About the School
The Montessori School at StarCreek is one of the premiere Montessori schools in the DFW metroplex. At over 35,000 square feet, the school features 17 classrooms as well as numerous rooms dedicated to music, science, technology, gardening, cooking, fine arts and more.
We are firmly committed to Maria Montessori’s approach to learning in our overall program. The Montessori method strives to arouse the child’s interest; to stimulate, and to provide an individualized learning atmosphere. This is the “Prepared Environment” which invites a child to get herself involved and puts her mind in gear. To catch the excitement inherent in discovery, and to know deep down that she did it herself because she felt the need to understand and to conquer a problem, is worth far more to a child’s self-image and development than to respond to never-ending teacher direction.
The main objective of the Montessori School at StarCreek is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.
We strive to develop a positive attitude toward school and learning while assisting children to develop an identity of high self-esteem. Our students learn habits of concentration for lifelong study skills and we foster their abiding curiosity. Students acquire the basic skills necessary for a lifetime of learning through the use of the Montessori materials. Our environment creates the perfect space for children to advance in their habits of initiative and persistence while promoting socially acceptable behavior.
