- Twin Parks has three facilities on the Upper West Side: Central Park Montessori, Park West Montessori and Riverside Montessori. Our schools serve children ages 3 months to 6 years and have been accredited for excellence by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Middle States Commission on Elementary Education (MSCE), are affiliate schools of Columbia University, and are members of the Independent School Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY), the New York Association of Independent Schools (NYAIS), and The Parents League.
- All programs invite children to develop a love of learning for a lifetime. All our children are nurtured, valued, and respected. Children are free to learn independently at their own pace, within the Montessori structure; and learning is allowed to occur naturally. Parents feel comfortable knowing that their children are cared for in an encouraging learning atmosphere-one that is supportive of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth.
