The Montessori method has a way of building confidence in kids that makes them to genuinely want to succeed for themselves.

Who We Are

Educational excellence, unwavering dedication and outstanding child care. Those are the values that Montessori Foundations of Chicago stands for.

Montessori Foundations has revolutionized childcare on the near southwest side of Chicago by offering a Montessori based curriculum in addition to offering before and after school care at no additional charge. We opened in October 2009 to serve the community with a belief that a good quality Montessori education should be attainable for all children and not just the wealthy few.  Afterall, Maria Montessori started her revolution among Italy's poorer children, so it makes sense that her method is effective without the head start of affluence.  We serve infants, preschool and kindergarten students. Our Montessori programs are headed by Montessori Certified Teachers, early and childhood specialists and we are Illinois State Licensed.
