Dedicated to Montessori Education and Lifestyles

Located in Geneva, less than thirty minutes away from Wheaton, Mansio Montessori is well acquainted with Wheaton’s educational atmosphere and charming culture. With Cantigny Park, the Cosley Zoo, The Morton Arboretum, and the DuPage County Historical Museum close by, we love encouraging parents to continue their children’s Montessori learning career outside the classroom!

As we care for Wheaton preschoolers, our dedicated staff provides children with a consistent and reliable education that encourages both social and academic excellence.

Montessori Method

The methods we implement at Mansio are unique, deeply contrasting those of the traditional schooling system. During a child’s early education, we understand the value of recognizing individual strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, we develop personalized curriculums and experiences based on each student.

To best achieve this, we tailor the education to each student and center our attention on a child-centered learning environment as opposed to one that is standardized. As a result, graduates from our program thrive in reading, math, development, and maturation promoting self-regulation and social consciousness.

We want to be a stark contrast to traditional schooling by investing in children beyond their ability to fill in bubbles on standardized tests. Within our multi-age classrooms, we believe there are unique learning opportunities to be found through socialization and children teaching other children in hands-on, play-focused education.

Applying the Montessori Method Since 1981

At Mansio Montessori, we continue to commit to these Montessori principles, investing in families among the Wheaton community since 1981. Our Montessori preschool program values the individual learning style and pace of each child. For parents who prioritize the same principles, we invite you to learn more about our approach and available Montessori preschool programs.

We desire to inspire a passion for learning within each child that they can carry with them as they grow and mature throughout their academic careers. The preschool ages prove as a prime time to begin formulating habits they can carry with them into healthy, balanced adulthood. If you want to learn more about our Montessori preschool programs and what these may look like for your child, please contact us to schedule a visit.
