At the Montessori Center of Nyack, learning is a natural and joyful experience for every child. Education is not regarded as the passive acceptance of other people’s ideas and pre-existing knowledge, but the active pursuit of many different experiences–social, physical, emotional, as well as cognitive.
Placed in a supportive environment where individual rates of growth and development are respected and nurtured, children develop a healthy, natural curiosity and a lifelong love of learning.
The teachers, like our students, come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, but all have been carefully chosen and trained through the Association Montessori Internationale, the American Montessori Society or other recognized Montessori teacher training programs.
Special teachers are experts in their fields.
