  • Montessori-Certified Guides

    Montessori-certified guides (teachers) encourage the formation of a close-knit community which emphasizes kindness, personal responsibility, exploration and cooperation.

  • Classroom Setting

    The classroom is arranged according to subject area and children move freely around the room. Subjects include: practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, science, art, and cultural studies.

  • Multi-Age Classrooms

    Pebblecreek students remain in the same primary class for the three-year cycle, moving from youngest to oldest from observer to leader. During this time, they form strong relationships with peers of all ages and with their guide. Upon completion of the primary cycle, children are promoted to first grade.

  • Passion for Learning

    Students are exposed to an amazing amount of knowledge in the Montessori classroom, and often excel academically beyond what is usually thought possible for children their age. Students learn to independently manage their time and develop a focused, self-motivated work ethic.

  • Classroom Studies

    The Montessori approach to the cultural subjects is based on the interrelationships of the earth, the animals and plants, and the people who inhabit the earth. Therefore, the subjects of history, geography and science are not taught as individual subjects but as connected parts of a whole. 

    • Integrated Cultural Subjects
    • Creative Movement
    • Robust Fine Arts
    • Engaging Spanish Program
  • Cultural Subjects

    Pebblecreek Montessori students study cultural curriculum that includes experiments, maps, timelines, models and other learning materials. The goal is for the child to begin to answer what Dr. Montessori deemed the important questions: Who am I? Where do I come from? Why am I here?

  • Creative Movement

    Primary  Program students participate in activities to improve their coordination and balance. They learn to explore the world of creatively expressing themselves with their bodies. Through dance, students build confidence, self-esteem, and respect for those around them.

  • Library

    PCM’s goal is to empower each student to take ownership of their learning experience. Students have a class visit to the school library each week to explore the world through an independent pursuit of information which cultivates a passion for learning, an appreciation of literature, and the skills to use information effectively.

  • Physical Education

    Pebblecreek Montessori School students participate in weekly P.E. where they are taught the importance of physical fitness and encouraged to achieve their individual potential. Team games are introduced with the focus on teamwork and the development of healthy attitudes to both winning and losing.

  • Montessori Classes Nurture Your Child's Passion for the Fine Arts

  • Fine Arts Program

    These progressing children continue to explore different types of music from all over the world. Music is an important part of Montessori teaching and can set moods for activity or rest while also providing a source of rhythm to help children develop their motor control. Primary children continue to play instruments regularly and learn more about the theory of music, like notes and keys. We developed our program to grow with each age group and ensure that students are continuing to grow in their expertise.

    Foreign Language

    Pebblecreek believes that education should spread beyond our expected boundaries and give children more opportunities to experience the world. One of our Primary Program classes is known as the “Bluebonnet Room”, utilized to create a complete Spanish immersion environment. The room is great for children who are learning Spanish as well as those who are developing English as their second language. The change in atmosphere is timed to correspond to an age of serious word absorption and language development. Mrs. Wilcox’s Touch Spanish program doesn’t just teach children lists of vocabulary words; it engages them in conversational lessons which teach them how to form proper sentences and communicate effectively.

    Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.
