Montessori Day School of Brooklyn is a warm and welcoming community where children are loved and supported through their most important and exciting developmental years. Since 1977, the school has followed a Montessori philosophy to guide and inspire a joy of learning both in and outside of the classroom. The school is an inclusive preschool program that values diversity, excellence in early childhood education, and continuous learning. Hours are 8am-3pm with extended day available.
The Montessori Day School of Brooklyn began in 1977 as a drop-in program for working families of the YWCA on Atlantic Avenue in downtown Brooklyn. In 2010, we moved from two locations (on Washington Avenue and out of Grace Church in Park Slope) to our current happy home at 237 Park Place. We serve families from many parts of Brooklyn.
In our classrooms you will see children working independently, engaging with Montessori materials, also working together in mixed-age groups. Multi-age groupings enable younger children to learn from older children which builds confidence. Older children reinforce their learning by modeling concepts they have already mastered while developing leadership skills. We provide the space for children to learn at their own pace.
Our enrichment program includes music, movement, gardening, and soccer (seasonally).
We have been a member of the American Montessori Society since 2017. Each classroom has one Montessori-trained teacher. All staff members attend the American Montessori Society conference annually. We are committed to the authentic implementation of this philosophy.
