I absolutely love this place. My 2 year old daughter has been going there since she was 8 months old. She has grown into such a smart girl and we owe a lot to the excellent programs offered by RMS. Highly recommended!

I am a parent who 2 children have attended RMS for a period over 4 years. The director and staff are amazing, warm, friendly, and loving. Who ever is posting the previous review couldn't be more incorrect. First, toddler rooms are upstairs, not downstairs, all classrooms downstairs although basement level have windows, and each classroom has been freshly painted with beautiful bright colors. My question would be if you found the staff to be stern, mean, and alarming, why would you want a phone call back to go for a visit. Your review makes no sense!!! We couldn't be happier with the school and staff!! Visit for yourself and form your own opinon, you won't be disappointed!!

I highly recommend this school and their teachers. My three daughters attended the school for over 3 years and they loved their experience (we recently moved so no longer attend). In that time, my girls were happy and excited each day to attend the Montessori school and never complained of any student or teacher. My experience was equally the same, I felt very safe and confident leaving my precious children in their hands. The school has a great, nurturing, one of a kind Staff - great experience with Miss Stacey, Ms. Rebecca, Ms. Cathy, Ms. Angelina, Ms. Peggy. The teachers go out of their way to create really wonderful and creative academic lessons and projects. I was alway impressed by the artwork and academics my daughters brought home. All in all, Rutherford Montessori is a well rounded school where they are focused on shaping our children into confident, kind hearted, community minded individuals.

We are so glad that we chose the Rutherford Montessori School for our daughter. Prior to choosing this school we interviewed 7 other preschools. My 3 year old had behavior issues and had never been left with anyone other than her parents or grandparents. After just 6 months at the school my daughter is no longer experiencing behavioral problems, she can write her entire name and she is speaking to us in Spanish! The staff is warm, loving and amazing at what they do. We have peace of mind when we drop her off each morning and there are days when we pick her up in the afternoon and she does not want to leave. I would highly recommend this school to any parent looking for a loving environment and great academic program for their child.
