Chartwell House is more than a school. It is a family who share the same goals and aspirations for their children, and their education.

Established in 2015, Chartwell House is the result of the drive and passion of founder and principal Heather Kreusch. Realising her son wasn’t fitting into the traditional schooling system, and having successfully run a Montessori preschool for eight years, Heather made the decision to set up a South Africa Montessori Association accredited school.

Situated in Chartwell, in the north of Johannesburg, the school’s surrounds lends itself to an authetic Montessori experience. With loads of open space and close to nature, our students have the freedom to play and learn in a safe ‘countryside’ environment.

Our two pre-schools, Singing Forest Montessori Fourways and Singing Forest Montessori Chartwell, serve as incubators for our little seedlings from 18 months old up to six years of age. Both campuses offer Grade R classes.

Chartwell House, our Elementary school for children aged 6 – 12, offers small classes with an emphasis on discovering each child’s potential and allowing them to become the very best version of themselves.
