Inspiring a lifelong love of learning

Our schools in Highland Park and Glencoe have fostered the unique potential of North Shore children since 1987. By embracing the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, we instill a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect, and compassion for others through our research-proven programs. Our method is designed to build upon your child’s innate skills, knowledge and talents. By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in his or her own learning process – at his or her own pace.

Children aged birth to six years old learn more – and more rapidly – than at any other time in their lives. Finding the right program is one of the most important decision you’ll ever make as a parent. Explore our program overview to find just the right fit for your child.

Our Staff

The most important part of any school are the people that interact with your children every day. You trust your child with us and we take that trust seriously. That is why we have a rigorous selection process for our staff and even after finding the best of the best, we provide a platform that support new ideas and methods for continual excellence.

How do I enroll?

Because of the high demand for our schools we try our best to accommodate as many families as we can. Your chances of getting a spot are much greater if you enroll well in advance of the school year. There are still spots available for the 2018-2019 school year.
