For thirty years, A Child’s Garden Montessori School, located in Carrollton, TX, has been committed to provide a quality Montessori education to families who seek an integrated educational experience for their children.
ACG provides a nurturing environment that addresses the whole child, that is, the cognitive, social and emotional needs of children.  ACG Montessori’s extensive experience in early childhood education and decades of Montessori instruction offer children a peaceful environment in which children are encouraged to unlock their inner potential as they develop the skills to become life-long learners.
In addition to acquiring academic competency, children develop leadership skills, eagerness to follow directions, responsibility, empathy, and adaptability among others.
The school offers year round part-time and full-time programs, including before and after school care as well as summer camp. Hours of operation are 7 am-6pm for children 18 months to 6 years of age.
Additionally, the school offers parent education workshops. Enrollment is open year-round, but some classes fill up quickly during the beginning of the school year.
We recommend parents to plan ahead.
