She is available for questions regarding the health and well-being of our students and helps us determine school policy relating to medical issues such as our guidelines for children with allergies.

ANITA ROTHBAUM is the latest addition to the administrative staff at the Montessori Center of Nyack. A resourceful, multi-tasker, Anita provides a calm, organized presence in the office, possibly because she is also a certified life coach. Anita has a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. We are pleased to have her with us!
