The West Classroom

Morningside Montessori School occupies the top floor of the Ansche Chesed synagogue on West 100th Street and West End Ave.  We share the building not only with the wonderful Ansche Chesed congregation community, but also with other early childhood programs, including our partner Discovery, whose amazing padded gymnasium we utilize during our After School program for movement classes.


On the sixth floor, we occupy three beautiful, sunny classroom spaces, known as the North, South, and West classrooms. Within these rooms, we have scheduled a variety of rich programming. Our toddler programsAfter School, and Small World Spanish classes are held in the North classroom; our 5-Day morning and Explorers Kindergarten Prep in the South classroom; and our 5-Day morningafternoon, and Small World Mandarin classes in the West classroom.

Loved by current students and alum is our fantastic rooftop playground. It is over 2,000 square feet of playscapes, running space, and a gazebo with wooden building blocks. During cold months, we utilize a large multi-use room on the fifth floor of the Ansche Chesed synagogue for playtime.
