Montessori Studio

NNM is excited to launch the Montessori Studio at 1510 W. Division! The space and classes have been thoughtfully designed for young hands and minds to explore, engage, and discover alongside their parent/caregiver.

Program registration for the Montessori Studio is open to friends, families, and neighbors of the Near North community. These classes run in sessions, separate from our general admissions process for the school year.
