The mission of the Happy Montessori School is to provide the essentials of quality education for young children:…More support, predictability, warmth, and acceptance in the context of intellectually-stimulating, enriching activities. The school is influenced by the Montessori philosophy, which recommends a structured environment for children to develop to their full potential.
This New York-state accredited school offers children aged 2.7 through 6 years a secure and stimulating environment to learn and grow. Loving, certified teachers nurture children to act, think, and rely upon themselves. The school has four sunny, cheerful classrooms and a spacious outdoor playground. The curriculum is a combination of Montessori philosophy and support of the New York State Standards for learning. It also has an accredited kindergarten program for families who wish to remain in a small group setting for an additional year before elementary school.
The Happy Montessori School was founded in 1970 by Mrs. Amrit Sethi to provide quality education for young children. The school has developed a reputation for preparing children to succeed socially, emotionally, and academically.
Today, the Happy Montessori School is the oldest pre-school in Port Washington and the only non-sectarian Montessori school in the greater area.
Door-to-door transportation is available for children Port Washington and parts of Manhasset.
