Southampton Montessori School Tour

Carolyn Means - Friday, July 27, 2018

The campus of Southampton Montessori School is a little gem tucked in the neighborhood surrounding Rice Village - a sprawling collection of shaded cottages on both sides of Robinhood at Morningside.

The school is a Houston Montessori institution that fostered the growth of many of our finest Montessori schools. I have worked with numerous Southampton children over the fourteen years of my practice when families are looking for the next school after their child is ready to leave the 3-6 year class. Montessori children are already lovers of work, able to focus, and possess a strong foundation in reading and math, so they transition well into traditional programs.

The charm of Southampton is immediately evident as one enters the office with its soft pink and white colors and charming decor. Each classroom is well furnished with Montessori materials.  Children were busy with practical life activities, on task alone on their rugs, or having a lesson in small groups. The large playground features a darling playhouse, huge climbing structure, plus a swimming pool that is the hit of the summer camp. Southampton also has a lovely gym with hoops and a shiny floor to serve the day and after-school program.

Children from several public and private schools come after school by bus to Southampton as well as in the summer. The teachers are certified in Montessori methods, and this is not always the case in "Montessori" schools. The only drawback to this wonderful school is the long waiting list for the 2-year old class. Right now, the children get places according to the date they are registered, so consider getting on the list when your child is an infant so you have a choice when your child is ready to begin school.
