Welcome to Montessori of Las Colinas in Irving, TX! We offer an authentic Montessori environment to children ages six weeks to six years. My name is Mary “Bernadean” and I am the Administrative Director.
Our school was founded in 1987 and offers quality 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.
We offer Infant, Toddler and Primary programs. Our Primary classroom is led by a certified Montessori teacher and an assistant.
We take extreme care to maintain our safe and healthy school environment. We have coded entry doors and staff certified in CPR as well as first aid. Regular wellness checks are conducted throughout the day and all staff and parents who enter the school are required to wear masks. We've strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices including more hand washing, and frequent cleaning and sanitizing surfaces and items in classrooms.
We understand parents concern of not being able to see their children in the Montessori Classroom environment, see are excited to soon offer Watch Me Grow live streaming for parents! Parents can watch their children in the classroom from their phone or other electronic devices. We also have Montessori Compass App to track your child’s academic progress and a glimpse of their day! It includes photos, trackers, lesson plans, parent/teacher conference forms and more.
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 making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.
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!
