  • Thank you for your interest in our school!

    Chesterfield Montessori School reopened our physical campus this past June and we are thrilled to have children back at school. We have been hard at work implementing our new safety guidelines and procedures during this unprecedented time. We are seeing first-hand how beneficial it is for our students to be in an environment that is designed to meet their unique developmental needs, along with their classmates, highly trained teachers and other loving adults.

    Since we are an intimate community, we have flexibility to meet the children’s needs in a way that just isn’t available to large schools and systems. Our five acre main campus offers large, sunny classrooms with excellent ventilation, extra indoor space and plenty of outdoor space. Additionally, we have a seven acre Land Lab in Wildwood that is available to our older students. We are committed to offering individualized education for every child, designed to support your child’s unique individual needs by implementing the authentic Association Montessori Internationale method at every level.

    While data is showing that we can educate our youngest children safely at school, we have created a strong Distance Learning option and hybrid schedule for older children as necessary, and will offer child care for essential workers, including extended care hours. (Parents and their employers determine who is an essential worker.) Our health and safety protocols have been designed in collaboration with infectious disease experts in our area, as well as the local Department of Public Health.

    Please call us at (314) 469-7150 or email admissions@chesterfieldmontessori.org to find out more. We look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your family!
