Twin Parks Montessori Schools have three facilities: Central Park Montessori, Park West Montessori, and Riverside Montessori. Our programs invite children to develop a love of learning for a lifetime. All of our children are nurtured, valued, and respected. Children are free to learn independently at their own pace; and learning is allowed to occur naturally. Parents can feel comfortable knowing that their children are cared for in an encouraging learning atmosphere—one that is supportive of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth.

The same meaningful love of learning happens at all of our Twin Parks Montessori Schools. A family’s choice of one school over the other is generally driven by the convenience of geographical location.

Mission Statement

Guided by the Montessori philosophy, we gently help children learn how to learn in a diverse, secure, prepared environment, laying a firm foundation for them to become confident, caring and successful human beings.

Our Philosophy

Twin Parks Montessori Schools provide nurturing, child-centered settings for children three months through five years of age. The schools are committed to building and fostering a community of life-long learners, using proven Montessori methodology, which has been successful for the past 100 years. While we focus on helping children master language, math, and sensorial experience at age-appropriate levels, we simultaneously nurture the development of conscientious, caring, and compassionate human beings.

“Our care of the children should be governed not by the desire to ‘make them learn things,’ but by the endeavor always to keep burning within them the light which is called intelligence.”

— Maria Montessori

At Twin Parks Montessori Schools, we rejoice in the basic tenet of Montessori: that children want to learn naturally. We believe that even the youngest child delights in seeing—and mastering—how the world works. Our teachers respect each child’s individual interests and abilities. Free to follow their own inner dictates, children acquire an ability to learn which is virtually unlimited; free to explore in prepared environments, they develop a sense of purpose, process, completion—and success.
