The Children’s Academy Montessori school is located in Springfield, NJ. The school was founded in 1979 by Susan Weller. The Academy is a Montessori preschool and kindergarten and is dedicated in providing an excellent Montessori educational experience for children. The Academy Montessori teachers are a highly skilled trained group of professionals who are dedicated for over twenty years in providing the true Montessori approach to learning for young students.

Centered on Maria Montessori’s belief in the individual child and the teacher as the “silent caretaker of the environment,” each student can explore the classroom and advance to any level of learning. From ages 2 ½ through 6 ½, the child is presented with a Montessori approach to practical life, sensorial materials, math work, and the language area as well as world studies and science. French, a special music program, and many other learning opportunities are incorporated into the classroom.

The Academy’s belief in the individual child as a gift to the world helps to enhance our Montessori approach to respect, tolerance and peaceful solutions. The Academy teachers are devoted to awakening the spirit and imagination of the child. It is believed that as a child enters through the doors of The Children's Academy the teachers are dedicated in making sure that experience is a positive one. Nurturing and caring for each child is as an important aspect of our school day. The open door policy allows our parents to stop in and visit whenever they feel the need. This helps to reassure the child as well as the parent.
