Since 1978, our Montessori philosophy, creative curriculum, and loving staff have developed the social, emotional, cognitive,and physical needs of our students. Each student’s unique personality is encouraged and respected as an important member of the Montessori community. Our students have the opportunity to work at their own pace to indulge in the innate willingness to learn.

The arts are vital to the school’s curriculum and fit perfectly within the Montessori method. Through the arts, our children develop autonomy and self-reliance, sensory-motor skills, and the ability to think abstractly. The school arranges frequent programs with the museums and galleries of Snug Harbor. We offer parents several education options.

Our Transitional Toddler program provides children at 2 years of age their first educational experience under the guidance of a Montessori teacher. Our Pre-Primary (including PKA and Kindergarten) programs provide children 3 to 5 years of age a rich curriculum of Practical Life, Sensorial Materials, Math, Language Development, Fine Arts, Crafts, Music Exploration, Horticulture, Body Movement and Cultural Extensions. Our Kindergarten program is offered to children who have completed the PKA Program. This is the culmination of the 3-year Pre-Primary program. It is a skills-based curriculum with workbooks as well as hands-on Montes-sori materials to reinforce what the child has learned.
