The children remain at our kindergarden from about three years old until they go to the primary school. The group is mixed-age.
During the time of the "montessori free work" in the morning, the children explore the Montessori materials or participate in other activities such as painting, crafting and many more... Each child can evolve on their own rythm and own needs in a very well structured environment. We sing songs every day with the children and recite poems. It’s then snack time and we eat together.
A group lesson finishes off the morning, which might be an introduction to a Montessori material, a circle game, a story, gymnastic exercises or current topics related to festivals, seasons or questions of the children. After the closing song, the children either go get dressed or stay for lunch.
