Thank you very much for taking care of Milo. He loved your Spanish, he told me you taught him. We hope we comeback in the future, it is a really good thing to know that Milo was in a place where he was welcome.

Thank you.

It was such a blessing to send our daughter to Matatena Montessori. She flourished with Flor and matured so much. We also learned quite a bit as parents and our family is stronger because of what she gave us all.

Flor, Thank you for ALL that you have given in your years working with Wyatt! You have helped him grow and learn and appreciate problem solving. You have loved him and care for him deeper that I could ever imagined. You are such an important person to our family. I could not have dreamed of a better person to help raise my son in the early years of his life. We love you - Te queremos mucho!

Conrad really loved going to your class and I know that he grew a lot emotionally/mentally/physically during his (short) time there. It was great to see the new skills he learned when he came home.

We can't say enough good things about Matatena Montessori and how great Flor is in providing a traditional Montessori experience and warm home-like environment which allowed our son to thrive. This was our first preschool experience but where you'd expect a roomful of chaotic toddlers, we found a calm environment where every child was focused and enthralled in their own tasks.

Flor provides a lot of visibility and progress reports on tasks our son was working on, great for a working mom who wants to feel connected to their child while away. Keeping a daily schedule with time for individual work as well as group activities has been great for my son. He especially loved the weekly music sessions and special fun days like "water day" in the summer and helping to make snacks. We felt sad when he could no longer attend due to a move. I wish we could have stayed for much longer. We love Matatena Montessori and everything Flor has done to make it great!

I think you do a great job building a caring environment in your house! Although Ginny is usually a bit sad in the mornings, she came home every evening telling me she misses you and Miss Sarah, and also the new friends she made there. I really appreciate the time you spent with Ginny. She will definitely miss you all.

It is hard to put into words the gratitude I have for you & your school! Your love for my boys, your passion for teaching & creativity, your home and your family have provided the best experience for Sylas & Rylan. I couldn't have ever dream of a better place or school for them to learn & thrive!

Our son attended Matatena from when he was 2 years old to 3.5 years old. We observed tremendous growth in him from all different aspects. He learned to be disciplined and independent in many tasks. I observed him putting things away after using them and wanting to help me with simple tasks at home. Amazingly, he also learned to communicate in Spanish, which we do not speak at home. 

Most of all, he had a lot of fun with his friends and he was happy to be in this learning environment.

Thanks to Miss Flor for all you do!

Dear Ms. Flor,

Thank you so much for taking in our children in the last 7 years. They found their 2nd home in your preschool; July was really missing the school when it abruptly ended in March. She learned and ​developed so much while she was attending Matatena. Thank you!
