The mission of Alta Vista Montessori school is to provide a developmentally based learning environment founded upon Montessori principles that guide and nurture the natural blossoming of the whole child.
In 1998, educators dedicated to the educational theories of Dr. Maria Montessori, founded Alta Vista Montessori School. It was the first Montessori school established in the Village of Libertyville and it is the only AMI recognized Montessori School in Libertyville. Even though our school is young, we have grown from 10 students in our very first class to 100 students, which is our full capacity at our current facility. In 2002 our first Toddler Community class was established for children 18 to 36 months.
Our facility was designed especially as a Montessori school. Our classrooms are fully equipped with all the approved Montessori materials, filled with natural light and with access to outdoor play areas and gardens. Alta Vista Montessori School is recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), is a member of the Illinois Montessori Schools Association and is committed to the highest standards of Montessori education. Alta Vista Montessori School is a private school registered with the Illinois State Board of Education and the Toddler Community is licensed by DCFS.
