Happy Birthday, Maria Montessori.

An activist, feminist, humanitarian, doctor, and education revolutionary. The impact of her work is felt around the globe through the thousands of students who sit in the classrooms of schools bearing her name.

To honor her legacy, AMS has collected stories, quotes, and thank you notes from members of our community and staff. We invite you to read more on our Montessori Life blog. https://bit.ly/3Q3xgn7

We celebrated our 17th annual International Day earlier in June! Multicultural education has been an integral part of Dr. Maria Montessori's educational philosophy since its inception in the early 1900's. We dedicate ourselves to Dr. Montessori's mission, by ensuring our curriculum respects the individuality of each child, creates a community of cooperation and nurtures a sense of wonder and curiosity about our differences. A month long study of the culture of Ukraine, Cuba, Ireland, England and United States culminated with a performance at our school! Queen of England, J.K. Rowling, The Beatles, Band Queen, Adele, and David Beckham were some of our special guests for the event!

Today our summer campers completed their Kitchen Chemistry week by visiting our caterer's commercial kitchen at Fairfax Food Service. We got to see how FFS prepares thousands of lunches a day for schools like ours. We were amazed at how many dishes they use and wash every day, how many refrigerators and freezers they have and the large size of their equipment. We got to see the inside of the vans they use to transport meals in hot and cold compartments. Lastly, we donned hair-nets and gloves and prepared our own tasty snack to eat on the bus on the way home. A great way to end a week of making and eating lots of tasty treats!

In honor of Veterans Day, we were thrilled to welcome one of our student's grandfathers to speak to the class about his 33 years of service with the US Navy via Zoom. The students admired his uniform and the exciting photos he shared of airplanes, submarines and aircraft carriers. They all learned a lot about the sacrifices that service members make to defend our nation. Captain Symonds, thank you for your sacrifice, your bravery, and the example you set for us all. We thank all of our veterans for their service!

Learning Empathy . . .

Our Story

Montessori of Chantilly, a Full Member School of the American Montessori Society, was founded by Ms. Deepa Simlot in 2005, serving families in the Chantilly/Centreville/South Riding community. In August of 2018, the school kicked off an exciting new chapter in their history with their relocation to a beautiful, newly constructed free-standing building right next to Stone Springs Hospital in Loudoun County. This move enabled the school to extend it’s reach to nearby Stone Ridge, Aldie, Willowsford and Brambleton neighborhoods.

The new school building features 10, 743 square feet of classrooms and both natural and traditional outdoor playground areas and on the 2.5 acre wooded lot. Classrooms feature child-size features such as cabinets, sinks, toilets, along with over sized windows for natural light and garden boxes for each classroom. Since 2005, over 650 students have been nurtured and educated inside our doors, building a strong sense of community among our current and past school families.

Montessori of Chantilly is an authentic Montessori preschool for children ages 20 months - 6 years old, featuring Montessori certified teachers in every mixed-age classroom. The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.

Dr. Montessori’s view of the child is one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive.

Montessori of Chantilly offers students opportunities to develop their potential as they step out into the world as engaged, competent, responsible, and respectful citizens with an understanding and appreciation that learning is for life. Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, our students become confident, enthusiastic, self-directed learners. They are able to think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly—a skill set for the 21st century.
