The Parkside Montessori School
53 Norwood Avenue
Upper Montclair, NJ 07043
Is a pre-school for children ages two and a half to five serving the families of Montclair, Glen Ridge and surrounding communities. Its directors have been operating the program for over 30 years. It is non-denominational and non-discriminatory.
The mission of The Parkside Montessori School is to cultivate curiosity, independence, social responsibility, and a lifelong love of learning.
The children do not wear their costumes to school beforehand.  It makes what is already a very exciting time a little to long for children so young.
Please send in a box of disposal vinyl sterile gloves for all the daily cleaning that we are doing.
Please strictly adhere to your entry time. 
Side 1 - 8:45, Side 2 - 9:00
Also please be prompt at pickup at 11:30, 12:30 or 3:00.  
If you know there may be a problem, please give us a call rather than send an e-mail
If you need to contact us during the course of the day about anything, please do it with a phone call 
School Closed
Wed-Fri Nov. 24-26
Thanksgiving Break
We will be holding informal teacher conferences in early December.  Again this year, because of Covid, we are unable to hold in-person conferences.  They will take the form of a phone call,  a face time call or a zoom meeting.  We will be sending you the contact information of the teacher who will be doing your conference, and you can contact her directly.  More information will follow. 
Please remember to mark all of your child’s outerwear, sweaters, hats, gloves, extra bags of clothing, backpacks, lunch boxes and also water bottles.  It makes our transition times so much easier.  Also, please don’t forget to mark any new clothing such as lighter jackets, sweaters, and hats.
As we are all well aware, COVID-19 has required a number of modifications in the way schools operates.
