Welcome to Naperville Montessori School in Naperville, IL. My name is Denise Testin and I have been the director of this school since 2006.
Naperville Montessori School opened in 1999 with a commitment to provide a true Montessori experience for our students. Our programs offer exploration and learning in math, language, science, history, geography, botany, practical life skills, sensorial and art.
We are pleased to offer year round programs for children two years old through kindergarten. Our school strongly encourages family involvement and we provide many opportunities throughout the year for families to participate in their child’s education.
Stop in to learn more about Naperville Montessori School. I look forward to meeting you!
