“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 schools 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. Morningside offers an environment that has been carefully designed to enhance a child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive developmental needs.
We blend Montessori philosophy and pedagogy with the most current child development research and accepted best practices. The school’s teaching staff and administration are dedicated professionals who truly love children and delight in seeing them grow and come back to visit after they graduate.
This wonderful community invites you to visit, observe, and join.
