"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world." - Dr. Maria Montessori
Accreditation by the American Montessori Society is an affirmation that a school is implementing best practices in Montessori education, as well as in areas of health and safety, finance, and administration. It affirms that a school represents the gold standard of Montessori education.
- Not all schools that are members of AMS are accredited.
- The decision to undergo AMS accreditation is voluntary.
- Accredited schools are validated by independent teams of evaluators as meeting rigorous standards of excellence developed by AMS.
- The accreditation process typically takes 18 months to 2 years.
Accreditation through the American Montessori Society provides guidance, empowerment, and high ideals to help a school community interpret and implement rigorous standards of Montessori education.
It is a signal of a school’s commitment to high quality Montessori education, and the highest level of recognition a Montessori school can achieve.
Accreditation by the American Montessori Society is a rewarding, multi-year process that requires dedicated focus and input from the entire school community. Petite Maison Montessori is undergoing the process of AMS accreditation and we are on Pathway 6.
Our school is conveniently located at Aliana, FM 1464 serving the Aliana/Richmond communities.

Why Montessori Schools?
The Montessori Method nurtures order, coordination, concentration, and independence in children from the moment they enter the classroom. Classroom design, materials, and daily routines support the student’s emerging self-regulation—the ability to educate oneself, and to think about what one is learning—from toddlers through adolescents. The sequence of Montessori lessons aligns well, and in many cases exceeds, state learning standards, ensuring that children are introduced to complex learning concepts through hands-on experiences that leads to deep understanding.
The Montessori curriculum is intentionally grouped into 3-year cycles, rather than broken out into year-by-year expectations for student learning. This respects the fact that children develop and master academic topics at different speeds, and that in reality, children often work in particular content areas in spurts. The teacher supports the child’s growth through all areas of the curriculum to ensure that he or she is exposed to the full sequence of lessons in each area and to provide support and new challenge as needed
The Toddler Classroom at Petite Maison consists of children ages 18 months to 35 months with a 3 and 5 day program, either half day or full day. In this classroom, children engage in social experiences, self-eating and table habits, toilet learning, and independence. We also prepare them for introductory concepts in Language, Math, Sensorial, Practical Life, Art, and Music.
At Petite Maison, the Primary classrooms range in age from 3 to 6 years old. We offer half day or full day programs, 5 days a week. In our Primary Classrooms are divided into 5 areas practical life, sensorial, math, science, and language.
Language: Language emphasis on vocabulary building. It begins when the child enters the classroom for the first time.
Petite Maison is an AMS-affiliated Montessori school committed and passionate about using the Montessori principles to create the optimal learning environment for your child. As every child is different and has a unique quality of their own, Montessori education is a child-centered approach that has proven time and time again to give children a thorough and meaningful education. At Petite, we offer a strong academic curriculum in our beautiful, open and spacious environment that challenges and encourages the children to self-direct their learning with the guidance of certified faculty.
We aim to provide an outstanding and authentic Montessori environment as per the guidelines of The American Montessori Society (AMS) to cater to the child’s developmental needs and follow their pace. In addition to academic progress, we strive to foster in our children the lifelong characteristic of peace, intrinsic discipline, love of learning, social skills, independence, and genuine curiosity. We emphasize timeless life skills, such as problem solving, integrity, grace and courtesy, and self-expression. Our children work hard to develop the knowledge and the skills to care for themselves, their community, and their environment and we are here to guide them along the path.
Every day it is an honor and opportunity to watch children grow into individual, self-reliant and confident human beings, who are bursting with knowledge, curiosity, imagination, and strong personality of their own. I feel amazed and inspired by the power and potential of each child and I am proud to be a part of this process.
Here at Petite Maison, we understand that every child is capable of so much more than what they are often given credit for because we observe them grow every day and we believe in their potential to succeed in whatever path they choose. Imagine a child who is encouraged to explore and make discoveries via channeling their potential and who grows up to be a capable, engaging and confident adult. That is the kind of child we hope to foster and guide here at Petite. In other words, we are here to help shape incredible minds who just might one day change the world.
Please come and see the magic for yourself.
