Primary Class
Preschool / Kindergarten

(2.5 - 6 years)


This class promotes individuality, confidence, responsibility for one’s self and fellow peers, respect for the classroom, and freedom to participate in many different activities as the child develops. The freedom to pursue own self interests by choosing activities enables the child to exercise some control over his or her life.

The Spring Grove Montessori Academy serves Spring Grove, Fox Lake, Richmond, Johnsburg, Antioch, Round Lake beach Illinois. We are a private pre-school which is a major step beyond daycare and kindergarten. The Montessori method is a superior education program.


At Vernon Hills Montessori Academy, the kindergarten child is presented with endless opportunities to develop all his senses and his motor skills with the aid of self-correcting materials in a prepared setting. During the third year a child can not only work with these materials in more depth, thus gaining more insights from them, but, using this base, can move into the academic areas.

Next, having learned from older children, shared with peers and helped younger children, our kindergarteners have the opportunity to assume leadership within the classroom.

In our school, the kindergartners enjoy and benefit from being involved in many enrichment classes, such as private piano, guitar, voice, throwing, gymnastics lessons and more.
