One Montessori educator graduates of the AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) and two assistants, one of whom is an English-Speaking assistant, supervise the children throughout the day.
In the course of the school year we welcome trainee Montessori educators as well as trainee early childhood educators.
Each child learns how to become autonomous and to respect the rules of living in a community.
On a daily basis and in the respect of each child’s rhythm, handling and understanding the different materials allows the children to both improve their concentration and work on dexterity.
The “at Montessori” school offers an international environment open to multicultural exchanges and diversity.
The children are immersed in a bilingual classroom where they discover, absorb and become naturally familiar with a new language.
8:30/9:00 am: Reception of the children
To allow the class to function correctly, we kindly ask you to respect these times.
8:30/11:30 am: Montessori activity time
The Montessori educator presents the activities individually to each child throughout the morning. In this way he adapts to the rhythm of each child and provides them with individualised monitoring.
While the educator presents an activity to a child the others can work on their own or in small groups with the help of the assistants.
- Musical awakening: The musical awakening workshop run by our music teacher, takes place once a week for half an hour. All the children in the class participate in this class together. Using a fun approach, the children learn basic music concepts such as intensity or the diversity of sounds. They are also able to handle different types of instruments.
- Art workshop: This workshop is accessible all day. Everything is at the children’s disposition (easel, paper, paint, apron) so they can be totally independent. Children can paint at any time during the day without the need for intervention from the educators.
11:30 am/12:00 pm: Lunch
Lunch is served in the classroom. A hot meal is delivered by the caterer “Ekilibre” which proposes balanced, varied and often organic menus. In case of food allergy (for which a medical certificate is required), children may bring a packed lunch.
12:00 pm: Departure of the children enrolled part-time.
12:00/2:00 pm: Rest time
Preparation for nap time for children enrolled for the full day. Each child has his or her own mattress. We kindly request that you bring in a blanket at the start of the school year.
2:00/2:30 pm: Staggered wake-up
All the children wake up at their own rhythm and get ready for the outing to the garden.
2:30/3:30 pm: Outing to the Jardin Catherine Labouré (29 rue de Babylone)
All the children at the school in rue de Babylone, the youngest as well as the older ones, go to the garden.
3:30/4:00 pm: Group time with a story before home time
4:00 pm: Departure of the children
4:15/5:00 pm: Evening workshops
Workshops (yoga, musical introduction, cookery) are on offer every evening after school. We welcome a 10 children per workshop including just 3 from the Young Child Community. The children enrolled in the evening workshops have a snack between 4:00 and 4:15 pm “for further information”.
The calendar for school holidays is the issued by the French National Education department except for the summer holidays which start on the last Friday of June after the school day.
Exchanges with the parents
An individual meeting takes place in the month of November. Another meeting is proposed at the end of the school year for the children who have been re-enrolled for the following school year. Other meetings can take place in the course of the year by request of either the parents or the educators.
