Montessori House is a bilingual school covering English and French. The child/teacher ratio is approximately 8:1. The work place is not over-crowded or distracting, with attention being paid to the development of aesthetic awareness. The children are given choices and freedom within boundaries, where they are allowed to choose age-appropriate materials and activities that interest them, under the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher. This enables them to progress academically at their own pace. We recognise that each child is unique and we seek to accommodate their learning styles.
The classrooms are beautiful by design and are set up in an open style, with work areas throughout the room and materials available on accessible shelving.
We use recognised Montessori materials, charts, timelines, objects of nature, treasures from the wealth of cultures around the worlds and sometimes conventional tools to teach. The school is committed to diversity and believes in sharing what we have with those in need and encouraging children to learn to live responsibly in the world. At Montessori House Belgium children are inspired to live both passionately and compassionately in a global community.
