Choosing a right preschool and kindergarten for your child is not easy. Sixteen years ago we went through that process for our daughter. We want to find a school with teachers that love and respect their students, with an environment that encourages children to learn but also accommodates each child’s own learning style, with a teaching philosophy that will bring out the child’s individuality and creativity. We certainly set a pretty high standard but we were so lucky that we found Nicholas Montessori School in Martinsville, NJ. The school was all we could ask for. Emily, our daughter, was in the preschool and stayed there for kindergarten too. She had wonderful time there and was well prepared for her transition to primary school. With the foundation laid by Nicholas Montessori School, she cruised through primary, middle and high schools and landed in Princeton University. We truly believe sending Emily to Nicholas Montessori School was one of the best things we ever did to her. Thank you, Mrs. Siva and Nicholas Montessori School!
