Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Montessori at the Courtyard in Bedford, TX. My name is Anne-Kathrin Storch and I am the administrative director of this campus where we offer a high-quality authentic Montessori education.

Here, your child will be a part of a classroom community that recognizes every child’s uniqueness; therefore, children are allowed to make choices and develop at their own paces. Your child will experience a well-rounded environment where he or she can explore and learn about subjects such as math, science, reading, zoology and more. 

We accept children ages six weeks to six years. Classrooms have mixed age ranges where younger children are mentored by older children and older children are given opportunities to become leaders. We also focus on positive social development where children learn how to solve peer conflicts, become more aware of the needs of others and learn to respect boundaries.

Our school encourages family participation and we always welcome parents to visit. We also host several family events throughout the year.

Schedule a tour today to see the magic that takes place every day at Montessori at the Courtyard! The optimal time to observe the Montessori work time is between 9-11 a.m.

Growing up in Germany, I have always loved the natural approach of an early childhood education. About five years ago, I discovered Montessori and completely fell in love with it. The early childhood years are extremely important and we are proud to be able to be such a big influence in each child’s and parent’s life.

I have worked in child care since I was 18 and spent the first three years working with infants. I decided to further my love with children by attending school and majoring in child development. I came to Montessori at the Courtyard as an intern and never left. Burrito Day is my favorite day of the year!

I love working with children and teaching is my passion. My favorite part about working at Montessori is preparing the environment for the class and then observing them working with the materials. Every day I learn something new from these children. When children accomplish something, big or small, I feel accomplished myself.

When I came to Montessori at the Courtyard, I started as an assistant teacher in the Toddler II classroom. I enjoyed working as an assistant so much that when a lead position opened up with the Pre-Primary class, I jumped for it. I have a dog named Duke and a guinea pig named Penelope. I love traveling and spending time with my family and nephew.
