Tel: (847)550-0917
Grades: PK-K | 43 students
Since its founding over 25 years ago, the Montessori Children's House has served thousands of children from communities in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago.
The school provides programs for children from birth to six years of age.
In employing the Montessori method of education, the school offers personalized, respectful, and faithful experience in learning and growth to all of our students.The goal of MCHNB is to enable each child to grow in awareness of him or herself, of others, and of the world around.
Dr. Maria Montessori recognized that the very young child goes through periods of great sensitivity in particular areas during which one learns more easily than any other time in life.
A totally prepared environment awaits the absorbent mind of the child.
Each material, activity, or experience is expressly designed to give the child new perspective, to develop a scientific concept, or to encourage growth as a social being.
MCHNB fosters a sense of partnership between the children, the teachers, and the parents to work collaboratively towards the common goal of realizing potential.
