Montessori School Deal, NJ
Welcome to a new paradigm in education. At Monmouth Montessori near Deal, we adapt to meet the needs of your child rather than asking them to fit into our mold. Students here are encouraged to choose an area of interest and the teachers assist them until they are comfortable exploring on their own. The environment is structured with five areas of study to choose from: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Geography and Culture. Once a student is engaged, they are allowed as much time as they need to fully explore the subject, to grasp challenging concepts, or to work through the knots of a problem. A teacher is always there to assist but never to interfere when a leaner is succeeding. Our foundation is built on the idea that children are naturally driven to learn and that it is our job to nurture that and get out of the way.
Our AMS-member school is divided into preschool, kindergarten and elementary levels with multi-age classrooms that use Montessori-approved materials to entice children to explore each subject area. The air-conditioned classrooms are a child’s world. All the appointments, including the shelves, chairs, and sinks, are child sized so that students have control and access in every area. Learning does not end in the classroom. We have ample space for running and playing out in our playground and even a pool for summer fun.
Monmouth Montessori near Deal also places a strong focus on character development and community awareness. We know that to teach the whole child, we must cultivate moral development as well as academic achievement. Our students are taught courtesy and manners and use respectful words and movements with everyone. They are made aware that they are part of a community and that they have a responsibility to act ethically and compassionately in the world.
