Honor the Child
Founded in 1978, the Homestead School bases its curriculum on the Montessori educational system. Its teachers are strict adherents to this teaching philosophy, “an innovative, child-centered approach to learning.” In addition to being one of one of the most respected Montessori schools, the Homestead School brings children back to nature. The school is located in rural upstate New York on 85 acres of farm land, streams, marsh lands, and nature walks.
