Morningside Montessori School:

Morningside Montessori began as a parent cooperative, convening in the apartments of Upper West Side moms in the 1960's. What we retain of that spirit today is the familiar feel of a small neighborhood school where everyone knows your child and your family. 


A small child transitioning to school for the first time is a radical experience, one that we've designed to be peaceful, engaging, and joyful. Our small space wraps each child in the physical and social safety so similar to the home. The ease of transition facilitates the independence necessary for children to develop strong inquiry skills in reading, math, science, and writing.
