Founded in 2013, Liberty Montessori: The Place for Learning provides exceptional care for children six weeks to six years old in Jersey City, New Jersey. We offer developmentally appropriate learning opportunities in each of our classrooms along with extended hours and both full and half-day schedules.

Why Choose Us?

You may call us The Place for Learning, or Liberty Montessori. But regardless, if you are looking for excellence in childcare and early childhood education, we are the place to be!

We Believe

At Liberty Montessori: The Place for Learning, we are serious about nurturing education, and we believe that every child deserves a safe and loving environment in which they can thrive and learn. We also believe:

Trust is of vital importance to any relationship.
Childcare must be responsive to each unique child.
Routine care and education are essential.
Childcare should be affordable but not at the expense of excellence or service.

What Is Montessori?

The idea for Montessori education came from the work of Dr. Maria Montessori who discovered that experiential learning led children to a deeper understanding of academic concepts.

Montessori is based on the belief that age-appropriate, self-directed activities; hands-on learning; and collaborative play instills a love of learning within children and prepare them for life success. In Montessori classrooms, children learn by doing.

At Liberty Montessori: The Place for Learning, your child will experience:

  • Developmentally appropriate learning activities in literacy, numeracy, science, and music
  • A safe and encouraging learning environment
  • Hands-on, exploratory curriculum
  • Fun centers and thematic workshops
  • Certified and experienced teachers
