Montessori School Brick NJ
Monmouth Montessori near Brick is the choice educational alternative for preschool, kindergarten, and elementary students. At our AMS-member Montessori school, students develop a lifelong love of learning, self-discipline, and a strong moral compass. Our air-conditioned classrooms are furnished with child-size shelves, desks, and Montessori learning tools that are designed to entice young students into educational activity. The prepared environment sets the stage for a child’s natural drive to explore and learn.
There are five areas of study in our classrooms: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Geography and Culture. Throughout the day, students are free to follow their interests in each of these areas and are encouraged to pursue each project for long periods of uninterrupted concentration. Teachers work with students one-on-one and in small groups to refine their interests and pique their curiosity. Once their work is in motion, our specially-trained staff knows that it is time to let the child discover the answers on their own. They observe, take notes, and facilitate learning but it is a collaborative rather than authoritarian relationship.
Monmouth Montessori near Brick is set on a charming one-acre campus with a playground and pool. Large windows allow plenty of natural sunlight to spill into our air-conditioned classrooms where you will find students busily engaged in hours of quiet, purposeful work. Grace and courtesy are a large part of our curriculum here and students know to be respectful of the concentration and work time of their peers. Multi-age classrooms are another distinct feature of our program. Just like in the real world, students cooperate and interact with people of different age groups and capabilities, learning from them and modeling for each other as they master each skill.
The Montessori Method has been around for over 100 years but it is still a new way of looking at education for most families. Here, your child will find they are free to learn at their own pace and discover how the world works without constraints on their time or intellectual curiosity.
