Welcome to The Alcott School

Alcott School is Moving Forward!  

We're all excited to catch up with our returning children and to meet our incoming class!  Please see below for specifics about our re-opening.

Alcott is a Montessori preschool founded in 1968 with a mission to

provide all children with the opportunity to develop independence, an awareness of their own abilities, and a feeling of self-worth.

Ours is a holistic approach to learning based on the belief that a child learns best in a social environment which supports and respects their unique development.

What Our Families Say About Alcott:

“I feel so grateful and lucky that

my kids’ first school experience

has been at Alcott. It is a warm,

child centered, and peaceful  learning environment with exceptionally dedicated teachers.  I know I will cry when our time here is over.

“After having two kids at Alcott for a total of 4 years so far, we feel really lucky to have landed here.”

  – Crystal, parent of children in our

  Montessori and SCIS programs 

  - Caitlin, parent of children in our 

    Montessori program

“Some people come into our

lives and leave footprints on

our hearts and we are never

the same. ” That is what everyone at the Alcott School has meant to my son, me, as his mother, and our whole family. Thank you for your dedication, support and unconditional love.”
