Webster Montessori School

About WMS

Webster Montessori School is a close-knit, internationally diverse community of students, families, and staff.  Students benefit from a strong classroom environment and families appreciate the quality care available throughout the year. Parent education opportunities and social events round out the school’s focus on supporting families.

Our recently expanded building provides an environment designed to optimize children’s experience in and out of the classroom.

The school is a non-profit institution chartered by the New York State Regents and recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).  It is one of only 200 Montessori schools in the US and six in New York State meeting AMI's school standards.
