The Montessori School of Syracuse welcomes you to attend our Montessori Play Group for children ages 18 months to 3 years old. The play group is a free-play time with developmentally appropriate toys and materials, where your child can observe and interact with other children. The group is hosted by Montessori trained teachers, who are available to chat with you about child development, Montessori education and our school.


Montessori School of Syracuse (MSS) offers Montessori education for children ages three through twelve, in carefully designed classroom environments where children engage in activities that assist in their development, language acquisition, growing independence, and understanding of the world. Our toddler Play Group offers you the opportunity to give your child time interacting with other young children, meet other parents, and learn more about our school.



Q: Do I need to RSVP?

A: After the overwhelming response we received for our previous playgroups, we have developed a new space to accommodate more guests and instituted a sign up form online. Please reserve a space for each person attending the playgroup. We do have limited space and therefore have to limit the number of children/parents that can attend.  Thanks for your understanding.

Q: Do I drop off my child or stay for the entire playgroup?

A: The playgroup is for both of you. It is a fun opportunity to learn new things with your child.

Q: My child is not in the age range specified. Can I still attend?

A: This playgroup is designed specifically for children ages 18 months to 3 years of age, using developmentally appropriate materials for this age range. If you have a child that falls within the range and are unable to find a sitter for a younger sibling, you can bring them along as long as you understand that the playgroup is geared toward children at least 18 months of age and not older than 3.

Q: Is there anything I need to bring to the playgroup?

A: There’s nothing special you need to bring along, but if you do want to bring along a snack for your child, please refrain from bringing in any snacks that contain peanuts or peanut butter as we do have students with peanut allergies.

Q: Is there a cost or obligation to attend the playgroup?

A: There is NO cost or obligation. This playgroup is being offered by the Montessori School of Syracuse to give you an opportunity to meet other families who have an interest in Montessori.

Q: Where is the playgroup being held and where should I park?

A: The playgroup is being held at the Montessori School of Syracuse (155 Waldorf Parkway). Follow the signs for the playgroup as we have a new location. In the past, the playgroup has been held in the main building Great Room, but this year, we will be holding it in one of our cottages.

Q: What will my child be doing at the playgroup?

A: Your child will be able to play with other children in the same age range, interact with a Montessori teacher, work with Montessori materials and practice their social skills.


We look forward to seeing you!
