Welcome to Prairie View Montessori Aurora, IL

Education is our priority. Educating with love is our specialty!

Education is not just schooling. Genuine education is about the joys of discovery and the deep satisfaction of realizing one’s potential. The Montessori approach provides education for life. At Prairie View Montessori our goal is to create an environment where this can happen for every child, at every age.

The Montessori Method

Although we sometimes hear the word “philosophy” applied to Montessori education, it is not a set of beliefs, but rather a scientific method, an approach to the child which has as its core a fundamental respect for the abilities with which each child is endowed.

The Prepared Environment

Children are born with certain abilities, but they don’t develop them in a void! They need a carefully prepared environment, which meets their needs at each level of development, in order to fully realize their potential.
