I just needed to write a review on this wonderful, quaint school. My daughter has attended this school for 2 years. She just graduated this year and I must say, I am very happy to have chosen this school for her. Ms. Heidi and Annette are the 2 main staples of this school, their sincere love and care for each child is quite apparent. The other teachers are energetic and enthusiastic and they all complement each other well. My daughter has learned a great deal and has been exposed to a lot of different ideas. Her knowledge of geography, reading, mathematics, I believe exceeds many children her age in no small part to this school. If you want a school that teaches your child to clean up after themselves, free and independent thought, manners, and of course, math, reading, geography, this is a great school. You'll feel like it's a family affair. They will care for your child, you will feel safe and comfortable knowing that they are receiving a great education. I highly recommend this school

After interviewing other schools, as soon as my husband and I sat in on a class we looked at each other and knew this was the school for our daughter. The director Heidi and all 4 teachers rotate the classroom paying close attention to each child, reviewing lessons and encouraging them. The children are taught to be kind, thoughtful, patient and independent. They sing and learn sign language too! The environment is neat, calm and orderly. This is a well rounded school. To see my daughter's achievements has been more times than once, jaw dropping. She started when she was 3 and is now graduating Kindergarten. We will miss this school immensely. If I had to do it all over I would again choose New World Montessori.

Both of my daughters (now ages 10 and 8) attended New World Montessori as pre-school and kindergarten students. They received an excellent education and strong foundation for learning. While academics are important, I believe it is just as important to note what they were taught in terms of citizenship. Respect, kindness and compassion are modeled by teachers and expected of students at all times. In the years since they left NWM and began attending public schools, every teacher and administrator my daughters have worked with has remarked favorably about the respectful manner and tolerance shown by my daughters to adults and children alike. With public school classroom student-teacher ratios averaging 22:1, I believe it is remarkable and credit the girls' pre-school teachers for setting such a fine example. NWM fosters the growth of the whole child.

Our son attended New World Montessori School in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ and the pre school is wonderful. It is an extremely well organized and supplied Montessori learning environment that is a calm and pleasant. The staff is friendly and loving to the children and the facility is impeccably clean and competitively priced. We would highly recommend this pre school.

I feel so fortunate to have found this gem! It is a great place. Academics are amazing. I am very happy with the warm and friendly staff that is so well prepared day after day. I feel that each child is given so much attention and one on one time. Parent and teacher communication is great. I am so pleased with this school!
