Mission Statement

Battery Park Montessori is a private school serving children in preschool and kindergarten. We are guided by the philosophy and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori and incorporate the best practices of current childhood development and language acquisition research.

Respect for the individual child’s development and potential is at the core of everything we do. We strive to provide child-led, meaningful, age-appropriate educational opportunities that instill in each child a lifelong love of learning, the confidence and curiosity to ask questions and make mistakes, and the passion to seek and know more.

We encourage independence, leadership, responsibility to others, global-awareness, and respect for our Earth, so that our children walk away with strong building blocks for their future education and the future they will inherit.
