At Apple Montessori School, we believe that the school community is responsible for discovering and nurturing the unique individual potential of each child.
Our curriculum provides a sound academic background while stimulating and challenging each child to meet his or her own particular needs and learning pace.
Our classrooms are rich with Montessori materials and supporting activities to promote intellectual as well as social growth.
We instill through example and action a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect and compassion for others.
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.

School Reviews

Excellent school where the children are encouraged to learn at their own pace. My daughter is reading fluently at age four and Spanish is being taught to her daily. A superb early introduction to academics, the children are given age-appropriate homework at age four which promotes discipline and responsibility. Teachers are very caring and I like that she has the same teacher from age 2 through kindergarten.
