Classrooms at the Montessori Center of Nyack offer a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural drive to learn and work. The holistic curriculum, implemented under the guidance of Montessori trained teachers, allows each child to discover the joy of learning and develop social and intellectual discipline that is the foundation for a happy and productive future. Students are encouraged to acquire respectful and caring attitudes.

Dr. Montessori observed that in a classroom of children of mixed ages, the younger children benefited by emulating the older children, and the older children grew in strength and competency by helping the younger children. To this end, our classes contain students ranging in age from 2 years 9 months through 5 years.

The descriptions on this website indicate the kinds of activities to which all children are exposed and from which they absorb lasting impressions.  Mastery is achieved according to your child’s personal timetable of growth and ability.  The activities are organized into categories here for convenience, but in the classroom they are interrelated.
