|About our Montessori Kindergarten
For more than fifteen years now, we run a preschool for children from the age of three to six years. Our classrooms are designed to the children's size, interests and capabilities. The school has several nice classrooms, two kitchens, two bathrooms and a large terrace. We are only a few minutes away from the playground.
In our friendly and lively environment each child feels welcome and well received. Our prepared environment is fascinating to the child because it's aesthetic, logical and understandable.
The Montessori Method
Maria Montessori began her career as a doctor. She was an anthropologist and later on she developed the Montessori Method of education. Being a scientist, Dr. Montessori observed the "Phenomenon of spontaneous work" generated by using the Montessori Materials.
The prepared environment with it's materials and activities invites the children to independently and freely choose their work. It's the educator's task to introduce the Montessori Materials to the children. There is little to be taught on the part of the teacher, yet there is unlimited scope for exploration on the part of the children.
The main goal of the Montessori Pedagogy is to help each child to reach his or her full potential in all areas of life, to build self-esteem, self-confidence and a happy, healthy, strong self-image.
