“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” -Dr. Maria Montessori
Welcome to Morningside Montessori School!
One of the first Montessori preschools in New York City, Morningside was opened in 1966 by a group of parents. More than fifty years later, the school continues to be a gem of Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
We blend Montessori pedagogy with the most current child development research and best practices in an intimate setting, gently introducing children to a school experience. Our programs, led by dedicated teachers who delight in helping children grow, are carefully designed to meet each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive developmental needs. The school’s close-knit, committed families add immeasurably to the warmth of this wonderful community.
We invite you to visit, observe, and join.
