Enrollment to start Fall 2011…

1/10/2011:

Did you know Hoboken has a new school opening up this year in the Garden Street Lofts building?

Hoboken Montessori School (“HMS”) is a parent founded independent early childhood school designed to nurture a child’s inherent love of learning. Guided by Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy, our program provides intellectual, artistic, and developmental life experiences taught by teachers who have been specially trained and Montessori certified. Our classrooms are designed specifically for Montessori education and provide a child-focused setting conducive to the education of young children.

The school provides two programs; a Toddler Program for children between the ages of 2 and 3, and a Primary Program for children ages 3 to 6. Each classroom comprises six interrelated areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Geography/Culture and Science/Nature. In addition, a full range of experiences including music, foreign language, art, and movement complement the program.

Hoboken Montessori School Core Values

  • Each child is unique and learns at his/her own pace.
  • Each child is treated with respect and courtesy.
  • Each child is empowered to make choices.
  • A parent is a child’s first teacher.
  • The learning environment should reflect the world of the child.
  • Respect for self, each other, the community, and the environment.

“It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give to each child the chance to fulfill his potential to become an independent, secure, balanced person.”

– Dr. Maria Montessori

Hoboken Montessori School Program Goals

The goals of the program are to:

  • Cultivate a child’s innate desire to learn through individualized and group instruction.
  • Encourage a child to be a self-starter and thereby build a child’s self-esteem.
  • Stimulate a child’s imagination and creativity through arts, language, music and science.
  • Develop a child’s problem solving skills through targeted activities that emphasize order, concentration, and coordination.
  • Promote positive relationships through respect and cooperation.

    Went there out of curiosity for our 18 month year old on Saturday and although we learned some interesting take a ways about child development we threw the orientation folder in the trash on our way out.

    Almost cult like and an unnatural approach to learning. Not much more money than your typical day care in Hoboken however I want my child to enjoy childhood and not get quizzed on Chopin when they are 3 years old. Breeding ground for over achievers, failures, and unhappy kids. Hated the entire thought process of it all.

      Hmmm. That sucks. I’ve toured a number of Montessori schools and never had that impression. Plus, the idea of “quizzing” young children on anything is absolutely antithetical to true Montessori. Hope you were given a misimpression because I always thought it was a shame that Hoboken didn’t have a Montessori option. If you are right, then it’s a shame that it isn’t true Montessori. That said, Hoboken is in desperate need for more preschools, especially with Abbott ending, so hopefully it is the right fit for some families.[quote comment=”205934″]Went there out of curiosity for our 18 month year old on Saturday and although we learned some interesting take a ways about child development we threw the orientation folder in the trash on our way out.Almost cult like and an unnatural approach to learning.

    Wife visited. Loved the space, but not the price. Would be very eager to put Little-Me in the space, but not at the price. Maybe we can meet in the middle?

    There’s a montessori school up in Edgewater that is reportedly very good – and very reasonable. On par with the most reasonable places in Hoboken in terms of price. My kids are doing great where they are (and I’m not paying through the nose for it), so that’s where they’ll stay. Getting to Edgewater in the AM seems tricky.
