“My son has been attending Jordan International Montessori School for more than a year now. We see him thriving under the guidance of toddler teachers. Not only the classrooms are well organized and clean, the school also provides a calm environment for the kids to stay focused during learning . All the teachers are very nurturing and caring, when I drop him off in school I know he’s in great hands. There is constantly great communication between the parents and teachers. Daily reports, biweekly reports, monthly school newsletter and semester parent-teacher conference keep me updated on my son’s progress, challenges and successes. I can see the teachers really do put efforts into their teachings.
They are constantly adding activities to engage the kids to explore, to learn and to develop skills through hands-on projects. My son loves the daily singing time, various art crafts and cooking classes. Thanks to Jordan International Montessori School, he has grown to be more independent and confident. We could not be happier with our experience.”–Sherry. L
“Highly recommended!! My son has been in Jordan International Montessori School for one year. The classroom is clean and comfortable. Most important is the way about how the teachers communicate with the kids, that makes them feel warm and relaxed. Learning about Chinese culture is a great feature here. After the school moved to the new location, the kids like the new playground and my son use up his energy there everyday, haha.” –Ling. L
“Our daughter has had a wonderful learning experience at the Jordan Montessori school. She’s been at the school for 1 year, and her English and Mandarin skills have really improved (reading, writing and speaking!). At 5 years old, she easily fluent in both languages. The teachers are so kind, and they are very good at adapting to the various learning experiences of each child. When you visit the school, it is impressive to see how calm and in control all the teachers and children are. I highly recommend this school.”–Ryan. E
“Jordan Montessori is the Michael Jordan of Montessori’s schools! I don’t think the school was named after him, but this school is certainly in the same class. My 3 year-old has been there over a year, and we have been amazed at how much she has developed from their guidance.
What sets this school apart, from the others I visited, is that Jordan Montessori provides a well-rounded education. Our daughter is given a balance of academic instruction, language development, art, and social play in an environment that is both structured and nurturing. I’m always amazed how independent and determined all the students seem to be. Perhaps best of all, I love all the little projects the students get work on – from baking apple pies to making paper lanterns they get to take home. The school also meticulously documents their students progression through notes and photos, which is amazing to review.
My daughter’s two teachers, Candace and Emily, are beloved by her and all the students. When school was on Thanksgiving break for the week, our daughter told us how much she missed her teachers and friends at school. Her statement is the strongest testament I can give to how wonderful this school is and proof that perhaps it’s not hyperbole to say it’s the Michael Jordan of preschools in Austin.”–Rock S.
“My 3-year old daughter has been going to Jordan since the beginning of this year and she has improved in so many ways including her Mandarin, independence and social abilities. She connected with her teachers immediately from day one and looks forward to going to school every day to learn new things. The teachers will provide updates on the child’s daily progress whenever possible and I always look forward to hearing about her specific accomplishments or just pure funny moments. I’m most impressed with their detailed logs (dated pics and videos) of each student’s work in which they discuss with parents during parent-teacher conference. It was interesting to see my daughter’s progression from when she started at Jordan until now. This school is very clean and well organized and the children are also respectful of each other, this is a true reflection of the quality of teaching. Overall, I am very happy with this school and know that she’s learning and having fun every day.” -Jenny W.
“My son started going to Jordan International Montessori School shortly after turning 2 in November. We were concerned how he would handle being away from home for the first time. The teachers were very nurturing and patient during my son’s tough transition period. The teachers at JIMS gave us thorough daily updates regarding my son’s behavior, attitude, eating, and napping patterns upon pick up. We are pleased with the way JIMS uses positive reinforcements in their daily teaching practices. My son has since become more independent and confident in his day to day life. He is also more vocal with his mandarin speaking, and his comprehension skills have also improved. Lastly, the facility is well kept, tidy, and clean…always a bonus!“ -Paul S.
“Our daughter has been at Jordan Montessori for 5 months and she loves it. The teachers are kind and caring, and she looks forward to accomplishing her “work” everyday. She has become a lot more helpful, independent, and tidier around the house. She has made many friends, and looks forward to the routine of each day (circle time, outdoor play, etc). We don’t speak Mandarin at home, so we are unable to help her with her learning in that respect, but we are amazed at how much she absorbs and understands through the patient and detail oriented instruction by Ms. Lin. Overall we are extremely happy with the school and the way it is run. It is a clean, friendly, organized place to be and I feel confident my child will be well taken care of each day that she goes there.” -Pam R
“Since we lived in China for a few years, we were anxious to find a preschool that had Chinese immersion. When we began our search there we tried a Chinese preschool, but it didn’t have the deeper learning aspect that we were desiring. Then we tried an English Montessori school, which had the learning aspect, but not the language immersion. When we found JIMS we were so excited–it had both things we wanted!! We have been so pleased with the care and instruction our child is getting at the school. So much so, we recently moved to be nearer the school. The facility is clean and bright and very pleasant. The teachers are even more so. They have a secure key-pad lock on the door and a new state-of-the-art check in system that makes me feel more at-ease. Our child is learning a ton and is so happy at the end of the day that he invites us in, with gleaming eyes and a smile, to his classroom to come learn some more with him. We are so thrilled that we found JIMS and can’t wait till our 1 yr old is 18 months so she can start too! Thank you JIMS for all you do!” -Hillary S.
“We applaud Jordan Montessori school and her magnificent teachers. You have catapulted our daughter’s aptitude in such a short time. Her comprehension and awareness of her surroundings has been astoundingly noticeable and her everyday conversations with us are unanticipated and impressive. Even though she has been fortunate to have had her share of great teachers in the past we are both grateful and blessed for her learning refinement at Jordan Montessori. Thank you and keep up the great work.” -Eva Lin
“Our three years old son has been in Jordan for about three months and he loves it. Ms. Lin and Ms. Emily are amazing teachers and our son loves them. His Mandarin has improved greatly since first starting. He used on only speak in English, now he’s comfortable speaking in both languages.
The school also puts a great focus on personal responsibility and having the children do as much for themselves as they can. They are encouraged to go to the bathroom by themselves, wash their own hands, and clean up after themselves. We’ve noticed our son is becoming much more independent.
The education offered at Jordan is top notch. One of the reason we searched for a new school for our son was because his previous school kept repeating lessons our son already knew (ABCs, numbers 1 through 10). So we wanted a school the would teach him something new. Jordan definitely achieves that. Everyday, our son comes home talking about what he learned. He sings songs about the continents in both English and Mandarin all the time now.
In the short time our son has been at Jordan, he has learned so much. His Mandarin has improved, he’s become more independent, and he’s receiving a much better education than he was at his previous, regular daycare. Our son has been to a lot of schools in his short three years, and none come close to Jordan. You won’t be disappointed.“ –Thomas C.
