Papillon Montessori School ® One Carletondale Road, RINGWOOD, NJ 07456

“My reasons for choosing Papillon were multifactorial. I began my preschool search by looking for a Montessori program. I wished to find a program that would allow Gavin to expand his already large vocabulary while having the freedom of movement his naturally energetic body needed. I interviewed the two other schools in my area and once I came to Papillon I knew this was the place for my precious babies. The physical environment is impressive- spotless, soothing, bright. I enjoyed the interaction between staff and students. There was a level of mutual respect that I had not seen in other places. At Papillon the hierarchy of teacher to student is removed. The interaction is more family like and team work is paramount.” Kelly Donaldson
“I really want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Papillon has given me the comfort of knowing that my daughter is well taken care of everyday and in an environment that I completely love and trust. You have given Lyla the foundation that she will use for the rest of her school days. We love you and Papillon. Lyla surprises me every day with something new that she has learned, such as singing “It’s a Grand Old Flag” in the bathtub the other night! I can’t say enough to show you how grateful we are to have had all of you in our lives. Again, thank you for loving, educating and nurturing Lyla at a time that is so important. We will miss you greatly!” Carly K
“We chose Papillon from the age of 3 through Kindergarten for both of our children. After the initial interview, I knew this was the right first school experience for us. The key points for me were the Montessori Method, Patricia and her dedication to the children, Erica and her great teaching abilities and unique ability to bond and communicate with children and the wonderful facilities. As a family, we feel that Papillon gave our kids a great first step in their educations and socialization skills. Our kids learned a respect for the Papillon community, school friends, staff and themselves. At Papillon, our kids had a great introduction to learning. We hold Papillon out to new families in Ringwood and our community as a great pre-school and day care facility.”

Dear Papillon School, 
“My child is a walking genius – I am sure Papillon had a lot of influence on that! I cannot express how proud we are to have been part of this organization. I wish you can put wheels on your school and bring it back and forth Ringwood to Morristown! We are thankful for the experience our daughter had while attending The Papillon Montessori School. A+ and PROUD!”

'Both of our daughters attended Papillon and we were very impressed with the quality of the care and instruction. The staff is so friendly and caring and the children get the individualized attention they need. The occasional outings provide a nice change of pace as well and the kids absolutely love them. We would wholeheartedly recommend. Laurie and Mike E - Ringwood.
