I am a current and alumni parent of Westmont who was admittedly clueless about the difference of a Montessori education when evaluating schools for my children. Westmont educated me while educating my children and now I am an advocate for life. My children, now 7 and 3 have experienced countless benefits from the Westmont environment and I feel so strongly about the community, teachers, administration and leadership that I was driven to action to post my very first YELP review to say as much.Westmont has each and every student's best interest at heart and I have seen that demonstrated over the course of my last 3+ years affiliated with the school. The academics and social/emotional curriculum is second to none. The community we entered has provided lasting friendships for my children and my spouse and I that have become our foundational friends in this community of Chester/Mendham that was new to us. You will not regret giving your children the opportunity to thrive at Westmont. Please reach out with any questions because as a business person I value a balanced and objective perspective but I also have very high standards so when a business exceeds those standards, especially when my children are the benefactors, I had to post a review!

My son attended Westmont for his kindergarten year and we LOVED it! -The academic program is fantastic. -The teachers are experienced, qualified, and loving. -The school offers music, movement, Spanish, art, extended day, and after school clubs like tumbling and drama. -The administration and staff members are all warm and welcoming. -The campus and classrooms are beautiful. -The children and other parents are friendly. I would highly recommend Westmont!
