A Little About Our Programs

Early Childhood Program (Pre-K or Preschool): Ages 2 through 6 years at the Bellevue and Kirkland Campus

At Chestnut Montessori, our early childhood curriculum is designed and implemented to support the needs and abilities of the whole child in his/her physical, social, and intellectual development. The curriculum is introduced individually as a child demonstrates readiness. We incorporate a STEAM curriculum that aligns beautifully with the classical Montessori approach.

Our specially prepared environment fosters independence, competence, and confidence as students become self-directed learners.

Children learn best when the promise of Sensitive Periods are fulfilled. Sensitive Periods are transitory times of effortless learning when students can absorb specific nomenclature and information. Guided by our highly educated Montessori teachers, each child’s innate abilities, intelligence, and creativity unfolds.

Opportunities for practice in writing, reading, math, fine arts, cultural studies, and the sciences abound.

Our goal/promise is to provide many memorable experiences for our students. Our outdoor environment enriches our students’ school experiences. A natural play yard, fruit and vegetable gardens, pumpkin patch and apple trees provide many opportunities for students to explore and participate in nature studies.
Please schedule a tour if you would like to explore the possibility for your child to experience the life-long gift of an education at Chestnut Montessori School.

Elementary Program (kindergarten through 6th grade) : Ages 6 through 12 years at the Bellevue Campus

At Chestnut Montessori School our goal is to enhance the child’s understanding of the natural world through a classical approach to Montessori elementary education, integrated with a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math curriculum. The 6 through the 12-year-old child is extremely intelligent and is now ready for a rich and wide curriculum. Our hands-on materials encourage students to experiment, discover, and explore abstract concepts. Memorization follows naturally.
