Young children ponder big concepts, like "How many seconds in a day?" In Brickton Montessori's Children's House classroom, this investigation was explored in earnest and even led our big thinker to the Lower Elementary in order to satisfy this exploration. What an amazing gift we give to children when we provide the space for big questions!

Brickton Montessori is giving thanks for our communities today. Our annual tradition of gathering older students to pass on traditions to the younger ones continues as our Kindergarten through 8th grade students convened on the playground, hands-free, to do our Thanksgiving rhyme, "Quaker, Quaker." Additionally, our Children's House classrooms made friendship soup, while our Upper Elementary room had a potluck banquet.
Brickton's Meal of the Month: Sweet & Tart in Park Ridge (112 S. Prospect Ave.), (847) 518-555, would like to welcome the Brickton community offering curbside or takeout in addition to dine-in this Tuesday, October 26, 11 AM to 9 PM!

Current Brickton parent and entrepreneur, Jamie Kendall (mom to Shelley, Upper Elementary) is co-owner and has offered to give 15% of the proceeds from this event back to Brickton. Make sure that Sweet & Tart knows you are supporting Brickton Montessori School on this day by announcing your Brickton connection so we can track our support!

Sweet & Tart offers family-friendly savories and sweets as well as fun grown-up beverages. Tuesdays they offer mixed buckets of beer for $15. Hope you can participate!
Brickton wants to give much gratitude to one of our Children's House parents and grandparents for beautifying our outdoor spaces. The students were so excited to join in the fun! #bricktonmontessorischool #fallplanting #bricktonvolunteers
What an amazing first day of school! It was so fulfilling for all of us to have our classrooms full of students again. #bricktonmontessori #firstdayofschool #montessorieducation #bricktoncommunity

Brickton Montessori's promotion and graduation ceremonies were a little closer to home this year, as we took advantage of our very own outdoor spaces to gather and celebrate our students. We honor our children transitioning from one program to the next (Kindergarten, 3rd grade, and 6th grade) and celebrate our 8th graders moving on to bigger adventures. Thank you to everyone for a successful 2020-21 school year! #bricktonmontessori #bricktonbold #authenticmontessorispaces #celebratestudents

What do Brickton's 8th grade graduates do to celebrate their graduation? Why, start a pick-up basketball game on the playground, of course. One of their teachers even got in on the action! Congratulations to our graduates on all their accomplishments.

Brickton is an accredited private Montessori school inspiring learners 3 months through 8th grade, i In 1986, a group of committed parents and Montessori educators opened Brickton Montessori School as an educational alternative that presents learning as a joyful, exciting process.

The school of two staff members and four children opened that summer in the basement of a local church and by August moved into a portion of a local public elementary school. Brickton expanded to five classrooms in its new location and began offering programs to children ages two through twelve years. By the spring of 1989, Brickton had outgrown its space at the public school and moved to its pres

In 2002, Brickton broke new ground when we implemented one of the premier Montessori Middle School programs in Chicago. Twenty years later, we are proud to continue offering a focused, dynamic curriculum for young teens.

Each term, Middle School directors Anna Goldsmith and Charles Martin lead their students through meaningful and relevant lessons. The fully accredited Middle School classroom is noted for its focus on offsite community service projects, encouraging students to learn their capabilities while making a difference in their worlds.

Blending seventh and eighth grades builds trust and interpersonal skills between students. To learn more, visit http://www.brickton.org/programs/middle-school-12-14-years/
