Located at the heart of the Lone Star State, the Montessori school in Houston, Texas, is sculpting the African concept of Ubuntu in its curriculum. This powerful philosophy underlines our interconnectedness and the value of compassion, providing children with one of life’s most crucial yet unspoken lessons—emotional resilience.
This is different from your typical learning institute in Texas. We fundamentally believe in the principle that every child is unique and has the inborn natural curiosity to learn. Our environment stimulates this curiosity, encouraging the children to explore, experiment, and discover, fostering their independence. But there’s an invisible layer to this. We subtly weave the fabric of emotional intelligence into the daily rhythm. From handling disappointments to tackling complex feelings, we nurture children’s ability to cope.
As an academic school, it’s easy to place a heavier emphasis on intellectual growth. However, we understand that learning goes beyond academics. Our educators facilitate conversations and encourage emotional expression, training the students to understand and regulate their feelings. This is essential in building emotional resilience, which will help them navigate life beyond the school walls.
This educational approach really sets us apart. Children are becoming equipped to flourish not just intellectually but emotionally, too. They are not only learning math or science; they are also learning the art of resilience. Emotional resilience has its roots in understanding, empathy, and self-awareness. Through our methodology, children learn to understand their feelings, empathize with others, and become self-aware. This soft skill plays an unarguably massive role in their overall well-being and success throughout their lives.
Join us as we cultivate an environment rooted in Ubuntu, fostering intellectual growth and emotional resilience at the Montessori Learning Institute.
