Our Mission

What We Stand For

A Montessori Reggio Academy education is an investment in your child’s future. We take great pride in offering an authentic Montessori education enriched with a Reggio Emilia arts and science program – a unique combination of proven learning methods. The Reggio Emilia approach is an educational philosophy focused on preschool and primary education- based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum. As MRA educators, our goal is to set a strong foundation of life-long emotional and mental wellbeing in each of our students.




MRA is honored to be selected for the 2021 Best of Sugar Land Award in the Montessori School category by the Sugar Land Award Program for the 5th year in a row! Such recognition is given to local businesses that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value in the community. Our school has now demonstrated exceptional success two years running, qualifying it for the Business Hall of Fame. We take great pride in such recognitions, striving each day to create an atmosphere of learning, acceptance, and growth for our students, educators, and parents. 


what makes us different

Our goal is to spark a child’s interest in learning while developing independence and self-confidance, helping them to become lifelong learners. 

 We follow the traditional Montessori Method with the belief that cognitive development is the product of interaction between the individual and the environment. Forget about lesson plans that expect every child to fit into a mold. In our classrooms, children work independently at their own pace with one-on-one guidance from their teacher. Each child leaves at the end of the day with an individual progress report and personalized plans forgrowth. We are the only school in Sugar Land that dedicates an entire room to this hands-on learning program! 

All of this means that an our program gives you your best value and return on investment. You can spend the same amount of money on day care or standard pre-school, but those programs don’t come close to providing the quality of education you get with an MRA education.


MRA- Curriculum has been developed to foster a child’s love of learning and promote respect for self, others, community and the world. Maria Montessori believed that once the child’s basic needs of security, love, food and shelter were met, learning was a natural, inherent and spontaneous activity. The education process depends on the child, the prepared environment, the teacher/facilitator and the parent. Students learn in different ways and at different rates. Learning is enhanced through direct hands-on experiences rather than from a textbook. Exploration is vital to sustain curiosity, choice is necessary for self-motivation, and discovery requires trial and error. The education process encourages a child to be responsible for self and the world, and, consequently, education is dramatically more than simply learning facts.

The Montessori curriculum is organized to present concepts and ideas appropriate to the child. Initially, lessons are introduced simply and concretely and are reinvestigated throughout future school years to increasing depth, breadth and complexity. The curriculum is tied together by thematic studies (such as the physical universe, the human experience, nature, culture, etc.) and not presented in the traditional subject-content approach (such as math, history, English, etc.) The curriculum seeks to integrate experiences across traditional subjects and to facilitate the child’s ability to locate whole-to-part perspectives, constantly identifying the individual’s place in the world.

“I would definitely recommend MRA!!! Ms. Mehri have been a wonderful and caring teacher to my 17 month old daughter. She loves her and loves to go to school every day, gives her hug as soon she sees Ms. Mehri in the morning. Its so wonderful that teachers touch hearts of little ones..” 

Mansi Thakkar









My wife and I have been very happy with this school, particularly under the new direction and leadership of Ms. Martina. She is super professional and yet enthusiastic, fun and approachable, and the culture and administration of MRA is strong. We strongly recommend Ms. Sunhye, who works with our daughter. She is very caring, knowledgeable, passionate and extremely committed, and we are lucky to have her.

—Andrew Lee



I tell all my family and friends about MRA. I was suffering from extreme mom guilt at the thought of leaving my child under someone else’s care. However, that all changed… I can tell you that I have peace and confidence every time I drop her off that she is in good hands with Ms. Sunhye. She knows the small, unique details about my daughter… We are so grateful… especially Ms. Martina… My daughter has a dairy allergy and they are great about adjusting the menu for her. Thank you for the wonderful care for my daughter!
