Montessori School and Preschool Millburn NJ
Alpine Montessori of Millburn was established in 1978. This location is licensed for 89 children and comprises 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 separate reading/library room where children can select books and spend time with 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 daily lessons in language, writing,and mathematics, the Montessori program consists of interactive activities to engage and boost early childhood development. Over the years, our school has been considered one of the best preschools for preparing young minds. Alpine remains on the recommended list of 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.
