About Us

All Day Montessori was founded in 1995 by local educators, Paula and Richard Bukacek, to offer preschool through kindergarten programs for children of working families. This meant offering a full day of preschool that corresponded with a typical work day from 8:00am to 5:00pm.  Our current day has been extended to meet the needs of our working moms and dads.  ADM is open from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

The mission of All Day Montessori is to serve children’s developmental needs in ways that are consistent with Maria Montessori’s educational philosophy. All Day Montessori is committed to providing a safe, nurturing and educational alternative for the children of working parents who want more for their children than daycare or traditional preschool.

Located in the Beverly Hills/Morgan Park community of Chicago, All Day Montessori serves children from Chicago’s far southwest side and surrounding areas.
