Weineckers has been our daycare home since my daughter was 1. She started in the toddler room there and is now getting ready to go to Kindergarten. Education-wise, she is definitely ready. Montessori has more than prepared her for Kindergarten and I'm not worried one bit about her ability moving int... See More
I like the people a lot. Everyone seems to truly care about a like my daughter. I think some of the inside "work" needs to be updated, some is pretty worn. Also, the playground area needs a major overhaul, especially the toddler area, there is hardly any shade and it sort of looks like a sad place w... See More

My two kids go here and both of them love it. The environment is good and teachers are friendly. My kids have learned a lot from here. They are very courteous and nice. They let you know about everything that is going on. They also make sure the environment is safe for the kids.

My 4 year old loves this school! We moved here from out of state, and she fit right in like she had been coming for years. The staff is amazing and so genuine. The Montessori atmosphere is one of a kind, I am excited to see what she learns in only being here a year!
We are new to this area and new to Montessori. We have only been here a month. My two year old’s vocabulary has increased since being here. We are very pleased to have him here at this school. My only complaint is how expensive it is. It’s not really a “complaint”. It’s more expensive than what we were expecting, but it is very worth it. Plus, they open at 6am, not 0630, which is perfect for us! Overall, I’m glad we chose this school.
Weinacker’s Montessori Lake Forrest cannot be beat! The staff definitely cares for the children and the education they provide is excellent! My daughter is currently in kindergarten and I believe Weinacker’s has laid a strong foundation for her academically and socially. My son is currently in the preschool program and has been there since he was 6 months old. From newborns to preschoolers they do a wonderful job with all the children!
My 4-1/2 year old loves attending Weinackers! The staff is wonderful and caring and my daughter is thriving in Montessori. I definitely recommend this school!
how much does this school cost?
We are at Weinackers (Learn Play Grow) off of Georgian Ave. and our 3-year-old loves it! She is doing very well, and half of the time she'd rather stay and play with her friends and teachers then come home😂. We love their approach to getting her ready for "big girl school" and highly recommend!
We felt comfortable at Weinackers the minute we walked in the door. Ms Ella, in the infant room, and all the staff are amazing...we could not have picked a better place to give our little boy his start!
Best place to send your baby! My daughter had learned so much in the short time she has been here! can't imagine sending her anywhere else!
My daughter just started attending the Lake Forest location a week ago. She has been in daycare since she was 6 weeks old and she is 4 years old. I can already tell a difference in her from this 1 week being at Weinackers. The Montessori atmosphere is amazing. I would highly recommend Weinackers’s to anyone! We would definitely send all of our kids here (when we have more 😬)
My daughter started preschool this fall at Weinackers Hillcrest, and we really enjoy it. My daughter is a little shy and reserved, and I believe the welcoming staff and montessori style learning have really helped her with the transition. I would definitely recommend checking out their program.
We absolutely love this school and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to enroll their children.
The staff are great and my son loves going there!
We moved here from out of state, not really knowing anyone. Weinackers (University) was the second daycare I interviewed to take care of our son and I truly made the right choice in choosing them. Our son has made great friends and learned so much. The teachers and director communicate frequently with my husband and I about how he did, any concerns, or coming events. It’s so nice to know our son is in good hands with people we can trust while we are at work.
My son is two and is in the toddler class at Hillcrest and we love it there. Any small issue we have had was addressed immediately. We have also loved all of his teachers. They focus on a new subject every week, and he has come home many times using new words and I could tell they had learned about the solar system or body parts that week. I also really appreciate that they won’t try and force potty training on kids before they’re ready at this school.
My daughter has been at Weinackers since she was 12 weeks old and she’s 4 now. We absolutely love this place. She’s made great friends and so have I. To watch how much she has learned is just amazing and when I compare her quality of education and care to other places, I know I made the right choice.
I love this school! (Hillcrest location) We just moved to the area and everyone has been so great to my son. I can’t express how thankful I am for my son to go to a place that I can trust and he feels more than welcomed there! Renae is amazing as well as all of the teachers and summer camp helpers! I am excited for the days to come for my son and his journey with weinackers! �
My daughter has attended WMS since she was 18 months old. She will start kindergarten next year and we will miss Montessori. She looks forward to going to school and loves her teachers.
At the time I paid the registration fees and signed my children up everywhere else was booked. Not knowing if the normal pricing is this extremely high. But I was desperate and I did not know any better since it was the first time my children had ever been outside of my home. But now that I have been in this town for a few months and I have researched almost every other today mother‘s morning out programs I am appalled at their prices. I paid $100 a day for a 18 month old and 3 year old from 8-1. The staff was very nice but I doubt their full time students are paying $1,500 a month for daycare. There prices are not inline with other like groups for this area. There needs to be something done about the bathrooms I walked in one day when my three-year-old boy was standing up peeing a foot away from a little girl sitting down to poop. There’s absolutely no barriers between stalls for the 2-4 year olds. When I took issue with this the assistant teacher told me that it was allowed and they are covered under law. Children are too curious at this age to be allowed in close bathrooms together. I feel like a simple wooden wall in between commodes would start to help with that issue. *I fully understand you get what you pay for with education but this is not a traditional Montessori program.
My daughter has done so well at Weinacker’s Montessori School. She started with some separation anxiety and now she loves her teachers and hugs them when she sees them. I am thrilled with the activities they prepare for the little ones and love how happy my daughter is.
Both of my children have been attending Weinakers since they were 6 weeks old. My oldest is now 7 & my youngest almost 5. My oldest is now Star Student of her class with all A's. My youngest will start kindergarten next year & we expect the same results. Weinaker's staff is so personalable & truly care about their children's well far, social skills & acidemic advancement. I highly recommend Weinakers!! I love them!!
