Our Montessori school in Sugar Land, Texas, has largely been influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach—a pedagogy highlighting the importance of a learner-centered and experiential learning method.
At our primary Montessori in Texas, we utilize the Reggio Emilia approach’s principles in our everyday curriculum. Children are seen as competent, curious, and capable learners, having their own interests and ideas. We respect these qualities and allow them to guide our immersive learning environments. The environment as a “third teacher,” a primary principle of the approach, plays an integral role in this process.
Our Montessori programs in Texas carefully and intentionally integrate the approach for each age group, including our youngest learners. Specifically, for little ones, the approach concentrates on establishing a secure, loving relationship with caring adults.
This strategy creates a trusting atmosphere where infants can explore and discover their world. We ensure the environment is conducive to their development and interaction, enabling them to grow at their own pace and meet all crucial developmental milestones with assurance and joy.
We believe in the importance of promoting preschoolers’ academic skills in a comprehensive way that encourages their cognitive, physical, emotional, and social development. Our teaching philosophy extends beyond conventional academic teachings—it involves developing life skills, problem-solving abilities, social etiquette, and a deep-seated love for learning. Our fundamental belief is that these combined skills will equip our students to become future learners.
