Hi Jennifer - You might like Children's Garden Montessori on Lombard.  My son is in the 2-3 year old room (diapers allowed). They offer the option of full-day care 5 days/wk which is great for our household.  They are loosely Montessori with some other early childhood education influences.  It is a very small, close-knit school with less than 20 students run by Ms. Roshan Mawani for the past 32 years.  (Note their web site is 10 years out of date, and you can't find much out about them online, but I'm happy to answer any questions or send contact information.)  We've been there since Aug and are very happy with the school.

I'm not sure if they currently are running a Saturday class, but we enjoyed Music Together at Oak Leyden:

Hi Jennifer,


We've gone to Musikgarten on Harrison and liked it.  They do have Saturday classes for toddlers but they tend to fill up pretty quickly, so not sure if there are any openings.


Good luck!

Hello again - we are researching various Montessori schools in the Oak Park area appropriate for 2-3 age range and above.  Please let me know if you have any experiences or recommendations regarding schools. We are particularly interested in schools that cater to working parents (full day programming). Thanks so much in advance.

Hello - we are looking for any weekend music lesson options (toddler music group or even individual lessons at this point if it seems developmentally appropriate and the price is right) for our 2 1/2 year old who is obsessed with musical instruments. I've had a really tough time finding anything that is not completely filled up. We both work full time so weekdays aren't an option. Any input from other working parents or those who know the options around Oak Park, much appreciated.

Just wanted to say hello... I'm not a mom, but I'm a single dad, so I think that qualifies me.  My son is 9 and he attends Lincoln.  Happy Holidays in advance!

I have a 2 1/2 week old son and am looking for a nanny share beginning January 2, 2013. Does anyone know of another family that would be interested in finding a nanny to share or does anyone know a nanny that is available??

Hi everyone, I have a four month old black and brown beagle and I have to give her up sell her to a good family. One of family members is allergic. She is trained to pee and poo outside, she is very playful and adorable.She comes with everything with food, bed, toys and leash. We paid 250 for her but if anyone is willing to pay a 100, it would be wonderful. Text me for pictures 773 540 9563
