Who We Are

Ravenswood Montessori School (RMS) is located at 1945 W. Wilson Ave., 2nd floor, Chicago, IL 60640.
We are open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Ravenswood Montessori School is a member of the American Montessori Society and Illinois Montessori Society. This is a child-centered educational approach that recognizes a child’s natural eagerness for knowledge, and ability to initiate learning. Here at RMS we value hands-on learning and provide an environment that fosters the students natural desire to learn.

The innovative premises we use at RMS are guided by Dr. Maria Montessori:

  • Children are to be respected as unique individuals, each developing at his or her own pace, according to specific developmental stages.
  • The most essential life skills, such as language development, are acquired from birth to age 6 and honed in the elementary and secondary years.
  • Children learn through purposeful activity.
  • Children possess unusual sensitivity and cognitive abilities for absorbing and learning from the people and objects in their environment.
