Prairie View Montessori has been a wonderful environment for my children. Ms. Donna and her staff have a passion and thoroughly enjoy teaching and encouraging the kids to learn, explore and grow. There is a multitude of activities brought to the school such as Jungle Bus, Soccer Shots, Book Mobile, and even Spanish classes. My daughters look forward to going and regularly expresses disappointment when its time to leave. The teachers are keen to your child’s needs and interests and provide encouragement around them. Our family has been a part of Prairie View Montessori for 4 years and could not imagine going anywhere else. – (2017: Russ & Sara Giamo, Geneva)

We’ve tried several day cares and Prairie View Montessori is the BEST! Both my daughter went here. The most important: my daughter runs here in the morning with joy and doesn’t want to leave in the evening. She is having a good time, learning a lot. Teachers are really nice and kind. I highly recommend this school. (2017: Dina Romanova)

As a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing to the staff at Prairie View Montessori. I am grateful for the loving care and guidance Selena receives. Selena has learned so much and understand more English. Thanks again to the teachers for an incredible early childhood education and I believe that will continue to do the amazing works of  the “heart” with all the children. (2017)

My son flourishes at PVM. He loves the “challenging work” (as he calls it) that includes numbers and letters, among so much else. The teachers are very caring and wonderful role models. I would recommend this school to anyone – children learn, have fun and even start putting away their toys & dishes at home because it’s part of school! So much to love. (2017: Laura Chen)


We cannot say enough good things about PVM. We had our son in regular daycare and made the switch as soon as we could. What a huge difference! He can count, identify letter and colors before he is 2! We will be with Ms. Donna and the rest of the staff till our kids are in kindergarten! …(2015)”

Our daughter loves her school, her teachers and new friends….(2011)

“I have 2 children (a toddler and a pre-schooler) who attend PVM. PVM is the best educational experience we have found for our children.

I have talked highly about the school to everyone I know”…. (2010)

Ms. Priya and Ms. Kanak are so loving and caring and Sanjay has flourished. Ms. Donna is a wonderful director and we feel lucky to have found this wonderful school”.

“It was great to see my daughter’s joy of learning and continue to grow. The teachers @ PVM have given her one on one guidance and supported her throughout her 3 years there. Now, she is ready for first grade. The annual events such as plays for Thanksgiving and winter gave me a sense of family away from home at PVM. The curricula is all encompassing and thorough. Children are able to develop tactile skills, verbal, and math skills.”

“PVM has been a great asset to my daughter and our family. It has given her the opportunity to explore her own learning style, while increasing her knowledge & self-confidence. Donna and the PVM staff has been there for us during some really tough times in 2006 and I can’t thank them enough for their support!”

We see her becoming more independent, inter-connecting things in her world and showing a real interest in learning new concepts. She likes to go to school everyday and is in a good mood when we pick her up. Donna is a wonderful calming presence in the classroom”

I felt very confident in Donna’s understanding of children and passion for the children learning at her school creates an inspiring environment for growth and exploration. We feel that PVM will assist meeting our goals by giving him the opportunity to develop his life skills by purposeful activities and relationship building with other children. ”
