Our Montessori School

  • Our Montessori School at Yorktown and Carmel has been offering quality care and education since 1972.
  • We provide programs for infants, toddlers, nursery and kindergarden-age children as well as an elementary school that goes through the sixth grade.
  • Our child-to-teacher ratio is excellent and averages six to one.
  • Classes use the Montessori learning materials, which are designed to teach concepts in a concrete way, then help the child make the leap from the concrete to the abstract.
  • Our primary aim is to preserve the child's natural curiosity and nourish and encourage the love of learning that is present in each child.
  • Children learn respect for each other and the environment and develop confidence and a "can-do" attitude through many small successes.
  • In addition to 'the basics" we feature a variety of special subjects, including instrumental and choral music, dance, art, computers, drama, French, physical education and chess.
  • Always, we emphasize a hands-on, learning by doing approach as we strive toward excellence.
