Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Greatwood Montessori School in Sugar Land, TX. My name is Lisa and I am the director. I have been a part of the Montessori community since 2001.

We offer infant, toddler and primary programs for students two to six years of age. We just opened our new STEAM Studio where children will have weekly hands-on experiences to further explore the subjects of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.

Our school boasts a very large outdoor environment for the children to run, play and explore. We also have bikes and a basketball court for the children to play and ride, as well as other recreational learning tools. 

We have been serving the communities of Greatwood, Riverpark, Telfair and New Territory since 1999. If you are interested in learning more about a Montessori education, I encourage you to schedule a tour. I would love to show you everything our Greatwood Montessori School has to offer, including our new partial-week program! 

​Montessori Programs by Age

Make. Do. Tinker. Think.

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.

  • Science lab equipment will include items such as salt, vinegar, popsicle sticks, glue, clay, straws, etc., for children to perform simple experiments
  • Technology learning experiences will be highlighted by tablets and educational apps
  • Art studio activities will incorporate natural elements (such as leaves) and will feature various modes of art; for example, pendulum painting

Ask the school director for additional details.

Electives Offered

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 Tot's Sports, Spanish, yoga, soccer and music/piano.

Years Experience: 11

Working with children using the Montessori Method is very rewarding for me. In our classroom, we provide developmentally appropriate instruction to meet the individual needs of each student. My primary goal is to ensure each student has learned the life skills necessary to advance to the next level of developmental independence.

Erendria Hernandez , Assistant Directress

Years Experience: 5

I believe Montessori education helps develop the child’s brain and mind at an early age and allows children to develop independence. Montessori also encourages them to reach their true potential. I enjoy working with children because they are full of happiness and just to see them smile makes me feel happy. I am a proud mother of two successful daughters and a happy grandmother of five grandchildren.
