“The children in [Montessori] schools have proved to us that their real wish is to be always at work – – a thing never before suspected, just as no one had ever before noticed the child’s power of choosing his work spontaneously. Following an inner guide, the children busied themselves with something (different for each) which gave them serenity and joy.” – Maria Montessori
A Village Green Montessori School, in downtown Libertyville, is founded by resident Ann Phillips. Ann Phillips is an experienced Montessori Directress certified by the American Montessori Society. She began teaching at Highland Park Montessori (owned by her sister) in 1998. A Village Green Montessori is affiliated with the American Montessori Society, is registered with the Illinois Department of Education and the Illinois Association of Montessori Schools. The school will serve children ages two to six and include a kindergarten enrichment program.
The goal of the school is to help children become creative, competent individuals, who are fully aware of themselves, others, and the world around them. Additional goals include love of learning, self-motivation, persistence and concentration, habits of inner discipline and order, and increased self-esteem. To realize these goals, we have created a school where children can be themselves in an atmosphere of freedom and responsibility. A Village Green Montessori is a place where little ones will come joyfully and discover a love of learning.
Our academic year runs from late August through early June. We will follow the District 70 (Libertyville, IL) calendar. A six week summer camp will also be offered during summer. The school offers a wide variety of days and times, half-day and extended day programs are available. A morning or afternoon Kindergarten enrichment program is available to compliment public school Kindergarten. Our school has three 3-6 year old classrooms and one 2’s & Early 3’s classroom.
A Village Green Montessori School admits students of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin in administration of it’s education policies.
