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 (and meet all learnings goals of the Ministry of Children and Education).

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



Opening soon
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


Opened in August 2021
Age group: 5½-15

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.



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.

“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.”
