Montessori pedagogy

Our method, that is founded by Maria Montessori, is a child-centered pedagogical approach. This is based on the scholary observation of the children. The pedagogy is succesfully practised all over the world, in the different cultures around us. Montessori (1870 – 1952) was the first woman doctor in Italy. After some further education, she opened the first Casa dei Bambini for 3-6-year-old children. Based on the observation and the experience, she worked out her own pedagogical method.

The principles of the Montessori pedagogy

The speciality of this pedagogy is mainly the materials that we use during the days. In any other traditional or alternative pedagogy is cannot be found.

English language development

Our institution was the first onein Hungary, who started to alloy the Hungarian and the English language with the Montessori pedagogy. The past 18 years prove that if the children hear both of the languages during the day in the kindergarten, it promotes the conformity, problem-solving ability and the natural interests about the foreign language.

In our groups, we operate with the two-teacher model, that means both the Hungarian and the English teachers are present.
