Greene Towne School

Tel: (215)563-6368
  • Greene Towne School is the oldest Montessori preschool and Kindergarten in Center City, Philadelphia.
  • Since 1966, Greene Towne has provided a superlative education for children aged 3 to 6.
  • In the fall of 2002 we added a Toddler Program, and now accept children beginning at age 18 months.
  • The school offers afternoon care and a summer program for both 3 to 6 year old children and toddlers.
  • Every aspect of Greene Towne stimulates creativity and learning. Educational materials are designed specifically for a young child's mind and body, and the facility is colorful, bright and inviting.
  • Boys and girls feel inspired, whether they are writing a short story with the moveable alphabet, taking pictures for a photography exhibit, or watering plants in our roof deck container garden.
  • Greene Towne School is accredited by the American Montessori Society and the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools.
