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.

Starwood Montessori School has been a wonderful experience for our entire family. We are starting our fifth year at the school and we continue to be extremely happy. Our two boys are completely different both academically and socailly and yet they both thrive due to the time and attention the director and staff give them. Our older son has always been bright, independent and inquisitive. His teachers kept him engaged and challenged. He also loved being a mentor for the younger classmates. Our younger son is shy and diagnosed with a speech delay. The director, his teachers, and staff all assisted in the diagnosis (including emotional support for me) and made sure he was where he needs to be. He has made great improvements and will be up to par soon. The knowledge, experience, and nuturing staff has been priceless. The school has become like family to us and we would highly recommend it to anyone.

Starwood Montessori School has been a great find for our family. Our twins started at Starwood at age 3. The wonderful teachers at the school made their very first school experience a memorable one! Our children flourished, both socially and academically, under the caring guidance of the knowledgeable teachers! After 2 years in this rich learning environment, we moved our children to public school due to personal reasons. Our children still reminisce fondly about Starwood every time we drive by. They talk about their great teachers, friends, and about all the work they accomplished while at Starwood. We highly recommend Starwood as a wonderful school where professional staff and administrators are very supportive and passionate about doing the best for our children!

Best decision we made for our children! Both of my daughters attended Starwood Montessori School from age 2 through kindergarten. They stayed through their kindergarten year because the education they were receiving at this school was well beyond anything they would have received in a traditional kindergarten classroom. My daughters now attend private school in Dallas, and are happy, confident, well-rounded, and academically way above the curve. The teachers and staff at Starwood are knowledgeable, professional, caring, and take an active interest in educating every single child to their fullest potential. I would recommend this school to anyone seeking an exceptional Montessori experience for their children.
