Grades: PK - K | 89 students
Apple Montessori was founded by Rex and Jane Bailey in 1971.
Our young but rich history is the result of the initial vision and determination of Jane Bailey, a Montessori teacher who emigrated from Scotland, who knew the importance of an early childhood education.
Unhappy with the traditional approach to learning and motivated by her own young children, she opened one of the first Montessori schools in northern New Jersey.
The philosophy upon which Apple Montessori School is based embraces the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Our method is designed to build upon the individual skills and knowledge acquired in the pre-school and kindergarten years.
By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in their own learning process.
He or she can move through new challenging materials quickly, or on to another experience without the boredom of waiting for others to catch up.
He or she can repeat these same activities until mastery is achieved.
This can be done without frustration of being pushed ahead before one is ready.
His or her own feelings of accomplishment act as a reinforcement to succeed.
