Montessori Learning Center

Hi,
I'm looking at pre-schools for my 2 year old in Edison Park. Can anyone share their experience at the Montessori Learning Center at Pratt and Oliphant? Any other suggestions for a good toddler preschool/daycare center?
Thanks!

  • Jenny - my son is 5 1/2 and has been going there since he was 3. We absolutely love it there. Ms. Soossan is the director/owner and she is fantastic. My son has learned so much there. Our twin girls will be going there as soon as they are 2. I think there is an option to send a private message through every block, so if you have additional questions, please send me a message. Thanks!

  • We have two kids there and love it. The staff has always been great with our kids. Feel free to also contact me.

  • Thanks Christy and Chris.

  • Ebinger Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Great principal, fantastic supportive and caring parents. Fund raisers continue to be utilized to support programs for the school. Ongoing changes have been implemented-many art programs have been created, computer lab is up and running, smart boards in each room and iPad carts are available. Now they are focusing on improving the Physical Education (grounds and programs) for the school. Theyh ave Math Night, Literacy Night and Science Night for families to involve their kids. There are off-campus trips for 4th (White Pines Ranch), 6th (New York) and 8th (Washington DC) graders. Principal meets with parents 1x/month. Doors are open for communication. Needs: upgrade rating system for grading especially the exploratory classes. Additionally kids with higher academic prospects need to be challenged and upper grade teachers need to be more creative to motivate their students.

Potholes are slowing traffic

Good job City of Chicago. Haven't seen potholes repaired yet. It's been keeping the speeders under control! Just drive down most O streets north if Touhy and you'll see what I mean. In the meantime keep the Harley in the garage. You'll risk being swallowed up in a pothole!

Best Friday Fish Fry?

Where can one find the best Friday Fish Fry?

  • Bob

    We like the Mecca. Closest to a good old fashioned Wisconsin fish fry. Only thing missing is the ball of cheese on the table & potato pancakes. Food is very good.
