NEW to the Illinois Valley Y
Montessori PreSchool and Kindergarten
In a Montessori class, children engage in interactive learning in a comfortable and busy, productive atmosphere where individualized work, group activities and stimulating classroom materials help a child to grow to her/his highest potential. Within the mixed age group of 3-6 year olds, cooperation replaces competition. The opportunity for daily repetition and progressive processes ensures that each child has the potential to learn a sense of order, habits of concentration, initiation of purposeful activity, self-control/discipline, curiosity and inner peace. The Montessori approach was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori and has over 100 years of successful results. Ms. Kim Becker with 17 years of experience is a certified Montessori School instructor.

Strong Kids Campaign 2014
Support the Y
Strengthen your Community
We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in kids, our health and our neighbors.
Donors enable the Y, a charitable, non-profit 501(c)3 organization to offer a financial assistance program for those individuals and families that qualify as well as providing program subsidy for much needed community programs.
In 2013 over $200,000 was allocated to 245 children and families for programs and memberships including: Camp, Childcare, Swim Team, Aquatics, Youth and Teens. And the Youth, Teens and Sports departments received over $35,000 in program subsidy.
