Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Montessori of Las Colinas in Irving, TX where we offer a quality Montessori environment to children ages six weeks to six years. My name is Mary “Bernadean” Dixon and I am the director.

Our school was founded in 1987 and offers educational opportunities for children in a multi-aged classroom. Our prepared learning environments provide a wide range of quality materials in areas of sensorial, practical life, language, cultural studies and Spanish, among others. In addition to class settings, students engage in problem solving experiences in the areas of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.

Each of our infant, toddler and primary classrooms are led by a certified Montessori teacher and an assistant. We strongly encourage parent participation and host family events throughout the year to bring our school community together.

Please schedule a tour of Montessori of Las Colinas to experience everything our authentic Montessori school has to offer.

Here's what people have to say

4.6 out of 5 stars
We love this school. The staff makes us so comfortable with our decision to send our daughter here. Every teachers loves her so much and she is thriving! I didn’t really expect all this from daycare/school but I just love it. Thank you and keep up all the amazing work y’all do!
I think this school is fabulous. My child is learning at a rapid pace and I am in awe of how much they really care about the children.
The teachers and staff are so wonderful and we love how happy our child is here.
My son loves to go school. Teachers are very caring and very good. School atmosphere also very good. Happy to send my kid here.
Overall the school is good. Mrs. B is great. Mrs. Chorrito is awesome too. these two women treat each child like their own.
Great place for kids.My son is so happy to go to school each day. I am impressed with how much he learns. He comes home every day and wants to explore more about what he's learned during the day. The school is very multicultural and there are families from all over the world. I love the teachers and staff, they are caring and friendly.
Staff is professional and easy to work with. Most importantly, they love my baby. I know he is learning at school but knowing exactly what will help me reinforce at home.
We love this school. The most important thing is how our child is cared for and she is cared for so well. We love the teachers and the other kids. Everyone is so nice and we feel like it’s a very safe environment for our child.
We've a had a great experience at MLC. The care and concern expressed for the well-being and development of your child into his/her best self is evident, and so appreciated as a parent. I really feel like I'm parenting in partnership with the MLC staff and that makes a world of difference.
I like the constant interaction of the parents with the teachers and management. And I like the fact that the teachers empathize with parents and the children. I feel comfortable having my daughter in this facility.

Montessori of Las Colinas is where I marvel at the growth of our children, as this is where life-long learning begins. I have served children and their families since 1971 as a classroom teacher, counselor, assistant principal and principal. I love being a part of the child's learning experience!
