They don't get homework, as the kids do enough "work" in school as they explore the world around them, locally and globally.

Our 5-year-old daughter is just finishing up her second year of preschool at MMA and absolutely LOVES everything about it (and so do we)! The teachers are top notch and so nurturing and patient. The whole environment is extremely inviting as it encourages exploration of the world from the "Big Picture" view down to the little details of everyday practical life. Our daughter looks forward to going to school every day and doesn't usually want to leave when I come to pick her up. (Hides in the library or says, "Can I please finish up my work first?". ;-))

MMA focuses on developing and nurturing the whole child. The director, the teachers, and assistants are kind and caring. You walk in and you immediately know you're in a special place. I was also impressed by the academic rigor and work performed by the children. We are extremely grateful that our son is attending MMA.

Never have I seen a school where the owner cares so deeply about their students. After 1 yr with my 3 yr old in the school he is beyond what I ever could have imagined. Ok so thankful he had such a great first experience where he learned to love school and is obsessed with learning. Great teachers and an impressive way to teach kids so they learn and love it.

This school is awesome! My child loves going to school and he comes home very happy. Miss Balzarini is a great teacher and a wonderful influence giving the children the confidence and love of learning all young kids need.

After experiencing my little girl coming home day after day telling me how sad she was having to go to another "Unnamed Preschool", and in tears every morning begging me not to take her, I knew I had to look elsewhere! I checked out two Goddard schools and a local preschool and was not impressed for how much they were charging. The second I stepped foot into Montessori, I knew this was it. Now she comes home everyday with a huge smile and lots of great stories and wakes up saying she can't wait to go to school! What a difference! We immediately felt so welcome and comfortable! Thank you for showing her what these years are supposed to be like!

I am completely in love with the director, the school and most especially my son & daughters teacher, Mrs. DuBois. She greets them at their level with a handshake and warm smile and connects with them, fostering their strengths to grow and flourish. It is such a gentle, loving way to educate our children while fostering their self-esteem and encouraging them to find not only the joy in learning, but the joy in life.

This school knows how to inspire, build confidence, and make learning fun. My six year old daughter is now reading two years ahead of grade level and read very little when she started here. I have two sons who also went through montessori education through second grade and they are top of their class in public school / spelling bee champion and the other was accepted to mensa. I credit much of their success to montessori molding their talents and nurturing their curiosity for learning. This school is by far the best montessori we have experienced; we have tried three different montessori schools due to job moves around the country; some of these schools were much more expensive than MMA but we clearly see this school as the best education regardless of price. The teaching staff here includes the right mix of experience and youth they show they care about every single kid. I could not ask for more. I am giving my daughter the VERY BEST education and I sleep well knowing this. Don't take my word; visit this school and I am sure you will see why my child is thriving there and always comes home with a smile and a story to tell about what she learned.

This school is amazing. We feel lucky to have found such a special place during their first year. All the teachers are patient and caring. The administrator is so kind. My child had difficulties adjusting to school in the beginning of the year and all staff was absolutely amazing helping my child get through those first few weeks. Children are introduced to so many interesting things, even the very young ones. You can really feel the love here.

I LOVE this school! The teachers and director have made our daughter's first experience with school a HUGE success. She comes home singing songs and reciting little rhymes learned in class. She is so excited to show me her artwork and to tell me about her day. They were extremely patient, warm, and caring with her (and us!) the first month as she had a bit of an adjustment period. Now she can't wait to go to school to see her teachers and friends. I'm also impressed with the "whole child" approach and the quality of education that she is receiving in the pre-primary class. The school and teachers are amazing!

When it was time for our daughter to go to school, we knew our local public school wasn't going to cut it. We wanted to find a place where she would excel academically but also where she could be happy. MMA fits the bill and so much more. Her teachers encourage her strengths and seek innovative ways to work around her weaknesses - the personal attention is fantastic. Bullying and cruelty are not tolerated. Imagination and intellectual curiosity are encouraged. We love it!

I am so pleased with this school! It is absolutely the best decision I have ever made to enroll her at Monmouth Montessori. The teachers are exceptional and they truly care about my child as well as all the children. The administration is warm and inviting and truly wants everyone to feel as if we are all part of a community. My child is in the right place and my younger ones will be attending in the near future.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this school! Warm and inviting with great communication between the teachers and parents as well as with the administration. The staff at this school truly cares about my child and they do their best to make my child and my family feel like we are part of a community. The teachers are Incredible and the Director is truly amazing. She has gone above and beyond my expectations to make this a great learning environment. The icing on the cake is that the large playground is awesome and the school house is so charming and very clean. My child is blossoming and I am looking forward to many years here!

Everything about this school is amazing! The teachers and administration come together to really work with the parents and children. It becomes a wonderful community of everyone working together to build each other up and move forward together in the learning process. My daughter is a first time student this year and had been having some difficulty adjusting at the beginning. With the help of the teachers and the administration paying close attention to my daughter's needs, we were all able to find what was going to work to ease in her adjustment period. To show what a close community Monmouth Montessori Academy really is, not only did the staff work closely with my daughter to ease in her adjustment period, i noticed many of the other students would go to her and grab her hand as she walked into class in the morning or give her a hug or even just say good morning to her and ask her to have a good day that day. Now when I pick her up, she has to make sure she says goodbye to everyone! She and I absolutely LOVE this school.

I am so glad I found this school! My 5 year old is doing addition, subtraction, multiplication and geometry! This past summer 1st level reader books were a challenge for her, but now with only a month into the school year she is reading 2nd level reader books with ease. Great teachers!

This school is amazing!!! Picking a school is one of the most important decisions that a parent will ever make. I personally went to every school in the area. This school was the only school in the area that had the whole package. Happy children, true learning, an amazing and dedicated staff and teachers, cute fenced in playground, and PJ(the school bunny). I love that my child is not getting a "cookie cutter" education where every child learns the same thing. Monmouth Montessori is NOT a place where you will drop your child off and they will tell you they did exactly what the teacher told them to do. Rather, my child comes home daily excited about what SHE discovered and learned. I sit in amazement daily as my three year old tells me about using a hundreds board, writing a story, reading a book to her friends,etc. I truly feel that my child is receiving the best possible education and am so happy to be a part of this amazing school.

Phenomenal school! The Montessori curriculum at its best with wonderful teachers who are passionate about this method of learning. My 5 year old is in Kindergarten and cannot wait to get to school and doesn't want to leave when I pick her up.
