Welcome to the preschools of New York City’s Twin Parks Montessori Schools of Manhattan located on the Upper West Side. Our Preschool Manhattan and Preschool Upper West Side locations are each guided by the Montessori philosophy. We at Park West, Riverside, and our new Central Park Montessori gently help children learn how to learn in a secure, prepared environment, laying a firm foundation for them to become confident, caring, and successful human beings.
At Twin Parks Montessori Schools, each located across the street from an Upper West Side park, we provide individualized learning activities that are appropriate for even the earliest stages of a child’s development. The goals of our infant program are to foster the development of trust and to assist in the natural growth of the young child’s personality.
The Twin Parks Montessori School’s toddler program in New York City aims to assist children as they fulfill the basic human tasks of trust, separation, independence, and self-control. The early childhood environment cultivates—and is a catalyst to—a child’s own natural desire to learn. Because there is an Educational Director at each NYC location, a number of specialists are available to collaborate on children’s learning styles while coordinated under the direction of Dr. Kathy Roemer, executive director of Twin Parks Montessori Schools of Manhattan.
