Philosophy

Working within the framework of the Montessori Philosophy, we value a thoughtful and well-prepared learning environment that is both purposeful and peaceful. Children realize their potential as they explore creatively, think intelligently, act responsibly, and communicate effectively. Park Slope Montessori is dedicated to facilitating this human development. Our commitment is to instill social responsibility, personal independence, and the knowledge that education is a lifelong process based on a solid academic foundation.
