FREE SPIRIT MONTESSORI STORY
Established in early 2020, we are a new sister location to Free Spirit Montessori located in Upper Beaches. With everything happening this year so far, we are happy to provide a safe, clean, and fun environment for your children to grow and thrive in. More than ever, we recognize the importance of building a strong foundation in the newest generation, with a well-rounded education including mindfulness, diversity, and healthy living. We hope to instill values of peace, love, and acceptance in a stimulating educational manner while encouraging each child to embrace their unique individualities.
We provide our students with the tools they need for future happiness and success. Our unique programs incorporate a variety of educational theories, while always keeping the child’s best interests in mind and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning. Get in touch to learn more!

My name is Farima Sajadi and I am a Certified Montessori Casa teacher and founder of Free Spirit Montessori for 11 years (Early Childhood Education).
I am also the mother of two girls. My first daughter is Keyanna and she is a Registered Psychotherapist and also works as behavior Instructor with children with autism. My Second Daughter is Aryanna and she is finishing her College. They are both great help at our Day nursery.
Free Spirit Montessori started as a Home Childcare Montessori Classroom in 2013 for 4 years in the downtown area and we worked with many parents and children. In 2018 we have merged Free Spirit Montessori with Better Beginnings Nursery School in Upper Beaches. I have been teaching and managing the school for almost 4 years. I always love to live in downtown and understand the parents who live with their children in the area. Now I have the opportunity of opening a new Free Spirit Montessori(Licensed Child Care) close to my original location and I am happy that I can help the parents in this area again and love to educate the little ones.
Prior to being a Montessori Teacher, I worked for 17 years with Financial Institutions as an Investment Advisor.
Some people asked me before why I have changed my career so drastically, but to me, these two career paths are very similar, both are educating families and caring for one of the most important aspects of human life.
As a mother, I completely understand how important it is to be comfortable with where your children spends their valuable time, so we welcome you to call or email us to set up a virtual or in person tour and you can see our beautiful and cozy classroom set up.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Both of my boys have been students of Farima's over the years. She is not only a talented educator, but a kind and thoughtful human being. Her classroom was fun and exciting, and covered a variety of new and interesting lessons with a particular focus on mathematics and manipulatives - which I was always very pleased about. She brings a lifetime of real world experience to her lessons and does an excellent job of teaching kids the skills that they need to be successful in life. She loves kids and gets to know them well as little people - and my two have always cherished their relationship with her. I have recommended her classroom to many parents and everyone has been so thrilled with the outcome.
Speech Language Pathologist
"Farima is truly a gifted teacher. Her techniques and teaching method are highly effective and seem to be catered to each child’s style of learning and their specific needs. She was able to teach my two year old things that I would expect her to learn at five years old! Farima’s education also goes beyond teaching academics. She is able to instill life skills in her students, such as staying on task, manners, and managing emotions. I’m anxious for my second child to be old enough to start learning with her!"
Executive Chef - Nutrition Director
"Farima is a warm and loving teacher. She provides structure and encouragement which has helped my daughter exceed our expectations in the areas of self-regulation and motor skill development. My husband and I have found Farima to be the best teacher that we could have hoped for and feel very fortunate to have found her."
“It is the Spirit of the child that can determine the course of human progress and lead it perhaps even to a higher form of civilization.”
