SUNY Schenectady Montessori Preschool

SUNY Schenectady Montessori is the Early Childhood Program's Integrated Laboratory Preschool located in the Gateway Building on the College campus. The curriculum demonstrates best practices in Early Childhood Education and Preschool Special Education.

The preschool operates 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday, provides a breakfast and lunch, and follows the Capital District Beginnings academic calendar, which includes a summer program component for 6 weeks in July and August.

SUNY Schenectady Montessori enrolls children ages 3 to 4 years. SUNY Schenectady Montessori, through a collaboration with Schenectady Day Nursery, is eligible to offer Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) for child care subsidies which will assist qualified families in paying children's tuition. Since SUNY Schenectady Montessori is on a State University of New York campus, SUNY Child Care Block Grant monies may be available for qualified SUNY Schenectady student families in paying children's tuition.
