Mission

To provide high quality Montessori based programs in the heart of Park Slope

Park Slope Montessori serves children between the ages of 18 months and 12 years and is guided by the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. We encourage the development of the whole child by providing a comprehensive Montessori education, cultivating independent thought, as well as awareness of their environment, empathy for others, social ease, and confidence.

We aim to establish within a child the intellectual, emotional, and physical rigor needed to become a self-directed learner, flexible thinker, creative problem solver, and to support their ever-increasing curiosity about the world in which they live.


History

Park Slope Montessori is a brainchild of a Montessori parent who noticed a clear need for high quality part-time Montessori programs. Our Park Slope location opened its doors in 2013 as Brainy Academy. As our Montessori program grew, we realized the need for a name that reflects our continuing evolution. In an effort to highlight the roots of our educational principles to those who might not yet be familiar with us, we now call the school Park Slope Montessori.
