Construction of The Montessori School at StarCreek began this week at the intersection of Waters and 121 in Allen, Texas. Slated for its grand opening in the fall of 2009, the school, located in the master-planned development of Starcreek, will serve nearly 300 children from 6 weeks through 12 years and is already accepting applications for enrollment.
Constructed to provide an optimal educational environment for children, the new 35,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility will be the premiere Montessori school in the DFW Metroplex. This modern oasis for learning raises the bar on advanced Montessori education, offering a cutting-edge academic center with science lab, computer center and extensive library. The Montessori School at StarCreek, whose philosophy includes working to inspire the development of each child into self-confident, independent learners, also includes a music studio, indoor gym, art studio, performing arts stage, gardening instructional areas, outdoor play areas and even an outdoor water park.
The property is being developed by private investors and Blue Star Land L.P. which is owned by the Gene and Jerry Jones family. Gene Jones, president of Blue Star Land L.P. and developer of StarCreek in Allen and Starwood in Frisco, said, "when we planned the communities of StarCreek and Starwood, ensuring that the families in our communities had access to the highest quality services was, and continues to be, an utmost priority. Our communities require quality care and education options for their children."
Director of The Montessori School at StarCreek Monica Cook looks forward to her new role. "The Montessori School at StarCreek will assist children in their preparation for the future and guide them to achieve success at all their endeavors," says Cook. "We are very excited about opening our new school in this wonderful community." Cook, a Montessori grad herself who holds her MBA from SMU and has over 15 years of Montessori educational experience, will be managing the new school.
The Montessori School at StarCreek will follow the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, which emphasizes giving children the freedom to explore and discover their own interests while in turn guiding them to achieve success at all their endeavors. Once complete, the school will establish affiliation with the American Montessori Society. "Our goal," says Cook, "Is to inspire the development of each child into self-confident, independent learners in a loving, safe, supportive and culturally diverse environment."
