Founded in 1974, Chemung Valley Montessori offers a fully-certified Montessori program at the preschool, kindergarten, elementary and middle school levels.
The non-profit, non-sectarian school operates five days a week, following a calendar similar to local school districts and offers curriculum-based before and after-school programs for enrolled students.
Embracing the Montessori philosophy, and, through a dynamic partnership of child, parent and teacher, we nurture individual potential, cultivate a passion for lifelong learning, and encourage responsible participation in the classroom, the community and the world.
In our classrooms you will find child-centered curriculum and individualized instruction; multi-age grouping; materials designed to fulfill physical and cognitive needs at each developmental level; Montessori-trained and certified faculty; hands-on learning; a connection to the environment, beginning in the classroom; opportunities for life skills; respectful, supportive community; and collaboration and cooperation.
