Welcome to Northwest Montessori

Northwest Montessori House of Children is a premier Montessori school in North Central Austin. We have provided a quality Montessori education to children aged 18 months to 6 years for over thirty years. Our teachers dutifully follow the Montessori Method developed by Maria Montessori, and our preschool upholds the high standards of a preeminent Montessori program.

From its founding in 1984, under the direction of Ms. Shireen De Silva, Northwest Montessori House of Children has been privileged to witness the growth and development of over a thousand students and watch as they continue their education with confidence in their own abilities and potential. Over the years, we have expanded to include four campuses with students ranging from 18 months to 6 years old under the guidance of over twenty dedicated and passionate teachers. At Northwest Montessori, we whole-heartedly believe that a school is a family and that our children are best educated by a community of students, parents, and faculty. We intentionally keep the school environment intimate and the class sizes small. Our classrooms are fully equipped with time-tested Montessori materials and educational tools, and each of our campuses has a large, fully shaded playground. We utilize the Montessori method of education, which aids in the accelerated development of your child, further enhancing his or her knowledge and self-esteem. The Montessori method encourages all children to develop their own skills at a pace they set and is rooted in a core belief that education should not only impart knowledge, but must always strive to unlock human potential.
