The “whole-child approach” to teaching and learning is the cornerstone of Montessori education. Liberty Montessori Schools, which have been serving Westchester for 36 years, offer children ages 17 months to six years a high-quality Montessori education in which children learn and thrive. Liberty Schools have been cited several times for excellence by the government and national television programs. The goal of Liberty Montessori Schools is to help young children reach their full potential in all areas of life: social skills, emotional growth, physical coordination, and cognitive preparation. Students receive Japanese, Spanish, and French language lessons combined with international cultural programs to promote a diverse understanding of the world. Lessons are reinforced with songs, music, stories, movement and interactions with others from different countries. Subjects such as poetry, math, reading, English, geography, zoology, chemistry, health, and physical education as well as technology and sciences are taught using a hands-on approach and state-of-the-art materials.
