Frequently Asked Questions

What ages do you enroll?

We welcome children ages 2-6. They may start during the month of their 2nd birthday.

Is this school accredited?

Yes, Battery Park Montessori is a member of the American Montessori Society (AMS).

Do you require toilet training?

Children ages 4 and 5 must be toilet trained.

Does my child need to know Mandarin or Spanish?

Children attending Battery Park Montessori do not need to have a background in either language. As children learn through the immersion program, beginners will build their knowledge and those who already have a foundation, or speak the language at home, will further refine their skills. Dual language immersion programs result in fluency by 5th grade.
