Our first transition days are behind us and with those our new school year has formally started.
We would like to welcome back all of our returning children and families and extend a warm welcome to all of our new children and families. September is always a time of excitement, yet with that comes anxiety and nervousness for many children. We will do our best to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible and to ensure that each child feels loved, respected and safe.
A Montessori learning environment is like no other. Our main objective at The Montessori School of Mallorca is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment that marries a top Montessori education with the best of the British curriculum. Through these, we will establish the intellectual, emotional, and physical foundation that will develop the skills for your child to become a self-directed learner, flexible thinker, creative problem solver, and support their ever-increasing curiosity about the world in which they live.
Respect and courtesy in our Montessori school is the foundation for everything we do and each child will soon learn and/or strengthen the following important skills:
- how to be independent
- the importance of helping a friend in need
- how to be intellectually challenged
- the importance of respecting the materials, the teachers and each other
- how to put their work away where they found it
how to tidy up after themselves how to tuck in their chair when they leave the table
- how to behave in the classroom
- how to be self-directed and find their own ‘work’
Each child will feel empowered at The Montessori School of Mallorca and learn how great it feels to do things on their own! Each teacher is here to nurture, support and guide them each and every day and are committed to making your child’s Montessori school experience productive, stimulating and fun!
We are honoured that you have chosen our school and we are confident that this will be a wonderful year for everyone involved!
Last but not least, I would like you to take a minute to check our website and get familiar with our wonderful team, those that will take care and nurture your child during their Montessori journey. This year we have two new additions, Anna Kunze, an Erasmus student from Germany who will be supporting the Lower Primary classroom until the end of February and Melissa Meidel, who will act as an assistant Upper Primary.
