Welcome to the Montessori School of Lemont. For 35 years we have nurtured the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of children from age three through eighth grade according to the methods and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Scientific research has shown that:
  • Children thrive on order, routine, and ritual.
  • We learn best when we are interested in what we are learning.
  • People thrive when they feel a sense of choice and control.
  • We learn best when our learning is situated in meaningful contexts.
  • Extrinsic rewards reduce motivation and level of performance once the rewards are removed.
  • Children can learn very well from and with peers; after age 6 children respond well to collaborative learning situations.
