After purchasing the old Star Theatre off Dove Rd. in Southlake last year, renovations are complete at the new location for Abundant Grace Christian Montessori Academy. After starting Abundant Grace just two years ago, Pastor George Craft and his wife, Kathy, decided it was time to move forward with the purchase plans.
According to Kathy, who has taught Montessori for 17 years, classes were originally held at a small church in the area. “The [old] space was a blessing, but now we will have more room to teach, love and care for the children based on the Montessori philosophy,” Kathy explains.
The new space is a 4,800-square-foot complex sitting on 1.5 acres of land. In addition to more room for classes and nurtured learning, the land’s acreage will allow for outdoor learning—also an important component of the Montessori education.
Currently, the school accepts children ages 3 to 6, but will have space available for 7 to 9 year olds in the future. The school has an enrollment of 13, but Kathy hopes to have 22 students by the summer.
