1. "Some how words can't express the gratitude we feel to you: Fadia, Juliana, JB and all the teachers. We were truly blessed to have found you. When both Jaden and Naya moved to elementary school, the teachers commented on how so well both were prepared for school and asked where they went to preschool, of course I proudly chimed: Pine Tree Montessori in Yorba Linda. ( the best Montessori preschool). We feel the small emptiness in our lives since we stopped seeing you everyday, but our hearts are full with wonderful memories and deep appreciation for the wonderful care you have given our children."
Fredi, Yorba LInda, Orange County
2. We needed to find a child care provider for our son when he was 18 months old because my mother was no longer able to help us with his care. We looked at several facilities and not one of them gave us that"our child will be safe and cared for" feeling...that is, until we came to Pine Tree Montessori ( best Montessori preschool) We were immediately taken with the family atmosphere and the warmth and affection they provided the children in their care. After taking a tour, we instantly knew this was where we wanted our child to spend his days while we were at work.
My son started going to Pine Tree the next day and stayed until he finished Kindergarten. He was loved and cared for just as he would have been had he been at home, but here he learned so much and he also met several lifetime friends. In fact, he met his best friend, Michael, here on his first day and they are still inseparable. My son is now in 3rd grade and he'd still be the first one to tell you how much he loved going to Pine Tree. The best Montessori preschool)

3. "Pine Tree Preschool (best Montessori) is a remarkable Preschool and Kindergarten.  Both of my kids attended from the time they were 2 1/2 until they went off to first grade.  It was very hard to say goodbye.  The people at Pine Tree are very genuine, nurturing and caring. and much kinder than other preschools.  You can tell they really care about the kids and do a lot for them.  They provide home cooked lunches, a very clean environment. great preparation for elementary school, and fun activities for the kids.  I knew from the first time I visited that it was a great place.  I never had any concerns or worries while my kids were under their care and my kids thoroughly enjoyed their experience at Pine Tree."

10. "As a first-time mother I was faced with many challenges right from the beginning.  one thing I never wanted to do was have to send my son to daycare. The thought of having someone else nurture and care for my son was not one I was eager to participate in.
It wasn't before my need for childcare became a necessity and my son was only 7 months old! After searching high and low, I found Pine Tree and thank God I did! From the first-time I walked in with my son and husband we were impressed.  The environment  was exactly what we were looking for.  Nicer and kinder than  other preschools The staff was courteous and caring and very respectful of my needs and my son's needs.  Right away we felt confident to leave him in their care.  We have continuously been impressed and satisfied.  He comes home tired, happy, and excited to go back. I couldn't ask for a better home away from home than Pine Tree." (best Montessori)

22. Dear Pine Tree,
I would like to finally say Thank You.  Thank you for taking such great care of our son Dean.  Dean has been coming to Pine Tree since the day you opened.  He even came before you opened to see what a kinder greater facility it would be.  We know that Dean will be safe in a comforting environment and we know that he will be well taken care of.  We trust all of you at Pine Tree and know that you are taking good care of him and that he is getting the kind of care only a family can give.  Dean really likes Pine Tree and all the people here.  I know he likes playing with all his friends and likes learning all the new things he has learned over the past few months.  He knows how to spell his name and knows his alphabet and numbers.  this school is so special to us because of all of the people that work here.  We love the reason you came to open this daycare.  We think that family is the most important thing in the world and if Dean can't be with his family during the work hours then I'm happy he is with one of the best families we know.  We are just really grateful for all the tings you have helped us with and all the things you are helping Dean with.  So once again Thank You!
Fonseca family, Yorba Linda. Sept. 2002
23. "After interviewing all the other Montessori preschools in the area, the last one on our list was Pine Tree Montessori, Yorba Linda.  From the moment we walked into the school we knew this was the THE school to choose.
The school is owned and run by two generations of the same family.  Each baby and child is greeted by name, even before they can talk; and very quickly falls in love with this extraordinary family.  The teachers are well qualified in early childhood education and employee turn-over rate is low.  Each child is encouraged to play and learn at their ow pace.  Discipline is fair and consistent and regular communication between parents and teachers is welcomed.
The best place for children is with THEIR own family, however, if this is not possible, choose the Pine Tree Family where your child will be nurtured, cared for and will be ready and happy to face each and every new challenge."

24. "Discovering Pine Tree Montessori was a true gift to our son.  Every parent wants to be assured that they are doing their best when it comes to their child's education so we were really torn when considering putting our son in school right before he turned 2.  We weren't sure whether it was better to send  him to school or not, and if so, which school to send him to.  We visited several Montessori schools in the area and Pine Tree felt the best.  It smelled and looked cleaner than the other ones, it had better security since each family has their unique security code as opposed to a common door code for everyone, and the staff seem to genuinely care about the the kids instead of just doing their job.  During our visit, they encouraged us to talk to the staff or any of the parents that were there at the time.  That alone said a lot since someone would only do that if they're confident that the response is positive.  After our initial visit, we had already decided on  Pine Tree but we still weren't sure when to start. 

Around that time, we got invited to a birthday party for the daughter of one of our friends and in addition to other Pine Tree students, Ms. Juliana, Ms. Fadia and Mr. JB (the Bulos family) were also invited.  my husband and I thought it was unusual for that the 'staff' of the school was invited.  The 'staff' remembered us and we greeted each other.  We told them we still weren't sure if our son was ready, so Ms. Julianna offered to let us bring him in for a trial run.

It turned out to be the best decision for us.  At the time, the only way my son would take a nap was by walking him around the block in his stroller until he fell asleep.  As a first time parent, I was very anxious as to how they would get around that.  Ms. Fadia suggested I bring his stroller but that didn't work too well in a confined environment so they ended up putting him in the swing.  Although he was obviously very tired, he still wouldn't go to sleep so Ms. Fadia partially covered his face with a blanket.  A few minutes later, he was fast asleep.  And that was the beginning of a wonderful relationship. 

This is the third year my son is at Pine Tree and that extra effort has been there every step of the way.  Pine Tree has a warm and caring environment, with an emphasis on learning.  And the learning is not limited to 'book' learning.  From the fountain with the ball suspended by the flow of water (designed by Mr. Physics JB) to the flowers and vegetables that the children plant, to the bunnies that the kids get to feed from the plants they grow, and Ms. Fadia's home, cooking, no other preschool comes close the the caliber of Pine Tree.
If you're thinking of sending your child to preschool, you owe it to them to bring them to the best place you could ever hope for--a place whee they will grow, and learn, and be loved.  Now I know why the Pine Tree 'staff' was invited to that birthday party 2 years ago and many others since.  They're not staff; they're  family"

20. "Jessica is my first baby and first grandchild of my parents.  Since she was born, my parents have been looking after her.  At home she has four adults attention.  Of course she got a little bit spoiled.  When I looked for a daycare for her, I wish the school would discipline her meanwhile provide the warm and love and care for her.  I made an appointment with several schools in this area.  One day, on the way to one of the appointments with several schools in this area I saw the Pine Tree Montessori and decided to stop by.  When I got inside the school, I found a few kids around the table learning how to make the cake.  It instantly felt warm and inviting family atmosphere.  In the next hour or so, I chatted with one mom who happened to be sitting in with her baby and she had the same feeling as I did.  I was also moved by the enthusiasm of JB and the love this daycare center provided. Pretty much decide this is it. I can't find a kinder, nicer environment
It was not an easy job to send Jessica to school.  For the past few months, Juliana, Fadia,a and JB showed big patience and spent a lot of time helping me to train Jessica.  The most important thing in order to let her feel comfortable in the school are the same love and attention Jessica needs at home was also felt at school.  Meanwhile, with so many years hands on experience in this business, the staff knew when and how to discipline and educate children depending on each child's own situation.  They are willing to work with each child's own pace to schedule the child's school time and give the suggestions and advices to the parents to help the child's growth. Right now Jessica is trying the full day program.  I am so proud of my decision to pick Pine Tree Montessori as my child's first school."
