a Childs Potential

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
—Maria Montessori

Whats in a Name?

The New School of Lancaster has undergone a transformation that begins with our name!
We are now New School Montessori, a name keeping with the Montessori educational philosophy that has guided our teachers for the last 30 years.

Discovering Us

“What the New School provides is a wonderful environment where children are able to become active learners. The added bonus is the level of respect they learn for their peers, their teachers and the environment. We couldn’t find that combination anywhere else.”

Marcy Radcliffe, New School Montessori Parent
