Our Story

Alpha Montessori School has established itself as a leading Montessori School in Westchester, Illinois, providing high-quality education. At our school, we believe in creating an environment that fosters the natural curiosity and independence of young children. Our classrooms are thoughtfully designed to offer a wide range of materials that encourage children to explore and discover the world around them at their own pace. Our experienced teachers guide and support the children, helping them to develop important skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making. Our comprehensive Montessori curriculum includes seven distinct learning areas, including practical life, sensorial, language, math, science, geography/culture, and art, which provide a well-rounded educational experience for our students.

At our institution, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our students. All our staff members are trained in first aid and CPR, ensuring that they are prepared to handle any emergency situation. With over 20 years of experience, our staff brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our classrooms. Our teacher-to-student ratio is 1:10, allowing us to provide personalized attention to each child and address their individual needs. We take pride in offering a flexible approach to education, allowing our students to learn at their own pace and pursue their interests. Additionally, we accept Illinois Action for Children, making our school accessible to families from diverse backgrounds.

We understand that families have different schedules and needs, which is why we offer a variety of programs at our institution. Our full-day programs provide a comprehensive educational experience, with a curriculum that includes a variety of subjects and activities to engage children throughout the day. Our half-day programs offer a shorter day, perfect for families who prefer a more flexible schedule or for children who may not be ready for a full-day program. We strive to provide families with the options they need to ensure that their child's education fits seamlessly into their daily lives.

We offer mixed-age group classes, which means that children of different ages learn and grow together in the same classroom. This approach is based on the Montessori philosophy of education, which recognizes that children have different developmental stages and learn in different ways. By grouping children of different ages together, we create a supportive and collaborative learning environment where children can learn from each other and develop important social skills such as empathy, cooperation, and respect. Older children have the opportunity to become leaders and mentors, while younger children benefit from observing and learning from their peers. Our mixed-age group classes allow for a more natural and holistic learning experience that prepares children for success in their academic and social lives.

If you would like to learn more about our programs, curriculum, or enrollment process, we invite you to give us a call today at 708-865-0099. Our friendly staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with more information about our school. We would also be happy to schedule a visit for you to tour our classrooms and meet our teachers. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

My 2.5 year old son started at Alpha Montessori this year in February, and we have loved it! He loves going and is always so happy once we pick him up. He has been a little delayed with speech and even though he has only been there for about 2 months he is already saying a ton more words and phrases, even in Spanish too. We are also happy with his progression in doing things by himself like taking his shoes off and on and being without his special blanket and bottle during the day there. The schedule has been amazing for him and we appreciate that they have an outdoor play area which he loves as well. Highly recommend Alpha Montessori!

Couldn't be any happier for my son to attend this Daycare. Teachers are amazing, so caring and patient with the kids. My son is not only being taken care of but also is being taught. And I can definitely see it, at age 4 he knows how to add, the alphabet in English and Spanish. Knows his numbers up to 30. Knows his continents and so much more that honestly impresses me. His Spanish is so fluently and so is his English which as a Latino Family I'm extremely happy with. They keep them busy with activities that are not just fun but also educational. My SON LOVES IT!! Thank you Alpha Montessori :)

Alpha has become a second home to us and our little one. My 2yr old daughter has been attending Alpha for almost a year now and I can see the difference in her. Speaking Spanish, toilet training, and mathematics are just some of the skills she's been displaying while at home. I look forward to many more years with Alpha as they continue to work with my daughter and fast tracking her to a successful start of school.
