The child should live in an environment of beauty.
— Dr. Maria Montessori

Morningside Montessori School lives on the top floor of the Ansche Chesed synagogue on West 100th Street and West End Ave.  We house three beautiful sunny classrooms, known as the North, South and West classrooms. Our cozy school makes it the ideal environment for toddlers and primary age children as a bridge from home to school.

Loved by all is our unique terrace playground. It is over 3,000 square feet of playscapes, running space, and a gazebo with wooden building blocks. During our extended day program, we utilize the gymnasium in the basement of the building for additional play and gross motor activities. 

Being on the Upper West Side means we have access to Riverside Park at all times. Children regularly visit the park for nature walks, play, and guided learning experiences.
