It has been an eventful week for children, their families and staff at Hoboken Apple Montessori School on Sinatra Drive. This past week, we celebrated our 100th day of school since opening the doors of our second Hoboken school on January 4, 2016! The Montessori preschool, which offers before and after school daycare for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners, also introduced an indoor playground which children were so excited to use for the first time yesterday.
Leading up to the 100th day of school, Hoboken preschoolers and their parents submitted 100 thing they love about school. Our very creative staff created an oversized apple to hang in the lobby and handed out “seeds” to collect the 100 sentiments. Children were so proud to see their submissions hanging for all to see, helping them feel even more a part of the Apple family. It warms our hearts because we designed our programs to not only foster a love of learning, but to make sure Apple Montessori feels like a home away from home.
Following our 100th day celebration, even more excitement was in the air as we announced our indoor playground was ready. The children could hardly contain themselves as they explored every inch of the playground as they climbed, slid, jumped and laughed together. Indoor playgrounds offer tons of benefits for little ones like enhancing gross motor skills, analytical thinking, and social skills. No longer will rain or snow interfere with the fun, so there are emotional benefits as well. It is a safe place space designed with young children’s needs in mind. It provides an opportunity to interact with other children, helping develop patience, sharing, cooperation, conflict resolution, communication skills, self-responsibility and more. Children’s confidence improves which nurtures self-expression and imagination.
