About Smaller Scholars Grisby
Located near West Houston Energy Corridor at the intersection of Highway 6 and I-10 is Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy, a Cadence Education® School.
Here, our trained, qualified and caring staff takes a hands-on Montessori approach to learning and provides quality programming and dedicated teachers for children from 18 months old to 5 years old.
Our students are encouraged to be actively involved and creative explorers, as well as independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners. Each child is treated as an individual and encouraged to progress at his natural ability while still reaching desired age-level goals.
Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy is lauded for its warmly decorated, homelike environment found throughout the school. Our family-friendly policy is one that welcomes parent visits any time of the day. We host monthly events and parties celebrating major holidays that lend a fun, celebratory feel on campus. We offer multiple play areas on our outdoor playground.
A hot, nutritious catered lunch is served each day, along with regularly scheduled snacks.
