DENISON, Texas -- A new preschool has opened its doors in Denison.

My Montessori School recently moved from its former home in Sherman to a building that until recently was the site of the American Red Cross in Denison.

The school is operated by a mother-daughter duo. But while they're the directors and teachers at the facility, Bonnie Pickel says the students really teach themselves using methods pioneered by Italian educator Maria Montessori.

"Talking to friends and family, saw that there were not many schools, and the schools that were here had lots of waiting lists," Pickel said. "As far as Denison, there isn't another Montessori school, so we just decided that we would go that route and give it a try."

The school has about 12 open spots left for kids between the ages of two-and-a-half and five. It's located at 2527 FM 691, between Texoma Parkway and US 75.
