Lilypad Nursery & Preschool is thrilled to be bringing our Montessori Inspired early childhood education center to the West Loop. What does it mean to be Montessori Inspired? It means that our toddler and pre-primary classrooms follow the traditional Montessori structure with five learning areas: Sensorial, Practical Life, Language Arts, Mathematics, & Cultural Studies. We also recruit, and employ certified Montessori teachers and believe in the power of child led learning. The slight difference in our approach is that we infuse our lilypad leap™ curriculum which incorporates an award winning approach to literacy development into the our lesson planning.
Our space is cozy and our class sizes are small, affording lots of individual attention to each child. Each dragonfly and tadpole loft accommodates 8 children, and each of these programs has a 1:5 ratio. We are meticulous with every detail of our space and we look forward to sharing our sanctuary with you and your child.
