School Description


Ridgewood Montessori School was founded in 1989 by Evelyn Moshier. She saw the need to create a partnership with children where children are respected in a safe nurturing environment. She also was very aware of Dr. Montessori's teachings and how a teacher's primary role was to prepare and maintain an environment where children would love to learn.


Evelyn takes great pride in providing a comprehensive curriculum that instills a sense of wonder about the universe and the child's place within it. She is also very proud of the multicultural staff that makes up our faculty. Our staff is highly qualified, well-trained and dedicated to teaching the whole child in a loving, caring and enriched environment. The diversity of each one of us and the contributions we make allow children to reach their full potential.


Today, Kathryn Imbrogno continues Evelyn's passion, love, desire and dedication as Director of Ridgewood Montessori School.


Our school is comprised of a Stepping Stones Program for children who are 2 years 6 months of age to 3 years, 3 months of age, and seven Primary Classrooms for children between the ages of 3 years through Kindergarten. We currently serve families from Ridgewood, Glen Rock, Paramus, Midland Park, Wyckoff, Ramsey, Upper Saddle River, Saddle River, Ho Ho Kus and Westwood, as well as Maywood and Hackensack.


Ridgewood Montessori School is a community of children, parents and staff united by open communication, respect, trust and support. 

We are thrilled to announce that we will be relocating to Paramus, NJ in June, where we will combine our state of the art programs with a new state of the art building.

  • This school parking lot is dangerous. The school is having a hard time controlling the flow of traffic with the parents that rush in and out of the school. Their were a few close calls of kids and parents about to get runned over!!! RMS does not report all accident reports which is a concern. Your personal family contact information is shared with the entire school which is unsafe. Most of the teachers are not engaging only the Director of teaching does their job well. The owner is very rude and show favoritsim to certain parents and student and make it very very obvious. This school has shown Disney movies in the classroom without asking parents permission. The classroom bathrooms are not clean, the teachers do not use seat covers or clean the toilets in between each student using the bathroom which is a health problem. The main telephone nuumber goes to voicemail 60% of the time and the returned call is always delayed or never happens. This school moved to a new building in Paramus, NJ, but need some major improvements on their daily operations. Parents Be AWARE, their are better Montessori schools in the area do your homework and sit a couple days to get to know the school operation it makes a difference.
