The Alcott School is a Montessori preschool and a special education program in Westchester County, New York, founded in 1968 by Arlene Donegan. Our mission is to provide all children with the opportunity to develop independence, an awareness of their own abilities, and a feeling of self-worth.
These objectives are met by providing developmentally appropriate, multi-cultural learning environments. Alcott School recognizes the important role that parent education, and support for the family, play in the development of young children. Alcott School is dedicated to helping support the families enrolled in our programs.
Ours is a holistic approach to learning and development that has given thousands of children a quality start. Our approach is based on the belief that a child learns best in a social environment which supports and respects their unique development.
Our certified and experienced staff provides a responsive and engaging curriculum to meet each child’s interests and strengths, and to address any areas of weakness, in a nurturing classroom.
