- The Montessori School of Champaign-Urbana, founded in 1962, is owned by the Montessori Society of Champaign-Urbana. The Society is a not-for-profit corporation composed primarily of the parents whose children are enrolled in the school. MSCU has been providing Montessori education for over 50 years. We have five Early Childhood classrooms staffed by fully credentialed Montessori educators. We offer both 3 and 6 hour preschool programs as well as a six hour kindergarten option. Wraparound child care is available 7:30 am through 5:30 pm. A Toddler program is also available for children ages 15-35 months to enjoy a gentle introduction to the Montessori method of education. An elementary building was added to the campus in August 2014 serving grades one through six. In 2020 MSCU will add a secondary program serving grades 7-8. The Montessori method offers a time-tested, brain-based method of education.

I love MSCU, but more importantly, my daughter loves it, she loves to go to school! MSCU makes the love for learning flourish beautifully by realizing that not all students are interested in the same topic at the same time, and different parts of their brains develop at different at different times. A couple of weeks ago, my daughter came home psyched about moving up one level in her math work at school and could not wait to go to school the next day to do more math! This is how it happened. Earlier that day, she finished all the 'works' for the math level she was working on. Her teacher realized this and asked my daughter if she wanted to take that level's proficiency test to make sure she was ready for the next math level. My daughter said that she felt she'd done enough math for the day, would take the proficiency test another day. OK, said the teacher, whenever you're ready. An hour or so later, my daughter came to the teacher and told her she'd done everything else she wanted to do at school that day, so she was ready to take the proficiency math test. OK, said the teacher. When finished taking the proficiency test, my daughter realized she was ready for the next level math, and so she moved up. She now loves math! She wants to go to school to do math. How many children love to do math? I bet most Montessori kids do! Furthermore, on our recent Thanksgiving trip, my daughter wanted to take some math workbooks just for the fun of it. There is no homework, but she loves learning so much that she just want to do it for the fun of it! Thank you MSCU!
