Welcome. Please join us in pursuing a new ideal in education. At Monmouth Montessori Academy of Monmouth County, we design our curriculum individually to meet the needs of your child instead of requiring them to conform to an institutional boilerplate. Here, students here are free to choose an area of interest and highly-trained teachers act as their guides in finding the best approach to master the task. Our Montessori environment offers students hands-on projects both in the NJ state core curriculum and beyond: Practical Life Activities, Sensorial, Mathematics, Oral Language, Grammar and Word Study, Read and writing Geography, History, Science, Music, Art and Physical Education.
Students are allowed as much time as they need to discover a new interest or to delve deeper into an old favorite, to grasp challenging concepts or to work through the knots of a problem. Our teaching philosophy is built on the idea that children are naturally driven to learn. Our role is to assist but never to interfere in a child’s work when they are succeeding on their own. This affords them the opportunity to develop the intellectual independence and self-discipline that mark the lifelong learner.
Monmouth Montessori Academy of Monmouth County also places a strong focus on character and ethical development. Students are taught grace, courtesy, and respect alongside their scholarly pursuits. Kindness counts and our students are taught that they are called to act ethically and compassionately in the classroom, in the community, and in the world.
Our AMS-member school consists of preschool, kindergarten and lower elementary levels of multi-age classrooms. We 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.
