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

We cannot thank you enough for the love and guidance given to Kaylen during her time spent at the school.  You have provided an environment that has allowed her to grow and blossom.  Kaylen has really enjoyed her time with you and the relationships that have been built will last forever.  She loves Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield and her experiences there have helped to shape her character in a very positive way.

We had enrolled our girls in another “Learning Center” and soon realized this was not the proper placement for Cami.  Although it was a nurturing environment, her classroom did not meet her needs educationally, and we knew we needed to do what was in the best interest of our child.  I knew without a shadow of a doubt that we made the right decision when our daughter came home [from Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield]and began to name the bones in a skeleton.

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. 

Morgan has amazed us every day with her knowledge, imagination, and attitude.  She has something to share daily that exceeds all of our expectations.  We appreciate the patriotism, cultural studies, the artwork, the love of music and the social skills that you have taught her.  She truly looked forward to coming to school everyday.  As a parent, I can’t imagine feeling more comfortable anywhere else.
