About Our School
Open daily from 7:30am to 5:30pm and conveniently located on Springfield’s west side in a quiet, residential
neighborhood since 1987, The Montessori Schoolhouse offers education based on the Montessori Method.
The school currently serves students ranging from 3 years old and up. In addition to the Montessori curriculum,
the children are involved in a myriad of activities including swimming classes, art activities, gardening, foreign
language instruction (Spanish & Japanese), field trips, and other supervised outdoor activities.
As a full member of the The American Montessori Society, the Montessori Schoolhouse offers a full Montessori
educational experience for children ages 3 and up. With a Certified Montessori Teacher in each classroom and
a low student to teacher ratio, you can be sure that your child is getting a child-centered educational experience
that builds on children's natural inclination to learn. Montessori teachers guide rather than instruct, linking each
student with activities that meet their interests, needs, and developmental level.
Based in the Montessori Method, students engage in a wide range of age-appropriate, self-guided learning
including: Sensorial and Spacial, Language and Reading, Math, Practical Living, Science, Foreign Language
(Spanish and Chinese), Science, Art, and Music. Students also go on several field trips such as The Apple
Barn, Maple Syrup Time, and attending plays and the Illinois Symphony Orchestra at UIS.
Starting following the conclusion of the school year the Montessori Schoolhouse offers a 12 week summer
program. The program includes daily Montessori classes for children ages 3 to 10. After the conclusion of
morning classes, utilizing our Montessori curriculum, the children are involved in a myriad of activities. These
activities include swimming classes, art activities, gardening, foreign language instruction (Spanish & Chinese),
and other supervised outdoor activities.
