Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Aurora Montessori School in Aurora, IL. My name is Lisa and I am the director of this school. I have been here since 2000, initially serving as a Montessori Certified Primary teacher and later assisting to develop our current Stepping Stones Toddler program.

Our school first opened in 1999. Thousands of children have graduated from the program and after 21 years, we are proud to continue to offer an authentic Montessori education as well as amazing child care/daycare for the youngest friends in the Aurora/Naperville community!

We offer programs for children ages 18 months - Kindergarten. Montessori-certified teachers observe and offer guidance while children build their cognitive and creative abilities. We are also members of the Association of Illinois Montessori Schools.

Our beautiful STEAM Studio (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) continues to be a favorite place for students to visit each day! The STEAM Studio has been outfitted with tools to offer wider and deeper academic exploration.

We're pleased to offer our families access to Montessori Compass. This online resource enables parents to receive updates about their child's school experiences and communicate with their teacher.

Please call to schedule and tour! We’d love to have your child join us at Aurora Montessori School for a journey of learning through discovery!
