An Education for Life

Montessori Preschool™ is an award-winning network of boutique, teacher-owned preschools, serving children ages 6 weeks to 6 years.

Our children enjoy hands-on materials to explore new ideas and develop collaboration skills to work well with others. Our school is family owned-and-operated since 1996 – led by an Association Montessori Internationale Directress – and our small class sizes and low teacher-to-student ratios allow personal attention and time to develop quality relationships that last decades.

Our campuses are designed with huge playgrounds featuring large oak trees and ample outdoor space. Our children perform well in Kindergarten and beyond and are known for their leadership skills, global outlook, and empathy.

We believe children have unlimited potential. A true Montessori education develops a child’s inner powers, self-discipline, and concentration, leading to lifelong learning.

Why Choose Us?

😊 We Have Fun!

In our school, learning is social and active. Children organize fun events to celebrate holidays and festivals. Children collaborate with each other or work independently, developing critical social skills for elementary school and life.

🍎 Montessori Teacher Owned-and-Operated

The schools are owned-and-operated by an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Montessori teacher. AMI was founded in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori to maintain the integrity of her life’s work. Montessori teachers are in leadership roles – so learning (not profit) is always first.

🔤 An Early Education for Life

We believe children have unlimited potential – and there’s no better time to educate children than in the early years. Through the Montessori Method, our children not only learn to read, write, and do math and science, but also, more importantly, they learn to socialize, be independent, and concentrate. Our alumni and their experiences are the best reflection of our school.

🌎 A Global Outlook

In the 21st century, children will interact with people from across the globe. We use current events, cultural festivals, and our International Doll of the Month speaker series to spark conversations on culture and geography, and we celebrate the diverse heritage of our community.

🧒🏽 Personal Attention

Our teacher-student ratios are intentionally low to maximize personalized instruction and improve learning outcomes.

🌳 Room to Play

Our campuses have a large playground, with shady trees, for children to learn and play outdoors. We also have covered outdoor spaces for picnics and story time. Our spacious, sun-filled classrooms have attached bathrooms, so children can safely remain in the classrooms.

🔬 STEM Everyday

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is integrated in our classes everyday. STEM is a part of your child’s all-day routine – not just part of a specialized curriculum or a separate room.

🇺🇸 Local Schools for Local Families

We are not a corporate-owned school nor a franchise. Our schools were started in the early 90’s by a family of educators in Houston, Texas. We believe in the effectiveness of small, local family-run schools and personal service.

❤️ Family First

Learning is best when families are involved, and we build lifelong relationships with our parents. Through our engagement programs, parents actively contribute to school activities and events and play leadership roles on our campuses on a way that works for their schedule, at their pace. 

🏫 Kindergarten Ready

Our students do well in elementary school and beyond. Our students typically transition into Gifted and Talented programs and others skip grades. Many exceed state standards in reading and math. Several alumni also successfully compete to earn admission to private schools across Houston and around the world.

Admissions

TUITION

Tuition is competitive with the market and based on program hours. Tuition rates are available for parents who visit our campus. 

WAITING LIST

Siblings of enrolled students and alumni have priority admission. Class sizes are small to maximize learning and quality socialization.  If there are more applicants than spaces, our schools operate on a waiting list.

KINDERGARTEN ADMISSIONS

For students applying for Kindergarten, children must be age 5 before or on September 1.

For families seeking one year of rigorous academic preparation for Kindergarten (a Bridge program), children are accepted on a selective basis. Criteria for admission include parent engagement and commitment, familiarity with Montessori education, current academic progress, and socio-emotional competencies. Upon completing a qualitative assessment – and if accepted – children must begin school at the beginning of the Fall Term.  We recommend children start a Montessori program by age 3.

A Global Outlook

In the 21st century, children will interact with people from across the globe. Our programs and pedagogical practice help young children develop a global outlook by investigating the world, weighing different perspectives, communicating ideas effectively, taking action with an entrepreneurial spirit, and applying an interdisciplinary lens to their views of the world.

Local parents have donated over 120 dolls to our schools to represent their child’s country of origin in our community. We highlight an International Doll of the Month to spark conversations on geography and culture in class and in our wider school community. When children leave our school, they join our rigorous Leadership for Kids experience, where they tackle global challenges and learn to lead in an intercultural world.

Schedule a Visit

Drop by our schools and see Montessori education in action. Tours are available by appointment only, given our desire to provide our families with individual attention and an increasingly high demand for visits. We encourage families to visit in the mornings in order to see children engage in the Montessori environment.

Please let us know if you would like to speak with a current parent or alum.
