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.
