Wonderful practical life shelf from my reader Marisol Camacho from The Grove Community School, Texas
As an advocate for a play-based approach to early childhood education (think block centers, sensory bins, water tables, Process-based art, dramatic center, and plenty of time outdoors) I’m often asked which schools I recommend here in the Woodlands area or where I’m sending my own children. It’s hard to believe I’ve only been here about a year but in that time I’ve discovered a few gems. I love The Early Learning Program of The Woodlands Community Presbyterian Church. That’s where my two kids, 18 months & 3 years old, started yesterday. It’s wonderfully play-based. I LOVE that they have a designated playground teacher who provides sensory and process- based art experiences outside on their amazing playground. It is Presbyterian affiliated. We also love the local Waldorf school, Great Oak School, which has no religious affiliation. I love their relationship to nature, a childhood lacking in screen time and noisy toys as well as their unheard of approach to literacy- they don’t teach it until 1st grade, which used to be the norm until the push down of academics. They have a wonderful parent child series we’re trying out. Ours is a cooking program and I look forward to their seasonal celebrations like the lantern walk and maypole spring celebration. I love that I continue to learn about more amazing little local schools, as I chat with like minded moms who share their own discoveries. So I wanted to share these discoveries with you here. For a Montessori approach check out The Grove Community School I also hear good things about an international school with a project-based approach called Cunae International School. Another friend recently told me about Magic Oak which looks to be play-based and bilingual; I’ll be curious to hear more about her experience. Have you discovered any MDO or preschool gems here in the Woodlands area? Please share your experience with us here.

The Grove Community School is an authentic Montessori school that strives to support each student on their path to self-discovery.

We love autumn! 🍂🧡🤎 From relaxing lunches on the deck and picnics on lawn, to breezy work periods outside, this is one of our favorite seasons at The Grove! The cool weather has left us energized and ready to learn each day!

SO. MUCH. FUN! ✨🌲🧡🍁 We had such a great time at our fall festival last night! When we were in the planning stages of opening The Grove, we knew it was important that “community” was part of our name. We dreamed of a place that served as a home away from home. A place where relationships were built and friendships were made. As we listened to the shrieks of delight as little ones pet a kangaroo🦘, and saw the giggles shared over the campfire as kids roasted giant marshmallows together🔥, we were filled with joy that our dream has become a reality. Thank you to everyone who makes our community so special!

What a wonderful week we’re having at the Grove! We’ve found BIG hungry caterpillars 🐛 and spider sacs that reminded our Lower Elementary friends of Charlotte’s web. 🕷 We’re also working hard in the classroom and learned all about Diwali today from a few of our friends! ✨🕯
