“Educational Initiative” is a nonprofit organisation, founded in 2006 by a small group of parents.
These parents had a dream for their children – to create a school based on the Montessori approach to education, where each child would be able to develop freely, following the natural laws of development – a school where their children would grow day by day in independence, in self-confidence, in respect for themselves, their community and their environment.
However, it was not only the parents who had this dream. Together with the parents there was a committed team of trained teachers who created beautiful educational environments, based on the knowledge they had regarding the developmental needs and interests of the very young child.
The school was created in 2006. The Montessori House of Alimos began as a pre-school centre and nursery school and served the community of Alimos, in the southern suburbs of Athens for 12 years. In 2017 it took up temporary residence in Glyfada and in September 2021, it will make one final move to its permanent premises, in Glyfada. The Montessori House of Glyfada will provide day-care facilities, for infants and young children from 5 months to 6 years of age as well as after school activities for older children.
