Welcome to Aurora Montessori!

Welcome to our Aurora Montessori School in Aurora, IL, where we offer a true, individualized Montessori experience for each of our students. We are affiliated with the American Montessori Society (AMS) and ascribe to all of their principles and values. Each of our teachers holds a Montessori Early Childhood Teaching Certificate, which you will find posted outside each classroom. Our school is also a member of the Association of Illinois Montessori Schools.

Our Head of School, Karen Zehnal, was a founding parent of Aurora Montessori School when we opened in 1999, and she is the very proud parent of three of our graduates. She joined the faculty in 2003, after obtaining her AMS Montessori Early Childhood Credential from Seton Montessori Institute. Our Assistant Head of School, Lisa Babcock, is also Montessori Certified and has been a member of the faculty since August of 2000.

At Aurora Montessori School, each child is celebrated and offered individualized opportunities to satisfy his or her natural yearning for knowledge. Our teachers have more than 150 years of combined experience, which gives our families a level of confidence you just can’t find anywhere else. We currently offer individualized programs for children ages 18 months to six years old. Our school offers half-day, school-day, and before- and after-school child care options.

We encourage parents to participate in our program in many ways, including an active parent support organization, classroom volunteering and monthly family events. We are passionately committed to fostering a strong community with the children and families of our school by offering many opportunities for them to meet and develop strong friendships.

Please call us to learn more about all we have to offer. We look forward to meeting you and providing your child with an excellent experience at our Montessori School in Aurora, IL.
