About Twin Parks
Building a Foundation
“learning how to learn.”
Nancy McCormick Rambush
Founder of the American Montessori Society
Twin Parks Montessori Schools has three facilities: Central Park Montessori, Park West Montessori, and Riverside Montessori. Our schools have been accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Middle States Commission on Elementary Schools (MSCES) and are members of the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS), the Independent School Admission Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY), and the Parents League, as well as affiliate schools of Columbia University. Our programs invite children to develop a love of learning for a lifetime. All of our children are nurtured, valued, and respected. Children are free to learn independently at their own pace; and learning is allowed to occur naturally. Parents can feel comfortable knowing that their children are cared for in an encouraging learning atmosphere—one that is supportive of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth.
The same meaningful love of learning happens at all of our Twin Parks Montessori Schools, so a family’s choice of one school over the other is generally driven by the convenience of geographical location.
Twin Parks Montessori Schools Mission Statement
Guided by the Montessori philosophy, we 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.
