About Starwood Montessori
Starwood Montessori was established in 2000 in Frisco, Texas. Our school is founded on the basic principles of Italian Dr. Maria Montessori who lived from 1870 to 1952. She developed what ultimately became the Montessori Method based on her scientific observations of these children's ability to absorb knowledge from their surroundings. What was created is a curriculum of tasks and activities within the environment that fulfill the child's inner needs for development, self-awareness, enthusiasm, and concentration.
- Montessori-certified teachers who approach their classrooms with a gentle enthusiasm
- Work together with their assistants to create and maintain a dynamic environment
- Parents are also encouraged to contribute their talents and experiences through: occupational or cultural demonstrations, volunteering in the library, helping with projects
- Designed specifically for young children and meet the strictest standards of health and safety
- A gymnasium/auditorium to accommodate movement education programs and large group activities
- Classrooms designed to allow for plenty of natural light
- Outdoor play and learning spaces; including our greenhouse and gardening projects
We know that Montessori students gain a sense of personal empowerment, a strong work ethic, a love of learning, and a sincere respect for humanity and the world we all share. In short, they become the kind of people who we can trust to lead us capably into the next generation.
Helping today’s children become tomorrow’s shining star.

Our family was first introduced to Starwood Montessori about 3 years ago when we started our oldest son in the toddler program. He is now 3 ½ years old and has transitioned into the Primary program with ease. Our youngest son has just started the toddler program and we could not be more pleased. From our initial meeting with the staff upon starting our oldest son, we had few simple request of the program. To educate, provide structure with learning and most importantly to allow our son to have fun and enjoy school. All of those request have easily been met by the staff and teachers at Starwood and both of our boys love going to school. Our eldest has grown in his learning abilities, independence, confidence and outgoing personality since starting at Starwood. The staff is exceptional. All of the teachers go out of their way to make our family and boys feel welcomed, loved and excited to be at school. The director has been very involved in our family needs and I feel she always has the best interest for both of our boys in mind. I have always felt that I could communicate with her and any of the staff with my concerns and know they would be addressed immediately. The observations/conferences really keep parents up to date on what your child is doing and how they are progressing. The school is a beautiful facility, clean and spacious equipped with a large gym, outdoor play area, greenhouse, computer lab and library. The car pool system in the mornings is great and run flawless, ensuring safety of the kids, quick drop off and a happy start to the day for the kids with the staff always greeting our boys with a smile! The communication among staff is what really makes this school stand out to us. We have had other experiences in the area with programs and Starwood by far exceeds them all. We are so fortunate to have found Starwood for our boys. Excellent School!

Words can not express how wonderful Starwood Montessori has been for my daughter. My daughter started at Starwood when she was two years old. The staff asked me about her personality to be able to place her with a teacher that would best fit her personality. Her teacher has been one of the best teachers I have ever known. I can see how much she loves her students, cares about them, and is a perfect role model for them. I have enjoyed watching my child blossom over the past year with improving her social skills, independence, working in a classroom, and basic life lessons. She has learned so much educationally and talks about what she is learning which has been helpful to practice at home. The staff at Starwood is professional, child centered, personal, warm, and so helpful for both first time parents and their children. The staff is positive and they all know the children well and keep up with how they are in the classroom. The director of the school gets involved with the teachers and parents and takes care of doing what is best for each child (she knows them by name). As my first experience sending my daughter out into the community I could not have asked for a better place than Starwood Montessori. I have and will continue to talk to other parents about how wonderful this program, environment, and staff are for the most important children in their lives.
