More than a century ago, Maria Montessori enlightened the world to the immense capabilities of the child. She showed us that children are driven by natural tendencies, which compel them to move through the world, exploring and discovering.
At Chesapeake Montessori School we offer prepared environments, guided by trained teachers, that provide children and adolescents innumerable opportunities for exploration and discovery. We guide children intellectually, academically, socially, and emotionally in their preparation for life.
We believe that education is an exciting process of discovery that builds a foundation for critical thinking, self-discipline, and a life-long love of learning. We understand that children learn best when they are motivated by their own innate need to explore and discover. We respect that children and adolescents should be encouraged to progress at their own pace, regardless of age or ability. We are committed to practicing authentic Montessori to guide children and adolescents to their full potential.
I hope that you will visit us soon to tour our beautiful campuses and observe our classrooms in action.
