A bilingual Montessori school in Colombes (92)
Grow in School is an independent alternative school* that offers Montessori education in a 100% bilingual environment.
Opened since 2017, the school welcomes children from 3 to 7 years old with the same commitment: to awaken the abilities and appetites of each child through the multiple activities and educational materials made available. They are guided by professionals trained in early childhood and Montessori pedagogy.
* Alternative education, also called "non-traditional education", refers to all educational approaches that differ from the so-called "traditional" pedagogy. Montessori education is one of them.
Maria Montessori and her Children's House
The method is named after its creator, Maria Montessori (1870-1952). She was the first woman doctor in Italy, and also graduated in philosophy, psychology and biology. In January 1907, she created the first " Children's House " - the " Casa dei Bambini " - in San Lorenzo, a poor industrial district of Rome.
After years of study and observation, Dr. Maria Montessori discovered the different stages of human development and identified the "sensitive phases" of the child. She developed a universal educational method for all children.
Grow at your own pace and develop your self-confidence
The method places the child at the center of learning by allowing him to evolve at his own pace, to develop his self-confidence, with educational material based on work, physical, social and spiritual dimensions.
It is based on the sensory awakening of the child and the development of his spirit of autonomy. Autonomy is achieved through individualized work, using self-teaching materials, which does not exclude the possibility of collective work, with rules of life that make the child responsible.
