Philosophy

At Montessori Academy, we understand how your child learns.  Faithfully based on the methods developed by Maria Montessori and a full affiliate of the American Montessori Society (AMS), Montessori Academy is an authentic Montessori school that provides the perfect preparation for our 21st century children.  Creating an environment that perfectly suits a child’s natural tendencies for exploration and creativity, Montessori Academy helps spark a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

A community based non-profit school, Montessori Academy has been serving the Fox Valley at our six acre campus since 1971.  A rich tradition of education excellence has been in place for more than 40 years in the same location.  Although our school has grown over the years, our focus remains the same.  We strive to develop independent individuals who enjoy exploring the world through education, consideration and cooperation.

The Goal of Montessori Academy is to be a Special Place…

Where a child is accepted for their “uniqueness” and their individual needs are respected and met.

Where the child learns to respect the rights of others and to appreciate what it means to be a part of a caring community, a home away from home.

Where the child learns the special value of all living things.

Where the child learns solid moral values that they will carry with them throughout their life.

Where the child’s curiosity and love for learning is encouraged and nurtured.

Where the child receives a solid academic foundation that will serve them well in their later academic pursuits and encourage lifetime learning.
