Morning Star Montessori School is located on the first floor of a newly renovated town house in the historic Sage district of downtown Troy. We are dedicated to providing an authentic Montessori education for Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten age students. Our goal is to empower children to realize their fullest potential. Our low student-teacher ratio and beautiful, stimulating learning environment allow each child to feel secure, respected and challenged. We are proud to offer weekly "Music With Jodi" Sessions, Writer's Workshop, Mindfulness Practice, and Classical Fine Arts instruction. At Morning Star Montessori School, parents and teachers are partners in their commitment to raising intelligent, compassionate world citizens.
