Welcome to South Loop
Montessori School!

Dedicated to Nurturing the Full Human Potential

We deliver the highest standard of Montessori education in the Chicagoland area through instilling Dr. Montessori’s philosophy into our community.

Our School is a stimulating learning facility, offering year-round, all-day programs for children 8 weeks to 9 years of age.

We are located steps from Downtown Chicago, in a reimagined space within the historic Dearborn Station. New architecture and state-of-the-art classrooms are designed as Dr. Maria Montessori envisioned it herself — as a children’s house or “Casa dei Bambini” — providing an enriching, nurturing and diverse education environment.

Our Students are encouraged to grow to their fullest academic, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual potential. We believe strongly that our students’ daily experience should be a happy and rewarding one.

Eagerness to learn, learning for the joy of learning and wanting to know as much about their world as possible is what we believe are invaluable qualities that we can instill in our children.

Our Philosophy is rooted in the Montessori Method. It’s our way of life — and we provide a foundation for academic and personal excellence and encourage the love of learning inherent in every child through participation and engagement.

Through the dynamic partnership of child, parent and educator in the school, home and community, a consistent Montessori framework to learning is developed, thus educating the full human capacity.
