Accredited Montessori education in an international community
At Montessori Corner, our mission is to provide excellence in Montessori preschool, elementary school, after school programs and summer camp for families living in the greater Princeton, New Jersey area. Here you’ll find exceptional teahcers, curriculum and learning environments that encourage children to learn, play and explore in a safe, nurturing environment.
Our emphasis on academics encourages young children to relate to the world around them and develop a love of learning. Children receive individualized and group instruction in an atmosphere of cooperation and non-competitiveness. We provide a variety of manipulatives to develop gross and fine motor skills. Our program closely follows the principles of Dr. Montessori, keeping in mind that her original idea was that school is an extension of the home in preparation of life.
Elementary Montessori classes continue to bring children of different age levels together allowing them to progress at their own pace. Students explore the realms of mathematics, science and technology, great literature, history, economics, anthropology, and the basic organization of human societies. Our well-rounded curriculum includes art, French, music and physical education. Students leave our school as caring and confident achievers, well prepared for continued growth in the classroom, and beyond.
