The Montessori House is also licensed by the State of New Jersey as a stand-alone Child Care Center.

Our Numbers

The following chart provides some useful statistics about The Montessori House. Please note the following: 

  • For many of our Pre-Primary students, local public schools will only guarantee a spot in a neighborhood school for children who start in kindergarten , accounting for the relatively lower rate of children moving from Pre-Primary to Kindergarten.

  • The percentage returning reflects children not returning for all reasons, including relocation out of the area.
  • Student:Teacher Ratio does not include student teachers in the calculation.
