Thank you for expressing an interest in my pre-school. You’ll be glad you did! Melanie Bush established the school in the fall of 1982. At that time, it was the first Montessori pre-school in Hunterdon County. Yes, you read it correctly, 30+ years ago! She had a dream and a passion to offer quality education to young children whose parents wanted the best for them, parents who understood the advantage of offering early academics and polite, positive, responsible socialization skills, parents who were discriminating enough to desire the best jumpstart for their child, and who embraced both academics and the true intrinsic value of play and imagination. 

The school evolved into a mother/daughter team. Jessica Koch (Melanie Bush's daughter) now continues the program with the same respect, love, and a genuine caring for the profession that has been a part of Flemington Montessori since its inception. Jessica gets to laugh with, converse, teach and care for “our” school children every day. Children thrive here. They enjoy her company and she enjoys them, as she embraces the responsibility and privilege of guiding “our” children through these important formative years, ages 3 – 5. Don’t delay!

Melanie's daughter, Jessica, (who attended here and graduated from our kindergarten in 1990), is a wonderful Montessori teacher who has been teaching for a long time. Jessica continues to provide quality education to children ages 3 (by October 1st) through 5 years.  The school offers a pre-school and a pre-kindergarten class. One difference between our pre-school and others, is that there are no more than 5 students per session in attendance at the school at any one time. Imagine the benefit to your child to be involved in such an intimate educational environment. Jessica is an AMS Certified Montessori teacher, and has been a part of the school for over 20 years, first as an assistant and then as a fully certified Montessori teacher. Although Melanie retired in the Fall of 2019, she continues to participate as a substitute teacher and consultant.

Come visit, and you’ll discover the difference a small private, family operated school setting can make for you and your child.  Imagine how your child will thrive in such an environment. The school is located in Flemington, New Jersey. We are near routes 202, 31, and 12, which provide easy access for parents.
