Apple Montessori Schools Mahwah is located nearby major highways, and is one block from the Mahwah train station. The school is housed in a charming, historic building with many modern conveniences. The school features spacious classrooms with natural light, napping rooms to promote healthy sleep habits, and a gymnasium. The outdoor space contains four age-appropriate playgrounds, two uniquely designed swimming pools, outdoor sports court, and a shaded picnic area.

All three of my children have been enrolled at (A)pple as an infant through kindergarten. I've been very impressed with their experienced staff, curriculum, and programming. We had transitioned from another day care previously and I definitely have a comparison point to say it's above the line in excellence. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an infant to kindergarten experience.
