ABOUT MONTESSORI INTERNATIONAL PRESCHOOL
Montessori International Preschool (Valby) was initiated to meet the growing demand for preschools in English in the capital region. There is a constantly rising number of preschool age children living in greater Copenhagen and the waiting lists at local and international preschools are constantly getting longer and longer. Montessori International Preschool entered the market at an ideal time in August 2011, when the local municipalities were looking for and encouraging private initiatives to start-up new childcare options in the city.
Montessori International Preschool Frederiksberg opened its doors in October 2014 to continue serving the local families who are seeking education in English, within the Montessori philosophy, a world renowned educational method.
