Classroom Environment

Two AMI (International Montessori Association) certified (3/6 yrs) teachers and an English-speaking assistant supervise your child throughout the day.  During the school year, we also welcome Montessori program students as well as Teachers of Young Children (EJE) students. 

The “At Montessori” school offers an international environment, open to multicultural exchange and diversity.  The child, immersed in a multilingual environment, naturally discovers, absorbs, and becomes familiar with a new language.  The English speaking assistant only addresses the children in English.

The handling and understanding of the Montessori activities on a daily basis and with respect of the child’s rhythm allow the child to develop his concentration and dexterity. Each material is studied to master the fundamentals (math, language, reading…) in a manner that is progressive and lasting. 

The materials are presented individually to each child by the Montessori teachers. The mix of ages encourages emulation between the younger and older students. The first ones learn by observing their elders and the latter become responsible for the good functioning of the class. They are the bearers of the “atmosphere” and show the younger children the rules of life in class.

They accompany them in their activities and deepen their knowledge. This interaction between the different ages creates an atmosphere of caring, mutual aid and responsibility within the group.

 

Schedule

8:30 to 9:00 am – Welcoming of the students

8:30 am to 12:00 pm – Montessori Activities

The teachers present the materials individually to each child throughout the morning.  The children not being instructed work on activities already learned, either alone or in small groups, and with the help of the assistant if needed. 

  • Music: A music workshop instructed by a music teacher takes place once a week for half an hour. All the children in the class are brought together for this workshop.  With a playful approach, the children learn musical concepts such as intensity or diversity of sounds.  They are also allowed to handle different types of instruments.
  • Art Workshop: It is freely accessible all day long. The material is put at the disposal of the child (easel, paper, paint, apron) so that he can be completely autonomous and paint at any time of the day, without the intervention of adults.

11:40 am to 12:00 pm – English

This workshop is taught by the English-speaking assistant.  All the children are assembled for the workshop in English in which they sing or listen to stories in English.
