Welcome! Thank you for considering Monmouth Montessori Academy as your child’s place of development and education. When my husband and I began this journey four years ago, we were determined to create an exceptional learning and caring environment for children, including our own three children. We created a clean and bright space that feels like an extension of home. We followed The American Montessori Society’s utmost standards for a quality Montessori school. We hired phenomenal teachers who not only teach, but know, nurture, support and cherish your child. What I did not anticipate, however, was the wonderful community that would enfold. The parents that began walking through the door each day became friends. Their children took over my heart. The school became OURS. Something amazing has happened here and I feel more committed than ever to having a school where children can thrive.
According to Dr. Maria Montessori’s research, the most vital period in a child’s development is between the ages of three and six. What they learn during this time will stay with them forever. Because of this fact, many parents are increasingly more sophisticated and savvy when selecting a preschool. Monmouth Montessori Academy is committed to the child-centered learning philosophy that fosters academic excellence, personal growth and cultural awareness while nurturing our children’s spirits.
Let’s work together in creating a rich and meaningful start to our children’s lives.

OUR MISSION AND VISION
Our mission at Monmouth Montessori Academy is to empower the imagination, mind and heart of each child. Guided by the work of Maria Montessori, we create an environment where children are inspired to realize their academic, personal and social potential.
Empowering the imagination, the child is challenged in classroom environment which inspires self-paced, individualized and guided discovery. The curriculum prepares the child for academic success while stimulating creativity, curiosity and a love of learning
Empowering the mind, the child is respected as an individual. Self-esteem, independent learning and self-confidence are fostered by the daily activities of the classroom community.
Empowering the heart, the child becomes an essential member of the global community, working for peace and a better environment. Through shared activities, the child develops a respect for others and a desire for peaceful problem-solving.
At MMA , each child becomes independent life-long learners who are academically grounded and socially confident about their place in the world.
A large part of Monmouth Montessori Academy’s charm lies in the setting. We have recently moved to a charming 10,000 square foot building in Spring Lake Heights, NJ. Built in 1888 (refurbished, of course!), the new school has a similar history and awe of our prior building. We’ll be ready to open in September 2016 and WE CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO SEE IT!
