Welcome to Rutherford Montessori School

Rutherford Montessori School (RMS) is an early childhood center nurturing and teaching children from infancy to Kindergarten.  Our facility is a bright, warm, and inviting environment filled with art, music, and books.  The class areas are filled with intriguing learning materials, mathematical models, maps, charts, and computers.  RMS has an open environment that is organized into several curriculum areas including:  language arts (reading, literature, grammar, creative writing, spelling and handwriting), mathematics and geometry, everyday living skills, sensory awareness, puzzles, geography, history, science, art, music, and movement.  Each section is made up of shelf units and display tables with a wide variety of materials on open display, ready for use as the children select them. 

RMS students study a curriculum that includes both Montessori and traditional methods.  This hybrid teaching style prepares students to continue learning in various environments after graduation.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to foster a love of learning among all students and to encourage collaboration rather than competition.  We strive to create an environment that fosters independence, values diversity, and teaches our students to be honest, responsible, kind, and respectful.
