Our environment

“The child should live in an environment of beauty.”

Maria Montessori

A school in a windmill

The Montessori School of Mallorca is placed in an old windmill on an estate of 3,000 square meters on the outskirts of Santa Maria del Cami, a town of 6,000 inhabitants in the centre of the island. Our mill, ‘El Molí de Son Gulla,’ was built over 400 years ago and is full of history. Find out more about the  history of the windmill.

Close to nature

The Montessori School of Mallorca is located in a residential area bordering agricultural farms, so kids can enjoy a healthy and rural environment. It is a place very close to nature, where our kids can feed their curiosity about the world around them. Our extensive outdoor area offers a variety of plants and trees, including lemon, orange, pomegranate, plum, and olive trees. There is plenty of space for children to play, discover, experiment, and learn!

Large and open classrooms

The classrooms are located in the main house and separate classrooms, which are situated in the garden of the estate. Our classrooms are large, open-feeling spaces, with low shelves, different sizes of tables that comfortably seat one to four children, and chairs that are appropriately sized for the children in the classroom.

Safe parking area

To make sure that you can drop off and pick up your children in a stress-free and safe manner, the school provides a large parking area with direct and safe access to the premises.

Easy access

Santa Maria is located in the centre of the island and has excellent connections from the capital, Palma, and other places by road and train. Our school is easily accessible from highway Ma-13, which connects Palma with Inca, and is two minutes walking distance from the train station.
