Welcome to Our Truly Unique Learning Environment
For the first-time observer, a classroom at Mastro Montessori Academy offers a unique and fascinating learning environment. Located in Shrewsbury, NJ, near the border of Red Bank, Mastro Montessori Academy offers a relaxed preschool and elementary school environment near the Jersey Shore.
Our toddler, preschool and elementary school children move freely from work area to work area, selecting materials and taking them to a table or a mat on the floor to work. Each child works on an activity for as long as it holds his or her interest. The child then returns everything to its proper place – all without disturbing classmates who are busy doing the same, working independently and learning through exploration.
All of our early childhood education classrooms consist of multi-age groups led by Montessori trained teachers who provide a child-directed hands-on learning environment that complements a child’s innate inquisitive nature and allows them to grow as independent, self-directed learners.
Sound like a dream? Not at all. It is the proven Montessori philosophy in action. Come see for yourself the beauty of the children who are given the opportunity to explore interests at their own pace in our scientifically-prepared environment. You will see the talent, intelligence, maturity, and creativity of our students.
The philosophy behind The Montessori Method is to respect each child’s individuality and to provide a learning environment that encourages and nurtures his or her natural abilities. At Mastro Montessori, your child will have the support and resources to thrive.
