Hoboken Montessori School

Not a day goes by that I am not thankful for HMS. What an outstanding community, what a caring environment, what dedicated educators. The experience has been so positive for both me and my child. We're so lucky that this superb Montessori experience is available to Hoboken families.

When construction started on HMS in January of 2011 my daughter walked by daily peering in the windows to see the progress. She started in the primary classroom as a 3 year old and we couldn't be happier. HMS couldn't be a more perfect fit. A shy, reserved girl HMS provided an environment that increased Catherine's confidence and allowed her to shine. Handwriting, geometry, math,science, reading are but a few of the skills she has learned since starting. The teachers focus on the individual developing a plan for each child. Social development is also nurtured encouraging kindness and a strong sense of individual responsibility. Catherine, now 4 wakes up ready and excited for school every day and comes homes with a smile on her face. We are so grateful for HMS. .

As soon as my husband and I moved to Hoboken in 2010, the first thing we did was to look for schools for our then 1.5-year old daughter. We were thrilled to learn about the Montessori School that was planned to open for the school year in 2011. It worked out perfectly since our daughter would have turned 2 years old by then. Location is great since its in Hoboken North (most schools are near Hoboken South), which is only an 8 minute walk from our building. My husband and I were especially impressed with the caliber of teachers. In addition to being Montessori-certified, staffs' education level further differentiates Hoboken Montessori from some other preschools in the area. At the same time, everyone at the school including the Founder, Director and all the teachers are professional and nurturing. Our daughter had a wonderful experience in the Toddler class and has now successfully transitioned into the Primary class. She has become more independent and responsible. She surprises us each day with something new she has figured out at school! The great thing about Montessori is that it enables the kids to investigate, explore and figure out the process by themselves. Thanks so much for creating this wonderful environment!

We saw a transformation in William during his first month of attending HMS last year. We were amazed, at 3 years old, how focused he was on becoming self-sufficient with everyday life tasks. HMS awakened a curiosity in Will to learn about geography, nature and skills based on math and language. He is so clearly happy and has developed many relationships with friends and faculty, thanks HMS!

Our daughter started Kindergarten at HMS this year. She transitioned very easily, thanks to warm and nurturing environment that the school provides. We are very impressed with the quality of Montessori curriculum at HMS. Dedication and diligence of HMS teachers is outstanding.

It's always stressful sending a child to school for the first time. That's why I was so delighted and relieved after my son's first week at HMS that every time he passed by HMS he would exclaim proudly "that's my school!" You know your child is being inspired to learn in the classroom when they proudly tell you on Friday night how excited they are to have a new lesson the following Monday. Thanks HMS!

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
