Welcome Message from Our Director
"One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child."
~Dr. Maria Montessor
As the Director at The Foundations Montessori, I would like to welcome you to our wonderful school community. My name is Saima Nabeel, and I have over 20 years of experience as a Montessorian.
During my journey, I have worked with leading Montessori schools within and outside of the United States in a variety of roles ranging from a teacher, team leader, and mentor. Prior to starting my professional career, I completed a bachelor's degree in Psychology. Additionally, I am AMS Montessori certified, have a Cache 3 Qualification for Early Childhood Education, and am a credentialed Director with the Childcare Council of Greater Houston.
Over the past few years, TFM has built a strong reputation and is committed to providing exemplary education to its students. Our endeavor for continuous improvement is highlighted by our focus on acquiring AMS accreditation.
The hallmarks of an authentic Montessori school include the core areas of practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language, science, cultural studies, and a focus on general etiquettes such as grace and courtesy. We offer outdoor activities such as morning yoga and gardening to allow the children to explore the world around them. Through various programs such as Kids for Peace, we develop a strong respect for cultural diversity, community, and the environment.
At TFM, we believe in creating a strong partnership between parents and teachers to provide a holistic environment for the child's development. I look forward to meeting you at our parent curriculum nights and several other events at school.
I am proud to be a part of the TFM family. I am positive that through a collaborative effort, we will continue to create wonderful and wholesome learning experiences for the children.
Ms. Saima Nabeel
