Croton Montessori School

Grades: PK - K | 6 students
The Croton Montessori School is a warm environment that is committed to your child's growth and development.
Most children begin their Montessori education at two and one-half or three, and remain in the program until they are ready for first grade.
The Croton Montessori School was established in 1968.
It reflects the basic philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori in today's world that no human is educated by another person.
He must do it himself or it will never be done.
A truly educated individual continues learning long after the hours and years he spends in the classroom because he is motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge.
Dr. Montessori felt, therefore, that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his own natural desire to learn."
