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.
Discover the calm, peaceful environment of a Montessori classroom, where children work together to explore, learn, and grow. See daily experiences of life at our schools, as the authentic Montessori Method guides children through self-direction and self-discipline toward self-discovery, as they prepare for the future.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.
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:
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.
Education: Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, Master of Education
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!
Certifications: CPR, First Aid
I firmly believe the Montessori Method is the best education. I love the diversity in our school and the amazing cultures that our families share with us every year. I get so excited when I see how much the children grow and thrive.
