School Notes

  • The Montessori Academy of Chicago boasts the traditional Montessori Method with the belief that cognitive development is the product of interaction between the individual and the environment. We have a uniquely designed, activity based learning environment structured to meet your child's needs. We recognize that children learn and adapt differently and stress the importance of adapting the curriculum to a child’s developmental level. Our goal is to spark a child’s interest in learning, thereby helping them to become life-long learners. The academy strives to assist children in personal development, as well as educational development. We strongly believe that the community of the child, parent, and educator is the foundation of the school’s success.
