The faculty and staff of Grace Montessori School is committed to serve the need of the child and his family using Maria Montessori’s philosophy and pedagogy as its backbone. Using the Montessori Method, we are devoted to help each child develop the foundation essential for a lifetime of creative learning, in a nurturing environment. Our program emphasizes spontaneous activity, peer-teaching, responsible freedom, sensory-motor preparation for intellectual growth, process not product orientation, non-competitive atmosphere, auto-education, and social development. We support and acknowledge the responsibility of parents to be the prime educators of their children and as co-educators we provide an excellent learning program for children.
GMS is the only Montessori school in Melrose Park, Illinois that is open all day. The school serves the immediate community with quality care and education since December of 2001.
