  • Dear Parents,  

    Thank you for visiting the Little Blossom Montessori website. It is my privilege to take on the role of Head of School. I have had the opportunity to get to know many of you and I look forward to continuing our relationship. It is through these powerful interactions that we can have the greatest impact. We are a community of learners with a passion for children. Through our individual and collective work, we contribute to the shaping of the optimal environment. I am excited about all the wonderful things taking place at Little Blossom Montessori School right now; it is a great time to be a part of this thriving community. 

    Little Blossom Montessori School is a full membership Montessori school in Illinois. Many of our teachers have been with us for impressively long tenures. I am deeply impressed by the unbelievable talent, energy and effort contributed by our faculty and staff. Whether you are new to the school, or a family that is returning to educate the next generation, you will find Little Blossom a warm and friendly place where we embrace each other’s differences, value our partnerships, encourage individual growth and celebrate one another’s successes. 

    Research has shown that the best predictor of future success is confidence along with a positive sense of self. Our carefully structured classrooms are led by knowledgeable, Montessori-trained and certified teachers, provide self-directed, competitive activities that help our students develop their sense of self and the confidence to face future challenges with optimism. 

    Little Blossom Montessori School hopes that the information provided on our website will answer most of the questions you may have about our school. However, for further assistance, please feel free to call our office at 630-375-9140, where you will reach our Director, and she will answer any additional questions you have and set up an appointment for a guided tour where you can experience the sights and sounds of our beautiful community. The faculty and staff look forward to seeing you soon. 

    Warm regards, 
    Siji George 
    Founder & Head of School 

    • We and our children love Little Blossom! The staff are very caring and we are very impressed with how our little ones have grown academically since joining the school. Our kindergartener just graduated and we feel she’s extremely prepared to enter 1st grade.

    • My son absolutely loves going to Little Blossom for preschool. We’ve noticed a huge boost in his level of independence and social skills since he started attending 3 months ago. The staff is very kind and great communicating with the parents.

  • Why Montessori?
    Why choose Montessori for my child?

    Our experienced Montessori trained teachers and faculty follow the revolutionary philosophy and educational approach of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our Montessori program and prepared classrooms provide creative and stimulating hands-on learning experiences that foster age appropriate development.

    Positive reinforcement is important for children to develop a healthy self-esteem in an environment that supports free expression, independence and enthusiasm for learning.

    What is the Montessori curriculum?

    The Montessori curriculum emphasizes learning as a process. We offer five challenging, individually-focused education and social development programs that allow children to grow at their own pace.

    Our interrelated curriculum is focused on Practical Life, Language, Sensorial, Mathematics, Geography and Science. Each area helps develop the complete – or whole – child and allows them to function successfully in their current environment and in the future.

    Since Montessori is self-directed, will my child learn social skills?

    Yes. While the Montessori Method does foster independence and growth through individual work, it also places great emphasis on the importance on the development of social skills.

    Little Blossom Montessori teaches children to respect themselves, their peers, teachers, parents, community and the environment. We also teach them how to be courteous, polite and helpful.

    How will my child adjust to traditional school after Montessori?

    This is one of the most common questions parents ask. Whether it be kindergarten, middle school or college, at some point in life most Montessori students will begin some other type of school.

    Life is full of change and as long as children are equipped with the necessary coping tools and skills, they will be well-prepared with their Montessori education and experiences.
