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.
Our start time for Side 1 is 8:45 and for Side 2 is 9:00. 
Entry time is very busy so please observe those times carefully as the Side 2 teachers from 8:45 - 9:00 are helping the Side 1 children with their morning transition and are sometimes not in the side 2 classroom before 8:55. 
Thank you for your cooperation.
We keep extra Parkside clothes including pants, shirts, socks and underwear if a child’s extra zip-lock bag here is empty.  We seem to be almost completely out of these extra clothes.  Please check to see if you have any of our Parkside clothes at your home, especially pants.   Thank you.
If you need to contact us during the course of the day about anything, please do it with a phone call
If you child wears boots to school, please be sure to send in shoes for him or her to change into, and please label all hats, scarves, gloves, boots, etc.
Thanks in advance for helping us to stay as organized as we can.  It can really be a challenge during the winter months!
The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn.
