The Montessori Method

The Montessori method is an approach to teaching and learning that recognizes the tremendous capacity of very young children to absorb the environment that is their immediate world. The classroom environment is prepared so that children can experience the satisfaction of concentration and independent work and develop the intellectual, social and physical skills which make life engaging.

What Makes Alpine Montessori Work?

Alpine Montessori of Millburn 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 unique 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.

Our son’s time at Alpine Montessori has been everything my wife and I had hoped for. The affection and attentiveness our 3 1/2 year old receives from the teaching staff is fantastic. Between the experiences he shares with us daily, and what we witness during drop-off, pick up, and school meetings, we know our son gets personal attention and love from the staff. He is never made to feel like a “pack animal” in a group setting. Two years in.. and he’s still getting daily hugs from the teachers. I also constantly see the staff on their knees to be at a child’s height when they talk with the kids. As for the academics, we’ve seen growth in his basic understanding of numbers, letters, shapes, and overall comprehension of basic life skills.. and that’s reflected at home whether at the kitchen table.. or being attentive during book readings. He talks about his “shelf work” and specialized workbooks in his classroom. He also tells us about the celebration the teaching staff gives him when he completes his workbooks. The small school environment has also been great for our son. He’s met new friends and loves going to the library and playground. In short, we could not be happier with Alpine. My wife and I are happy and feel good when we drop off our son at school each morning.. and more importantly, so is our son!

My daughter has been attending Alpine Montessori since she was 2 1/2. This year she will be in the Kindergarten class.We absolutely love this school and its staff. They truly care about your child and constantly go the extra mile. As a parent i cannot ask for better teachers or a better environment. It has been the best introduction to education for my daughter. I wish the school grades would go beyond kindergarten :). I will be truly happy and sad when my daughter graduates. At Alpine it feels like one big happy family who cares about one another. Bottom line – you won’t regret enrolling your child at this school. 🙂

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 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!!
