School Notes

  • There is a large community classroom where children get together for circle time, arts and crafts and additional activities. We also have a separate reading/library where children can select books and spend time with the reading materials. There is also a playground/outdoor area for the children to play during outdoor time. The progressive Montessori program at our school is designed as an excellent foundation for the continued education of children 2-1/2 to 6 years old (full day kindergarten). The academic year runs from early September to mid June and the school day is from 9:00am to 3:00pm with half day (AM/PM) options available. Before and after care are also available for an incremental fee. The school also offers a Summer Camp from the middle of June through early/mid August. The camp blends fun summertime activities/crafts with weekly theme-based learning objectives.

School Reviews

5  
Alpine Montessori of Millburn was the best! This school became our daughters second home, each attended three years of school their (including Kindergarten). Our older daughter received the one-on-one attention needed to develop her fine mother skills and our younger the encouragement to take risks which helped her come out of her shell. The self confidence boost and practical skill development they received at Alpine made the transition to public schools so much easier (our youngest was accepted to three of the three private schools we interviewed at but as a family we decided public education was for us). Alpine teachers were continuously engaged with each students success. We were frequently informed of dynamics developing amongst children or any challenges our daughters might be facing. We discussed collaboratively interventions with our teachers and the overall experience within the school was a partnership geared towards our child's development. After our youngest graduated from kindergarten we moved out of New Jersey. When we return for a visit Alpine is always top of the list!We highly recommend Alpine Montessori of Millburn to any parent who is looking for a nurturing, dynamic and engaging atmosphere for their child`s early learning and development.
