About Us

Montessori Family School was founded by director and administrator Lydia Cruz, first opening its doors in 1994 in Manalapan, New Jersey. We quickly became a trusted source of education for children in the community and our modest classroom began to grow, allowing us to expand our services and move locations from a rented space into our first building in 2000.

Montessori Family School continued to flourish throughout the years and, in 2006, we moved to our third and current location in Millstone Township, New Jersey, with our new location allowing room for up to 120 students.

With over forty years of experience as a Montessori teacher, director Lydia Cruz' dedication to the Montessori method has benefited countless families in Monmouth County. Please schedule a visit to tour our facilities. Schedule Visit
