"Montessori is an education for independence, preparing not just for school, but for life" - Maria Montessori

Applebee Montessori Academy, a Leading Preschool in McKinney, Texas!

Imagine a place where tiny explorers embark on grand adventures every day! Welcome to Applebee Montessori Academy, a nurturing haven in McKinney where curiosity blossoms! Here, young minds aged 6 weeks to 6 years embark on a lifelong adventure of learning. Through our premier Montessori program and stimulating environment, young minds bloom into independent thinkers with a passion for exploration and a love for knowledge.

Founded in 2019, Applebee Montessori Academy is a trusted choice for families seeking a superior early childhood education. 

At Applebee, we believe in Maria Montessori's philosophy:

"Do not tell them how to do it. Show them how to do it and do not say a word. If you tell them they will watch your lips move. If you show them, they will want to do it themselves."

We invite you to join the Applebee Montessori family and discover how our nurturing environment fosters a love for learning.

TESTIMONIAL

What Applebee Montessori Parents Have Got To Say!

UPDATE 4 years later: we continue to love Applebee! Our oldest mentioned in my original review still attends along with younger brother and sister. All have had the SAME teachers, which is unheard of in daycare settings. Teachers and admin are wonderfully attentive, catering option makes my life easier, and I love that they've started to incorporate "extracurriculars" kids can participate in at the end of the day like gymnastics and soccer. Can't say enough good things about them! Read More

I cannot say enough positive things about my daughter's experience in Applebee Montessori,  Ms Mariana's class. Ms. Mariana is amazing - patient, caring, and so dedicated to the children in her class. She creates a warm and inviting environment where my daughter is excited to learn each day. The hands-on, child-led approach to learning has truly helped my child thrive both academically and socially. I am so grateful for the positive impact that Ms. Mariana and the Montessori program have had on my child. Thank you for all that you do!

Our son has been attending Applebee Montessori for 6 months and it has been a great experience. The teachers and staff were very helpful while he was getting used to a new environment and helped make the transition from staying at home fun and easy for him. All of the staff is very good at communicating throughout the day and they were accommodating any time that we had special requests. Overall this school has been wonderful!

I wish I could explain the level of amazing that this school is. My daughter was enrolled her and was under the care of Antionette and let me tell you that woman is a gift from god. She takes care of her students like they are their own and enforces the Montessori method. My daughter learned so much from being in her class and unfortunately we had to move on because of a work re-location. She has continued to check in and ask about my daughter. I really wish I could have brought her with me to my new state. The entire staff at Applebee is amazing. I am forever grateful for our time there. Antionette and Deepti are deeply missed and I am so happy our paths crossed.

My son went to Applebee for 2 years and I can't explain how amazing they are. Mrs. Sharma was the best teacher for him. Before enrolling him in preschool I went to every Montessori in McKinney and all others were more focused on either tuition or seemed like daycare. Some parents may like that but I wanted academics to be the focus. I wasn't an easy dad to deal with and my focus was making sure my son was in the best hands. Read More

Oh man.. Where do I start? Applebee Montessori is an amazing school/Daycare! It became our daughter’s 2nd home. The staff, the teachers and the owner are all beautiful, sweet and caring people. This review would not be enough to express how sweet and awesome Miss Brittney is! She loves what she does and it shows. She is dedicated, patient and has a beautiful energy. The kids (and parents) adore her! We feel very lucky that she was our daughter’s 1st teacher and Applebee her 1st school ❤️

There is so much I love about Applebee, where do I start?! We have all three of our daughters enrolled in Applebee and we couldn’t be happier with the decision to enroll them there.Our youngest is 10 months and has been at Applebee since she was 6 months. I was nervous at first being she was so young when we enrolled her, but Miss Jenny has been nothing short of amazing when it comes to our baby girl! She is so sweet and she is so attentive when it comes to our baby girl. Read More

We love Miss Brittany’s class! She is so kind and patient with the kids. When you enter the classroom in the morning, there is calm music and you can tell the kids feel happy and comfortable there. She teaches wonderful lessons and sends updates on how the kids are doing regularly. She’s a very talented teacher and we’re so happy our child can be her class.

Exceptional School! I am incredibly grateful to Mrs. Sangdipta, Yuliya and Britnney for the caring, patient, and supportive approach they bring to the classroom every day. My daughters thrived under their guidance, feeling both valued and encouraged to grow academically and personally.

My kid has been attending Applebee for a few months and we love the teachers, administrators and the school! We appreciate the personalized notes and photos that the teachers regularly share. Parent-Teacher meetings are helpful in collectively setting expectations. The way they setup COVID access controls/ mask mandates/ drop-pickup restrictions/ case communications is commendable. My kid constantly learns many new things every few days leaving us pleasantly surprised during our chats. Overall, a great school for everyone!

We are absolutely thrilled with Applebee Montessori Academy! We have two children there, and they both love going to school. Our older son even asks to go to school on the weekends! We have been amazed at the leaps and bounds we have seen in their learning. The teachers are loving, nurturing, and communicate frequently about our children's learning. The director and leadership staff are top notch. I trust them 100 percent. Read More

Both of my sons attend Applebee and we love it. It’s been a bit tough getting to know the teachers and other parents due to the pandemic but our kids are so happy there, the teachers are wonderful and the facility is very, very clean

We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Applebee. They have been so professional and caring throughout this whole pandemic experience and have put our minds at ease about sending our infant son every day. Parents haven’t been allowed in the building for months in order to maintain cleanliness, all the kids are given temperature checks before entry, all the teachers are always masked, and the whole building

Since day one we have been made very comfortable with our baby attending. Jenny is a wonderful teacher and takes each child's needs very seriously. Each teacher cares and knows everyone who comes in the door. The entire team takes great pride in the education and safety of every child. The facility is new and very clean with excellent facilities for the children. Highly recommend
