our school

Welcome to Chestnut Montessori School

Chestnut Montessori School is a small classical Montessori school where children love to learn.  The Montessori curriculum is enriched with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) activities for children of all ages.

Our mission is to provide a beautiful Montessori environment where children thrive.  We prepare students to meet the challenges they may face in the future, while experiencing joyful learning in the present.


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



Early Childhood (2 through 6 years)

Early Childhood classrooms are specially designed for young learners ages 2 ½ through 6. 

Mixed ages in each classroom, or family groups, enhance learning experiences of younger and returning students.



Elementary (ages 5 through 12 years)

Our beautiful elementary classroom also supports family groups through individual, small group, and classroom learning experiences and an enriched curriculum.
