Why Maria's Montessori?

Maria Montessori House of West Plano is a learning community composed of children, their families and a dedicated staff. Our program is based on love and respect for all members of the community. Our primary goal is to help our students reach their full potential in all aspects of their development. Through close cooperation between parents and teachers, the children gradually gain the level of comfort required to separate from their parents without the anxiety often associated with their first preschool experience. A trust develops between teachers, parents and children which facilitates the healthy ground development of all members of the learning community.

Our approach to education is based on the philosophy and methods of Maria Montessori, the first Italian female physician who founded the first Montessori school in Rome in 1907. Dr. Montessori believed that the goal of the educational process was to cultivate a child’s natural desire to learn. Learn more about our philosophy here.

Family is one of the most important, if not the most important thing in our lives. Taking time every day to appreciate your loved ones for all that they do helps us to reconnect as a family. For that reason, Our school provides a carefully planned, stimulating environment which helps children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.
