“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” – Maria Montessori
The O’Gorman Garden serves children (ages 2.9 years to 5 years) in a warm, nurturing Montessori setting. We offer both half and full day programs Monday through Friday.
We operate on a traditional school calendar: September to June, with a six week camp offered in the summer months. Please browse our website and attend one of our open house evenings to learn more about our small and impactful program, which has served Central Harlem families since 1998.
Applications for the 2020/2021 school year are being accepted now through Friday, December 20th.
The financial aid application deadline is Friday, January 3rd, 2020.
Join The O’Gorman Garden for a summer filled with nature, adventure, learning and fun! Our summer program is for children 3 to 6 years old with arts and crafts, yoga, nature workshops, and cooking using produce from our own vegetable garden. Plus weekly field trips to a cultural or nature destination such as the Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or wooded hike outside the city.
Please reach out in January 2020 to enroll your child. Spots fill up quickly, so don’t wait too long!
The Ned O’Gorman Scholarship Fund
Through the generous support of private foundations, individuals, and families, The O’Gorman Garden is able to offer scholarships to support the enrollment and tuition of students from families without financial means to attend the program. If you are interested in seeking a scholarship for your little student, please let the administration know and fill out the TADS application provided in the section above.
