"Where we started in 2016”

First off, Burr Ridge Bilingual Montessori was built by Aesha Nahas and her husband Ammar after they moved back to the US ending many years of work in education overseas. 


In 2016, BBM established its place in Burr Ridge as the first Bilingual - Arabic/English Montessori Preschool, with a focus on Islamic studies. After five successful years, BBM was looking to expand.

ABC Land Preschool was first established in 1969 on one-and-a-half acres of land at 1321 Plainfield Rd in Darien with a beautiful 6000 sq. ft. built-to-purpose building. In the summer of 2022, BBM moved into the ABC Land Preschool building to update and reinvent the location.

Providing an educational environment that encourages life long learners through a basis of autonomy and kindness.
