Founded in 1966, Joliet Montessori School is a non-denominational, not-for-profit, co-educational private school located in Crest Hill, Illinois, nurturing children ages 3 through 15 to reach their fullest individual potential.
Registered with the Illinois State Board of Education, we are the only fully recognized Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Montessori school in Will County.
AMI is the governing body established by Dr. Maria Montessori herself. Its mission, as stated on its website, is "to uphold Dr. Maria Montessori’s original vision through teacher training programs, school recognition and consultation, conferences and events." AMI pedagogical standards for schools ensure that each school is offering programs for their children that allow for their full intellectual, social and psychological growth.
