Focus On Central Park Montessori

by NYC Firm Schools on March 1, 2012

Rounding out the three Twin Parks troika of preschools is Central Park Montessori. Following our two previous focuses, Park West Montessori and Riverside Montessori, Central Park Montessori is a third option for parents and preschoolers in Manhattan.

Not much is different about Central Park Montessori except that the school has announced on its website that applications for children under 2 years old are no longer being accepted for the 2012-2013 school year. That is likely because the school has reached its capacity for that age level. But like the other two schools in this family, Central Park Montessori follows the Montessori tradition very well and offers programs for infants, toddlers, and early childhood. The school is located at 1 West 91st Street in Manhattan.

The infant class gives students their first taste of independence. It is designed to build trust between the student and the teacher and to focus on the natural development of the child’s personality.

Toddlers work at their own pace to develop self-esteem, a sense of independence, and self-control. They understand that they are in a safe environment where risk-taking is encouraged but supervised. Toddlers in Central Park’s program usually learn to say their first words and receive toilet training under a guided hand.

Early childhood is a stage of growth where development can happen real fast. Children are prepared for kindergarten and study their natural language, alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes in a safe environment. Children learn by doing in a natural way at their own pace.

Central Park Montessori school is a great experience for young children who need to develop independence and self-esteem.
