Director’s Welcome

Letter from Sasha Wilson, Director

Welcome to the Montclare website!

Montclare has had the privilege of providing quality early childhood education on the upper west side since its founding in 2000. We are a diverse and devoted community of teachers, administrators, and families valuing each child’s unique experience while celebrating the joys of community building. Our balanced approach to curriculum allows us to give children a variety of experiences based on authentic relationship building, intentional practice, and of course fun; all while providing a safe and nurturing environment.  We are an enriched program with field trips, music, movement, yoga, art, library, and even filmmaking for our 4s!  

Our dedication to lifelong learning extends past the classroom to all the members of the community offering robust professional development and parent education. 

Tucked away in a beautiful landmark building, Montclare’s exceptional facilities include two gyms, a climbing wall, a rooftop play-space, art studio, and library.  We invite you to tour our space! 

If you would like to know more about Montclare, I welcome hearing from you. It will be my pleasure to share more about our wonderful school. 


Sasha Wilson, M.A. Ed
