Every child. Every family. Every day.
In 1966, one entrepreneurial parent with a passion for Montessori education tacked a poster onto a lamp post on the Upper West Side, soliciting other parents to help her create a small, familial Montessori preschool. Soon, a dozen families had joined her, and Morningside Montessori School was born.
Today, over 50 years later, our school continues to embrace the values that gave it life: compassion, commitment, and the desire to foster a lifelong love of learning.
Morningside Montessori balances a high-quality, carefully-designed curriculum with a down-to-earth school culture, so that every child, parent, teacher, and school team member can become the best version of him or herself.
I look forward to welcoming you for a visit and tour to share all that we have to offer.
