Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.

- Maria Montessori

The secret of all nature is to be found in the soul of a child.

- Maria Montessori

Through working by themselves, children acquire an active discipline, a practical independence, and a gradual increase in knowledge.

- Maria Montessori

Every child carries within him (unseen) the person he will become. In order to develop the physical, intellectual and spiritual powers to the fullest, he must have freedom, a freedom to be achieved through order and self-discipline.

- Maria Montessori

The world of the child is filled with sights and sounds, which at first appear chaotic. From this chaos, the child must gradually create order and learn to distinguish among impressions that assail her senses, slowly, but surely gaining mastery of herself and her environment.

Serving Infants through Kindergarten

A Lifetime Foundation

“There are many who hold as I do that the most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

MONTESSORI EDUCATION is not only a philosophy, but also a method to guide the child’s growth. Our goal is to help the child cultivate his natural desire to learn. Our emphasis is on self-learning and the development of inner discipline.

Activities progress from basic to more complex, therefore success is more easily and naturally accomplished. Classroom materials are adapted regularly to keep the child's interest. In the 3-6 year old classes, the mixed age grouping enhances the child’s opportunities to observe, follow or lead. The child’s chances of failure are minimized and his chances for success are enhanced. The child is personally guided and recognized by the staff as a unique individual.

Located in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, Buffalo Grove Montessori School enrolled its first students in 1975, offering full day and morning programs for children infants through kindergarten.
