Oak Park and River Forest for these many years!
Goals of the Forest Park Montessori Child Development Center
We believe that parents and the environment they create at home are the chief educational influences in the life of the child. As a school we want to be with you in discovering who your child is, and what are his/her needs as he/she enters into the adventures of life. It is our goal to help your child become a creative, competent human being, who is fully aware of him/herself, of others, and of the world around him/her.
Other goals include love of learning, self-motivationreased self-esteem, persistence and concentration, habits of inner discipline and order.
To realize these goals, we have to create at Forest Park Montessori a place where children can be themselves in an atmosphere of freedom and responsibility. It is a place where little ones will come joyfully and become absorbed and interested in their learning.
Parents are brought into this atmosphere as much as possible through a host of interesting activities. Often friendships made in this “family” will last a lifetime. Please accept this invitation to join us in this educational adventure.
The educational policies of the school are the responsibilities of the Educational Director, Marian Zeidman. It is her task to give guidance and inspiration to the faculty. She is ready to answer parent inquiries and welcomes the many visitors who are interested in our programs and wish to observe the classes in action.
