What Makes a Good Preschool?
Preschool is important because a nurturing environment provides young children with the support they need to thrive. The best thing about Montessori school is that children learn at their own pace, using developmentally-appropriate and evidence-based practices. Our preschool and kindergarten programs at Alpine Montessori in Andover, NJ offer a nurturing environment and incredible staff you can trust.
Montessori – Child-Centric Approach To Learning & Development
Our staff of dedicated Early Childhood Educators understands the principles of Montessori, including its child-centric approach to learning and development. The activities available for children at Alpine Montessori include both structured and unstructured educational play, which allow children to interact with peers from different ages and backgrounds. Unlike other types of kindergarten and preschool, Montessori students are allowed to explore and interact with their environment and other children so that their learning is self-directed and independent while also being supported by knowledgeable and experienced teachers. Learning activities do not depend on a child’s age but on their stage of development. Teachers support each student individually because of the low staff to student ratio.
Crucial Foundation For Learning & Development
The emotional, social, and cognitive growth of children happens organically, as each child experiences a different rate and trajectory of development. Preschool provides the crucial foundation for learning and development. Our staff recognizes and respects the unique individuality of children, and will support each student’s development through the curricula and activities offered at our Montessori preschool in Andover NJ. Choosing a preschool in Andover is easier because there is a solid Montessori option available at Alpine.
