3 R’s Plus Montessori School

The 3 R's Plus is a private Montessori school, located in the Houston Heights. We are a family owned and operated school serving nearly 50 students annually. We are open year round, Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Established in August 1985, our school was designed to meet the needs of children between the ages of 1 and 6 years; including kindergarten. Our mission is to expose students and their families to a method of education which will develop a lifelong love of learning, an inner discipline and the ability to reason. Each child develops at his or her own pace and our Montessori classrooms and work are thoughtfully curated to help each child find the joy of discovery, self-confidence and sense of accomplishment each day.

We provide care in a loving, nurturing and routine oriented environment. Our school is conducive to freedom and spontaneity because ethics of peace, order, and respect are upheld in the classroom community.

The 3 R’s stands for rules, routine and responsibility. Research shows that giving children boundaries, offering a stable routine and encouraging responsible choice making sets them up for long-term success.

What is Montessori?

What is Montessori education? For more than a century now, the child-focused approach that Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, developed for educating children has been transforming schools around the globe.

As soon as you enter a classroom, you know that something different is afoot. Montessori classrooms are immediately recognizable. You will see children working independently and in groups, often with specially designed learning materials; deeply engaged in their work; and respectful of themselves and their surroundings.

The Montessori Method fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development—cognitive, emotional, social, and physical. Montessori education is student-led and self-paced but guided, assessed, and enriched by knowledgeable and caring teachers, the leadership of their peers, and a nurturing environment.

Within the community of a multi-age classroom—designed to create natural opportunities for independence, citizenship, and accountability—children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry. Individual students follow their own curiosity at their own pace, taking the time they need to fully understand each concept and meet individualized learning goals.

Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply, and make connections, Montessori students grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners and citizens, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity. What better outcome could you wish for your children?
