About

Chesterbrook Montessori School serves Arlington Virginia and surrounding communities. Our director, Judy Balcazar Mercill opened the school in September 1971 with twenty-six students in Memorial Baptist Church on North Glebe Road. In 2008, it became apparent that space was limited and Chesterbrook added a second campus at Arlington Forest United Methodist Church, on Arlington Boulevard. We opened an additional Primary classroom and a Toddler classroom at this campus. Chesterbrook presently provides authentic Montessori education for ninety students, ages eighteen months through six years.
