Alcott was founded in 1968 and has an outstanding history of providing high-quality early educational experiences for young children in a Montessori environment. Our certified and experienced staff provide a responsive and engaging curriculum to meet each child’s interests and strengths, and to address any areas of weakness, in a nurturing classroom.

We strive to meet the developmental needs of every child and to provide support and education for our families. Our approach is based on the belief that: a child learns best in a social environment which supports and respects their unique development.

The Montessori Method

HomePageImageMontessori classrooms are prepared learning environments designed with great care to allow children to be independent and successful as they explore each activity. The activities and equipment are designed to stimulate a child’s natural curiosity and creative abilities.  

Ours is a holistic approach to learning and development that has given thousands of children across Westchester County a quality start. We understand and respond to issues such as “school readiness” and developmental appropriateness. Read more about the Montessori Method.
