Montessori School Neptune, NJ
Montessori schools take the power of education and put it where it belongs – with the students. We hope you will consider Monmouth Montessori Academy near Neptune, NJ as an exceptional alternative to your local public school. Maria Montessori proved that letting go of old ideas about control and a one-size-fits-all program is the key to advancing learning for all children. The Montessori Method encourages children to discover an area of interest and let their imagination and curiosity lead the way to academic excellence. Each child has their own intellectual path to follow, a built-in drive to learn and become their best self. The Montessori Method helps students tap into those drives and use them to open up their world to concrete facts as well as abstract concepts.
The Montessori classroom is designed to offer student the freedom to choose within the limits of a carefully equipped environment. All the materials in our multi-age classrooms are hands-on so students can see and feel concepts come alive in their hands. Their natural curiosity compels them to try each tool in the classroom until they have mastered them all. Older students naturally move onto abstract ideas and pen and paper work but they all begin with the basics. Additionally, MMA nurtures the inner life of each child by creating an environment of quiet contemplation, purposeful work and courteous respect for everyone.
Monmouth Montessori near Neptune holds specialized classes for preschool, kindergarten and elementary students in a renovated 19th-centry schoolhouse. Our air-conditioned classrooms are sunny and welcoming and designed with the desks, chairs and shelves at child height because it is their life laboratory. Students are free to choose their subject from five areas of study: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Culture. Parents are often surprised to find their child eagerly investigating areas they thought were off limits or stretching their attention span over longer and longer periods of time. Our teachers are able to see when a student is ripe for new learning experiences and are trained to help them channel their energy into intellectual and personal growth.
