Welcome to Deer Path Montessori!
“To consider the school as a place where instruction is given is one point of view. But to consider the school as a preparation for life is another.”
- Dr. Maria Montessori
Deer Path Montessori School offers toddler, preschool, and kindergarten programs for children ages 2 1/2 through 6 years old in Hackettstown, Mt. Olive (Budd Lake and Flanders), Long Valley and the surrounding areas. We have both 10-month and summer offerings.
Families looking for more than just a preschool or just a child care center look to Deer Path Montessori School. Our programs have both core classes and extended day options to help meet the needs of your family’s busy schedule. At the same time, our Montessori philosophy allows us to nurture each child’s individual potential like nothing else can. Creativity, academics, independence, social skills, and peaceful problem solving skills all flourish together here. A peek into our classrooms reveals contented children engaged in constructive endeavors which are developmentally appropriate.
Our mission is to create peaceful Montessori classrooms which unlock each child’s unique potential, while nurturing respect and fostering a love of learning.
