EXCELLENT Preschool! MMS has dedicated, loving teachers and an accomplished, helpful administrative team. Lots of involved, friendly parents. As a former teacher, I remain deeply impressed with the extensive, engaging Montessori curriculum that have helped my children learn to read, write, count, add, and subtract. But more importantly, my children have learned how to make friends, how to express their feelings, how to respect and understand other children’s feelings, and how to work on a team. MMS was extremely helpful during the private school application process. My son is now happily in Kindergarten at a competitive NYC private school. My friends have also said that the Executive Director was great at helping them navigate the public school Kindergarten process as well. Morningside Montessori School is a wonderful, caring preschool that will help your children grow and develop a life long love of learning.

Central to our mission is the involvement of each child's stakeholders. Families and teachers work together to create experiences and environments at school and at home that ignite the potential in each child. To support our families and their children, we offer a Parent Education Program, which is a series of workshops held throughout the school year. These workshops are a forum for learning, exchanging ideas, and an opportunity to further build relationships with the other Morningside families. 

Here's what some of our parents, past and present, have had to say about their experiences at Morningside. 

I could not have have imagined my children going to any other school. My husband and I will be forever grateful to our Morningside family for installing a love of learning to our children. Our daughter is finishing her senior year in college and she still refers to Morningside as her second home.

As a Morningside teacher for the past seventeen years, I am most fond of the connections that have been made with countless families. When I see parents form fourteen years ago, it feels like I am seeing a long lost relative. We hug and reminisce for hours. It affirms my belief that Morningside is a truly special experience for children and their parents, too.
