Chesterfield Montessori School was founded in 1981 as a private school serving children ages three to six years. Today CMS is a well-established, non-profit school recognized by AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) offering authentic Montessori programs at all levels from toddlers (16 months) through 14 years.
Our beautiful sunlit facility is situated on five acres in the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield, Missouri. Our campus includes a large swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds and a children’s garden. The Adolescent students have a satellite campus as well as a 7-acre Land Lab that supports field work and scientific studies.
The classrooms are open, inviting, well organized, and equipped with the full spectrum of materials scientifically developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. Our students come from many countries and diverse backgrounds and share the richness of their cultures with our school community. Our teachers have all completed a rigorous academic year of AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) training beyond their undergraduate degrees. The partnership of parents, children and teachers creates a place where children and families grow and flourish. Our mixed-age classrooms are calm, peaceful and conducive to learning.
