My 3 year old son attended L. Robert Allen preschool. Although the school has been around 30 years old the staff is all brand new, including the director Kathleen Evans. Despite the Montessori accreditation, this school is a hybrid Montessori school. Although my son took naps every day at his previous school, In the 3 months he was at L. Robert Allen he only slept 2 days. The staff said that he did not feel safe there, thus no naps. This is one of the few areas I agree with them.

I found out that they were punishing him and giving him hour long time outs when he did not sleep. They started to call my wife and I to pick him up for not taking a nap. One day when I arrived at the school, my son was in the directors office alone with another boy (who was completely bottomless) with the door shut. When I challenged them on the time outs we started to get calls to pick him up earlier, earlier. A few times as early as an hour after we dropped him off. Those calls where because he was running from the staff. I did contact the Dean of Chaminade who is in charge of the preschool, he really was not interested in the going on at the preschool. Maria Montessori first started the Montessori Method by teaching mentally challenged kids, this is the furthest thing happening at L. Robert Allen. Unless your child is perfect, i would strongly suggest staying away from this school unless you want to receive call like this


Mrs Evans is been giving a freehand to run the school as she feels fit, unfortunately she is not fit to do so. I do not believe that have the skill set to handle 3 year olds. You might be okay if you child is older. But then again why take a chance, there are do many other Montessori schools to choose from.
