MISSION

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

PRESCHOOL

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

LOWER AND UPPER ELEMENTARY

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.

MIDDLE SCHOOL

If we reach a good number of enrollment in this age group we will open the Adolescent Program in 2022, otherwise in 2023

SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM 
2023/2024

Age Group: 6-9

We will accommodate children with special needs in a very small setting where they will get the right support for them to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. We will introduce elements of Montessori and other approaches which will be tailored to each child's needs. This program will serve as an "incubator" to prepare the children to be able to attend the neurotypical classes later during the year. The aim is that all the children, no matter their level of challenges will be included in the academic community of their age group.

VI TALER OGSÅ DANSK !

6-9+ årige

Den internationale Montessoriskole har undervisning både på engelsk og dansk – og et nært fællesskab mellem danske og internationale elever. Montessoripædagogik egner sig til både "late bloomers" og højt begavede børn, da den er tilpasset det enkelte barn og tilbyder individualiserede udfordringer uden pres. Unikke undervisningsmaterialer gør det muligt for børn at vælge det, de interesserer sig for, og at udforske nye emner. Materialerne appellerer til børns nysgerrighed, stimulerer deres indlæring og kreativitet, og gør det muligt for børnene at udfolde deres særlige intelligens. Læringen foregår i et trygt miljø og i eget tempo i et klasselokale kendetegnet ved ro og koncentration, hvilket understøtter indlæring og beror på et fællesskab, der fungerer for alle børnene.
Vi følger barnet!
