The Montessori House of Glyfada
Welcome to our website. We would like to present you with some of the principles and values which guide our work and which enable us to serve the children, the parents and the families of our school community, with love and dedication.
Here, you will see pictures of the classrooms and our school garden. The architects of the building, with whom we had a very happy collaboration over several years, have also written a piece about the school they built with such attention to detail.
Who we are
Every school has its story and here, in this section, we tell you our story! You will also meet all the people in our team and read something that each one of them has written. You will find all the information you need in order to contact us.
The Montessori approach
Here you will find answers to some of your questions. Who was Dr. Maria Montessori? Why did she believe that we should always give “the best to the smallest”? We provide a brief insight into the philosophy which lies at the heart of everything we do at The Montessori House, Glyfada.
The first three years of life
Strong foundations are laid early in life, from the moment of birth when mother and baby bond. Here, you will read how a little toddler can spend his/her day in the Nest or the Infant Community, which are environments specially prepared to meet the needs of the very young child and to encourage creative independent activity.
They sing, read, play, sweep, polish, write, count and cook – the children do everything! Here, we explain in detail, the many and varied activities we offer in the Children’s House, so that you can have a good idea of how children spend their day with us.
The joy of food! Here you will read how our kitchen is also a hub of activity for the children encouraging them to participate in the general preparation of meals.
Children in our school are very close to nature. Our garden does not only offer possibilities for playing games, but also endless opportunities to tend, to observe and to learn from it. See what your children can do outdoors, for we offer many possibilities for work and for pleasure!
Many opportunities for activities and group sessions! Click here to see the afternoon programme that the Montessori House of Glyfada is offering to our graduates and their friends. Choose the programme your child would like to follow.
