The French American Academy, Jersey City, NJ

 

An Interview with Jean-François, Center Director, The French American Academy, Jersey City, NJ

The French American Academy, Jersey City, NJ is located in downtown Jersey City and walking distance from Grove Street Path Station. The French American Academy opened in the former St Mary High School. Their charming 3-story building, offers 30 classrooms with bright light, warm colors and ample space. We were warmly greeted by their faculty and students. A special thank you to their center director, Jean-François, for giving us his time.

When did The French American Academy of Jersey City open it’s doors:

This school is part of a group of schools called the French American Academy founded 10 years ago. The French American Academy first opened three Pre-K classes in September 2007 in Dumont, NJ. The school has grown ever since.

We moved to a bigger campus in New Milford in Bergen County in July 2010 and shortly after  opened a second campus in Morris Plains in Morris County in September 2010. The Jersey City campus opened its doors in 2012.

Private school in jersey city

What kind of curriculum do you follow & how is it different from other schools in the area:

The French American Academy of Jersey City is a private bilingual school. We offer an early-start, gradual immersion, dual language (French and English) education to students from Pre-K2 through 4th grade. From Sep 2017, we are expanding to 5th grade.

In Sep 2018 we will open the Middle school in Jersey City with 6th, 7th and 8th grades with French, American & Spanish tracks. We will be accepting students from various international backgrounds and communities.


There is more emphasis on the French language in the early years (Pre-K-Kindergarten) to set up the foundations. From 1st grade, instruction in English gradually increases and by 5th grade children are spending about 60% in French and 40% in English.

Bilingualism is at the core of our curriculum and in some classes like in science, students are taught in both languages with both an American and a French teacher present in the classrooms. It’s a demanding bilingual curriculum with an emphasis on projects and investigation. In our community, we welcome children from families whether these families speak French at home, or English or another language.

Our school is accredited by both, Middle School Association on College and Schools, and the National French Ministry of Education, and is a member of New Jersey Association of Independent School.

Kiddie Academy of Hamilton Park

 

 

 

 

When did Kiddie Academy of Hamilton Park open its doors:

Our Hamilton Park location opened in July of 2016.  It has been a wonderful experience for us so far! The community has been so warm and welcoming. We love seeing our neighbors, and try to participate in as many community events as possible. It’s great to see our families out at the community events too. The majority of our families live right here in Hamilton Park! In NJ we have 4 sister sites including us; Hoboken, Hamilton Park, Florham Park and Secaucus. All of our centers are committed to providing exceptional experiences for our students and their families.

Our curriculum called is called Life Essentials and is based on the 4 Pillars of Learning. Those pillars are: Technology, Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum, Character Education and Health & Fitness. The curriculum is written and developed at our corporate headquarters in Maryland and is overseen by our Curriculum Advisory Board. Board members, Dr.Rivkin, Dr. Wheeler, Dr. Rogowsky and Dr. Watson-Thompson work collaboratively to evaluate and refresh our curriculum. Refreshed curriculums are piloted for a year at a corporately owned school prior to being rolled out to our centers. This ensures that it is as finely tuned as possible by the time it comes to us.

Each teacher is able to enhance the curriculum to meet the needs and interests of their current students. Having this flexibility enables us to provide an experience that is tailored to our current student body.  Additionally, children from 6 weeks – 2 years of age receive an individualized lesson plan that is unique to them. To ensure that we are continuing to develop plans that meet our students needs and support their learning, our faculty complete developmental checklists and compile student portfolios for each child.

All about The Brunswick School in Jersey City, NJ

Quick Points: 

  • The Brunswick School in Jersey City is conveniently located in downtown JC, 2 blocks from Hamilton Park.
  • Huge parking lot for parents.
  • Citibike stand just opposite to the school.

An Interview with Jillian Hernandez; Founder of the new and growing Brunswick School

How did the Brunswick School come about? What inspired you?

We opened a year and a half ago in July of 2015. Obviously I have a passion for children in early education but my background is in Human Resources so I wanted to start a business that could make a difference in the community. I spend most of my time interacting with the teachers and making sure they are happy. If teachers are happy, children are happy and as a result parents are happy. The teachers here have a true passion for what they do…I wish I could spend more time in the classroom…but the highlight of my day is when one of the teachers brings a couple of kids in here and shows me what they’ve done.

I also recognized that there was a huge demand in this area for quality education. There are so many young families here now in Jersey City. At the time when we started building the school there were not many options…now fortunately there are a lot more options for the community which is great, as it will bring more people to Jersey City.

What is the teacher/child ratio in your school:

Under 18 mths: 1:4, 18mths – 2.5: 1:6, 2.5 & older: 1:10

But we always have extra hands and staff too.

How many classrooms do u have in the school:

We have 11 classrooms and in the process of opening up an additional classroom and indoor playroom coming very soon. This used to be a catholic grammar school, so its nice that we can continue to expand into additional spaces that already exist within the building.

Our program starts at 6 months up to Kindergarten. We have two baby rooms, three young toddler rooms, four older toddler rooms, One Pre-K room and One Kindergarten room.

Do you provide an option for catered lunch:

Yes! Our chef is fantastic. She provides breakfast, lunch and snacks to the children. It’s all organic and super healthy (it’s busy bee organics). It’s included in the tuition.

We also teach the children about what they are eating and why.

Pre-K school in jersey city

 

 

 


Do you have early drop off and after care options available:

We are open from 7 am – 7pm which is nice and convenient for parents that work and have to commute. Our core day starts at 8.30 am and ends at 4.30pm, but before that and after is before care and after care.

What kind of curriculum do you follow:

Our director Erin and I built the curriculum. We researched various different curriculums that are out there and created our own. We didn’t want to subscribe to one but take the best of all.

A lot of it is based on Arts & Crafts, Music, Movement but heavy on Academics (Math, Reading, Writing, Science, History) through utilizing different creative outlets. That’s our whole premise here..teaching the children to enjoy the process of learning. For the little ones it’s more about the socialization and maintaining a structure, trying to maintain the routine the parents have at home, here in the school.

private school in jersey city

 

 

 

 

What extracurricular activities do you offer:

The kids get Zumba and Yoga and the older kids have Science Enrichment once a week and Spanish a few times a week. We also have Rockasorri coming in once a week for Music. We also have an outdoor play area and we take them out twice a day.

Do you offer Summer Camp programs:

Yes, we do have a summer program. Most of the spots go to siblings that aren’t in the school. Our summer camp is separate from regular school. We have a separate classroom for summer and it’s more fun based with field trips, visits at Hudson Play etc. And the kids are older. Enrollment for camp is open and we ask for a two week minimum.

How do you foster Diversity?

We celebrate every holiday and ask parents to come in and celebrate with us. Our teachers are from different nationalities and backgrounds and they also help us carry things out like that.

In your opinion, what sets your school apart from others?

-We have the best teachers, they are just amazing human beings that care with great educational backgrounds and are certified.

-Our Food! These kids eat better than most of Jersey City! Super healthy and organic.The chef makes sure they are getting a balanced diet between what they like, fruits and vegetables. We also take care of dietary restrictions.

Hamilton Park Montessori School educates children from infancy through eighth grade, following the vision of Maria Montessori, who was thrice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy of children and her work toward world peace. Built on Montessori’s values and her scientific observation of the nature of learning, HPMS’ curriculum lays a sound foundation in mathematics, language, geography, science and social science, creative arts, physical movement, sensory learning and practical living. As Montessorians, we believe this strong foundation is the key to academic success, personal growth and global awareness.

HUDSON MONTESSORI SCHOOL

http://hudsonmontessori.net/

10 Regent Street,

Jersey City, New Jersey 07302

(201) 516-0700

At Hudson Montessori School we work with, and show our students how to “make”, and provide them with possibilities and materials. We also have an assembly each week that offers them a forum for presenting their ideas and showing their peers and teachers what they have created. This is an essential step for the students to reflect on their work and receive valuable feedback for them to consider in their next project.

Every year, the entire school engages in a yearlong project that is theme based on a universal topic. Each theme we pick allows us to look at the world from a new perspective and from different angles. Every area of the curriculum is integrated in hands-on applications, such as combining math, science and language skills to figure out and document a solution to a problem.

Our definition of STEAM is not doing projects, or addressing each area of study in isolation, but through exploration of a topic where we integrate skills from every core area of the curriculum and use the scientific method. Using their skills in this way, students are able to reach a successful conclusion by combining their knowledge and experiences to learn and solve problems.

BELOVED COMMUNITY CHARTER SCHOOL

Extraordinarily high satisfaction levels were expressed by BelovED’s students, by their parents/guardians, and by the school’s teachers in year-end, online surveys that granted respondents complete anonymity.  High satisfaction is further reflected in BelovED’s exceedingly high student and faculty retention rate.

At BelovED Community Charter School, we are committed to your child, and we accept responsibility – “no excuses” – for helping your child develop the kind of values, skills, knowledge, confidence and character that will propel him or her to success in school, college, and career, and produce a happy, contributory life.

A key feature of the school is its caring school climate – a climate that makes students feel cared about and results in their caring about others, also. Children learn more when they love school – and children most often love school when they feel welcomed and cared for at school.

We combine our commitment to your child and our caring school climate with an education program that features a proven curriculum and instructional methodology.

For over 40 years, Apple Montessori Schools have set exceptional standards for early childhood and elementary education. Nurturing the unique potential of each child is the core of all we do.

Family owned Apple Montessori Schools has fostered the unique potential of tens of thousands of children since 1972. By embracing the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, we instill a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect, and compassion for others through our research-proven programs. Our method is designed to build upon your child’s innate skills, knowledge and talents. By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in his or her own learning process – at his or her own pace.

Children aged birth to six years old learn more – and more rapidly – than at any other time in their lives. Finding the right program is one of the most important decision you’ll ever make as a parent.
