We work to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-confidence, and a love of learning. We respect the uniqueness of each student by helping each child develop skills at periods of greatest readiness and sensitivity. Brookeside Montessori serves children in preschool through 6th grade. Brookeside Montessori offers full-day Kindergarten and half-day Kindergarten Enrichment options. Extended school hours are offered before and after school for those who need it.

The school's child-centered educational environment provides activities and a Pennsylvania state approved curriculum appropriate to each child's developmental stage. The integrated curricula are guided by a highly trained staff, who is aware of the needs of the individual child. The children are in mixed-age settings, which allow them to build long-term relationships with other children and their teachers within a caring academic community.

The child's experience is more complete when parents and family commit to an active role in their child's education. Parents are given opportunities to participate in school activities and in the Home and School Association programs. As the school and home work together, the child develops the confidence needed to venture out into the world and become involved in projects which will serve the community. This dynamic partnership of child, parent, and teacher, develops a consistent Montessori framework for learning and reinforces our core values: "Every child is gifted…every child has needs."
As a teacher, I greatly appreciate the importance of early education and the many positive academic and behavioral gains children can make through exposure to high-quality teachers in an academically enriching environment. I did my homework, searched high and low, and found Brookeside Montessori School to be among the absolute best in early education. I could not speak more highly of the staff and their commitment to my child. My child has benefited in a million and one ways, in no small part, due to her time at Brookeside.

The choice to send our two children to Brookeside Montessori has proven to be the best educational decision thus far. We have sent our children to both the Pre-Kindergarten as well as the Full Day Kindergarten programs. Brookeside Montessori helped tailor a schedule that met our needs. This is just one of many ways that the school puts the child's needs first. The first time that we visited the school, it was evident that their focus is on each child as an individual. They go beyond academics such as teaching life skills and manners while encouraging respect and positive attitudes. Each time that we enter the school, we see consistency in the teachers and staff. We are confident that Brookeside Montessori has given our children some great foundations for them to carry throughout their lives.
