Thank you for your interest in Council Oak Montessori School. We understand you have many options when it comes to choosing an environment for your child to learn and grow in. For nearly 30 years, we have been providing Montessori education to children on the far south side of Chicago and neighboring communities. As an authentic Montessori school, we believe that a child-initiated, self-direct approach is better than the adult-led, group approach for the following reasons:
Autonomy fosters engagement, and ignites the spark within;
Freedom and responsibility encourage the development of critical executive function skills; and
Real learning and doing things yourself is fun – but it takes time and doesn’t conform to adult-imposed schedules.
As a team of forward-thinking educators, we are committed to guiding the next generation of innovative and creative thinkers. We believe that confidence is integrated into our curriculum and is the foundation of what we do. Our educators foster each student’s natural curiosities and inclination to learn which provides an environment for discovering his or her own potential within.
Council Oak Offers a Superior Learning Environment for Children Ages 3-6 years.
