My daughter has been at Little People Montessori for two years, from age 3-5, and she loves it and so do we.
The school is well organized, businesslike, and safe. They have an administrative person who effectively handles all the billing and communications. Moreover, the director is responsive to parents’ concerns: Our daughter was having behavior problems this fall, and the director and teachers worked with us to develop a (successful) plan to address them. As a result of this attention, the parents at the school are happy.
The kids are happy because the teachers are outstanding. Instead of letting the kids color all day, the lead teachers make sure the kids are stimulated and engaged. They are patient and loving with all the kids, even the ones who are more challenging. As a result, you almost never see kids crying when they are dropped off, even in the littler kids’ room. There has been no turnover among teachers in the time my daughter has been there, which I think is unusual, and important to providing a stable environment.
They just added an exercise program once a week, to keep the kids moving, which demonstrates that they are not just on autopilot, but constantly trying to improve.
I would not hesitate to recommend this school.

My daughter Athena L-O-V-E-S it here. She just started this semester and is very excited to go. Everyday she asks ""is it a school night?"" she is so excited to go to school. Her teachers Ms. Abby, Ms. Maria and Ms. Vesta are so sweet and gentle with the kids. Even though the facility isnt very modern, its very organized, clean, many of montessori puzzels and games to play with and it simply full of love and good energy. She, loves the fact that they have fish and a frog in the classroom. Athena has serious peanut allergies and they are VERY mindful of it and I feel very good about leaving her there. The owner Regina and her assistant Michelle are great about letting you come and sit in on a class to check it out, which is what we did. My husband and I toured 2 schools in Oak Park, but we choose LPMS because the staff were so much more friendly. THANKS LPMS!!
