Montessori School Neptune City, NJ
Monmouth Montessori near Neptune City is a member of the American Montessori Society and home to specially-trained Montessori teachers. We have equipped our sunny, air-conditioned classrooms with beautiful and inviting hands-on materials for student at the preschool, kindergarten and elementary level. We’ve built a child-size environment that puts young students right at home so they can learn in a restful space. We also attend to the sensorial and emotional needs of our students by placing an emphasis on serenity, respect and courtesy. Students will find that it is easy to concentrate in a quiet but busy classroom. Hushed voices and polite manners show students and teachers alike that they respected. Kindness and courtesy show our community that we care and that they are valued.
Maria Montessori, founded the Method on the belief that inside every child is a knowledge seeker, an independent being who is driven to grow and learn with our help or, sometimes, in spite of it. At Monmouth Montessori near Neptune City, we prepare an environment rich in opportunity with caring teachers to guide our students. Then, we get out of the way! Experience has taught us that students will choose a path of interest and explore that path to exhaustion. When learning is self-directed, we see that students engage in purposeful work and that they can pursue the subject for surprisingly long periods of intense concentration.
Of course, our students are children and need time to play for play’s sake. We have a wonderful outdoor space with a playground and pool and we regularly attend yoga, art classes and play music to nourish the soul. In addition to academics, a large part of a Montessori education is grace and courtesy. We require our students to address everyone with respect and kindness and rare occasions of conflict are resolved immediately. This is an environment of peace.
