About Us

Montessori Academy of Glen Ellyn (MAGE– pronounced ‘Maggie’ for short) is a community of children, parents, and educators dedicated to a dynamic learning experience based on the Montessori philosophy. We have been providing educational excellence in DuPage County for over 50 years. Located on 1.5 acres just north of downtown Glen Ellyn, our Montessori trained teachers provide a hands-on experience for Toddlers, Pre-school/Kindergarten, Elementary, and Middle School students. We also offer before & after school programs, tutoring, music programs, and community based field trips.

Guided by Maria Montessori’s philosophy of respect for each individual child, we have designed our facility to meet the academic, emotional, physical, and social needs of each student within an inviting, home-like setting. The time-tested Montessori approach to experiencing the Sciences, Math, and Language also helps ensure each child’s readiness whenever they enter the world of traditional or higher education. Children are encouraged to explore the meticulously prepared outdoor and indoor environments at their own pace.

All parents want the very best for their children. Our mission is to help each child develop to his or her fullest potential in a climate of joy, respect, and freedom within limits. Contact us to meet our staff and tour our facility today.
