Fox Valley Montessori School

  • Fox Valley Montessori School is peaceful community that fosters a child's personal growth, life long love of learning and academic excellence.
  • Our objective is to provide carefully planned stimulating environments which help children develop essential habits, attitudes, skills and ideas for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.
  • Maria Montessori's philosophy of following the growing needs of each individual child, gives children the freedom to experiment and learn in a "prepared environment" at their own pace in a non-competitive atmosphere.
  • This allows the physical, intellectual, emotional and social potential of each child to unfold.
  • The core of Dr. Montessori's philosophy states that as children acquire an "inner discipline" from their exposure to both physical and mental order, they become free to learn - the natural impulse to learn is self-motivation of the child.
