BAMH is accredited and supervised by the Association of Montessori International (AMI). This affiliation is reviewed yearly and can be maintained only through the school’s strict observance of the education principles set forth by Dr. Montessori. As one of only three AMI schools in Houston, we offer the world-renowned authentic Montessori education to children from the ages of three through middle school. If you are considering other “Montessori” schools in the area, especially for pre-K and Kindergarten, we encourage you to ask about their certification.
Bay Area Montessori House, Inc is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. As such it’s primary focus is serving the community with authentic Montessori education for children. An Executive Board provides decisions on school policies and direction. Tuition provides the primary source of funds for the school, but the school also accepts tax deductible contributions.
Children Education Structure
There are three school branches needed to provide a child’s education: the faculty,the administration and the child’s family .In order to assure that your child receives the best possible education, all three branches of the school must work together. In order for each branch to offer its strengths to the other two, the following is required:
The faculty will provide a Christian Montessori education for each child appropriate to his/her development. They will provide opportunities for the educational growth of the parents in the Montessori Method (information nights, conferences and outside speakers, as needed).
The administrative director will handle the day-to-day operations of the school. This includes interviewing new prospective families, providing parenting classes, and maintaining a Montessori library for parents and community interest. All student activities, classroom procedures and curriculum activities are the responsibility of the Educational Director. The Executive Board, always seeking God’s direction, forms the policies and procedures of the school.
The family who entrusts the educational needs of their children to the school will seek out information from the school by attending all informational meetings and conferences, by reading and applying Parent Handbook suggestions, and by participating in school volunteer committees where interested.
