Welcome to Tanglewood

Tanglewood Preschool and Tanglewood Montessori School in Nacogdoches, Texas welcomes you and your child to the exciting adventure of discovery and learning. We are located at 1118 Tanglewood Circle, Nacogdoches, Texas 75961. Montessori is an educational experience and not a daycare service. As a private school, we offer a year-round educational program designed to promote the physical, social, cognitive and emotional development of children. Our philosophy is based on love and respect for each child as a special and unique individual. We hope this website will serve as a guide to our school's goals and policies. We believe you will be delighted that you have chosen the Montessori approach to learning and we look forward to knowing you and your family.

Tanglewood Montessori School is designed to fill the individual needs of children ages 18 months through kindergarten. The school is modeled after what Dr. Maria Montessori called "the prepared environment", an environment which possesses order and logic. These first years of school encourage a child's natural enthusiasm and love of learning. "Learning by doing", as called by Dr. Montessori, encourages practical applications and use of materials designed for that purpose. Children develop at their own pace and according to their own capabilities.

This educational program fully incorporates the Montessori philosophy. Montessori methods and materials are used in all classrooms. We achieve our educational and social goals through one-on-one instruction, small group lessons and a variety of activities based on Montessori principles. Children are guided toward a state of self-direction.

Tanglewood Learning Center provides before and after school care for our students as well as an after school program for students from area schools. Our after school program offers parents a safe and happy environment for their children. We also offer a theme based, well planned, full day Summer Program.

Hours of operations: 6:30 am - 6:00 pm Monday - Friday (year round program)
