Because Humboldt Park needs Montessori education. Our children need great education and parental support right from the start. There are an estimated 6,258 children in Humboldt Park needing early education or childcare and only 2,000 slots available for those children in programs like Head Start. 

We had hopes to begin our programming this year but were faced with some unfortunate setbacks regarding the building. However, we are not giving up. We are taking this year to do more research, more planning, and more preparing in order to create an even better program for the 2014-2015 school year. We are on the hunt for a building that will meet all the necessary requirements. We are working with key community members to help develop a public Montessori school in the neighborhood.

We believe in an education that allows children the freedom to develop their interests and connect intimately with the nature and culture around them. With the generous support of families in our beautiful city, we will create a school where all children, regardless of family income, can develop self-motivation and grit. Montessori has typically always been offered only to the wealthiest families, but we believe all children can and should be educated this way. Help us make that dream a reality. And, hey, while you are doing that, you get to drink awesome beer.
