A small school with a big heart.
Klein-Spring Montessori is a family-owned Montessori school for children ages 16 months through preschool, located in the heart of Spring, TX. We’ve been serving the daycare and preschool needs of Spring, TX families for over 35 years.
What are the biggest differences between a Montessori School and a traditional daycare or preschool?
One of the first differences you may notice is that our classrooms include children of multiple ages. This is fundamental to the Montessori method. Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that children learn better from their peers. The youngest children in class look up to the oldest children and learn from them. The older children enjoy being the role models and teaching the younger classmates.
As the children grow and develop, they are able to do more and in time, the youngest become the oldest in the class and take over the role of leader within their group and as this happens, they develop pride, confidence, leadership skills, and independence from a very young age.
All of our works within the Montessori classroom are designed to teach life skills or educational foundations that the child will build upon over the next years. The Montessori method encourages children to explore and learn at their own pace. We have a prepared environment that’s age-appropriate within which the child may choose a work that’s interesting to them. The teacher presents a lesson one on one and the child then works to master that activity. This allows the child to develop great pride in what they do. The excitement when they master a work is amazing to watch.
You’ll probably also notice how quiet a Montessori classroom is. This can be a big change from traditional daycare or preschool. Our children work independently and quietly on their chosen work in their chosen spot. Children are exposed to works in many subjects, natural materials (even ceramic and glass) and empowered to take care of their environment, which allows them to develop a great sense of pride.
We also spend a lot of time outside. Our campus spans two acres and four buildings so they have lots of room to explore. Our children plant and maintain our garden and get to try the fruits & veggies that they grow. They take nature walks on our campus and take note of what they find.
And of course, we have a big playground for them because play is truly the work of childhood. Kids need downtime to play and just be kids every day too.

A Million Stars
“I would give this school a million stars if I could. My twins have been enrolled for several months now and the have become more disciplined, caring and educated. When we toured the school we noticed everything, including the toys, had an educational purpose. The head teacher, Ms. Louisa and Sandy, the owner, work with us and guide us on age appropriate functions like “lets start moving them toward drinking from cups” and they show us how with kindness. They make you feel so good about leaving your kids with them every day. I honestly feel my twins are loved by Ms. Louisa, Ms. Annette, Ms. Sandy and all of the other staff. They are a breath of fresh air.”
A Passion for Learning
“My son has been attending Klein-Spring for almost a year and we love it! The teachers and staff are very caring for all there students. More importantly, my son has developed a passion for learning and telling us all about what he learns in school. Thanks everybody at Klein-spring! I highly recommend!”
A Special Place In My Heart
“This school holds a very special place in my heart. My son started here when he was 4, my daughter was just shy of 2 years old. We’ve been here 2 years now, and both of my kids have had amazing teachers and wonderful experiences! I feel confident when I drop them off in the morning that they are in amazing hands–the teachers and staff truly care about each child. The Montessori experience is such a wonderful foundation for learning. Awesome teachers, awesome owners and staff, awesome classrooms…just awesome all the way around!”
I Can’t Imagine a Better Place
“My kiddos are currently enrolled at KSMS and have been there over a year. I cannot imagine a better place for them at this time of their life for education and physical well-being. The teachers, helpers and directors are friendly and nurturing and know everyone by name. The hours work great for our work schedules. I only wish they went beyond pre-k!”
