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 a beautiful and peaceful campus. Our students learn about their world through real-life activities and a science-based curriculum.

 

Chestnut Montessori provides two beautiful natural learning environments for students. One campus is located in Bellevue, the other is in Kirkland.

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.

 

We have two Early Childhood classrooms: The Cedar and Pine Rooms, for children ages 2 through 6. Each classroom is beautifully prepared for18-20 children and staffed with Montessori credentialed teachers and interns.

 

The Garden Room is our Elementary classroom for children ages 5 through 12. Please schedule a visit to see how joyful learning is at Chestnut Montessori School.

 

The School is open year-round, with occasional closures according to the School schedule each year. For the 2019-2020, please see our Calendar

 

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

The New Kirkland Campus is located in the Forbes Creek area on over four acres of trees, ferns, and wetlands.

The Lilac classroom is located within a lovely family home with a beautiful view of the wetland and temperate forest biomes on campus, providing an ideal outdoors environment.
