School Information


Located on just under one acre of wooded land and just minutes from downtown Downers Grove, Pathway Montessori is an inviting learning environment serving children 3 to 6 years of age, since 2006. Pathway made it's home in a completely renovated single-story home that meets the standards of local municipal building & fire safety codes.  

Our school is founded on the Montessori principal: to build a community of adult support around each child's developmental path. When teachers and parents work in compliment to create a dynamic environment where children's bountiful curiosity is nurtured, their love of learning lasts a lifetime.
