after her first week , she can now write her name !! The best thing about this facility is whenever I walk in at anytime its really clean and tidy !! The whole staff is really cooperative and understanding .
A big thank you to everyone at springstone !!

We were referred here from another Montessori school that was full and on the waiting list. They made extra room for my son and were nothing but helpful and caring. If we were not waiting to get into a Montessori school closer to our house he would have stayed at this location. He was very happy there and really liked his teachers. I would like to thank Miss Diane and Miss Edith for their help and being great teachers.

We absolutely LOVE the school! Wyatt has great teachers- Ms. Julie and Ms. Jeimy! The front office staff is fabulous too- Ms. Renee, Ms. Tonya, and Ms. Norma! I wouldn't have Wyatt attend preschool anywhere else!
This is the place to be!

This is the best preschool in all the valley! I've worked here side by side with Ms. Shannon in a classroom. We, together watched the most amazing children flourish! Good times, huh partner!? It was the most amazing experience! Lori, was always absolutely fair and generous with her staff. Spring stone, was always full of creativity and Montessori love. It is an honor to say I worked here at this 5 ?????????? Preschool. Much love and blessings to the best preschool in the Las Vegas Valley! (Big Shout out to, Miss Shannon who rocks day in and day out! ??.)

by Shayna Holmes - Aliena Luna on SpringStone Montessori Preschool - Randolph

I am now ruined when it come to care for my daughter. We love and miss Springstone on Randolph! My husband's job took us away from Albuquerque, and I have to say that I miss Springstone just as much as my family from Albuquerque. This is because they became our family. My daughter is constantly pouting and saying, "I miss my old school!" And looking for a new place is next to impossible now because nowhere is as good as the place we left. And this is specifically for the Randolph location, as we tried Rio Rancho for a while because it was closer... and then ended up back at Randolph, driving the extra 30 +/- minutes just to feel back at home at our favorite school with our favorite people. We miss you all!

Our daughter started attending Springstone when she was 2 years and 6 months. We were blessed to be received by Miss Rosemary and Miss Adriana. They were absolutely wonderful with us. They love children and made the Home care to School care transition very smooth.

Now she is 4, she has been moved to the Toddlers class. She absolutely loves Miss Norma and Miss Stacie. They are outstanding teachers, with lots of experience and really nice with the kids. My daughter looks forward to go to school every day.

I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.

Our Lucy has been with the awesome Miss Amanda in room two. When Lucy turned two she started at Montessouri and to say she was displeased with the prospect of going to school would be an understatement. In fact, I had to go get her the first day because she would not stop crying. The next day we brought Lucy back and she was still very sad but Miss Amanda welcomed her back with kindness and open arms. Less than a week went by before Lucy was asking to go to school and see "Miss Amina". She has learned so much over her first year. She is still two, but can count to twenty (most of the time) can name her letters and colors, can tell me about hoppy kangaroos and can show me her yoga moves. Miss Amanda (and of course Miss Sam and Miss Sarah) have shown compassion and love to our Lucy and have taught her so much. We were happy to be sending Lucy to Montessouri, but have been truly blessed to have the opportunity to send her to a classroom where it is so obvious that she is understood and appreciated. Thank you room two teachers!

There are many positive things to say about Springstone Montessori room 5 and the staff. My child is happy and she loves to go to school. There is nothing more delightful than having a child who loves to learn and comes home to talk about it. Ms. Sherilyn and Ms. Uli encourage all the different personalities and adapts to support each child. As part of the Montessori curriculum, I understand the independent activities that focus on different areas. My child excels when she learns at her pace. Right now, one area my child is focusing on is how to read. Ms. Sherilyn, Ms. Uli, and I discussed how my child was having some difficulty. We worked through it together and they keep me informed of her progress. I am very satisfied with my child’s progress and the quality of education she receives.
Aside from my child’s happiness, I am happy with Springstone Montessori overall. The staff is friendly and attends to matters with a smile. They keep me informed through the parent communication board. They have an onsite kitchen to make fresh and healthy meals for the kids. Not microwaved food! With my busy schedule, it’s one less thing I have to worry about. The school building is safe and secure and in a good neighborhood, and I have to mention this… I am very pleased with the quality of families attending the school. In our class, we always have an abundance of parent participation.

Our 4 year old son, Drake, started attending SpringStone Montessouri in October of last year. It was his first time being away from family and was initially a little hard for him to adjust. Thank goodness his teacher recognized his hesitation and helped him settle in each morning.

We are amazed with how much progress he has made in only 8 months while attending school only three times a week. He often relays information he has learned throughout the week from the various subjects he covers in class and we are impressed. He has so much pride in the work he does at school, and especially in the artwork he brings home.

He often tells us how much he loves both his teachers, Ms. Sherilyn and Ms. Uli, and how he loves going to school. He gets excited about upcoming activities and it makes us so happy that he's at a place that encourages him to grow. We love that he's able to work on activities at his own pace and choose work that he ultimately wants to do.

We appreciate how personable the teachers are. In the beginning, we were concerned with how Drake was adjusting and we had the chance to speak with his teacher on a regular basis. We were welcomed and encouraged to stop by and look at the monitors or call the teachers throughout the day. This was very reassuring to us. We also enjoy getting the weekly newsletter, along with additional updates and photos of classroom activities.

SpringStone Montessouri has been a great fit for our son and we plan on sending our daughter there in the future.

We asked Aden his thoughts of Springstone. As a 5-year-old who can articulately express himself, says a lot about his learning experience. Aden expressed how much he "enjoys the jobs" in his classroom. He mentioned to us how "Ms. Sherilyn, Ms. Uli, and Ms. Rachel taught me to read." He is excited as he moves up in reading level. Aden explains to us about the trinomial which increases his confidence with math. Furthermore, we have expressed to our friends and family about Sprinstone Montessori. This school is not just any Montessori school, but it is the right choice to place your child. The teachers and staff make a positive growing experience not only for your child but also for the parents.

Montessouri has been such a blessing to our family! Our son started at Montessouri at 18 months, I was a nervous first time mom searching for a preschool that made me feel safe and comfortable leaving my child. My husband and I toured several schools in Las Vegas and nothing compared to Montessouri. The staff is exceptional here and made us feel so comfortable and answered all my questions and were always quick to respond. His teachers are awesome, super friendly and caring. Our son has excelled beyond our expectations and comes home everyday telling me what he learned in school and everyday I'm surprised that at the age of 2 what he is learning and retaining. I cant speak highly enough of the staff the teachers are just so kind, friendly, and caring. My son loves to go to school and wakes up on Saturday asking if its a school day. We can't say enough how much we LOVE Montessouri and how thankful we are to have them in our lives!

5 classroom is very good. It is my childrem's class.

Our son started at this location in March 2014. He has been in daycare since he was almost a year, so he was familiar with what was expected in a school environment to a point. However, the daycares he had previously attended were home daycares and were not so structured. In looking for a school to send him to in Las Vegas, we quickly ruled out home daycares. Many of them seemed to be child storage with no real effort towards learning. We also ruled out the larger daycares which seemed to have too many children and too few teachers. This school really seemed to strike the perfect teacher/student balance.

Previous to signing up here, our family had just moved from California. Our son's whole world had just been turned upside down. We left everything he had been familiar with and he was not taking it well. When we first moved, he stayed home with me for the first three weeks - and he was miserable! He was having massive tantrums that lasted an hour at least every day if not more often. We were genuinely beginning to worry that he might have a behavioral disorder. I felt utterly helpless and frightened. My husband, having started a new job, could not help much. It became clear that he could not stay home with me and we needed to find the right environment for him. Our son is a big boy. Tall and strong...and stubborn...really really stubborn. Really. Stubborn. it was obvious that we needed to focus all of his boundless energy in a positive direction.

After looking into the Montessori method, on paper, it seemed perfect. The focus was on teaching each child in the way that best suits the child. I loved the concept and after touring the campus and meeting Miss Jenilee, I felt confident that the school was the right one for our family. It was honestly the best decision I have ever made.

Our son started in the Pond Room with Miss Rosemary and Miss Adrianna. I cannot say enough good things about these two. They are lovely human beings who take obvious joy and care about what they do. Apart from their awesome demeanor, they were able to focus my son and allow him to find joy in his work. After two weeks, he was unrecognizable. Drop-offs were painless and pick-ups delightful. Thanks to his teacher's open communication with me and my husband and our commitment to consistency at home, our son's tantrums all but disappeared after the first month and when he did have them, we were able to keep them to a much shorter duration. Just before his 3rd birthday we started potty training. Again, with the help of his teachers, we were able to get Oliver fully potty trained within a few weeks. Shortly after his 3rd birthday, because he was potty trained, it was time to move into a pre-school classroom. I will not deny that this made me very nervous. However, my concerns were quickly put to rest.

Our son moved into the River room with Miss Norma and Miss Stacey. I was nervous at first because Miss Norma definitely demands more structure. Initially, I confused that structure with severity. That is not the case. After the first week, it became clear that Miss Norma is incomparably good at what she does. Where Oliver's attitude and energy had improved in his previous classroom, in this new classroom, his language and understanding really blossomed. Suddenly he is reciting the alphabet and recognizing numbers and colors. The excitement he expressed in the car when we passed a GREEN CAR! or a the LETTER 'C' in CVS was contagious. We could not help getting excited with him as he began identifying things in the world with things he learned in the classroom. Both Miss Norma and Miss Stacey have given Oliver a true gift in giving him the joy of learning.

Lastly, I do not want to leave out the front desk and office staff. Miss Jennilee and Miss Lori are excellent at what they do. They are tactful, thoughtful, attentive and kind. On the very few occasions when I had to deal with them about concerns I had, they always made me feel that my concern was legitimate and would be taken seriously. i would recommend this school to anyone. Whether your child is outgoing or shy, the teachers and staff here will find the best way to bring out the best in your child.

My two-year-old has been in the care of SpringStone since shortly before turning one. He is my second child to attend SpringStone. When I knew I would need daycare/preschool for a new baby, there was no doubt in mind where I would place him. SpringStone provides loving care in a supportive environment. The facility is clean, the food is fresh and the staff is wonderful. I feel like the staff genuinely cares about my child. My now nine-year-old started kindergarten fully prepared academically and I credit SpringStone. He is now in the fourth grade and he enjoys school and learning thanks to the foundation from SpringStone. My two-year-old has already learned so much the past year and a half. Furthermore, there are still many of the same staff members that were there when my nine-year-old attended SpringStone five years ago. I feel this speaks very highly of the management. Thank you, SpringStone!

Every parent wants the best for their child… and SpringStone Montessori is the best. My oldest daughter, Aurelia first started attending SpringStone about three years ago and my youngest daughter, Layla, two years ago. Having moved to the neighborhood, I was referred to SpringStone by a friend. After a delightful tour of the facility, my wife and I decided to give SpringStone a try. We had bad luck in the past with another Albuquerque program, and needless to say I was a worried Daddy. The first day I dropped off Aurelia, the school administrator at the time, Desi, told me not to worry because “these are my children…they are not my children… but they are my children.” From that day on, I have never worried about my children’s safety or the every excellent quality that SpringStone offers.

I receive Parent Posts every day, I get to see pictures of my girls learning, playing, and socializing. They have numerous special events that I get to take part in and demonstrate my interest in my children’s education. Every teacher’s bio and credentials are posted outside the respective rooms. My kids are always excited to go to school and they have developed wonderful relationship with their teachers. I feel I can call anytime and receive and instant update on my girls. In short, I confidently state that SpringStone exemplifies the highest quality of care for their students, their health, their education, and their happiness.

Our Son, Gregory “Alex” LaVoie has been attending Spring Stone for approximately three weeks. The transition has been tough but thanks to the gentleness and experience of Amy Bullis, Alex is happy and interested in his new life at school. All is well now so long as Miss Amy is there. Her patience also extends to us. Naturally we, like Alex, had a very rough first three weeks and she didn’t hesitate to inform us through pictures and very graciously took our many, many calls to calm our nerves.

We are glad Amy is our son’s teacher and look forward the rest of the school year.

Our son has been attending Springstone – Carmel for about a year now. Prior to Springstone, he had been in a mixture of in-home daycare and with a grandparent. I still can’t believe the change in him since he started – it’s incredible! I feel like our son already had an interest in learning, but Springstone fostered it and brought it out in a way that I didn’t think was possible in such a young child. He loves reading, helping us at home, doing things on his own, and he’s so polite. He’s really like a little man, and it’s all because of the environment he’s been put into at school. We’ve also gotten support with critical issues, such as pacifier addiction and potty training. I feel so lucky that we found Springstone and know it will be a part of our family for a long time. I can’t say enough positive things about the teachers we’ve had and the curriculum. We know that with the background he’s building now, he’s poised to soar in elementary school.

I’d particularly like to recognize the teams of Melissa/Salma and Isabel/Latilla – we LOVE them!

by Edward & Tamela Richards on SpringStone Montessori Preschool - Paradise

This is our son's last preschool year at Springstone Montessori. We recently had our son change classrooms because we felt his previous teacher was quick to identify potential learning disabilities with our son rather than willing to change teaching techniques to engage our son, as all students do not learn in the same way. We had our son tested through APS and he passed all developmental and motor skill levels for his age group.

Ms. Stella is our son's new teacher, and we are very happy with Ms. Stella's teaching method and skills as she creates an environment that fosters learning. Our son learned to write his last name within 3 weeks of being in Ms. Stella's class, and he can now write his entire name. Ms. Stella is known to keep an eraser in her pocket, ready to erase misspelled letters as her students continue to practice writing their names. Learning to write your last name is usually taught in kindergarten so many thanks to Ms. Stella for giving our son the opportunity to learn something new in her class. Our son was struggling with number recognition and Ms. Stella worked with our son one-on-one before she came to us with her concerns. We have been working with our son at home with number recognition for the past four weeks, in addition to his one-on-one with Ms. Stella, and we are astonished by his progress. This goes to show that Ms. Stella cares about her students and ensures her students succeed. Ms. Stella also creates a structured environment for her students, which we appreciate so that our son knows exactly what is expected of him and helps him to develop self-discipline. Our son has only in been in Ms. Stella's class for the past 3 months and we have already seen positive changes in his behavior and learning skills. We tries to read a book on his own by telling his version of the story from the pictures in the book. We recently gave him a pocket notebook and pen because he likes to draw and doodle more, and he will copy words from a book then write them in his pocket notebook. Kudos to Ms. Stella!

We would like to thank the Director of Springstone Montessori for her understanding and for allowing our son to change classrooms. Thank you for making it a smooth transition for our son and for us.

Our daughter loves Springstone! As soon as we arrive she takes off running with excitement so she can go play. The curriculum is definitely helping develop our daughter’s verbal, social, and mechanical skills, and I think the quality of education is very high. This is not just a daycare. The staff is very loving with our daughter and very flexible with us and our work schedules. The prepared meals make our life easier as we don’t have to pack her food every day and we know she is getting a nutritious meal.

I have noticed that my grandson is eager to learn. He comes home and shares what he's learned. Sometimes we role play and he's the teacher. When we do this he shares what his teacher's have taught him. He is outgoing and not afraid to try new things or be in front of many people. I think that Springstone has given him this confidence. We love that the environment is so caring and loving. We feel like the staff truly care about, not just for, the kids.

We feel that we made the right choice in Springstone Montessori School.

by Courtney Johnson-Vidales on SpringStone Montessori Preschool - Randolph

Springstone was always our first pick. They exceeded our expectations in the infant room with my son. When we could not be with our son there was no one more that we trusted to take care of him than Ms. Lisa and Ms. Adrienne. We are now with Ms. Irene and Ms. Renee and they are just as wonderful. Thank you Springstone!

by Terri and Frank Lovato on SpringStone Montessori Preschool - Paradise

Our grandson has attended the Springstone Paradise location for almost 5 years. It has been a wonderful experience. He has learned so much – both academically and socially. The environment is conducive to learning. The teachers and staff are supportive, approachable, and they truly love the children. My grandson is an independent, confident and happy student which I attribute to the educational environment and the exceptionally capable personnel at the school.
