Admissions

WELCOME TO CHESTERFIELD MONTESSORI SCHOOL. CHOOSING THE BEST SCHOOL FOR YOUR CHILD IS A VERY IMPORTANT PROCESS. I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU FOR VISITING OUR WEB SITE, AND FOR TAKING THE TIME TO LEARN ABOUT OUR SCHOOL.

CMS is a private, coeducational school offering an authentic Montessori education at all levels – Toddler, Primary, Elementary, and Adolescent. Our students regularly go on to the most prestigious secondary schools in the area. Our goal here at CMS is for every child to leave with a life-long love for learning, the skill and ability to collaborate with others, and the confidence, courage and compassion to excel in life. Beyond their academic prowess, the kindness and respect that the children display for each other and for the adults in their environment is truly inspiring.

Montessori is timeless as it addresses children’s basic needs, and allows them to naturally develop and make the most of their innate capabilities. Schedule an appointment to visit our school, and see for yourself the quality of quiet, intense concentration that is the norm in our classrooms. We are proud to be part of an education that contributes at such a deep level to children.

  • 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!
