Alcuin Montessori School

FROM THE Education

At Alcuin Montessori, we empower our children's inherent love of learning, inspiring and challenging each child to engage the world as an independent thinker, creative problem solver, and compassionate citizen.

With programs for ages 0-14, Alcuin provides an authentic Montessori experience which includes preschool, elementary, all-year Montessori for ages 3-6, Spanish, summer camp, art, theater, swim, and coming this summer, our Roosevelt Road campus (in Oak Park) will house our infant/toddler program and our excellent Middle School for 7th and 8th graders.

Founded in 1961, Alcuin Montessori is one of the oldest Montessori schools in the country. Our programs are designed to help each child become confident, curious, self-disciplined and motivated. The essence of the Montessori Method is to allow for the development of a child's potential while also encouraging participation in a community that emphasizes respect and cultural awareness. Classrooms are filled with materials that encourage creativity and emphasize sensory experiences.

We invite you to come and discover our programs. At Alcuin Montessori, we offer Education for Life.
