Welcome

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for your interest in our future Montessori school in the heart of Delaware County, New York.

We plan to open three classrooms this coming September 2021; a 18m-36m toddler classroom, a 3-6 year primary"children's house" classroom, and a 6-12 year elementary classroom. If you are interested in learning more about the programs and enrollment, we encourage you to sign up to our email updates for latest news.

It is our hope to open two additional classrooms in the fall 2022, for ages 9-12 years (upper elementary) and 12-15 years (intermediate), splitting the existing 6-12 class up into two. We will later open an upper secondary classroom for ages 15-18 years, as and when needed.

We have found a magical school property site on an old dairy farm in Bovina, and are working on preparing it for school start!

Our School aims to offer an authentic Montessori educational environment, with emphasis in the curriculum on four core areas:

”To consider the school as a place where instruction is given is one point of view. But, to consider the school as a preparation for life is another. In the latter case, the school must satisfy all the needs of life.” - Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence
