    At Greenbrook Montessori School, our goal is to help your child cultivate the natural desire to learn. Our emphasis is on self-learning and the development of inner discipline. Our staff is prepared to interest your child and meet your child’s ever changing developmental needs.

    Greenbrook Montessori School is a community of educators and parents who share values, goals, methods and philosophies regarding child development and care. We adhere to Maria Montessori’s philosophy of “education for life.”

    Located in Hanover Park, Illinois, Greenbrook Montessori School enrolled its first students in September 2008, offering preschool programs for children aged 15 months through kindergarten. We are accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS).

    • 3 of my daughters have been students at Greenbrook and we couldn’t be happier with the program, staff and all our children have learned. Amazing program- best around. 5+ stars.

    • My children are loved and respected here, and it is obvious how invested every staff member has become in them both. We are forever grateful as we’ve already seen the results. Our son recently started 1st grade, and he is strides ahead of his peers.

    • Absolutely wonderful school. My daughter has been going since she’s been 2 years old, she is 4 now and to see her progress has been something incredible. Great school, teachers and atmosphere.

    • The teachers made a huge difference in my son’s life because they truly care. Greenbrook feels more like family and home instead of just another place to drop off our son. We love this school, and we love the people there! We would recommend to any friends without any hesitation!

    • Fantastic, safe, welcoming, wonderful place! I wish it went on through high school.

    • My son started attending this school when he was a toddler and now he is almost 6 years old. My son has learned a lot of skills at this school and is a very confident kid. Their administration is great and the teachers create a fun and loving environment.

  • Children Learn Through Discovery

    Montessori education is not only a philosophy, but also a method to guide the child’s growth.

    Experiences at a Montessori school foster academic success and the fulfillment of your child’s highest potential. Independence, concentration, and joyful learning are valued. We facilitate, encourage, and empower the children.
