Where Children Come First

Your Local Montessori School

At Rainbow Montessori, we deliver superb, year-round education to students from six weeks old through 6th grade. As a Montessori school with campuses in Clifton and Bloomfield, NJ, we offer a holistic, child-centered approach to education. We encourage children to learn and develop at their own pace with individualized and engaging programs.

A Nurturing Environment to Learn & Grow

Since 1982, we have served our community with unique, personalized educational programming led by experienced and dedicated teachers and staff. We never waiver in our commitment to our students. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we never closed. We became an emergency childcare center and continued to offer educational programs virtually as well.

From infant and toddler care, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary programs to before and after school care and summer camp, we are open all year round to meet your child’s needs.

Our Mission Statement

At Rainbow Montessori, we are committed to providing high-quality childcare and education, which is individualized to meet the needs of each child enrolled in our program. In our endeavors, we must perform our duties with the utmost professionalism, being mindful of our responsibility to our students and their families, as well as those of our fellow staff members and administration. Our philosophy is dedicated to the care, well-being, and education of the children enrolled in the best traditions of the Montessori Method.

The goal of our school is to provide an affordable, high-quality option for at-home and working parents. We aim to fulfill the needs of the child, as well as the childcare needs of the parent, in a fun, stimulating, and positive educational environment. At Rainbow Montessori, the children come first. All of our goals were developed with this in mind.

Healing the Children

The team here at Rainbow Montessori has supported the Healing the Children organization for over 25 years.

Healing the Children is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1981. The organization assists children in the United States and other countries with medical needs.  The inbound program brings the children into the United States, without their parents, to receive medical treatment and care.  The type of care that they need ranges from serious life-saving surgeries such as heart and neurosurgery to non-life-threatening conditions like receiving prosthesis or eye surgery.  All of the treatment given is life-changing. While the child is here they stay with a host family and that family is responsible for their daily care, getting them to appointments, seeing them through surgery and recovery, and sending them home. However, while they are here they are provided with a second family. Our very own director’s/trustees Jackie and Jane have hosted children through this program over the years. Whether they are hosting a child themselves or not, they offer free childcare to the families hosting these children. Healing the Children has overall been a great experience for both our staff, as well as students.
