OUR SCHOOL

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.

BELLEVUE CAMPUS

Located on the border of Kirkland and Bellevue, below the South Kirkland Transit Center, our campus is a former orchard where historic Chestnut, Apple, and Pear trees, and a natural play yard provide students with many unique opportunities for indoor and outdoor learning.

 

The School is open year-round, with occasional closures according to the School schedule each year.

The hours of operation are 8:00 to 6:00.
