“We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child’s spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active…That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori

If you’re trying to make the best option for your child and looking into a Montessori preschool in Leonia NJ you might be curious like a lot of parents what it’s all about. If you have not heard of this kind of school you might be surprised to discover that that it dates back to 1907 with Italian philosopher and educator, in addition to being a humanitarian and physician, Dr. Maria Montessori. Emphasizing self directed learning was a key factor she focused on as part of her method. She additionally stressed the fact that physical activity was useful for more than simply exercise and was key for the child’s education as a whole. Learning abstract concepts is simpler for young students when physical activity is correctly integrated into their day. Another benefit of this method is that they’re capable of learning more practical skills. Environment is also a vital factor to consider when it comes to Montessori education. The fact that the child shouldn’t be forced to adapt to an environment that’s less than ideal for their education is an important aspect of this teaching method. Instead teachers should work hard to supply an environment which will suit the child’s learning and development. Now more popular than ever, Dr. Montessori traveled and instructed others on how to best instruct children this approach, leading to it spreading around the world.

TESTIMONIALS

Mrs. Robins is an outstanding teacher. She has created a structured yet nurturing environment in which young minds can thrive mentally and emotionally. All four of our children graduated from Small World Montessori and we couldn't be happier with the experience. (children attended between 1988 and 2005)

Mehmet and Lisa Oz, Dr. Oz & Family

This school is a very serious place. Your child will be learning how to learn in peaceful, ordered and organized environment. But, it is much more than that. When you visit your child, you will start to feel the school's serenity come over you, and you know this is a rare find in today's turbulent world. That serenity will slowly but surely fill your child's heart. But wait, there's more to it. After a year or two you will realize this place is an extended family.
You will find that teachers and the principal deeply care about your child, as if it were their own child, niece or grandchild. You will know they actually understand your traffic jam, business difficulty, whatever. You will start to feel blessed with your luck to have found it. And, after your child leaves, it will be clear that they had the best possible start. Our two daughters sure did. Thank you Small World!!!

Jelena Musabegovic,

We are extremely pleased with the staff and with the quality of instruction that our daughter has received at Small World Montessori School (SWM) since September 2009.
My husband and I researched many preschools before selecting SWM and have been very satisfied with our decision. As a clinical early childhood social worker, I've worked with the preschool population for the past 10 years and have toured many of the Manhattan preschools with clients looking for quality preschools. This experience assisted my selection process in that I was able to determine how dedicated and knowledgeable the director and the teachers are at SWM.
The teachers at Small World Montessori are warm, caring, devoted, and most importantly very well informed about child development. They comprehend the uniqueness of each child and are very in tuned with the needs of all the children. Our daughter is provided with individual attention when required, but ultimately encouraged to become independent and confident in achieving everyday skills. Since the beginning, our daughter's teacher has been in constant communication with us about progress, concerns, and feedback on how to respond to certain situations.
My daughter is happy, socializes well with her peers, is acquiring pre-academic skills, and is much more confident since she started attending the school. She is learning at an amazing pace and comes home eager to show off what she is learning.
The facility is extremely well kept, clean, and organized which makes it very easy for the children to navigate through the materials and feel organized themselves. We are very grateful and feel very relaxed knowing that our little girl is in very good hands.
We strongly recommend this school to parents who understand that learning is a natural phenomenon that happens when children are provided with the right structure, nurture, oversight and encouragement.

Risory Caraballo, LMSW,

Ms. Robins! Thank you for everything. You are doing such a great job and we are so happy that we found Small World last summer! I cannot express how grateful we are for everything that you do! You are one of the best teachers that I've seen in my life and I am proud to have you as Sophia's first teacher.
The performance today was amazing and it truly was one of the best things that we've seen :-)

Victoria and Michael Drugov,

Going to Ms. Robins' Montessori pre-school gave me an edge on school. I was enrolled there until Kindergarten, then I attended the local public schools thereafter. I could read before my other classmates and conceptualize certain mathematic models more easily. But most of all, I was well behaved - something that my teachers greatly appreciated. I excelled all throughout school with great study habits and accomplished my goals I set out to do. I ended up second in my graduating class and I am now attending the University of Pennsylvania.
If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. Not only did I develop a great basis for understanding how to grasp difficult concepts, but I also learned how to socialize properly too. If you ask me what I got out of my Montessori education: it primed me with an exceptional foundation that affects who I am today.
Oh yeah, and I also found my best friend of 17 years.

Small World was where I had my last tantrum. It's where I learned to function as an only-child and where I evolved into an adolescent and then an adult. Up until that afternoon of my last tantrum, the world was mine. I was a three year old creative spirit run wild.
But on that autumn day, my world changed. Suddenly everything was not about what I wanted when I wanted it. There were other people like my mom and dad who wanted things too. Even my friends wanted things. I may not have wanted to leave school and my friends that particular afternoon but there was limited time to run errands and do grocery shopping.
Ms. Robbins made it clear to me and my mother that my mother's needs should come first. For the first time it was evident that it wasn't all about me and my tyrannical post toddler dictations. There was an entire world functioning separate from myself and it was high time I joined it. 'Be Sensible. Concentrate' were The Small World mantras. To this day I am reminded of those commanding sentences and every day I still apply them to my life.

We are the families of Small World Montessori School’s Class of 2016. Among us, we have 18 Small World students, 7 alumni, 9 in the graduating class, 2 still attending. Why do we send all our children to Small World? Because the school is phenomenal. The teachers are all very experienced and devoted to our children. Open communications with parents are always emphasized and do not stop even if the child has graduated. We have all witnessed the differences in our children as the results from working with the staff.
One parent was once a Small World student herself. “The whole basis of my education lies with her (Mrs. Robins) and the things I learned at this school. Montessori children are not like the rest, we think outside the box, we are problem solvers, we have empathy and we love to learn.” We all agree. And even though academic skills are never emphasized, somehow the children excel academically. Most of them are at first grade level by the end of kindergarten.
The world is a complicated place and our children are at a crossroads. We know under the loving care of Small World, our children developed core values and character that will help them succeed as they venture out into the Big World. What’s more, we take comfort in knowing that our children can always come back to Small World. The school will always be a place that they can call home, a place that they can feel safe. Just ask our older kids.
We are proud, and truly feel blessed that our children belong to the Small World Montessori School’s family.
