As we’ve mentioned before, we believe education is of the utmost importance in child development. Too often, however, education is restricted to mean one specific type of learning, in one specific type of classroom, with one specific set of goals. At Montessori schools , we try not to pigeonhole a child’s worth by the standards set by other learning institutions.
Montessori schools believe that education should not be limited to the standard classroom model largely adhered to in schools today. By breaking the mold of what an education “should” look like and what school “should” feel like, we have been able to create a learning environment that has been proven to be effective time and time again.
Montessori schools will work with your child to not only teach him or her the curriculum, but to also teach enjoyment of the learning process. Your child will develop an appreciation for learning that will last a lifetime. We will also encourage your child to consider how what he or she learns affects his or her life in all its facets.
Montessori schools find the irreplaceable value in a hands-on learning environment. Not only will your child look forward to going to school, but he or she will also learn the importance of hands on experience in the real world.
Montessori schools are designed to work with your child on an individual basis to help him or her reach their greatest potential. Teachers are specially trained to encourage your child to seek learning opportunities on their own time and desire to be the best he or she can be. Montessori schools will work with your child, so that your child will want to be the best child—and adult—he or she can be.
Finally, Montessori schools will work to engage the entire family in your child’s learning experience. Parent involvement in education is key, and we will work to involve you in every step of your child’s education.
If you think a Montessori school might be the right option for your child, then be sure to contact us today at The Montessori School.

It is a Texas State law that all students age four years and up must be tested on a yearly basis for hearing and vision. We offer this testing at The Montessori School as well as optional academic testing; however, you always have the option to take your child to your own physician for these tests.
Our school is required to keep documentation that every child over the age of four has had these tests. If you are not going to have your child tested for vision and hearing at our school, we need this documentation by April 15th . For more information or any questions, call 972-727-2800.
Parents the world over can agree that certain components in a child’s life are fundamental to their future as a successful adult. Keeping your child clothed, fed, and sheltered are some of the most basic needs a parent can provide, but parental duties go much deeper than that. Keeping your child safe and protected from harm and healthy are also of the utmost importance. There is one extremely important piece of the puzzle we have yet to mention—education.
Choosing the right school for your child is dependent on several factors, but at the end of the day, it is about encouraging your child to develop and grow in an exciting, nurturing environment. For these reasons, we have put together a list of three reasons to consider sending your child to a Montessori school .
1. “Teach by teaching, not by correcting.”
“Teach by teaching, not by correcting,” is the guiding statement behind Montessori teaching methods. Your child will not be discouraged by bad grades and marked up papers. Rather, Montessori teachers focus on respecting your child and their strengths and create individualized projects to encourage their talents and strengthen their weaknesses.
2. Representative of different and effective teaching methods.
Montessori schools emphasize learning with all five senses, rather than just listening and reading. Children are presented with numerous different activity options to learn and hone their strengths in an environment that is engaging.
3. Smaller class sizes, specially trained teachers
Montessori classes are kept to a size of thirty or under, and the teachers are specially trained to teach each individual student according to their learning styles. Training includes education in a classroom setting, as well as hours doing hands on practice with the children.
If you have any more questions about Montessori schools and think one might be the right option for you and your child, then be sure to contact us today at The Montessori School . (972) 727-2800
