In search of a quality education program for their daughters 45 years ago, Rex and Jane Bailey believed they could do better than most of the options that were available. As a result, these educators and caring parents opened the first Apple Montessori School in 1972 with the goal in mind to provide an exceptional education and experience that nurtures the “whole child.”

Today, after four and a half decades of earning the trust of local families, Apple Montessori has grown to include 15 schools and close to 500 staff members across New Jersey. Together, they are celebrating Apple Montessori’s 45th anniversary of educating students.

What sets Apple Montessori apart is its Montessori Plus curriculum, which offers learning experiences that encourage academic, emotional, social, physical, and ethical development. The “whole child” approach aims to help children reach their fullest potential inside and beyond the classroom.

Apple Montessori celebrated its anniversary in September by hosting two family events. Apple Montessori held its Apple Family Fall Festival Friday, Sept. 22, which was filled with pumpkin painting, apple treats, bubble-machine fun, face painting, a raffle, and more. The festival also gave families a chance to see their children perform in the classroom.

The following weekend, on Sept. 30, Apple Montessori hosted Family Yoga on the Waterfront near its Hoboken location. This event was an excellent way to bring the community together and celebrate 45 years of quality education.

Apple Montessori would not have been able to sustain 45 years of success if it weren’t for the involvement and commitment of its students and their families. Apple Montessori wants to thank all involved for being a part of its 45th year.

About Apple Montessori Schools:
Family owned Apple Montessori Schools have inspired a love of learning for over 45 years. Our infant, toddler, preschool/kindergarten, and elementary programs are not only child-inspired, they are research-proven. The core of what we do is nurturing the whole child – intellectually, socially, emotionally, and beyond. By recognizing that no two children are the same, our approach cultivates the unique potential of each and every child in a caring, safe, and supportive school environment. Our team of educators, many of whom have been with Apple 5, 10, 20 and even 30 years, make the most of children’s critical early learning years. Our fifteen schools are located in north and central New Jersey. Learn more by visiting http://www.applemontessorischools.com.
