“My son was here for 2 years and we are really grateful to the entire staff at Alpine for his wonderful time there. The amount of love, care and personal attention that he received from each of his teachers is beyond words. Everyone was so kind and patient towards such a high energy toddler, disciplining him at the same time- which is commendable. The school focuses on academics as well as life skills which is equally important to us. We hope to be back for our younger kid soon!”
Our daughter joined Alpine Montessori – Millburn for Pre-k 4 year class of the 2019-2020 school year. When our daughter first joined Alpine Montessori, she was initially very shy. But gradually she gained a lot of confidence and became more expressive. Even though she joined for a short period, the school had a lasting impression on her. I greatly admired the teaching philosophy of the school, and the teachers took great care of our daughter. They were also very nice to us, the parents. At the end of every week, they gave detailed feedback of my daughters progress and what areas she needed to work on. My daughter loved her school and teachers so much that even during weekends she wanted to go to school! The teaching plan included a nice combination of fun play activities with traditional learning. The Alpine Montessori teachers and staff provided a warm and friendly atmosphere for my daughter to take her first steps in her education. The school and her teachers will definitely have a lasting impression on her, and prepare her for the next phase of her education.
I would highly recommend Alpine Montessori of Millburn to any parents looking for high-quality early-stage education and development for kids.
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.
