Chestnut Montessori School
Not a traditional school environment.
Chestnut Montessori School is rooted in the belief that children are uniquely capable to absorb abstract concepts presented in a way that sparks the child’s spirit and imagination. We provide a rich, natural learning environment in two beautiful and peaceful campuses. Our students learn about their world through real-life activities and a science-based curriculum.

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.

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.
Hear it from our parents!
My daughter started going to Chestnut Montessori last year. Both her and us are very happy with the school. They provide an environment where kids can grow, be curious and enjoy!
My 4 yo loves the school. He has really thrived and taken to the Montessori method. I feel he is well challenged and learning valuable life and coping skills. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a Montessori.
