Programs Overview

“The environment must be rich in motives, which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences”- Maria

icon of a deskChesterbrook Montessori School conducts half-day and full-day programs. Children attend school four (toddler program) or five (primary program) days a week to ensure consistency and continuity. Your child's regular attendance is expected, since this supports the success of his/her school experience.

In general, children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 30 may start the Full-Day Montessori Program in September. Children who turn 5 between Oct. 1 and Jan. 1 may be admitted to the Full-Day Montessori program in January, provided that a financial commitment is made to enroll the child for the following school year.
