“I have studied the child. I have taken what the child has given me and expressed it and that is what is called the Montessori Method.”
The Best Environment For Young Minds To grow
Montessori Academy, founded in 1965, is the oldest Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) accredited Montessori School in New Jersey. Our 11 acre campus includes herb, flower and vegetable gardens and farm animals–which the children help to maintain and care for–as well as meadows, nature and barefoot trails, and a wide variety of indigenous and exotic trees for botany study.
Our preschool through middle school students and staff together form a diverse and vibrant community. With Maria Montessori’s child-centered approach to learning at their core, our programs foster independence, creativity, social and moral development. Environmental and social awareness are integral parts of the children’s daily experiences. Through our skilled staff, AMI certified teachers and parent partnerships, we have created a nurturing environment designed to instill peace and support the intrinsic love of learning in each child.
