School Programs

Midwest Montessori is the Demonstration School for the nationally recognized Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center (MMTTC) and provides a model Montessori environment for children aged 3 through 6. Our nurturing staff and carefully sequenced materials promote self-respect, dignity, independence and community responsibility while opening up the world to our young learners. We endeavor to nurture the heart and challenge the intellect of every child through meaningful, multi-sensory experiences. In our mixed-age classrooms, children thrive through individualized activities in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Science, Geography, Botany, Zoology, Art and Music. Afterschool enrichment activities include Spanish, Chess and Yoga, among other offerings. The School is open from 7:30 AM until 5:30 PM and we offer a variety of programs that can include a child-friendly, nutritious hot lunch, nap or advanced Kindergarten curriculum based on your child’s age and your time needs.

Midwest Montessori School is a full member of the American Montessori Society. We are registered with the Illinois Board of Education and are a member of the Association of Illinois Montessori Schools and the Illinois Coalition of Non Public Schools.
