"Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core." 

- Maria Montessori 

At Montessori of New Paltz our mission is to provide a stimulating, caring and healthy environment that guides children to reach their fullest potential – becoming responsible, independent and creative individuals who are aware and proud of whom they are.  

We follow the Montessori philosophy in order to provide an environment that fosters the child’s natural love of learning. Our mission echoes the words of Dr. Maria Montessori – "Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core". Our local community’s wonderful natural resources will play a prominent role in enriching this environment, fueling the child's natural desire for exploration and building respect for his/her world.

Montessori of New Paltz offers a well-rounded curriculum that nurtures and sustains the developmental needs of the whole child. Each child’s unique personality is encouraged, each is respected as an important member of the community. This includes equal attention to social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs. Each child has an opportunity to work at his or her own pace and is allowed to experience the excitement of learning by choice. 

As a community of children, involved parents and committed professional staff, we pledge to be a diverse community that strives to live in peace with each other and the earth.
