We fell in love with Chesterton Montessori when we first visited over 5 years ago so we sent both of our girls through the toddler and preschool programs. We chose Chesterton Montessori because of the amazing staff and teaching philosophies. Our girls learned to be independent beginning in toddlers and continued to build their independence throughout preschool and I attribute this to the life skills that they learned at Chesterton Montessori...I mean, I have my 4-year-old doing the dinner dishes! In addition to learning life skills, the Montessori curriculum has given my children a step ahead of the curve as they transitioned into a traditional school. I would highly recommend Chesterton Montessori for any parent looking for a well-rounded education for their children.

It is so hard to believe, that once again, another school year has come to an end. It is even more unbelievable that this is our last year with Chesterton Montessori School. As you know, our son Byron will be attending Liberty Elementary in the Fall. We wanted to express to you how much we have loved our time at the Montessori School. Byron started at the school, after completing the toddler program at Valparaiso, in 2006. We fell in love with the school immediately. The facility is absolutely beautiful and the staff are all wonderful. We have watched our son grow and become the little boy he is today because all of you. The school was truly Byron's home away from home. We are gong to really miss all of you! Thank you for all of your hard work, love and care. Thank you fore three wonderful years!

Thank you so much for making it possible for Sophie to attend your school. I really can't put into words the felling of gratitude and happiness I felt knowing she was there everyday. You and your staff have given her such a good foundation, and not just academically. But more importantly you taught her tolerance, patience, appreciation, caring, and compassion. I knew every day when I dropped her off that she would be loved at your school and I so very much appreciated it. I have lived a blessed life and I am sure that when I am an old man, reminiscing, I will look back on these three years with Sophie and your school as the happiest and best years of our lives...it is hard to imagine better. Thank you so very much!

My daughter has progressed in her learning so much by the Montessori method. I can tell she is calmer, and more focused on figuring things out. Also the aftercare staff and room is the best around. I feel safe and happy leaving my daughter there while I go back to school. They do different things with the kids each day and keep her engaged.

From the first encounter we knew this was the place for our son. The entire staff is wonderful. The environment is nurturing, caring, beautiful and offers a fantastic educational experience.

It is a pleasure to see how excited our son is about going to school! We are very happy with his advancements in academics and social skills. The combination of the Montessori teaching philosophy, outstanding teachers, supportive staff and parents makes Chesterton Montessori an ideal place to nurture young minds.

Parent Testimonials

 
We were in the midst of a lot of family transitions (a move to a new city, a new baby, new jobs)  and we sought a preschool that would provide stability and promote a sense of confidence in our child. Chesterton Montessori exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff were friendly and responded in a timely way to all of our questions. The administrators and instructors were kind and encouraging. My son looks forward to going to school and I know CMS was an instrumental part of his positive growth during a time of many changes.

This message comes long overdue. My son attended preschool and Kindergarten at your school. He is now finishing up his 8th grade year. I am not sure where the time went, but he will be attending high school in the fall. I often make reference to Christopher's early years because I believe that is what made him who he is today. I will honestly say that I think one of our best decisions we made as parents was to send Chris to your school. I know that we had to make some financial sacrifices, but it was worth every penny. Christopher has had much success in his school. He is now in honors classes and maintains an A average. He is very active in extracurricular activities as well. He volunteers in activities such as Special Olympics. I feel that he was provided with experiences that developed his critical thinking skills. He learned early on how to make good choices. I just want to say thank you to you and your staff. You are all greatly appreciated!
