Park View Montessori School in Chicago is located on Irving Park Road at the city’s beautiful lakefront. After more than 20 years in this location, we continue to encourage the development of the whole child: the academics as well as the physical, the personal as well as the social. Indoor and outdoor activities support the development of a healthy mind in a healthy body.
Park View Montessori supports the child as she prepares herself, not only for elementary school, but for life. Daily group lessons provide opportunities for community building. Small group activities promote turn-taking as well as problem solving. The outcome of the Toddler plus three year Children’s House experience is a child who has been treated with respect, and deals respectfully with self and others. She enjoys successful interactions with children and adults, and has acquired skills to help deal with the give-and-take of daily social interaction. She has an authentic appreciation of liking herself, and can feel able to meet challenges that are part of daily living.
“The child’s creative energy requires a loving and understanding response.” –Dr. Maria Montessori
