Our Mission

Morningside Montessori School blends the philosophy and method of Dr. Maria Montessori with today’s best practices in child development. Together, we nurture children into compassionate, independent, lifelong learners.


Our Philosophy

Our philosophy and approach to early childhood education is based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), whose holistic vision of education focuses on the cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of the child. The main educational elements of this approach include a tremendous respect for oneself and others, individualized learning experiences, a focus on peace education, multi-age classes within which children support and learn from one another, and ongoing opportunity for exploration and discovery.

Our programs are designed to support children in their most important work – to become independent, compassionate, lifelong learners.
