Montessori School

Beginning in 1975, the Buffalo Grove Montessori School has a long history of providing distinctive education to young children. A true partnership of parents, staff, alumni and community, BGMS offers opportunities for all to participate in the program. Accredited by the American Montessori Society, BGMS offers programs for children six weeks to six years, with both full- and part-time options. All classrooms are led by experienced and qualified Montessori teachers who are dedicated to the loving care and development of their students.

Each day our children enter beautifully-designed environments filled with materials that help children develop confidence, independence and concentration through active participation and hands-on learning. BGMS provides a multi-age setting for three- to six-year-old students, which promotes a “family style” community giving children the opportunity to learn at their own pace, as well as develop the leadership qualities necessary for academic success and personal growth.

In addition to our commitment to learning, BGMS is a great place for families. True believers in working with parents to develop happy, healthy, inquisitive children, we provide families with ongoing opportunities for involvement including parent development seminars, parenting forums, outings, parties and classroom participation.

At BGMS we believe that once you become a member of our family you are a member for life! We encourage continued involvement by our alumni, many who have returned as summer camp assistants, swim instructors or to teach special art or dance programs. Some members of our current teaching staff began their BGMS experience as students. We are a second-generation school who now serves the children of our former students. Each year BGMS hosts several family and alumni social events. Our family events are well-attended and enjoyed by all. Our annual Valentine’s Ball includes more than 300 friends, young and old, for an evening of dancing, gathering and family fun.

We serve families from all over the world. We welcome and enjoy the diversity within our student body. In celebration of our global community we are hosting a multicultural fair this spring. The event will take our families on a trip around the world exploring each of the seven continents. From traditional clothing, to foods, to discovering what animals thrive in each environment, we are excited to share all of our cultures and traditions.

BGMS is a year-round program and the fun continues all-year-round. Each summer the children participate in “special” summer themes and activities, which include field trips, swimming lessons (taught by our staff) and events such as the BGMS Olympics. Our summer program includes a special “camp” group of graduates from past years who return to continue their Montessori experience. This group also has opportunities to participate in neighborhood bike hikes, rollerblading, swimming and cooking. The summer camp program finishes with our annual camper family party, which includes special theme programs, camper performances and pizza for all.

So come visit us and see what Buffalo Grove Montessori has to offer you and your family.
