School History

Our journey

The Montessori Day School of Brooklyn began in 1977 as a drop-in program for working families of the YWCA on Atlantic Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, where it operated until 2003, when the PTA formed a nonprofit organization to operate MDS as an independent school.  In 2010, MDS moved from two locations (on Washington Avenue and out of Grace Church in Park Slope) to our current happy home at 237 Park Place. While we serve families from many parts of Brooklyn, MDS has become part of the fabric of our Prospect Heights neighborhood.
