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), are a full member of the Association of Illinois Montessori Schools and are an ExceleRate rated school for the state of Illinois.

My name is Karen Zehnal and I am the Head of School. I was a founding parent of Aurora Montessori School when we opened in 1999 and am the proud parent of three of our graduates. I joined the faculty in 2003 after obtaining my AMS Montessori Early Childhood Credential from Seton Montessori Institute.

Our school hosts up to 160 students a year in eight classrooms, each led by a certified Montessori educator holding a MACTE-accredited Montessori Early Childhood Teaching Certificate. We currently offer individualized programs for children ages 18 months to six years old. Our school offers half-day, school-day and full day programs with before- and after-school child care options.

We also now offer enrichment opportunities for students in our new STEAM (Science, Technology, Education, Arts and Mathematics) Studio!

We encourage parents to participate in our program, including in our active parent support organization, classroom volunteering and monthly family events. We are committed to fostering a strong community for 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.
