About Wheaton Montessori

Daily Life at Montessori

Life at Wheaton Montessori School takes place in much the same way it takes place in any community – students work, play, eat, rest and interact with each other. And like any other community, daily life at WMS includes more than work.


There is an emphasis on practical life, those lessons that teach attention and care for one’s self, one’s work, the classroom, and others. Time is enjoyed outdoors and children can spend time in book corners. We celebrate more than 100 Birthdays a year and traditional school work explored through Montessori materials alternates with opportunities for creative pursuits of all kinds.
