MSM Community

At the Montessori School of Manhattan we believe each child is our community's best chance for a promising future.
The Children
MSM is dedicated to cultivating each child's natural desire to learn and helping all children reach their full potential. Our safe and supportive environment allows each child the freedom to develop at his or her own pace. Children are encouraged to respect others as well as themselves, and in the process, develop a strong inner discipline and sense of self-worth.
Our highly experienced team of Montessori educators share the distinct privilege of shaping that future, by instilling our students with respect for self and others, grace and courtesy, and a passion for life-long learning.
The Staff
Our dedicated and professional staff is very important to us at the Montessori School of Manhattan, for they provide the loving environment for your child on a day-to-day basis. Our teachers are Montessori certified.  All members of the MSM faculty and administration are certified in CPR and first aid and trained to administer all forms of rescue medication, including an epi-pen. The school facilitates staff growth and development by providing in-house training as well as opportunities to participate in Montessori and early-childhood professional conferences and workshops.
At MSM it is our joy to welcome your family into ours.
The Parents
At MSM we provide children with the best possible environment in which to spend their days, and we strive to be partners with you in educating your child.
Parents are the first and primary teachers of their children, and when parents and the school work in partnership, benefits for the children are greatly enhanced. In order to assist parents in this partnership role, we offer parent workshops throughout the year. The main purpose is to help bridge the gap between home and school by providing information on the principles of classroom life according to the Montessori philosophy.

Classroom observations, parent-teacher conferences and weekly classroom newsletters further advise parents about their child's experience at school. Parents also enjoy attending regular social functions throughout the year.
