About The Patch

The Pumpkin Patch Montessori Preschool was founded in 2007 and transitioned from a traditional daycare setting to a full-scale Montessori Pre-Primary and Primary Montessori Preschool in 2014. The student to teacher ratio is 6:1 and students are accepted into the program at two years old through entrance to their kindergarten year. The Patch is an all-year program and is licensed through The State of Illinois as a Licensed In-Home Daycare.

It is a science and art driven preschool that holds Montessori as its foundational philosophy and tool for creating and teaching curriculum. The students drive the sequence and scope of the curriculum and are free to explore their interests as deeply and widely as they choose.

The Patch hosts an annual Art Exhibit to showcase the student’s past academic year’s educational explorations and to honor the hard work the students put into their learning units and growth and development.
