School Notes

Using traditional Montessori methods, The Montessori Children`s Academy (MCA) provides a developmentally challenging, yet appropriate, learning environment that engages children`s natural curiosity and helps them to develop a lifelong love of learning.

Our programs are enhanced by exposure to foreign language, health, the arts, and environmental education.

Our Kindergarten and Elementary students also enjoy technology and physical education classes, as well as a variety of enrichment experiences both in and out of the classroom.

Opportunities to plan and participate in community outreach and service projects align all of our students with the skills they will need to position themselves as future leaders in our global community.

With campuses in Morristown, Chatham, and Short Hills, MCA offers:
  • Full- & Half-Day Preschool Programs,
  • Full-Day Kindergarten,
  • Before & After School Extended Hours,
  • Montessori, My Child, & Me for children 18-30 months with their caregivers,
  • MCA Summer Camp, and
