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.
Our authentic Montessori experience is enhanced by a STEAM Studio.
Featuring hands-on learning stations for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math, the studio is available to Primary program students at least once a week.
Ask the school director for additional details.
Elective programs allow Montessori students to learn by exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future—while giving your family more free time on evenings and weekends.
We offer Cranium Kids, ballet, soccer and gymnastics.

Montessori of Las Colinas is definitely my home away from home. This 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 early on!

My experience at Montessori began in 2006 with the toddler through primary classrooms. I firmly believe the Montessori Method is the best education. I love the diversity in our school and the amazing cultures that our families bring and share with us every year. I get so excited when I see how much the children grow and thrive.

I really enjoy working with babies as young as six weeks old because it is so rewarding to observe their growth. I believe that a Montessori education prepares children to be responsible, independent, and respectful. I also believe it sets them up to excel in their later education.

Working in the infant room is a very rewarding experience. I love being able to see our babies grow as they move up to the next classroom. When I’m not in the classroom, I can be found spending time with my beautiful daughter.

The most rewarding part about working at Montessori is being able to be part of a child’s growth early on. It is extremely rewarding to help an infant learn how to hold a bottle and assist them in taking their very first steps. Each infant holds a special place in my heart.

I enjoy sharing my passion in arts and crafts with the toddlers. I love reading stories and expanding children’s knowledge through genres. Informing parents about their child’s growth and seeing the smile on their face encourages me to continue to be the best I can be.

I enjoy watching and helping children grow to become self-motivated learners. I love helping them develop skills that they can use the rest of their life. I believe each child is unique and must be allowed to mature at their own rate in their own way.

My passion and belief in the Montessori method led me to be an owner of a Montessori school for a number of years. Working with children is such a rewarding challenge that I truly enjoy. In my spare time, I am a Zumba instructor at LA Fitness.
