  • The Flossmoor Montessori School continues the creative individual and social education begun by the physician-educator, Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • Recognizing the unique potential of the child, Dr. Montessori was successful in understanding and assisting the child in the course of fundamental human development - that of becoming an adult.
  • For the child shows us a universal pattern of development and this pattern reveals sensitive periods, short intervals during which the child is disposed to create some part of himself using what the environment provides.
  • Walking and speaking at predictable times are illustrations of this phenomenon in very young children.
  • By addressing these sensitivities and providing psychologically appropriate activities in the right way, Montessori education helps the child build himself physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.
  • The School admits children of any race, color and ethnic or national origin.
  • Acceptance of children is on an individual basis with consideration given to class composition and available space and programs.
  • The School is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization. Flossmoor Montessori School is accredited by the Association Montessori International and belongs to the Illinois Montessori School System.
  • The faculty consists of directresses who hold Montessori diplomas issued by accredited training courses; assistants; an administrator and support staff.
