After nearly four decades, Brickton Montessori is still committed to bringing the highest quality education to our families. We were one of the first Montessori schools in the area to be fully accredited by regional educational organizations, and we continue to follow Montessori best practices while embracing new technologies.

What’s involved in your popular summer camps?
Our summer camp programs are a time for creativity and exploration. Each week has a unique theme, which allows the students and teachers to delve deep into a subject matter. Campers learn about astronomy, botany, geography, history, and more, all presented in a fun and educational way. We embrace the great outdoors, including nearby forest preserves and parks, plus a splash day or two when temperatures climb!
