About Us

Preschool children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them.  Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the years from three to six are a critical period for nurturing a child's natural curiosity and laying the foundation for future development.  The Mohawk Valley Montessori is a growing child centered community, dedicated to providing a nurturing environment in keeping with the Montessori principles and philosophy that allows children to grow and discover. 

This primary program for preschoolers aged three to six is dedicated to:
  • Following the needs of the individual child in a prepared learning environment.
  • Encouraging independent self directed learning and discovery.
  • Establishing the value of peace, respect, and social harmony.
This Montessori reaches out to families who are seeking an authentic, high quality Montessori education for children between the ages of three to six.
