We understand that planning your child’s education is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make for their lives. You’re considering a Montessori education and that choice alone will set your child up for success with researched and proven methods to instill a lifelong love for learning. Since 2011, we have been striving to provide the best-in-class early child education for over 1000 children.
At HMS, our authentic approach towards a Montessori early childhood education includes Montessori trained professionals, curriculum, materials and methods. We are the only Hoboken area school recognized by the American Montessori Association and licensed by the New Jersey Department of Families.
Your child will always be in a safe, nurturing and educational environment. We take security very seriously and feature video-monitored classrooms, and bio-metric fingerprint entry.
Your child is a cherished member of our community and welcomed each day for who they are. Children are to be revered as different from adults and as individuals who differ from each other and learn at their own rate. Every child is unique and given one-on-one attention, so they may receive the essential learning skills to reach their fullest potential.
In the calm, ordered space of our Montessori prepared environment, we exercise a positive discipline approach. We speak to your child in a quiet, intentional and kind way with gentle language. Children are peaceful and engaged while in the HMS environment.
Montessori “prepared” environments are designed to facilitate maximum independent learning and exploration by your child. At HMS, each room has been thoughtfully planned for flow and easy access to materials. Through deliberate instruction in organized activities throughout their day, children experience a place especially designed to meet their developmental needs.
HMS directors and teachers have undergone a demanding training course recognized by the American Montessori Society (AMS). They become educated and certified in the Montessori teaching philosophy, Montessori curriculum, and the use of Montessori material.
Each child and their family are an honored member of our community. No one is just a number. We treat our parents as part of the HMS family and foster caring, open communication.
We have very low turnover in our teachers at HMS which means that you and your child will have a consistent, caring team who can anticipate your education needs on a deeper level.
