"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn." - Maria Montessori

Our school


Crestview Montessori School in Bethesda, Maryland is located on the border of Upper NW DC and MD on Western Avenue between River Road and Massachusetts Avenue. We offer an authentic Montessori education for preschool and kindergarten children within a mixed age classroom. The curriculum focuses on helping to nurture the development of the whole child, while our small school size allows for individualized and caring attention.  As Dr. Montessori once said, "The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct ones own experiences."  We believe Crestview offers that rich environment, and invite you to come and see our unique classroom in actio


Our Focus on Child-Centered Learning

We believe our beautifully-appointed Montessori primary preschool gives young children a wonderful first school experience. At Crestview, we strive to give your children the best academic and social education possible, giving you peace of mind that your children will develop into the best version of themselves while using authentic Montessori materials. 


The Multi-Aged Classroom

In the Montessori classroom, students have the opportunity to take on a number of roles throughout their years with us. As a student grows from being the youngest to the middle and then to the oldest, they represent a distinctive and multifaceted part of the classroom dynamic. Children learn from one another while they work, play, eat, rest, and interact with each other.


Our Commitment to the Environment

In both our indoor and outdoor classroom environments, we are attentive to sustainability practices such as recycling, reusing, reducing, and composting. We care about the earth's sustainability, and we are dedicated to giving our children skills to care for our planet.
