There are no specific academic entrance requirements; however, we base admission decisions on many factors, especially your child’s age and suitability for our program.
Please schedule your personal tour of our school. We will be happy to answer your questions and provide additional information about our educational programs.
The process begins with your school tour to visit our school. Following your tour and meeting at our school we invite you to observe one of our classrooms to see how our Montessori teachers interact with our students. You’ll notice how well the children interact and self-direct their activities, sharing with others and learning at their own pace.

If you’re learning about Montessori for the first time, it can be a lot to take in. Here are our answers to questions you might have.
What is the Montessori Method?
The goal of Montessori education at Brazos Learning is to provide education for the whole child. Children are empowered to move through our program curriculums at their own pace, with one-on-one guidance from instructors. Every detail of our indoor and outdoor classroom environments is designed to facilitate holistic, student-driven learning. Teachers are trained to cultivate each student’s strengths, passions, and unique learning styles.
What Is the Science Behind the Montessori Method
Dr. Maria Montessori dedicated decades of her life to developing the Montessori method. She began in 1906 when she was invited to Rome to create an educational facility for disadvantaged children who seemed incapable of completing traditional education.
As an expert in experimental psychology, Dr. Montessori carefully structured her curriculum to allow students to interact with their environment. Through years of research, Dr. Maria Montessori developed a curriculum of unique learning skills that aimed to educate the whole child, beginning during infancy and continuing through early childhood.
Recent research has shown that children who attend Montessori schools are more likely to hit major milestones at an early age, feel a greater sense of community, show signs of improved executive function, and develop better social and emotional skills in early adolescence.
+ Lunch & Snack Policy
Lunches and Snacks at Brazos Learning
We encourage parents to pack their children healthy snacks and lunches each day. Here is a list of snack ideas. Please note that Brazos Learning Montessori School is a nut-free campus.
If you have questions or concerns regarding our snack policies, we encourage you to speak directly with your child’s Montessori classroom lead instructor, submit a contact form, or send an email to email@example.com for more information.
Snacks, Lunches, and Total Education of the Child
At Brazos Learning, even snack and lunchtime offer ample opportunities for children to learn. Brazos Learning students are expected to follow basic etiquette, sanitary, and organizational procedures during allotted snack and mealtimes throughout the day. Our instructors guide students in proper handwashing, food preparation, table manners and healthy eating, and cleanup. These basic skills have a monumental impact on students of all ages.
Purchasing Lunches and Snacks On-Campus
While we intend to offer a comprehensive lunch and snack package to our students in the future, due to concerns with COVID-19, we do not currently offer lunches or snacks for purchase on-campus. The Brazos Learning team will carefully monitor local infection rates and CDC recommendations as we determine when to officially open our cafeteria services to our students and their families. When we determine it is safe to do so, we will notify families of availability and pricing for our snack and lunch programs.
