About Us

Montessori School of East Rutherford provides young children with a creative, nurturing, and peaceful educational environment, encouraging individuality. We strive to build a foundation of strong academic skills and foster a love of learning.
The program enrolls children of ages 1-6 years, in groups Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K, Kindergarten.
Founded in 1986, we have been recognized by the community for our excellence in learning and quality care. Our school is licensed and approved by the State of New Jersey Department of Education, and the Division of Youth and Family Services. Classrooms are well equipped with Montessori materials, puzzles, activities, computers, listening centers, a library, and a gross motor play area.
We offer small groups and excellent child-to-teacher ratios. Staff consists of caring and knowledgeable teachers and assistants. The teachers are Montessori- and State-certified, and the assistants are Montessori trained. The staff is licensed in CPR and first aid. There is a large, outdoor park with a fenced playground, which is well equipped.
Programs include weekly music and dance classes, taught by professional teachers. Annual spring dance recitals and graduation ceremonies give children an opportunity for on-stage performances. Field trips, both in school and out of school, enhance the learning process. Parents are always encouraged to participate.
Parents are provided with progress reports during the school year, and Toddlers receive a daily report. Parent-teacher conferences are encouraged. The school is open year-round from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, with minimal holidays and closings.
