The Cherry Blossom Montessori School was founded as a Montessori school in 1967 in the South Branch section of Hillsborough, New Jersey. It is one of the oldest Montessori schools in New Jersey and one of the older ones in the United States. The original name was The Carroll School.
In 1969, the school changed ownership from a private individual to a parent cooperative and was renamed Raritan Valley Montessori School. In June of 1984, the school was sold to Leslie S. Meldrum, once again becoming a private corporation. In August of 1994, the school moved to Flagtown.
In September of 2003, we added our Stepping Stones program for children aged 16 months to 3 years and changed our name to The Cherry Blossom Montessori School. We started our Lower Elementary Program in 2005 and our Upper Elementary Program in 2010.
Cherry Blossom Montessori is affiliated with Raritan Valley Montessori Academy located in Bridgewater, New Jersey.
