Welcome to Little Gems Montessori School

Little Gems Montessori Academy is a Montessori preschool in Somerset, New Jersey, owned and run by certified Montessori teachers. The school provides authentic Montessori care and learning environment for infants through Kindergarten. Our programs aim to meet the needs of children socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically while grounded on the methods and philosophy of Maria Montessori.

In the Little Gems Montessori environment the children are allowed to respond to their natural drive to learn, allowing the teacher to guide each child’s own pace and rhythm and to give them personalized guidance where needed. Each child is respected as a unique personality and as an important, responsible member of a community.

“One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.” ∼Dr Maria Montessori
