What's Our Goal and Mission
For parents that need quality education and care for their children, Mansio Montessori of Geneva provides a loving atmosphere in which your child’s mind, body and spirit can flourish. More than 900 children have grown with Mansio’s individualized instruction since 1981. We are certified by the American Montessori Society to strict standards. Mansio Montessori of Geneva is located in a residential neighborhood in Geneva, Illinois and is one block from the scenic Fox River. Our school is located in a renovated 3,000 square foot residence, which is home to five classrooms and administrative offices, and we are a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation.
Mansio Montessori of Geneva’s mission is to establish a foundation for lifelong love of learning through critical thinking and probing dialogue in a safe, nuturing, and stimulating environment. Through the development of self-worth, the child grows into a talented, motivated, contributing member of society. We encourage parents to visit our school before enrolling their child, because we feel it is important to understand the program, the people, and the place in which their child will invest formative years before primary school. If you value innovative thinking and  nurturing your child’s potential, Mansio Montessori of Geneva offers an alternative that is as unique as your child.


Learning Through Doing

Art Program

Art Class




Art is an inherent part of the Toddler and Pre Primary Program and is integrated into the daily work time.

Our Art teacher gives a weekly lesson to all the classes exploring all mediums of the art process…drawing, painting,and sculpture to enhance their appreciation of the varied art forms.

Our music program is built upon the belief that every child is talented. The curriculum is based upon music literacy, self -expression, and an exploration of the music around the world.

Children freely explore with bells, rubbing sticks together, waving scarfs and a host of auditory experiences to increase their discrimination skills.

In addition, there are presentations on famous music composers and instruments.

Summer Program

Each summer Mansio chooses a 2 week theme for our Pre-Primary Program. Each two week session is designed to provide time for reading and writing, science experiments, arts and crafts, songs and games, gardening and field trips related to the theme.

Also all our Montessori educational materials are available to all the children.

Subjects this summer include: “Food, Flowers and Fruit”, Jumping from Continent to Continent”, Awesome Careers”, and TAM– Theatre, Arts and Music.


In addition to the core curriculum, Mansio Montessori offer a Spanish program to the Toddler and 3 to 6 Programs once a week. Our Spanish teacher highlights basic vocabulary along with integrating the Montessori materials into the curriculum.

This exposure to a foreign language builds on the auditory awareness skill that is inherent in a child muscular memory.

Mansio provides Before and After School Care. The school offers flexible Before and After Care to all of our children. The children enjoy a wide range of activities to outdoor play.

The school opens with Before Care from 7:30 to 8:15 with the children joining their regular class at 8:15 am. After school care is 5:00 to 6:00 pm.
