Chicago Montessori opened its doors in 2005. Montessori classrooms provide a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural tendency to work.
The children's innate passion for learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, purposeful activities with the guidance of a trained adult.
Through their work, the children develop concentration and joyful self-discipline.
Within a framework of order, the children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities.
