What age will my child start to write and read?

Every child is different. At our school, most children start to read by age 3 ½.

Does my child need to bring a snack?

Nope! We serve nutritious snacks twice a day with lemonade or milk. Every classroom has a refrigerated water fountain, so your child can have water whenever they like.

Do you offer extracurricular activities?

Yes, we have an array of extracurriculars for ages 4 to 6 years. Contact us for our latest schedule.

What do your alumni do?

We have over 800 Alumni across Texas and around the world. From a 12-time published author to a Biomedical Engineering major at Rice University, we’re very proud of our alumni!

When can my child start school?

Students start at age 18 months at our school. Our programs serve students ages 18 months to 6 years.

What time does your school open?

Our hours are 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM.

How do children transfer from a Montessori environment into traditional public school?

Children in a Montessori program transfer smoothly into traditional public school. Some are even ahead of their peers academically, socially, and emotionally.

Does my child need to be potty trained?

Students in the Primary and Kindergarten programs must be fully potty trained, so they can take advantage of our learning opportunities.  By 2 ½, potty-trained students transition to the Primary class.

Is it true that the Montessori approach is very structured?

Totally false!  It’s the opposite, actually.  The Montessori approach encourages students to freely explore their interests. We do have simple ground rules to ensure safety in the classroom.

What are Master Classes?

Master Classes are a curated course series in art, music, and Spanish for our Primary students. Students attend each class once a week, every week. The cost is included in your tuition.

Do children play outside?

Yup!  We have a ½ acre playground and two covered patios, so children can enjoy the outdoors – even on hot or rainy Houston days.

Where do children go after Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield?

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, including Kinkaid, The Village School, the British School, and nearby Christian and Charter schools.

How do parents engage in your school?

We believe parent engagement is critical for enhancing the school community.  From reading a story to being a Mama Bear (our version of a homeroom mom), we like to work with each parent to find the right level of engagement.
