Jonathan Montessori School has a 6.5 acre campus nestled on the corner of Bavaria and Hundertmark Road in Chaska, Minnesota. We are proud to provide an authentic Montessori learning environment for children ages 16 months through Kindergarten, offering half-day care, full-day care and extended-day care. Celebrating 46 years, our private school and summer camps aim to meet the needs of children socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically while grounded on the methods and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
What is Montessori?
Montessori is an educational style of teaching or "guiding" a child. JMS prides itself on being AMI Montessori, the most authentic teaching style, and closest to the original style developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
Why Choose JMS?
Montessori is a philosophy of teaching used all over the world, but by no means are all Montessori schools the same, or even created equal. JMS has nearly 50 years of experience in Chaska, an elite Montessori school.
