New Spaces that Build Community

Gladwyne Montessori's planned playgrounds, expanded parking, welcome gazebo, expanded makerspace, and elementary learning terrace.

Gladwyne Montessori's teachers cultivate a love of learning that remains with students for life. It is no surprise that many of our children grow into Gladwyne Montessori parents, creating a family legacy with our school and a special, shared learning experience that spans decades and generations.

New Spaces: The Campaign for Gladwyne Montessori will optimize our existing spaces while creating new opportunities for our faculty and community to shape our students' lives.

Specifically, we will:  

  • Optimize existing learning spaces within our historic Merion Square building.

  • Introduce a new faculty and administrative house that will be a welcome center for new and prospective families, a retreat for our faculty, and a gathering place for our community.

  • Enhance student safety, eliminating the need for children to cross our parking lot or Youngsford Road to access spaces for outdoor learning and play. 

  • Address our parking needs, enabling our community to gather with new ease as they see their children in action during classroom and school events.

  • Provide dedication opportunities that tell the story of our school, celebrating our founders, our teachers, and their incredible legacy at our school.
