"Our son has flourished in the Montessori environment. He has surprised us multiple times by talking about something he has learned that his big brother just learned in an Honors class in High School!"

Welcome to Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy!

The mission at Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy is to provide preschool and elementary school children an educational environment that cultivates a lifetime love of learning. The central idea in the Montessori philosophy of education is that children already carry within themselves the person they will become and they must be given freedom to become their best selves. Our Montessori teachers prepare stimulating learning environments and direct activities, but it is up to the children to learn patterns of concentration and thoroughness so that they may become confident, competent learners. The Montessori approach to early education introduces children to the joy of learning at an early age!

Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy offers childcare and early education programs for ages 6 weeks – 6 years old at Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy, Gilbert in Arizona and Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy, Grisby in Houston, TX.

We have a 3rd location in Houston, Texas called Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy, Dairy Ashford that also offers Lower Elementary (Ages 6-9) and Upper Elementary (Ages 9-12). This school doesn’t offer an infant program and is for ages 18 months – 12 years old.
