Montessori School & Preschool in Millburn, NJ
Welcome to Alpine Montessori of Millburn!
With a low student:teacher ratio and small classrooms to accommodate each child’s unique needs, Alpine has been a proud provider of exceptional education since 1978. We offer a versatile curriculum designed to encourage personal growth, making our program unparalleled in the area.
Here, children learn at their own pace in a nurturing environment. From circle time to outdoor activities, our focus is on meeting the intellectual, social, and emotional needs of each student. The Pre-K of choice for young minds, ours is a robust foundation for ongoing education.
Established in 1978, Alpine Montessori of Millburn is a premier provider of exceptional early education. Our program is designed to harness each student’s strengths, with 6-7 smaller classrooms and a low teacher:student ratio. Staffed by compassionate professionals with years of experience, we provide a strong academic program and robust psychosocial foundation in a nurturing environment.
Alpine Millburn’s unique layout boasts a large community classroom where children often get together for circle time, arts and crafts, and a variety of other group activities. We also have a separate reading/library room where children are encouraged to select books based on their interests and skill level, and a colorful playground area for young minds to play during outdoor time.
The Montessori method is an excellent foundation for the continued education of young children. In addition to daily lessons in language, writing, and mathematics, interactive activities engage and boost early childhood development. Considered one of the best preschools for young minds, Alpine is frequently recommended by some of the area’s best private elementary schools.
We love Alpine and how welcoming they are to our son. Of course we wanted an academic and social environment where he could succeed but they also really care about him and have beautiful, bright classrooms. The positive environment shows and he looks forward to going to school. Can’t wait to send our daughter when she’s old enough.
My daughter graduated from Alpine this year (June 2019). I will truly miss the staff here. The teachers are wonderful and dedicated to making sure your child is learning yet having fun while they do so. I purchased two books for my daughter from Barnes and Noble. One was a Kindergarten workbook and the other was a first grade workbook. I was planning on using the first grade workbook at a later date. I couldn’t believe it when my daughter went through the kindergarten workbook and said ” mommy this one is just too easy”. I was just amazed. I will definitely be back to Alpine to enroll our second child when she is ready. I only wish the school would continue to at least 3rd grade :).
Alpine Montessori of Millburn was the best! This school became our daughters second home, each attended three years of school their (including Kindergarten). Our older daughter received the one-on-one attention needed to develop her fine mother skills and our younger the encouragement to take risks which helped her come out of her shell. The self confidence boost and practical skill development they received at Alpine made the transition to public schools so much easier (our youngest was accepted to three of the three private schools we interviewed at but as a family we decided public education was for us). Alpine teachers were continuously engaged with each students success. We were frequently informed of dynamics developing amongst children or any challenges our daughters might be facing. We discussed collaboratively interventions with our teachers and the overall experience within the school was a partnership geared towards our child’s development. After our youngest graduated from kindergarten we moved out of New Jersey. When we return for a visit Alpine is always top of the list! We highly recommend Alpine Montessori of Millburn to any parent who is looking for a nurturing, dynamic and engaging atmosphere for their child’s early learning and development.
