Alcott is a preschool and special education program in Westchester County New York, founded in 1968 by Arlene Donegan, and has an outstanding history of providing high-quality early educational experiences for all young children in a Montessori environment. Our certified and experienced staff provide a responsive and engaging curriculum to meet each child’s interests and strengths, and to address any areas of weakness, in a nurturing classroom.
