In 2003, the Skokie Montessori School of Skokie opened its door to Skokie and the surrounding communities. Then again, in 2008, Skokie Montessori School started an elementary program (grades 1-6). Since the opening of this program, it has come to our attention that our elementary students are growing and need space. Thus, we are pleased to announce that our children's wish for a bigger space has been granted. The new satellite site is located at 5201 Galitz Street, Skokie, Illinois 60077. This expansion will facilitate the students in their research and explorations.
The School continues to be successful in encouraging the Montessori method and philosophies that respect the well being and spirit of a child. The school is aesthetically designed for the child's natural appeal to beauty and order in a very simple calm environment.
The Skokie Montessori School of Skokie is dedicated to helping children develop a positive self-image within him through a series of repetitive success in performing activities which answer his inner needs. The child thus gains the conviction that he can do things by himself and that he is worthwhile.
The child thrives on his feeling of accomplishment: building his self-confidence, self-initiative, persistence and sense of order. The Skokie Montessori School provides the children a classroom atmosphere that allows the children to flourish independently yet cooperatively through peer teaching. Therefore, enabling the children to attain a level of appreciation of the diversity that exists in social interactions and emotional development.
