School Reviews

After searching all over Chicago for a great montessori school I finally found one at Tiny Tots. The school places a lot of emphasis on science and math through hands on learning. I have two children enrolled in Tiny Tots, a 2yr old and a 4yr old. Since they have been at the school they have made exceptional progress. My 2 yr old can say her ABCs and count, and identify letters in her books and my son can tell me about the metamorphosis of the butterfly and name the continents. Tiny Tots is a hidden jewel, I highly recommend it to parents who want the best early childhood education for their children.

A very hidden secret of a fantastic school. Absolutely wonderful school. Definitely gives parent a rest easy feeling of homelike loving environment. Son attended at age 20months, now entering medical school, still returns to give thanks for all!
