Parent Testimonials

As summer approaches and the school year is coming to a close I am excited to see my now 5 year old daughter graduate and move on to Kindergarten but I am sad to be leaving the amazing teachers and friends we have become so close with at PBJC this year. We were new to PBJC for the 2022-2023 year, as my daughter did a private Nursery School Pod for Pre-K 2-3 but we were welcomed into the school and community as if we were family. I was worried my daughter would feel “different” because we are not Jewish, but instead she has made lifelong friends and received an amazing education. I have no worries she will succeed academically in Kindergarten, as she has already mastered many of the lessons taught in that grade thanks to the loving and supportive teachers at PBJC. On days I had to work early or stay late my daughter was excited to go to the Giggle Zone pre/after school enrichment program. My only regret is that the year has flown by too fast. If you are looking for a preschool that knows how to balance excellent academics in a caring atmosphere that promotes social and emotional growth, PBJC is beyond compare.

I wouldn’t trade my years at PBJC Preschool for anything. It is a wonderful, warm place that helped my children develop into who they are.
~Julie C., Pine Brook

I love the PBJC Preschool! When we moved to Montville, the teachers, parents and students welcomed us with open arms. My daughter is so comfortable there and has all the support she could ask for. My son can’t wait for his turn to attend school next year!

We love PBJC Preschool! My children grew (and are growing) from babies to independent big girls while being loved, nurtured and educated here every day. They wake up so excited to go to school and I know it’s because of the caring and fun staff at PBJC.
~Jessica E., Montville


My daughter’s teachers are so warm and nurturing – perfect for the 2’s.  I couldn’t be happier.
~Kim S., Pine Brook


We have been so grateful for the Preschool at PBJC every day that we’ve been involved.  The staff is filled with warm, supportive educators and our children have learned so much thanks to their dedication in providing creative, fun and academically enriching lessons.  No place we’d rather be!
~Staci and Adam H., Montville


We absolutely love PBJC Preschool. It provides a warm, nurturing environment with competent and loving teachers. My daughter is so excited going to school everyday and I know she is well taken care of. PBJC Preschool has become part of our extended family.
~Vickie V., Montville

PBJC gives the saying, “It takes a big heart to help shape little minds,” true meaning! We live in another community and are blessed to have come into contact with this warm, nurturing home away from home. As an educator myself, it is quite evident that the teachers and staff are professional, caring, and go above and beyond to make each child feel loved. We look forward to all that PBJC has to offer in the years to come.

The teachers are so warm and friendly, with smiles on their faces when they get my son in the morning and in school during the day.
~Randi F., Montville


Cognitively, my son is absorbing so much information from the lessons at school, as well as through interactions with his classmates.
~Karen K., Pine Brook


My son is being challenged and I am very impressed with his recognition of numbers and letters . . . socially, my son is thriving and I couldn’t be happier! That is one of the major reasons that we wanted him at PBJC Preschool and I am so thrilled with the experience he is having.
~Emily T., Boonton


Our children always ran into school and could not wait to see their teachers and friends. When it was time to pick them up, they did not want to leave. PBJC was an amazing place for our children to learn and grow.
~Jill and David F., Pine Brook
