Learning for Life

Why Us?

ParentBanner1

We Have Fun!

In our school, learning is social and active. Children work together daily, developing critical social skills for elementary school and for life.

Room to Play

We have a ½ acre playground, with shady oak trees, for children to learn and play.  We also have covered patios for picnics and outdoor story time. Our spacious, sun-filled classrooms have attached bathrooms and refrigerated water fountains.

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 in one class and part of a specialized curriculum.

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.

Families First

Learning is best when families are involved, and we build relationships with our parents.  Through our Mama Bear program, parents actively contribute to school activities and events.

Teacher Owned-and-Operated

The school is owned-and-operated by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Montessori teachers. Teachers are in leadership roles – so learning (not profit) is always first.

Kindergarten Ready

Our students do well in elementary school. Our students typically transition into Gifted and Talented programs and others skip grades.  Many alumni successfully compete to earn admission to private schools across Houston.

An Early Education

We believe children have unlimited potential – and there’s no better time to educate children than in the early years. The Montessori approach develops reading, writing, and math skills as well as skills in independence, concentration, and grit.

What Parents Say

My name is Makenzie Ferguson and I attended this Montessori school as a toddler through Pre-K. My brother and I (who also attended this school) have attended Langham Creek High School, and I will be graduating Summa Cum Laude with honor cords for the Social Studies honor society, Rho Kappa. I have received a full ride scholarship to the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and will be enrolled in the engineering program. I hope to graduate as a #MechanicalEngineer and work at an amusement park. I would not be able to get where I am today without the strong foundation I received at this school. Thank you.

When Joseph started at Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield, he was a very shy, timid little boy.  He was not outgoing and did not use his voice much.  After three short years, including Kindergarten, he has become an outgoing, confident boy who is not afraid to kindly speak his mind. 

Adam has enjoyed every minute of the three years he has spent with his teachers.  We are grateful for the solid foundation you have provided Adam.  He is eager and ready to take the next step and start Kindergarten.  Words cannot express our gratitude for the love and care he has thrived in for the last several years.

I remember the first time Taylor looked at me and said she waned to go to school, or the first time I heard her counting in Spanish or when she said my teacher is my friend.  All these things and so many more let us know we made the right choice when we brought Taylor here.  Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield was just what she needed to help her become…Taylor, the verbal, vocal wonder she is.
