Monmouth Montessori Academy is the best preschool we could possibly have chosen for our daughter. The administrator and teachers are such wonderfully nurturing people with whom we can feel completely comfortable entrusting the care and teaching of our child. They encourage daily parental updates, and let me know about her day. She is encouraged to try new and different things every day and she absolutely loves going to school and loves her teachers. Her self esteem and self confidence is sky high since starting this school. She comes home singing the songs she learned in class and is always so proud of the work that she is doing. She truly enjoys being around her classmates, who are all such nice children. The other parents are also team players in that they volunteer to help each other out whenever needed. It really makes the school members and parents feel like a part of the family. The kids are taught so many wonderful things that make them well-rounded individuals ready for the great big world around them. We will attend this school for as long as they will let us. :-)
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!
