Alfred Montessori School Receives ACAF Grant

The Alfred Montessori School recently received $800.00 to help them improve the security of their building. This grant money will be used to help them purchase a new lockset and key fobs for their front entrance. Back in 2016 the school had made an investment for the health and safety of their children, staff and families by securing their rear entrance. Now both entrances will have a secure access.

The Alfred Montessori School is located on South Main Street in Alfred. They offer programs for: infants (6 weeks – 18 months), toddlers (18 – 36 months), preschool (3 – 6 years) and after school (5-12 years). For more information about the Alfred Montessori School please visit their web site at:
