About Us

Montclare Children’s School


Established in 2000
Nestled in a beautiful landmark building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Montclare Children’s School’s community reflects our international and culturally diverse Upper West Side neighborhood. Located on 96th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, Montclare provides a dedicated and nurturing team of early childhood educators in each classroom. Our enriched, balanced curriculum and primarily teacher-guided approach embrace the whole child promoting the highest levels of cognitive, social, emotional and physical and ethical development, in a secure, stimulating, playful learning environment. At Montclare we believe that a supportive preschool setting encourages independence, optimal learning and Kindergarten readiness.
