Montessori School and Preschool Millburn NJ
Alpine Montessori of Millburn f/k/a The Montessori School of Millburn-Short Hills was established in 1978. This location is licensed for 89 children and is comprised of 6-7 smaller classrooms with a low teacher-student ratio. The school provides a very strong academic program which is delivered in a warm and nurturing environment.
There is a large community classroom where children get together for circle time, arts and crafts and additional activities. We also have a seperate reading/library where children can select books and spend time with the reading materials. There is also a playground/outdoor area for the children to play during outdoor time.
The progressive Montessori program at our school is designed as an excellent foundation for the continued education of children 2-1/2 to 6 years old. In addition to the Montessori daily lessons, language, writing and mathematical development. Through the years the school has been considered one of the best preschools for preparing young minds. The school remains on the recommended list of some of the area’s best private elementary schools.
My son (3 years old) has been here for 6 months and we absolutely love it! The principle and teachers are super nice and warm, which made it very easy for our son to get adjusted after moving across the country. The curriculum is a combination of traditional and Montessori which we really love. My son is very happy here and he is excited to go to school every morning!
My 3rd child in enrolled at Montessori of Millburn and i have to say- he loves it and we love it! I have tried most of the preschools in the area and this school blew us away. Teachers were warm and caring and the kids learned while still being able to be kids!!
My twin boys attended the school and recently graduated. Without any reservation, I can recommend this school to anyone still debating. The owner Mr Madia and his staff are very approachable, kind and thorough. Mrs Stromann and Mrs Lee are amazing. If there is an issue, they resolve it immediately. Cannot say enough about Mrs Morelli, Mrs Abazza, Mrs Palumbo and Mrs Price. They all take personal interest in each and every child.
