We offer Primary Program for children aged 3 years – 6 years old at both our locations - Plano & Frisco. Children are required to be potty-trained to enter our Primary program. We are a member of the American Montessori Society and Fully certified and licensed by Texas Health and Human Services.
I want to start by saying I highly recommend Alpha Montessori! My daughter has been attending the Plano campus since her first birthday and in almost 2 years I am thrilled at her progress. She is a very smart, very personable, and very well-behaved toddler. While we do preach many of the same principles at home as are taught in school, I believe it is the excellent teacher that Finley has that has enhanced her abilities. Ms. Jackelyn D has been amazing with Finley and because of that, we have a toddler who loves to go to school every day. When we were on vacation she kept asking when she could go back and see Ms. Jackie. At just over 2.5 Finley was counting to 20 in English, counting to 10 in Spanish, knew the days of the week, could recite all 12 months in order and was fully potty trained. She turns 3 in a couple of months and I can’t wait to see how much she continues to grow. Outside of our excellent teacher, Alpha does a great job celebrating a variety of holidays from not just America but from around the world as they have a diverse student population.Read Less
Our son attended Alpha Montessori from 14months until he was 5 years old and ready for kindergarten. We toured many schools, and nothing had felt right until a friend recommended Alpha-we went to check it out and it just felt like the right fit. Over the last 4 years Max has developed such special bonds with Alpha teachers, staff and classmates. He enjoys going to school (most of the time) and we are happy knowing that he will be more than prepared for Elementary school. The Montessori approach has taught Max so much in the classroom as well as helped him become a confident and independent child. Highly recommend checking out Alpha when you are vetting pre-schools/schools—and trust your mom gut!Read Less
We cannot say enough good things about Alpha Montessori! My son enters the school each day with a high level of excitement. He has made leaps and bounds in his growth as a toddler through all of his learning stages. He comes home daily and surprises us with something he has learned. At AMS we know he is safe, appreciated by his teachers and the staff, and all the kids are equals. AMS celebrates everyone and they always have fun activities and events for the kids and families. We would not have our son anywhere else. AMS was one of the best decisions we made for our son!Read Less
When I started interviewing schools to send my first child, I knew that when I found the right place I would just know. From the moment I stepped into Alpha, I just knew this was the only place I wanted to send my child(ren). I love how they teach the child as a whole. It isn’t just about doing worksheets, but it is about growing them in all aspects of life. My children have blossomed here. They have made friends, and so have I. I love that they do different charity events so it can teach the kids that we can always give back. The teachers are so loving and they take care of them as if they were their own. My oldest is learning how to read, and my youngest has gotten an impressive vocabulary for only being three. Thank you for always taking such good care of my babies!!Read Less
AMS provides excellent childcare. They make sure to incorporate several learning lessons each day. The staffs are knowledgeable and well trained, they take interest not just in the child they care but support the entire family. We moved from Houston to Plano in July of 2019, when our son was 7-month-old. AMS teachers made his transition to the new school smooth and pleasant for us. My 17-month-oldhas been attending for almost a year now after spending 4 months at a different center and he has more confidence that ever and is learning at an amazing rate. Thank you all for your efforts! We strongly recommend Alpha Montessori School Plano.

We have had at least one child in Alpha Montessori since 2014. Our oldest is now in elementary school, and the foundation she got in Alpha has helped her to excel years later. Our daughter was a very shy 18 month old when she started at Alpha. I don’t think she uttered a word for the first month she was there. Her teachers were so patient with her; letting her adjust at her own pace, and she blossomed at Alpha. We love how she was taught to her strengths, at her own speed, using her interests to guide her.
The teachers at Alpha allow all the students to learn at their own levels; the class doesn’t have to learn the same things at once. The teachers know exactly where every child is learning and can easily juggle the workload. And because of that, our daughter was empowered to learn more. Even now, while she is in elementary school, she is doing school work well above her grade level (her teacher is having trouble finding advanced enough lessons for her). I give the credit for that to Alpha Montessori. She was never taught that there was an arbitrary cap to the school work her age group could learn or that there is only one way (“the right way”) to learn. Alpha fostered a challenging and fun learning environment and used her natural learning tendencies to shape her lessons.
When it was time to put our youngest in daycare, we knew we wanted him to go to Alpha Montessori, too. He has a very different personality and even learns differently than his sister. Still, the teachers and environment at Alpha have helped him to grow and learn tremendously. One of our favorite things about Alpha is the independence our children gain from going there. They want to be able to do things for themselves, and aren’t satisfied with having everything handed to them or done for them.
As parents, we also enjoy all the events and camaraderie at Alpha; the Cultural Parade is one of our favorite events throughout the year. (It’s very tasty, too!) Its nice to be able to interact with the parents of our children’s’ classmates and friends.Read Less
The teachers are amazing my daughter has grown so much emotionally and socially through their program for infants. I’m still able to breast feed her for lunch and how understanding they are to all families is just amazing. I can’t wait to see what more my daughter will learn from them and how she will grow into a smart and well adjusted toddler.Read Less
We highly recommend Alpha Montessori as a highly organized center of dedicated educators who prioritize the “whole person” development of our children. Under Dr. Rupali’s direction, Alpha Montessori serves as a developmental Mecca characterized by a broad focus on educational, cultural, health, physical fitness, and humanitarian objectives for little minds to grow and flourish. We love the diverse cultural experience that our girls have enjoyed and we value the love, support, and dedication that the staffs have provided. We are confident that our babies are in good hands, which provides us assurance to trust Alpha Montessori to co parent our babies.
Additionally, I cannot stress how impressed we have been with Alpha Montessori’s handling on the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and Dr. Rupali’s dedication to providing an important service during the pandemic. The health and s safety measures have been impeccable and the willingness to serve cannot be unstated. The transparency and communication has been informative and encouraging, and we are thankful that the staff is working tirelessly to serve others.Read Less
Our son has been attending Alpha in Plano since he was 14months old (he’s now turning 4). I am constantly amazed by how much he learns while he is there. More importantly, I love how much he has loves and respect all of his teachers, which I know is a reflection of the love and attention that they show to him. I feel safe that he is in good hands when I drop him off and know that he is receiving not only daycare, but a great pre-school education. I love Montessori style learning and feel like he will have a great start when he heads into elementary school. We really are so grateful to have found Alpha!Read Less
My son has been attending Alpha Montessori for approximately 5 months. His teacher has been great getting him acclimated early on from having a sitter to having to go to school with other children. I like the fact that he’s on a schedule now and has a routine. Our primary focus was for him to grow intellectually and I’ve seen lots of progress here. The teachers always give me insightful feedback whenever I ask how he’s doing. I think this is a great place to send your child.Read Less
