The mission of Chickadee Montessori is to provide a nurturing and holistic Montessori experience for young children, one that will inspire a lifetime love of learning, cultivate a sense of connection with all life, and empower each child to be independent, curious, creative, and peaceful.
Chickadee is a true “house for children,” located in an older single family home in the Cedar Mill area of outer NW Portland. We have a deep and wonderful lot with open grass and garden areas in front, and a bit of native forest in the back, with cedar, Douglas fir, and bigleaf maples. The children run and play freely and safely through all the seasons, and make this place their own.
Every parent has some core questions you need to ask right away – the FAQ’s. This section answers some of those basics regarding enrollment options and daily schedules. More details can be found as you explore the website further, and then for a deeper view, you can follow the links to the Chickadee blog.
