Our Montessori Educational Programs

Education Personalized For Your Child

Hill Country Montessori School follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, a physician, anthropologist, and internationally renowned child educator. Born in Chiaravalle, Italy in 1870, Montessori devoted her life to helping all children reach their natural potential. 

The first Casa Dei Bambini, “Children’s House,” was opened in 1907. The program was based on Montessori’s observations that children learn best in a multi-age setting, filled with developmentally appropriate materials. Montessori also believed that all learning comes through the senses. This structure provides experiences that contribute to the development of self-motivated and independent learners.

Our AMS accredited, self-paced classrooms will place an emphasis on your child’s holistic development, helping them develop internal fulfillment, a strong academic foundation, and social connection throughout life. Discover our Montessori programs below and why these classroom methods work.
