Follow the child!

As the very first International Montessori Elementary School in Denmark, our goal is to spread the unique methodology of Dr. Maria Montessori and to guide our students to become amazing human beings!

Through the unique teaching approach of Dr. Maria Montessori and a truly passionate staff, we help students to become independent, self thinking, compassionate, loving human beings and develop academically to their highest level.

The goal of International Montessori School Copenhagen is to support the child's development with a view to long-term psychological health and well-being - as well as a high academic level. We want to create independent-thinking individuals who are creative and innovative as well as compassionate and loving beings, and who fulfill their highest academic potential.

It is our belief that this is best achieved by letting the child develop his or her own curiosity and intelligence in a safe environment and at his or her own pace, and explore his or her own inner interests through individualized learning using Montessori teaching materials that are optimized for each child’s learning, where the role of the teacher is to support the child without pressure or control. We follow the child!

"Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him or her learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence."
- Maria Montessori

Age group: 2½ -5 ½

The young child possesses a once-in-a-lifetime, sponge-like capacity to take information from the immediate environment. Dr. Montessori called this phenomenon “the absorbent mind,” and the pedagogy she developed is premised on the understanding that, placed in the right environment, young children will learn spontaneously, without external command or pressure. Our Primary/Preschool is meticulously prepared with educational materials that can be manipulated by the children, encouraging 2½ - 5½-year-olds to discover and learn at their own pace. A Montessori teacher has outstanding observational skills so that each child will be appreciated as an individual and matched to the materials to which they will currently respond with the greatest involvement.

Happy Circle


Age group 5½-9
Age group 9-12+

Our goal is to show your child the universe and help that child find his or her place in it. This Montessori methodology is based on your child’s efforts to learn at his or her own pace and develop intellectual interests in the child's own way. The elementary child has reached the stage of development where they like to know the cause and effect of everything surrounding them. The lower elementary child begins to develop abstract thinking skills and imagination with the guidance of the "Five Great Lessons". Our program continues to feature small group and one-on-one lessons, with a focus on building a community within this group.


Montessori education doesn't adhere to a fixed curriculum in the conventional sense. It's personalized, with learning driven by each child's interests and pace. Following a set syllabus would limit teachers' flexibility to tailor learning experiences to individual needs. 


In contrast to traditional schooling where all students learn the same subject simultaneously, Montessori's approach allows for diverse learning paths.


However, if we define curriculum as a framework of goals and values leading to successful learning experiences, Montessori does follow a curriculum. Teachers have clear objectives, guided by materials and experiences prepared for each child.


While Montessori schools globally share a core curriculum and similar teaching methods, the curriculum is meticulously structured, with materials sequenced hierarchically and interconnected across subjects. This integrated approach fosters curiosity and deep learning experiences.


Montessori teachers are trained in similar methods for presenting materials, often using albums as a resource to guide their goals and objectives for each student. These albums contain presentations tailored to specific age groups.


The Montessori curriculum is comprehensive and interconnected, covering subjects like math, science, history, geography, and language through an integrated approach. 


This approach fosters curiosity and allows students to become thoroughly immersed in a topic, demonstrating the interrelatedness of all things.



Age group 12½-15

If we reach a good number of enrollment in this age group we will open the Adolescent Program in 2025




The main language at school is English.

Children will also receive Danish classes, where they will learn to speak, write and read for a better integration in Danish society.  



Child driven


The kids will be exposed to 9 main areas/topics: Practical life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Geography, and Cultural Studies, Danish Language, Science and Nature, Art, Grace, Courtesy, and Peace.


For children ages 6-12, the elementary curriculum encompasses Language, Math, Geometry, Physical Geography, Cultural Geography, History, Botany, Zoology, Astronomy, Peace Studies, and Danish language. The elementary work frequently involves research, discussion, and large-scale projects. 


The child is truly a miraculous being and this has to be felt deeply by the educator" Maria Montessori

“In the child is much knowledge, much wisdom. If we do not profit from it, it is only because of neglect on our part to become humble and to see the wonder of this soul and learn what the child can teach.”
