Council Oak Montessori School will open for in-person learning in September. With a focus on ensuring both the emotional and physical health of their students, Council Oak plans to utilize small class sizes and outdoor classrooms to ensure a positive learning environment. While following all State health and hygiene guidance, families can look forward to in-person school this fall.

Students will find plenty of opportunities to socially distance at school with 32,000 square feet of indoor space, including a full sized gymnasium and an outdoor space full of wildflowers, fruit trees, berries, surrounding the playground. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are able to be used year round. With careful use of these spaces, Council Oak is able to follow all health considerations during the pandemic. They are also able to keep their commitment to a thriving Montessori program.


For over 30 years Council Oak Montessori has kept its commitment to a Montessori program which nurtures the whole child. In that time they have seen many changes. With careful planning on the part of teaching and administrative staff, they are confident that they will maintain that legacy.

The school is also offering an online option based on the dynamic remote learning system they developed in March 2019. If you are interested in learning more about this program or in touring the facilities, please call (708) 926-9720 or visit their website at and click the “schedule a tour” button in the top right corner of the webpage. A member of staff will contact you shortly.
