Monmouth Montessori near Brick Township
It’s time for a new approach in education. At Monmouth Montessori near Brick Township, we believe that the Montessori Method of education is the key to empowering students to build a successful life. Our philosophy emphasizes a collaborative environment with multi-aged classrooms, an absence of grades and tests, and self-directed learning for long blocks of time. The research bears out the results. In addition to scoring well on standardized tests, Montessori children are ranked above average on such criteria as following directions, turning in work on time, listening attentively, using basic skills, showing responsibility, asking provocative questions, showing enthusiasm for learning, and adapting to new situations.
Our classrooms offer students free choice of work in five areas of study: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Geography and Culture. Your child will be allowed as much time as they need to fully explore a subject, to grasp challenging concepts, or to work through a problem. We also believe in teaching the whole child which means we nurture your child’s moral development along with their academic achievement. A child’s natural drive to learn is properly channeled by integrity and compassion. Our students are made aware that they are part of the world community and that they have a responsibility to act ethically and to treat everyone with respect.
