Situated at 3854 Washington Avenue in Grand Center, this new facility will both train future teachers and certify them in Montessori education. It will also have a school on-site in which experienced teachers and teachers in training will work with infants and Toddlers.
Montessori education and instruction emphasizes independence as well as a respect for a child’s natural development. Part of Montessori training includes teaching young children to clean-up after themselves but also to take turns serving their fellow classmates. Low cabinets and sinks were installed at the center so that children aged 3-5 can wash plates and prepare meals.
The Montessori Training Center is another welcome addition to the ever-developing Grand Center area, and UIC was excited to be a part of this redevelopment. We will continue to work with The Montessori Training Center as they complete their master plan in Grand Center.
