Garden Gate Montessori School is an educational alternative to the more traditional childcare, pre-school or kindergarten environment. Kathy Burmeister and Diane Brown sought to establish a Montessori school that would provide the children in our community with the best possible early experience. That idea became reality in the summer of 2000! Garden Gate Montessori has been established as a Montessori school fully dedicated to those whom it was meant to serve, the children.
The teachers of Garden Gate Montessori School bring to the classroom a unique expertise provided by extensive specialized training in the methods of Montessori education. Kathy and Diane have over 42 years of combined experience in the Montessori 3-6 year old classroom. This experience provides the children of Garden Gate Montessori with the appropriate guidance, assistance, challenges, and encouragement necessary to facilitate positive growth.
Also Garden Gate Montessori is proud to be a fully affiliated school with A.M.S. (American Montessori Society) and is recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education, and is certified by the Will County Health Department. Garden Gate Montessori has various programs available to meet your child’s needs. We offer half day, extended or full day options, three to five days a week. Tuition rates will be discussed when you come to visit.
