Integrated in the daily life of the child, the pedagogy reveals each individual’s needs. In simple terms, a school where the child is of utmost importance, with the goal of assisting him/her in his/her personal enrichment.
The Versailles Montessori school is located in a 225 square meter building, that is completely furnished, with a 100 square meter court. Gradually, we are setting up an urban vegetable garden using permaculture. These projects are also part of our environmental awareness program as an eco-responsible school.

WHAT IS THE MONTESSORI TEACHING METHOD?
Montessori pedagogy is above all a philosophy, a way of perceiving the child. Indeed, we consider it as an actor of its own construction.
The objective is then to allow the development and expression of one’s potential, thanks to an adequate environment and respect for one’s personality.
Thus, the essence of Montessori education is based on the development of each child in all its dimensions: physical, social, intellectual and emotional.
Not having the same needs at the same time, our schools allow him to be the master of his own development through selected experiences.
For an educational program to be considered “Montessori”, it must meet several criteria. First, at a minimum, multi-age groups are needed to promote peer learning. Then long and uninterrupted cycles of working time are needed to allow the child to achieve concentration. It is supervised by professionals, called educators or assistants, that the child can be accompanied in his/her awakening and learning.
Finally, he/she has access, when he/she wishes, to a complete set of equipment specifically designed and meticulously arranged in a pleasant environment. These four characteristics are recognized as the pillars of Montessori education by the Association Montessori France. Created in 1950, the AMF is affiliated with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) created by Maria Montessori in 1929.
NEWS ON OUR MONTESSORI SCHOOL
As of today, scientific research confirms that students who have access to personalized learning methods give their best. Montessori, Waldorf-Steiner and Freinet understood this and
“Our main concern must be to educate humanity or rather human beings of all countries to guide them and help them pursue common goals. We need to roll up our sleeves and make the child our main concern. The efforts of science must be focused on him/her, for him/her is the source and the key to the riddles of mankind. “
Dr. Maria Montessori, from Education and Peace
