Twin Parks Montessori Schools

Twin Parks Montessori Schools has three campuses all on the Upper West Side: Central Park Montessori, Park West Montessori, and Riverside Montessori. There are programs offered for infants, toddlers, and early childhood age (from 3 months to 6 years old). Twin Parks is an accredited Montessori school with outstanding early childhood programs. Financial aid is available, and there are Pre-K For All programs at both Park West and Riverside campuses. At Twin Parks, each child is nurtured, valued, and respected. The schools partner with parents and families to ensure that children receive the very best education and care in a stimulating and creative atmosphere. Children are encouraged to learn independently at their own pace, and learning is fostered naturally within a carefully prepared environment. The teachers and staff help the development of the children physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. Twin Parks classrooms share a deep commitment to Montessori and best practices of infant, toddler, and early childhood programs. The program varies at each level, but the goals are consistent throughout the program:

  • To partner with families in the education of their children
  • To foster a love of learning
  • To encourage and build self-reliance, independence, and responsibility
  • To help children develop a positive self-image as key to the development of their full potential
  • To teach grace, courtesy, compassion, and respect for others
  • To embrace and celebrate diversity and a multicultural community
  • To spark imagination, wonder, humor, and joy in children
  • To maintain a safe and nurturing place to learn and grow
  • To provide a stimulating learning program to help each child reach their full potential.
