expansion of our facilities. We seek educators eager to join a school that blends authentic
Montessori instruction with a permaculture-based outdoor education program. At CMS,
hands-on student learning extends beyond the classroom to our permaculture farm: working
greenhouse,Three Sisters Garden, Food Forest, outdoor/forest classroom, farm animals and
surrounding forests, creeks, and rivers.

Who we are: CMS is a private, non-profit school inspired by the permaculture ethics of people
care, earth care, and fair share, on 63 acres nestled between the Mahicannituck and Catskill
Mountains. Our Inclusivity statement serves as a guidepost for how we define ‘being in
community’ and what learning looks like here including developing an appreciation for and
building a community with those of different spiritual beliefs, cultural heritages, racial and gender
identities, economic backgrounds, and other affiliations. The land surrounding the school also
inspires and informs our work as we guide the children to become global citizens and stewards
of this land. Opening in the Fall of 2020, we currently serve toddlers – 5th grade in five authentic
Montessori classrooms across two restored barns and a farmhouse, and will next launch our
Secondary program.
