The mission of the Happy Montessori School is to provide the essentials of quality education for young children:  support, predictability, warmth, and acceptance in the context of intellectually-stimulating, enriching activities.  We are influenced by the Montessori philosophy, which recommends a structured environment for children to develop to their full potential.

Our New York-state accredited school offers children aged 2.8 (2 years, 8 months) through 6 years a secure and stimulating environment to learn and grow. Loving, certified teachers nurture children to act, think, and rely upon themselves. We have four sunny, cheerful classrooms and a spacious outdoor playground. Our curriculum is a wonderful combination of Montessori philosophy and support of the New York State Standards for learning.

Door-to-door transportation is available for children Port Washington and parts of Manhasset.

We have an accredited kindergarten program for families who wish to remain in a small group setting for an additional year before elementary school.
