Let Nature Nurture Your Child

Enroll your child at Olive Tree School House

Each child has different needs. Traditional classrooms can’t always give children the dedicated attention and support they need to flourish. Olive Tree uniquely offers an organic setting, which embraces the true Montessori vision, including nature and all the beauty and inspiration that it provides. Olive Tree School House is designed to provide an individualized education that every child deserves. Owners Lindsay Rice and Stephanie Beaulieu saw a need for organic pre-school and early child development centers. They founded Olive Tree School House in Saint Charles, IL to help fill that need.

The word "olive tree" within many languages symbolizes "strength within the earth", "to shine and be brilliant" and "peace, harmony, and friendship".

At Olive Tree School House we teach each child in an indoor and outdoor environment in a small, one-on-one setting. Every child has unique abilities. We’ll teach them in a natural environment where they can be themselves and foster their love of learning. At Olive Tree, the education, confidence, and development of each child is paramount.

Call 708-995-5751 now to learn more about our educational style.

Olive Tree's vision is to ensure a comfortable, home-like classroom and environment for each student. Our school house is located in a beautiful wooded cabin situated within 2.5-acres of wooded land in St. Charles, IL and contains an open-concept classroom with an abundance of natural light. Additionally, a large outdoor classroom and "outdoor work" areas serve the children for significant parts of each day (weather permitting).

Our Mission at Olive Tree School House

is to ignite a love for learning within the children we serve. Olive Tree provides a therapeutic and nurturing environment where children build and develop a respect for the natural earth, their social surroundings, and society as a whole, all while respecting and cherishing their inner selves.
