Welcome to Fox Valley Montessori School!We are a preschool & kindergarten learning center located in Aurora, IL. As a Montessori-based school, we advocate a child's right to know, achieve, belong, and be safe and to be a peaceful community member. Since 1969, we have had the privilege of educating children in the Aurora community. We are a not-for-profit child-centered school that is dedicated to the Montessori philosophy and we believe strongly in the principles of personal discovery, investigating and hands-on experience.Our school is aligned with the Montessori principals of multi-aged classrooms with purposeful activities in the area of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Science exploration. Offering classes for children 20 months through age 12 (6th grade), we also provide a Saturday morning parent/infant class. As they follow in the Montessori tradition, your child will learn how to work, both independently and as part of a team, and as they grow they will be able to take on more responsibilities in the classroom.We offer the classes for the following levels: * Parent-Infant: Birth - 2 yrs. (10-week Saturday morning class) * Toddlers: 20 mos. - 3 yrs. * Primary: 3 - 6 years old. * Elementary Basic: 6 - 9 years old. * Elementary Advanced: 9 - 12 years old * Summer - 3 years old to 12 years oldOur lead educators are trained and certified in the Montessori philosophy for the age group they teach. Children at Fox Valley Montessori School gain independence and a developed sense of creativity, while learning in a warm, caring environment. In addition to our every day curriculum, FVMS also offers childcare programs, before and after school care, and summer programs. Come and tour our facilities call us today to schedule a tour.
