MontessoriX is a series of curated extracurricular classes by Montessori Preschool™ for Montessori students. Classes vary by location.


Our chess classes – led by The Knight School of Houston – utilize music, humor, games, dancing, and puppet shows to introduce young children to this classic game of strategy. Children play chess for Mardi Gras beads, compete weekly for one of 20 brightly-colored silicone wristbands, and look forward each week to diverse daily activities. Children report the class to  be one of theory most favorite parts of their week. Parents are also fond of the developmentally-targeted, infectiously-fun thinking activities and find them compelling.


In collaboration with Soccer Shots, Children learn basic soccer skills; character development; and coordination, balance and agility on the field.  Students play fun games with an experienced coach and win fun prizes. This is ideal for students currently enrolled in soccer or wish to explore soccer further.


This course is offered by Ballet Center of Houston, which has trained dancers in Houston for over 22 years. Students are playfully introduced to French Ballet terminology, age-appropriate techniques and learn about motor skills, musicality and creative thinking.  Student learning culminates in an annual performance for friends and family. The instructor is a former professional Ballerina with the Atlanta Ballet and Charleston Ballet Theatre, and your child could continue ballet training through 12th grade and beyond with Ballet Center of Houston.


All courses are on our campus. Registration, payment and scheduling are done with each partner separately – and not with Montessori Preschool. For logistics questions, the school may direct you to our Partner. Classes vary by campus.
