Thank you for your interest in the Montessori Children’s Schoolhouse (MCS). We are excited to share our school with you.

Since 1968, MCS has provided guidance and educational opportunities as vast as a child’s desire to discover. We offer toddler, early childhood, kindergarten, and elementary programs. Stimulating classroom environments promote creativity and exploration that help students develop a love for learning. We emphasize respect for others, respect for oneself, and respect for the environment to help prepare our students for a lifetime of success, both inside and outside of the classroom. MCS welcomes children of any age, race, religion, color, national, and ethnic origin.

We invite you to schedule a visit!

We are the only accredited Montessori in
Northwest Indiana and South Chicago Suburbs!
