This school only opened in 2006 and has 2 classes, 2-4 and 4-6. The owner has another school in Braine. There must be no more than 50 children in the whole school, although the classes are big´like International Montessori, its because there are 2 teachers for each class, one English and one French, I´m sure they must sometimes take advantage by separating the children into 2 groups. The school is just off Montgomery roundabout in Woluwe Saint Pierre, great location as its only 2 metro stops to Berlaymont. The 2 to 4s can go part time. Children mainly from expat backgrounds, varying languages. Fees from 6K to 10K.

To whom it may concern,
My name is Marta Lora and I am a member of the Erasmus+ Commission of my school. And I am writing to you because I have seen that your school is involved in implementing innovative teaching approaches and methodologies.

Our school is trying to include this kind of syllabus in order to improve the teaching quality and to be up-to-date according to the students' needs we work with nowadays. So we strongly believe that the Montessori approach is a powerful way to start covering those needs.

All the staff are open-minded and are aware of the importance of going abroad to get a wider knowledge of the current education methods in other countries. They are also hard-working and they are fully implicated to get the best of every student. That is why we would like to let you know that we are interested in doing a job shadowing in your referenced school.

To inform you, if we had your approval of welcoming one teacher for five days, we could go there with an European Commission grant. This way it would be easier for both of us to establish a partnership so as to exchange some experiences and ideas to improve the current education in Europe.

Our school is located in Écija, a historic town close to Seville (Spain) and every teacher is implementing in their classrooms some interesting teaching-learning methods such as Flipped Classroom, Colaborative Learning, Project-Based learning and so forth. And the new project we would like to be involved in, as I mentioned before, is the inclusion of innovative techniques of teaching.

I would really appreciate your answer as soon as possible because before the 5th of February we must present the project to the European Commission.

I strongly believe it could be an enriching experience for both schools.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,
Marta Lora

It is a true Montessori school, a splendid and nurturing place for any child. My son was so happy to go there everyday, and so were all the children during dropoffs. Children learn so much through meaningful play guided by amazing teachers that foster respect and kindness. Marcel, the director of the school and his team of Montessori trained teachers do a wonderful job on a daily basis without cutting corners, they have indeed set the bar really high.

Each of the 3 classes has 19-20 children between the ages 3-6. Each class has both an English and a French Montessori trained teacher, and a Montessori assistant, so that each child gets plenty of individualized attention.

Children spend their time in gorgeous and serene Montessori classrooms, and everyday they use the large, beautiful garden. Each week children have science, piano, yoga and gym and take a trip to a sports center for weekly swimming lessons.
The other parents unanimously say how hard it is to find a subsequent school that matches this dedication and quality of education. I also wholeheartedly recommend this school!
