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

We opened our doors this September 2021, with a 18m-36m toddler classroom, a 3-6 year primary classroom, and a 6-12 year elementary classroom.


We will be opening a middle school classroom this September 2022, for ages 12-15 years. We will later split our elementary into two classrooms for 6-9 years and 9-12 years, and open an upper secondary classroom for ages 15-18 years, as and when needed, thereby servicing children from 18 months to 18 years.

If you are interested in learning more about the programs and enrollment, we encourage you to browse the website, sign up to our email updates for latest news, contact us at hello@bovinamontessori.com, and/or begin the admission process.

We are so fortunate to offer our students a magical school property on an old 1800s dairy farm in Bovina, with our own 50 acres and more than 400 acres of protected NYC land surrounding us and at our disposal.

We draw on Montessori's work for our pedagogical philosophy and method, in that we are providing our students with the opportunity to 'Prepare For Life' and not just for further formal education.

Our School aims to offer an authentic Montessori educational environment, with curriculum that emphasizes four core areas, reflective of our geographical region:

”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
