Lectura is a Montessori based curriculum school with an emphasis on the development of reading in English and Spanish. We provide an environment that encourages children to learn at their own comfortable pace. No pressure is placed on the children, but they are encouraged to do their very best work. Our quality programs and education are offered at an affordable rate as compared to other local Montessori based schools. All learning is nurtured in an environment that celebrates and explores cultural differences.
One of the greatest strengths of the school is the highly trained and superbly qualified teachers who take a personal interest in their students and parents. They care about the whole person and see education as much more than simply the training of fine minds. Our dedicated teachers form the foundation of a caring community in which children develop and learn to become responsible, loving human beings.
Lectura is located in Berwyn Illinois and we also serve the communities of Oak Park, Forest Park, West Chicago, Cicero, and North Riverside.
We at Lectura invite you to visit our program by arranging a school tour.
Lectura’s mission is to provide children with experiences that lay a foundation for reading in English and Spanish through the Montessori framework. We believe that children learn to read naturally and “organically” when reading is integrated into every facet of the classroom. Our program is designed to allow children to flow through a sequence of Montessori activities that develop: letter sound recognition, phonics, and word building that lead to fluent reading.
Children grow at a unique pace and have unique interests and we respect both. Their individual development is observed and documented. Above all, the goal for our children is that they are in an environment that allows them to love to learn.
The Montessori Method is based on the child's tendencies to explore, become independent and to make decisions. The classroom environment allows opportunities for this to happen. It is prepared with materials that are arranged in sequential order according to specific subject areas (Practical life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Cultural - geography, life sciences, movement, art, music), by the teacher.
Montessori is also a method of education based on the observations, methods and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. This method of education focuses on the development of the whole child in all areas of life, and supports the idea that children possess an innate desire to explore, discover, and learn. This is supported best within a social environment that inspires personal development.
