Montessori Method of Education
Maria Montessori’s educational viewpoint is a substantial feature of our school concept. The Montessori principle “Teach me to do it myself” supports pupils in their use of active learning skills. We view this principle as the foundation for a successful education.

Multisensory learning
Depending of the type of learner and their pedagogical diagnostic, we offer individual support for each pupil.

We aim to optimise the individual learning processes of every pupil. The Montessori room enables us to do this by offering pupils a space for self-organised learning.

In this specialised environment, pupils use comprehensive materials, which encourage them to take action. They include the areas of mathematical thinking, linguistic development, activities relevant to practical life and training the senses whilst integrating their creative and artistic development.
The material takes the particular developmental stage of each pupil into account: every child can continue where they left off.

In doing so, our pupils develop their own learning strategies and solutions. As a result, they continually and systematically build on their learning progress.

Our teaching staff guide pupils as they develop and teach them how to work autonomously, with as much help and freedom as necessary! The teacher intervenes when pupils are lacking motivation or becoming distracted, thus ensuring that each child can learn undisturbed.
