Diamante Montessori School is an AMS affiliated Montessori school located in the Glen Ellyn, Illinois area. The school was formed by two parents and an experienced Montessori teacher as a nonprofit organization and was incorporated in July, 2002.

The school was formed in order to provide parents another option for Montessori education for their children in the Glen Ellyn and surrounding communities. With minimal investigation, we quickly discovered that there was a large unfulfilled demand for quality preschool Montessori education. Our hope is that Diamante will help close that gap in our community and give parents another option for preschool education.

Our Philosphy

  • Hire the best teachers and treat them exceptionally well
  • Provide a healthy, clean environment in which the teachers and children are happy and can grow.
  • Communicate, educate and gain involvement of parents

In our opinion, these three items are essential for a successful Montessori educational environment.

About Our Name

Diamante is Italian for diamond, which represents not only the high value of a good education but the value we have for our children. Every child is unique as every diamond is by cut, color and size, while both are resilient and contain a great potential to be brought out with the proper direction and refinement. A child’s educational and life experiences at an early age are as enduring as a diamond.
