Our founding as the first Montessori school in New York City remains a vital part of our school community and culture. The Montessori philosophy views children as naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully-prepared learning environment, and has been celebrated throughout the world for over 100 years. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of the child. With a focus on individuality, creativity, and self-awareness, Montessori students go on to become some of the brightest and most innovative thinkers, creators, and doers.
These time-tested materials and methods have served as cornerstones to our own approach to education, with thoughtful modifications as we improve our program over time. More information about Montessori at Caedmon can be found here.
