Welcome to Montessori International Preschool
Montessori International Preschool is an environmentally-friendly preschool based on the Montessori educational approach.
We are committed to the principles of Maria Montessori and to providing a safe, secure and happy environment for your children.
Our dedicated staff provides activities that will encourage your child to investigate and explore, to gain confidence, independence and language development.
Some of our key features for the preschool are as follows:
For children from 2 years 10 months to 6 years old. The structure is based on the multi-age principle that children of different ages share the same classroom and work at their own pace. At the end of preschool, they will be able to integrate any school system, whether it is in Denmark or abroad.
It is a comprehensive educational approach based on the observation of children’s needs. Montessori assures that there is maximum independent learning and exploration by the child. Under the guidance of a trained teacher, children learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning. This builds self-confidence, inner discipline, a sense of self-worth and instils positive social behaviour.
Our preschools offer tuition in English. We sometimes sing songs in Danish and we also celebrate birthdays by singing the birthday song in as many languages as we know (depending on the nationalities of the children who are attending the preschool). On average we have between 12 and 20 languages spoken by both children and staff. This exposes the children to different languages from a young age which will allow them to develop their communication skills as well as their acceptance and curiosity for people from different backgrounds.
The preschool emphasizes recycling and efficient use of energy supplies. The practice of automatic recycling of materials and reduced waste is essential for the overall organisation.
International / Multi-Cultural
Children and staff are from many different backgrounds and cover a wide diversity of cultures, religions and nationalities. The children learn about celebrations and customs from different countries, especially the ones represented by the children’s families and the staff. On average, we have 25 different nationalities represented at each preschool.
We help children learn moral and personal qualities with regards to their being, their body, their senses, their intellect, their emotions, their imagination, their intuitions and their spirit. The children learn about freedom, responsibility, practicability, rationality and creativity, challenge and realization, self-reliance and interdependence.
