About The Caedmon School

Nursery, Preschool, Elementary School

Caedmon offers an early childhood through Grade 5 educational model for children ages 21 months through 10 years and an incredibly diverse and welcoming community. As the first Montessori school in Manhattan, our early childhood classrooms are bright with sunlight, wood, and engaging Montessori materials. In the elementary years, our Montessori-inspired approach incorporates Montessori values with a personalized education and continues to develop independence, coordination, concentration, organization, and curiosity. Additionally, students are exposed to a variety of hands-on curricula through design thinking, project-based learning, and having a voice and choice in the classroom.

Here are just a few highlights of our program:
29% FACULTY OF COLOR
20% MALE FACULTY
40% INTERNATIONAL FAMILIES
SPANISH (KINDERGARTEN THROUGH ELEMENTARY)
LATIN (GRADES 3 THROUGH 5)
VIOLIN (KINDERGARTEN THROUGH GRADE 3)
EXEMPLARY MIDDLE SCHOOL PLACEMENT (TYPICALLY 3 CHOICES PER GRADUATE)
EMOTIONALLY ENGAGED AND RESPONSIVE FACULTY

We invite you to learn more about our philosophy and approach to education and meet members of our community through a Virtual Tour & Panel Discussion and/or Open House and to get a sense of our community and how we work with children via one of our sample Curiosity Classes or Story Time. These events will allow you to see and hear for yourself the joy in learning that our students experience every day. There is no need to apply before scheduling any of these events.
