The Kankakee Valley Montessori School was established in March 1968 as a private, not-for profit preschool by a group of concerned parents. We continue to run under a Parent-run Board of Directors.KVMS is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and Accredited by the Illinois State Board of Education. The school serves children from the ages of two to six years. The development of self-confidence, independence, concentration and the love of learning in a carefully prepared environment is emphasized. The program is based on the educational method developed over a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori. The purpose of the Kankakee Valley Montessori School is to provide an early education program in which the foundations for a lifetime of creative learning are developed effectively and efficiently in the child. More specifically, to develop within the school a learning environment which surrounds the child with maximum motivation and opportunities to learn and achieve in directions consistent with his or her individual level of maturation. The emotional and social development of the child is an important part of the school. We seek to create a warm, loving, respectful atmosphere. Emphasis is placed on helping children express feeling in constructive ways to develop social skills and a sense of responsibility for their own behavior within the school community. A philosophy of “Freedom within limits” provides the basic framework for the children’s interaction with the environment and each other.
