Pedagogy



The Maison Bleue welcomes children from 3 to 6 years of age. It proposes a bilingual programme in French and English. Children learn to socialise and are stimulated by various educational activities. Our main concern is to propose a rich environment which will allow them to find all their needs for their own development and help reveal their personality. The Maison Bleue will strive to evaluate the possibility of integrating children with special needs.

« What we understand by education is allowing the child to develop. »
Maria Montessori

The environment is prepared with care and offers a vast range of activities. The Montessori pedagogy includes a complete set of materials for each class. The materials must be used in the free choice by the child.

The knowledge and attitude of a Montessori teacher:

> To know how to observe
> To Trust the children;
> To respect the sensitive periods;
> To follow the personal progress of the child;
> Not to be interfering
> To meet the positive;
> To be rigorous, but not rigid.
