Building Blocks Montessori School

  • Building Blocks Montessori School began in 1972 as a nursery school which soon expanded to the elementary level.
  • Building Blocks Montessori provides a stimulating environment that builds on the foundation set in Lower School but with more emphasis on academics.
  • Textbooks are used along with advanced Montessori and other materials.
  • The children continue to advance at their own rate, with individualized goals and curriculum tailored to meet different learning styles and needs.
  • It is a non-competitive and supportive environment. Small group meetings in all subjects are an integral part of Upper School for instruction and discussions.
  • The subject areas in Upper School are art, music, computer, gym & movement, yoga and Spanish.
  • Upper School children participate in N.Y.S. testing and take a yearly Stanford Achievement Test to aid in curriculum planning and evaluation.
