What Parents Say About Us

We love CRMS very much since they have been very kind and loving toward our daughter. The staff was very helpful with helping my daughter to walk. I would not pick any other school besides theirs. They offer fun/interactive activities, a wonderful environment, and overall great services. They were my first choice and I am glad I chose CRMS 🙂

My son attended the preschool program for fall and summer and it was truly an amazing experience! From the fun school events they hosted for us parents to attend, to the tons of pictures they post to your own parent portal. I feel as though my son has learned so much from this school. They were nominated for best private childcare in katy. And they WON! I definitely see why! The staff is all super kind never is there a doubt in my mind when leaving my babyboy with them. It’s a great feeling. I recommend this Montessori school to anyone looking in the area ! We will miss you guys !!!

Centerra Ranch Montessori School is the best school I could have chosen for my littles. I was so distraught and confused when I was first having to put my babies in a childcare center during COVID and from the first phone call to them, I received the utmost attention and care. I have a 4 year old in their care and my 5 year old just graduated to move on to Kindergarten. Every single employee working there is so nice and I just know my babies are always taken care of. Ms. Saba and Ms. Michelle are just amazing! Always smiling and always communicating with us.

Emily Reyes

It is hard to trust your baby into the care of someone else, but our daughter has been at Centerra Ranch since she has been 7 months old and we are so grateful to have found such a wonderful school with amazing teachers who genuinely love and care for my baby! Our daughter loves getting to go play with her friends at school and has grown in her social skills so much. The staff is quick to communicate if they notice any issues or have any concerns. My daughter has the biggest smile when we drop her off and pick her up each day which makes my heart so happy. Overall, we have had such a wonderful experience and can’t recommend Centerra Ranch enough!

Monique Connor

This school is absolutely amazing. I had my child at another school and started noticing mood changes and bad behaviors, so I switched him to Centerra Ranch Montessori. I have my old kid back! He’s happy every day I pick him up and the teacher focus on positive behaviors rather than tell you every little thing that didn’t go right, which is always a breath of fresh air for a parent. Miss Michelle always has a smile on her face and his teacher is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. I am blessed that I found this school and thrilled that my child is actually learning!

Deirdre Sutor

We had a great experience at Centerra Ranch Montessori. My son went here for a little over a year and he learned so much. They are patient and they understand that each child grows at their own rate. They allowed my son to grow and explore at his own pace. He learned many manners like pushing in his chair and cleaning up his toys. I am very grateful for our time here. Michelle, Saba and all of the Teachers are so wonderful. I hope they will open another school closer to our new house one day.

Abby Gonzales

This school is totally deserves 5 stars and more!!! My son started going there recently, and I already see a big progress. It was difficult to find a daycare with such caring and loving professionals as Centerra Ranch Montessory school has. From the very first day me and my son felt very welcomed. Administration and teachers knows every kid’s smallest details. They are patient and kind. I am grateful for the job they are doing!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Aisulu Adilova

We love Centerra Ranch Montessori School! I have always been hesitant to allow anyone to watch my kids but I am so happy we found this school that we trust! They always keep us updated with notes and pictures which gives us so much reassurance throughout our day. The staff and administration are the sweetest and we are so grateful for them! If you’re looking for a place to send your babies/kids! THIS IS IT! ❤️

Susie Chamorro

My husband and I both have always worked, so full day child care has been our need for our 2 children. We have a 6 year old second grader and a 3 year old. While needing full day care I resorted to the larger Daycare Centers to care for our children. I always felt that they were just “babysitting” my children and that to them my children were just another tuition. I felt like I was settling for the best of the worst, I just didn’t feel the education was there. The quality of the lunches and snacks were poor and undesirable.  I had heard about Centerra Ranch through a friend of mine who highly recommended the school. I was a little hesitant to move my 3 year old son because he doesn’t do well with new people or surroundings. My son has been at Centerra  for over 8 months now and he has flourished. He adapted well to his class thanks to Ms Paula, she went above and beyond to help my son feel accepted in his new environment. I love that the classes are small, and each child moves up when they are ready. I feel like my son is getting the best possible education here. I also love that the lunches are catered by the Good to Go company next door. I feel confident he is getting the nutrition he needs. When my 6 year old daughter finished her first grade year at elementary I enrolled her into the new Science camp at Centerra. She has been having the best time learning about science this summer. The camp is small also so there is plenty of one on one time with the camp teacher. She will definitely be back next summer. . I truly feel like the school is an extension of our family they are not the biggest, but the BEST.

Garcia Family

Our family loves Centerra Ranch Montessori School! How often in life can you say that the promises in the sales pitch were not only met but exceeded? The school promises learning in a socially and emotionally safe environment where the whole school is enthusiastic and supporting of each individual child’s interests and creativity. My daughter absolutely loves school. I love that. They have a deep and truly diverse community that is welcoming, cohesive, curious, thoughtful and respectful. This school is growing children with more than just factual knowledge they are building human beings that have depth-of-character. That is what I REALLY want for my family. She formed many wonderful friendships – with her teachers and classmates, was nurtured and valued as an individual. If you want your child to be passionate, authentic, committed, well read and educated, this is the place for you. Also would like to mention the cleanliness rules followed by the school and teachers are really nice as you will not see a child with dried runny nose, which makes me appreciate that the teachers and staff take the time to wipe kid’s faces and noses which will in turn help keep our kid’s healthy. They wipe the toys and stuff in the classrooms all the time.

My daughter started attending this school in the month of January and I have seen a difference in her personality. Love All the Teachers for their hard work J

I will recommend this school.

After deciding to move our child out of daycare several months back, we became proud Centerra Ranch Montessori School parents since its inception. Today I can say we are really pleased and enthusiastic about the educational nourishment and caring support that CRMS is bringing to our 4-year-old. Watching him grow through his early years in a diverse and motivational environment, supported by a team of well trained and dedicated teachers, has brought us confidence in the Montessori system and reassurance that this was the perfect choice for our son. We feel our son is eager to learn and return to school every day, and CRMS has allowed him to set his own learning pace and constantly bring home new skills that we are pleasantly surprised to see. Every aspect of his learning environment –we feel- is cared for and overseen personally by the school’s owner and head, Ms. Angeline, who strives to incorporate new advancements to the school every day and more importantly, cares for our children as her own while bringing the CRMS community closer every day.

Hace Aproximadamente 5 anos comenzo mi experiencia con “Centerra Ranch Montessori School (CRMS)” como Madre, siempre estuve  en la búsqueda de un lugar como este, pequeño, acogedor, único  con exelente personal  en donde mis hijos no fueran solo “clientes” sino parte de una familia extendida…CRMS fue el hogar académico de mis hijos durante casi 3 anos, felizmente se graduaron y gracias a la excelente base académica aprendida en CRMS lograron aprobar el examen de admisión en el  colegio  Catolico John Paul II.

Después de esta grata experiencia en CRMS siempre considere, a las maestras y a la Directora Ms Angeline, como parte de mi familia, siempre sentí que su preocupación por mis hijos era genuina….a tal punto que anos después decidí aplicar como profesora asistente en CRMS, Ms Angeline me abrió nuevamente las puertas de su colegio, solo que esta vez como profesora…mi satisfacción al trabajar en este colegio es absoluta, pues tengo el beneficio de constatar que este colegio trabaja bajo altos estdandares de calidad, la atención a los niños, las normas de seguridad, las precauciones en el manejo de alimentos y muchas otras cosas hacen de este colegio un lugar muy muy especial, ahora entiendo porque la sensación de hogar cada vez que llegaba a dejar a mis hijos, pues hay mucho personal trabajando “tras bastidores” para que los niños y los padres estén bien….

Centerra Ranch Montessori School   una de las mejores cosas que le ha pasado a mi familia!!!

I have been employed at Centerra Ranch Montessori School since the doors opened on June 4, 2012. I truly love my job, the children, and my boss, Mrs. Angeline Auzenne. I’ve worked in childcare for more than 20 years and I can say with all honesty that I finally found the school where I truly belong. I enjoy going to work every day knowing that I work with people who share a tremendous love for our children as I do. Ms. Angeline has an unbelievable passion for her school, the children & their families. That passion carries over to her staff as well. Not only does she genuinely care for each one of us, she is a great mentor and supports our ideas and helps us put those ideas into action. She also rewards her staff in many ways by giving us concert tickets not only for us but also our family members. There have been many paid breakfasts, dinners, & monthly gift cards that are given “just because”. Every Christmas, she hosts a Christmas party where we receive an annual bonus. She supports her staff if they’re interested in returning to school by offering them a paid/tuition discount. And on top of all of those things, we now have a retirement fund which I personally have never been offered at any of the past schools where I was employed. So for myself I couldn’t ask to be in a better place because I’m employed at a school where we, including staff & children, are ALL loved beyond measures!! Therefore I am proud to be a part of the Centerra Ranch Montessori School Faculty.

من از ۴ جون ۲۰۱۵ در این مدرسه مشغول به کار شدم. ابتدا از محیط گرم و صمیمانه و آرام مدرسه و سپس از رفتار خانم انجلین که مالک و مدیر این موسسه هستند بسیار خوشنودم. ایشان رفتاری بسیار صمیمی و دوستانه با کارمندان خود دارند و در محیط کار بین فرهنگها و مذاهب و نژادهای گوناگون تفاوتی قایل نیستند۰ او علیرغم قلب مهربان و دوست داشتنی خود بسیار جدی عمل می کند بطوریکه مدرسه را براحتی کنترل می کندو به بچه ها عشق میورزد. او علاوه بر اینکه رییس من است دوست من نیز است

Parvin Salehi - CRMS Teacher

Our family was so fortunate to find Centerra Ranch Montessori when we began looking for a school for our son. They are 100% about quality education, child safety and first-class childcare. My son graduated from their Bridge Program then entered KISD. After two weeks, his teacher called and stated he needed to be challenged with first grade work at a minimum. He has actually been doing some 2nd grade workbooks. His teacher was impressed and wanted to know what preschool he attended. She was intrigued with the education he received at Centerra Ranch. My husband and I both work long hours so we give all the credit for his academic achievements to Centerra Ranch teachers and Ms. Angeline. The Bridge program is truly amazing and I do not think any school in Katy provides what they offer. Only downside is they usually have a waiting list for the Bridge classroom and max students is 12-15 or so. My son was beyond ready for kindergarten. The Bridge teacher is also amazing and she expects as well as get’s a lot out of her students. We love her!!

My daughter has been enrolled since she was an infant and is now in the Toddler class. She loves it! She’s excited to go to school every morning even on weekends when they are closed (lol). The Toddler teachers are amazing and really love the children. I appreciate that they are experienced, mature teachers and not high school kids or very young individuals. The owner sends me short video’s and pictures of her from time to time while in class which just brightens my day at work no matter how stressful it is.

The school is extremely clean and smells great always. Their food program is amazing and I love that it’s real; quality catered meals not applesauce and a bunch of processed stuff. We also like the small class sizes. 25-30 students in one preschool class are just too many in my opinion. We have made friends with a couple of the other parents which is nice. Their prices are very reasonable and for everything they offer, it’s a very good value in my opinion.

My family gives Centerra Ranch 5-stars because they place our children first, have high standards for child safety, top-notch in academics, tuition is reasonable, and we truly love them like family!

I am a mother of 3 kids who attend Centerra Ranch Montessori School since its beginning. I’ve never been in a situation to worry about my kids. Few things that I most love about this school:

  1. The student-to-teacher ratio is small and rest assured, my kids gets the attention they need
  2. The classrooms are always clean and never seen a kid with running nose or food stuck on their face or dress
  3. The school management is very understanding; reasonable and quick in resolving any issue reported which I’ve hardly had any
  4. Every teacher knows every child, so when my kids move up to another class room, they always feel comfortable
  5. Teachers are the biggest strength for the overall success of the school
  6. Bridge program is commendable

As a mother, I am happy when my kids are excited to go back to school on a Monday morning.


I had the opportunity to visit Centerra Ranch Montessori School on four occasions this summer. I was very impressed with the teachers and the size of the classes. The teachers are very capable. The classes were small in size thereby allowing children to get involved with the science shows I was providing.

I own Science Quest, a company that provides enrichment classes for children. I see children throughout the Greater Houston area and go to many (over 150) different schools. As a result, I have seen the good and bad child care services being offered. Centerra Ranch is without a doubt one of the best. I worked directly with the owner and her daughter as well as two other teachers. All were professional, caring and very good with the children. They treated me with respect and made my experience at this school excellent.

I would highly recommend Centerra Ranch Montessori School and if my children were preschool ages, I would have no reservations sending them to this school. It is a shame that all preschools aren’t like Centerra Ranch Montessori.

I am so glad I chose Centerra Ranch Montessori School after looking at 4 different Montessori schools in the Katy area. My little one has gone there for almost a year now. Centerra Ranch Montessori is the Best!! It’s great and a positive environment, the teachers, and Administrative staff really do LOVE the kids. They speak it and show it. My little girl has never even come home and said she has had a bad day. She loves her teachers and is 3 years old and knows all 7 continents name and where they are located on a map. Who wouldn’t want this kind of environment for their child to be in? I am so proud that my child is a part of Centerra Ranch Montessori School.

My daughter has been attending Centerra Ranch Montessori School since she was 3-months old. She will soon be turning 3 and we could not be happier with the school. The care they provide is exceptional and the teachers are all wonderful individuals. At first, we couldn’t imagine her moving from Infant because we developed such a positive and trusting relationship with the teachers. However, the Toddler and Transition teachers are equally great and my daughter really loves them too. Her speech and independent thinking development amazes me daily. I’m shocked how fast she is maturing, learning and achieving critical milestones. I like the small class sizes because the teachers are able to give more care and attention to my child. Their new outdoor play area is incredible! Ms. Angeline is wonderful and will do anything possible to help anyone in need. She’s also very easy to talk to about things regarding my child. My daughter loves giving her big hugs in the morning and afternoon. We are very happy and I can’t imagine my daughter being anywhere else but CRMS. Personally, I like their strict policy for safety and restrict visitors that do not have scheduled appointments from entering my child’s school.

I recommend Centerra Ranch Montessori to anyone looking for a high-quality preschool that will love and adore your child as well as provide exceptional care and education to them every single day. They get 5 stars from my family! Beth

My daughter has been attending this school since she was a baby. She is now 3 and loves it! As a professional working with children, and an anxious mom, I am very picky about where I send my children, but I have been very pleased with CRMS. My daughter loves to go there and if I have ever had any concerns, I was able to communicate with Angeline and she was very helpful. I especially love the small class size!! All the other schools I visited had large classrooms, which concerned me that my child would not have the nurturing that her growing brain needs. I am very pleased when I walk in to see that the teacher is very affectionate and gentle with my child. It is hard working and leaving your child, and I am confident that she is in good hands.

Stephanie Legendre

Our 3.5 year old daughter has been attending Centerra Ranch Montessori School for 2 years. In those 2 years, we have been pleased with her overall development, advancement in academics and social skills. There were several moments she would catch us by surprise. To witness our daughter carry out the education she has been taught at school and to display such positive, helpful, respectful, and responsible behavior at home and with her peers, is just a small testament of what she has learned and is encouraged at CRMS. We also love that the school recognize, educate the students, and celebrate holidays of other cultures.

My daughter has loved both her teachers that she’s had from day one, as we have, Ms. Sangeetha and Ms. Krupa. We could not be any happier or relieved. Aside from the teachers being Montessori Certified, you can absolutely feel the dedication and compassion that they have for their job and the students. My daughter had no difficulties adjusting or interacting with neither her teachers nor other teachers of CRMS.

As any parent, it is extremely nerve wrecking to put your trust in complete strangers with your child/children specially being at such a young age. We did our research, read reviews, inquired with family and friends, and toured several schools. One thing all the schools had in common is the negative reviews. Having been at both sides as a seller and consumer, we know firsthand that it is almost impossible to please every customer. With Centerra Ranch Montessori School right around the corner from home, we decided to give it a try. From the Bachelor and Master Degree faculty, diversity of the staff and students, and the overall feel and experience with the school, we could not be more pleased with our decision.

Mrs. Angeline has been extremely pleasant since the initial contact. As time passed, we were able to witness the passion, dedication, and love not only that she has for her school, but most importantly her students. She is extremely protective of her students as a parent would be with their child. The students’ safety and education are her top priority and she has their best interest at heart. Others may construe her reaction to what she takes in account a sensitive matter negatively. However, we could not be more at peace to know that our daughter is safe and in the hands of trustworthy individuals. We are excited for what lies ahead for our daughter while attending CRMS. We are thrilled about the Bridge Program she will be in next year. The teacher, Mrs. Gwen, is awesome! Many thanks to Mrs. Angeline, Mr. Byron, Ms. Sara and faculty for the commitment and hard work you put forth to the school and the students. We’ve had the opportunity to grow close with the Centerra Ranch Montessori School family, that this has become my daughter’s home away from home.

Christianne and Juan Buchanan

I am so in love with Centerra Ranch Montessori School! Most of our friends know how particular I am with my daughter and the care she receives. CRMS is the most wonderful environment I could have ever imagined for her. The personal love and attention they bring to each family is beyond what any parent could ask for in a Montessori preschool. The director, Ms. Angeline, has also been my personal mentor, helping me be the best mommy possible during my daughter’s important developmental years. A simple “thank you” could never be enough to show my appreciation, so sharing my 2 years personal experience at Centerra Ranch Montessori School with other parents is indeed our pleasure.

Keron and Tricia Ali

As a small, private Montessori school, Centerra Ranch Montessori School (CRMS) makes every child feel right at home. The school is incredibly diverse and teachers are very qualified. We have been proud CRMS parents for over 2 years and all 3 of our children currently attend CRMS. When our family was faced with a challenging situation earlier this year, the Director of the school, Ms. Angeline, was extremely supportive and helped us find a solution. Over and over again, we have found the teachers and administrator to be kind, supportive, involved and caring. We hope to be CRMS parents for many years to come.

Mr. & Mrs. Ali Mohammad

My daughter has been in the Bridge class for 2 years now. I couldn’t be happier with our experiences here. She has grown so much as a student, I’m thoroughly impressed with her growth, not only as a student, but as a person as well! I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the owner and staff. This is a small, locally owned (non-franchised, non “chain”) Montessori school, the owner is readily available to enrolled parents to answer questions or concerns via text/phone call/email. Great atmosphere for students, very attentive staff!!

Natalie Sease

As of July 2017, both of our daughters are happily enrolled at Centerra Ranch Montessori School in Katy, Texas. Since we’ve been parents of the school for over 18 months, we would love to leave them a review.

Let me start with our 4 year old daughter. Last year, she was enrolled in the excellent Bridge-to-Kindergarten program. Initially, we were a little skeptical since we had already changed schools twice prior to joining CRMS. My daughter was immediately comfortable with her teachers. Over the school year, my daughter excelled in Reading, Art, Social Skills and Math. Ms. Sarah and Ms. Angeline left no stone unturned to make my daughters transition a very easy one. My daughter is enjoying all the summer activities with Ms. Sarah.

Our 2.5 year-old daughter is enrolled in the Transition class with Ms. Sangeetha. She immediately became friends with all her teachers, teacher assistants, and her classmates. She enjoys taking part in all the activities and comes home happy.

The school provides a very healthy environment for the overall development of the child.

Lastly, we want to wish CRMS the very best and we are really looking forward to seeing both our daughters continue the path of progress in the next school year.

Zaheer and Khadija Rangwala

My husband and I were very pleased with services we received at the Centerra Ranch Montessori School. Our 4 month old baby was loved and surrounded with exceptional care. Ms Angeline, the owner of the school, was very sweet, polite and always professional. The moment you walk in the school you can feel her personal touch and how she loves her students. We were amazed by the Zen Garden that she created on the back of the school. It had benches for lunches with parents, hands-on activities for sensory development, a stage for acting performances and many other cool things for children. In addition, we really liked their extracurricular programs such as music and Spanish lessons. By far, Centerra Ranch Montessori School is not just a day care, it’s a unique educational center with extra care for your little one. We were really impressed.
