“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 opened in 1966 by a group of parents. For more than fifty years, Morningside has been the hidden gem of the Upper West Side, an environment 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 children and their families will always continue to be part of the Morningside community. The teaching staff and administration are dedicated professionals who truly love children and delight in seeing them grow and come back to visit.
This wonderful community invites you to visit, observe and join.
