About > Health, Safety and Security

A safe place for your child to thrive

At Apple Montessori, we are committed to providing a high-quality education for your child and a healthy, safe and secure environment for our entire community.

Safety is our priority

The most important aspect of our whole-child approach is making sure every child in our care is safe, secure, and supported. We work to follow and exceed the health, safety, and security guidelines outlined by the New Jersey School Safety and Security Best Practices Guidelines, Centers for Disease Control and our federal, state, and local officials.
