JERSEY CITY, N.J., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Commemorating its 3rd Anniversary in Port Liberte (Jersey City, NJ), The Place for Learning expands by opening Jersey City's newest AMS Certified Montessori School this September 2016. With amazing views of New York City, Liberty Montessori is now enrolling a small class of 17 children, 3-6 years of age.
It was the vision of the owner, Ivonne Barreras to open a Montessori school. Through all of her doctoral research, she realized the Montessori Method of Education represents a complex interconnection of elements that all work together to assist children in becoming self-motivated, independent, compassionate, responsible, critical-thinking individuals. Of this methodology, Ms. Barreras says, "This scientifically validated approach enables children to become caring, compassionate, self-directed, and lifelong learners who will thoughtfully contribute to our global community." Ms. Erica Blanco, a well-known, certified Montessori teacher, will be leading the Primary Classroom for three to six year olds. She says, "In the Montessori Method, the child is observed on an academic, social, emotional, and physical level and we, as teachers, look at the child as a whole, making sure the child is progressing on multiple levels."
Currently, the school has well-regarded Nursery and Toddler programs. In addition to serving Port Liberte's residents, The Place for Learning serves families who commute from parts of downtown Jersey City, Bayonne and Denville, NJ. By opening Liberty Montessori - its first Montessori primary classroom—parents will be able to keep their children in a safe, nurturing, educational environment from the ages of 6 weeks to 6 years!
The school provides families with full access to closed circuit cameras, and is conveniently located to a free park and ride to New York via NY Waterway or the Grove Street Shuttle. Presently, the school administration and teachers are busy creating an organized, prepared environment so each child will have the tools to succeed.
In addition, for families who need before and after school programs, The Place for Learning's Liberty Montessori program will offer workshops in Music, Language (Mandarin), Chess, and Programming.
Come visit the school and become a part of its growing family by attending an open house on either Mondays or Wednesdays. To schedule an appointment, call 201-985-8745. The school is offering introductory rates for families who enroll before July 31, 2016.
