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.
