The Montessori philosophy is engaging and communicative. We want our children to enter into an open partnership with their parents about their education. In return, this helps encourage the student to be self-motivated and disciplined. They will develop a positive self-image and healthy self-esteem that leads children to reach their full potential as adults. In addition, the Montessori philosophy extends outside the classroom to instilling a personal responsibility to our wide world. This sparks endless imagination in the children of Montessori schools.

Woodland Hill Montessori School offers outstanding preschool programs for 3 to 6 year-olds designed to foster growth in independence and problem solving; stimulate concentration and coordination; nurture oral communication skills; and encourage each child’s joy in discovery and learning.

Preschool Programs Albany NY Our private school's preschool program curriculum incorporates pre-reading and math skill development, science activities, geography and cultural studies, sensory exercises and environmental education along with additional opportunities  in music, art, physical education and Spanish.

Teachers guide students through the curriculum as children are ready for each new challenge, introducing lessons and then letting children practice what they have learned. 

Our emphasis is placed on the process rather than the product of learning, our aim is to develop a love of work and a joy of learning.

Both of my children attend Woodland Hill. Guess what they tell me every day when I ask them how school was? "Great! Awesome! I wish I could stay forever!" Seriously. They really say those things. Every day. Then they proceed to excitedly tell me about all the cool things they did, before I can even make it back to the main road. They don't mind when vacation ends, and they don't wish for snow days. The teachers and staff exude kindness, respect, and a deep understanding of education. The Montessori method is respected and fully implemented. I have learned so much about how Montessori really works since my kids started there, because Woodland Hill also offers wonderful, hands-on parent education events throughout the year. Their specials (gym, art, music, language) programs are outstanding, and the community of parents is wonderful. There is so much more to add--if you schedule a visit, you will see for yourself: smiling, engaged children everywhere you turn, from the very little ones all the way up to the Jr. High students. It's truly remarkable. I feel so happy and very appreciative and grateful knowing that my kids are in a great place every day, where their minds and spirits are being truly nourished.

Pros: Caring, gentle and joyful environment. Enriching educational philosophy and programs; kids are taught how to learn, not just what to learn. No standardized testing of young kids. Outdoor play and a true physical education program is a regular part of the curriculum.

Cons: Paying for elementary school is not something we had planned ahead for, nor were financially comfortable doing immediately. However, the school went out of their way to help us get up and running with a tuition payment plan that works for our family, and they continue to do so. We are very grateful for their flexibility.
