A Balanced Curriculum

Since 2000, Montclare Children’s School proudly offers our students an enriched early childhood preschool program, instilling a life-long love of school and learning.


At Montclare, we embrace the development of the whole child. Our Preschool Program is enriched with activities including music, art, movement, free-play, gymnastics, yoga and library as well as with age-appropriate field trips and excursions. We believe that an engaging, supportive learning environment nurtures our students’ cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth.


Children learn through play which is an essential component of our program.  Our educators offer children the opportunity to explore and come to terms with the world around them through free and guided play. Montclare’s teachers and preschool curriculum foster confidence and kindness, while encouraging children to become independent, curious and assertive 21st Century problem-solvers, communicators and thinkers.
