Montclare Parent

As a parent of former, current, and future MONTCLARE students, we are truly in love. When we joined Montclare as a Threes Family, we found ourselves with a new partnership in raising our children. The teaching staff is deeply knowledgeable in child development and are experts in bringing out the best in each child while instilling a never-ending love of learning. The specialists add an extra element of joy to each day and the administration is always happy to assist families with their needs. My oldest is thriving in his ongoing school, thanks to the foundation he received at Montclare. We are also happy to have found friendships among the parent community as well as many opportunities to give back to the classroom and the community at large. Montclare has been incredible during the pandemic, going through great lengths to keep the school open in a safe manner, we are grateful to have had a sense of normalcy during this time, but we can’t wait to roam the beautiful halls again.

This is our third year at Montclare and we are so happy to have decided to send our daughter to Montclare. Not only has she learned a lot academically but she met so many friends and wonderful teachers. The community is warm and nurturing. The school has amazing facilities and does a fantastic job in preparing your child to be ready for kindergarten. The past year has really demonstrated the school’s great leadership - they have done a wonderful job navigating the pandemic and keeping our children safely in school.

Montclare was a wonderful, enriching and meaningful place for our four children. They grew and developed so much during their time at the school. I can't say enough about the incredible teachers, administrators and staff. They work so hard to provide for a nurturing and supportive environment that prioritizes the individual child's socialization and learning. All of my children were well-prepared for kindergarten and made friendships that sustain to this day. The parent community is also very involved and engaged. We miss this school every day.

We love Montclare and feel so lucky and blessed that both our children were able to start their educational journey at this school. The teachers and administrators are some of the very best in New York and have a collective experience of over 100 years - they are true experts in their field of education and child development. My children were equipped with the necessary tools and skills to make them successful at their ongoing schools after graduation. Even after graduation we still feel connected to the amazing community at Montclare and are forever grateful for the experiences my children had over the last five years. We love you Montclare!

Montclare is a wonderful preschool. Both of my sons have gone there and I can’t say enough about the teachers and staff. The art and music program are also amazing. I like how the curriculum balances teacher led learning with creative play and student led free choice times. It’s a perfect blend. The families that also attend are wonderful and so down to earth. Some of our really good friends are from MCS. In summary - a great school for kids!5 stars!!

It’s our daughters second year attending Montclare and we absolutely LOVE everything about this school! It's incredible watching our child grow and develop so fast because of all the amazing life skills and education she is receiving here. The sense of community is also fantastic and it’s been a huge source of information and support for us to help prepare our daughter for a very bright future.

Montclare Parent

My daughter flourished at Montclare. This is NOT a daycare. It’s a school, and its run really well. The teachers are smart, creative and caring. The building is beautiful with lots of light and high ceilings, which makes for an open environment with lots of space and great energy. There’s lots of outdoor time on their roof playground and the kids are exposed not just to important academic basics but also dance & yoga, music art and lots of support for learning both academic and social. And finally the administration is warm and very communicative. I feel as though I'm part of a community which has been key for both my daughter and myself. If you're looking for great preschool, I would highly recommend Montclare.

Nurturing, positivity and community. Those were the three things we were looking for when thinking about “our” perfect preschool for our daughter. From the moment we walked into the building, my husband and I knew our daughter was going to love learning, make lasting friendships and cultivate a flexible mindset. The teachers and staff work around the clock to make sure the students realize their potential. We appreciate the focus on art and music and was thrilled to see how our daughter is able to express herself so creatively and thoughtfully at such a young age. There are many preschool options in NYC, but very few take such a holistic approach like MCS in striving to tap into your child’s full potential and make them kind, confident and grounded individuals.
