Chaffee County Montessori School follows an educational method based on the research and lifelong work of educator and physician, Maria Montessori.
While the content areas of a montessori education are much the same as those in traditional education programs, it is the methods that make montessori different.
Montessori can be found in public, private, charter and magnet schools all around the world.
Montessori ¡°works¡± for such a diverse population because it is a method founded on scientific observation of children.
The methods meet the needs of the child¡¯s developing brain, a constant within our biological species.
