An atmosphere of discovery.
The Montessori School of Washington Park offers a tremendous experiential learning environment for children ages 15 months to 6 years in our Toddler Program and Primary Program. Through exploration and observation, children are encouraged to grow and develop socially, emotionally and academically at their own paces. Children learn through modeling and experimentation, aided by materials that provoke thought, bolster confidence and encourage awareness.
MSWP is a true community, non-profit school. Whether your child is in the Primary or Toddler program, we encourage and expect parent participation through our Parent Workbond Program. This requires that parents volunteer or donate 15 hours of time to the school per semester—and these are typically very simple contributions that add up over time. We have found that, in addition to deepening the sense of community (and keeping tuition rates lower), this experience gives parents an opportunity to become friends and form relationships that last a lifetime.
