As a mother I had a desire to give my own children a Montessori Education, an education in a specially prepared environment, in a place which was respectful and stimulating. However, an education like this was difficult to find.
Due to this lack of choice, my first educational project was founded, “La Casita Montessori Almería”. A Montessori Education specifically for children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old.
“La Casita Montessori Almería” was the first Montessori project to open in Almeria in September 2015. This small school was staffed with guides trained by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).
We gained a lot of support from parents for this project. In fact it was so successful, that with a lot of passion and effort, we decided to create a larger project. Thus, in September 2016, in response to parents’ requests to continue their children’s Montessori education into the Primary stage, “Montessori School Almería” opened its doors as a British School.
Montessori School Almeria is a project where education respects children as individuals, in which they can grow at their own pace and be stimulated. A school where craving for knowledge and experimentation is not restricted. It is a place for growth.
Montessori School Almería is a small school, high quality, with limited places, where we can guarantee an individualised education and seek to address the needs of each and every child. We work with an approximate ratio of 20 children to 2 educators. English is the main language.
