Welcome to Skokie Montessori School

Skokie Montessori School is a little Casa de Bambini in the heart of Skokie. We believe in the advantages of the Maria Montessori method of education and its philosophy. We offer programs for children ages 2 through 12 years old in Skokie and the surrounding area. Teachers who have been in the Montessori field for many years have designed it functionally and aesthetically. The school is fully equipped by materials that were created by Maria Montessori and when the child utilizes the materials, one will witness the realization of the method of Montessori. How the child grasps the concept of the lesson by working with the right materials.

The teacher, directress or director plays a key role in recognizing the ability and potential of each child. The teacher must identify and spark the child’s interests in learning. The child is always on a mission to learn, either directly or indirectly. They are open to any information they can receive from their environment, therefore it is our job to make all that information enriching.

Our mission is to provide a rich educational experience that nurtures the love of learning, encourages intellectual curiosity, and fosters self confidence in a stimulating, safe, and caring environment.
