Alfred Montessori School

The Alfred Montessori School is located at 8 1/2 South Main Street in Alfred, NY and is open M-F 7:30 AM til 5:30 PM.

We believe that the key to changing the world is through the hearts of children. At the Alfred Montessori School we are dedicated to giving families and children a high quality program that integrates Maria Montessori’s philosophy with elements of child development to create an enriching learning environment. We offer a flexible program that encourages children’s unique needs and natural abilities which promotes their desire to learn. The Alfred Montessori School has an absolute charter from the NYS Department of Education and is licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services as a day care facility.

[10/17/18]   Thank you to all the Montessori families and community members that donated items to our Yard Sale. It was a huge success!

[08/29/18]   Preschool Openings starting in September! We have several spots available in our preschool room where students engage in Montessori learning in language, math, the senses, practical skills, and much more. Please send an email to [email protected] if you would like more information.

[08/21/18]   Welcome to our new Director, Kathy Sherman! She recently moved to Alfred from Seattle and has over 25 years of teaching experience. Please stop by the office and introduce yourself to her!

[08/02/18]   Everything about a Montessori classroom fosters independence. You first start with the classroom that is prepared to allow the child to do for themselves what an adult would often do for a child. Enter a toddler room and you will watch a three year old sweeping the floor with a child-sized broom, washing the dishes at a sink just their height or folding washcloths that are the right size for their hands. The pride you see in these children who are able to “do it themselves” without asking for help from an adult is incredible. A Montessori classroom provides a prepared environment where children are able to develop independence.

Join the Alfred Montessori family. We have openings in the Infant, Waddler, and Preschool rooms!

This Saturday! Come one, come all!

Babies love to play at AMS! In our infant room, babies (6 weeks to 18 months) learn and play in their own space with plenty of room to explore. Our room always meets and usually exceeds the Office of Child and Family Services' child-to-teacher ratios, so your littlest ones are guaranteed loving attention, supervision, and teaching time.

[02/17/17]   Don't forget that the Alfred Montessori School will be closed on Monday, February 20, 2017 to observe Presidents' Day. However, contact the school if you are interested in quality childcare for school-age kids (aged 4-12) between the 21st-24th!

[07/31/14]   We are still in search of a double stroller for our infant room. If anyone has one they are willing to donate we'd be more than grateful to receive such a gift.
