Parent-Infant Class (from 2 to 14 months)

If your baby reached 2 months, we are happy to welcome him in our Parent-Infant class, accompanied by an adult. Baby’s stay in class is accompanied by a wisely-prepared environment, filled with materials that correspond age demands. We are mindful that work is aimed to support growing confidence of a child and his need in getting important stimuli for the development of movement skills and speech. Guided by a Montessori teacher, an adult and a child are involved into set of activities that correspond the aims of certain stage of baby’s development. We follow the child, respect unique features and offer the environment in which a child may learn and discover the world around him. An adult and a child come 1, 2 or 3 times a week and follow schedule, convenient for both. Each group counts up to 6 families, guided by AMI teacher.

Classes include information sessions that aim to help parents understand basic principles of the Montessori method. They as well include discussions on how to organize home environment and peculiarities of development at different stages. The Guide is always here to support parents in questions that may arise.

Parent-Infant Class is a place for children aged 2 to 16 months. When a child is 14 months old he is ready to meet Toddler class. It is where his full potential is uncovered and he is ready to confidently step into the world and meet other children.

Toddler Community (with 14 months to 3 years)

Toddler Class is aimed to help in development of children aged 14 months to 3 years. At this age children are in need of order, they possess huge desire to actively decide what to do themselves. Considering this, the classroom provides opportunities to work in safe and psychologically comfortable environment. Furniture and materials are chosen to suit best to act independently. The Guide is only there to help.

It is where you see children obsessed with any possible tasks. They learn to water plants, wash the dishes, polish wood and cook. Each of these tasks gives a child opportunities to improve and perfect the moves, learn to concentrate and develop confidence.

Children learn to interact. They listen to music, dance and create together. Special attention is paid to language development through active language enrichment.

By the time a child reaches 3 years, he is confident enough to take care of himself, to use toilet, to help others and take care of environment around.

Toddler Class is run by a qualified Montessori teacher and 2 assistants. That is a bilingual Russian-English class. Toddler Community counts 12 children. They come 5 times a week and, depending on age and emotional state, may wish to follow the basic programme, or a prolonged one.  

Casa dei Bambini (with 3 to 6 years)

Casa dei Bambini, or Children House, as Maria Montessori wrote, is a programme for children aged 3 to 6. It follows the previous step to succeed in confident development. In this class children are offered various activities that are aimed to support and stimulate confidence along with self-development and development of environment around.

Every morning children are involved to work in multi-aged community. Older children become guides. They act as leaders, share experience and knowledge, help others and develop confidence.

New comers observe older children, absorb behavior models and learn to be responsible.

Relationship in a community is based on mutual care and looks very much alike home environment.

Each child with his own plan of development follows his individual rhythm, free to choose the materials he is interested in, or a partner to work with, and can rely on adult's help anytime.

The Teacher won’t give knowledge. Children are to discover themselves. He is here to guide and help. Children are taught lessons and master their skills in various areas: exercises of practical life, sensorial presentations, Math lessons and language development lessons; they meet different cultures, music, art, have practice in grace and courtesy. As soon as they have been given the materials, they are eager to choose work they enjoy. They may practice taking care of themselves, or of the class they live in, work on spellings, or tales. One finds pleasure in working with others and adding big numbers, other prefer baking. Montessori materials that were professionally presented, with interest and passion, and may be chosen by each and anytime, build the basis for reading, writing, art skills, critical thinking and active participation in society. After three years in Casa dei Bambini children become balanced, have self-esteem, and become leaders for younger. They learn to critically think, study with pleasure, they know how to control emotions for community’s sake.

School Community

We cooperate with parents to provide best conditions for our children. It is essential to harmonize relationship and have balance between home and school. Relationship based on collaboration and support.

We offer Family Programmes. They aim to help parents to create and support home environment that echoes Montessori environment at school. Also, we offer consultations on home environment, informational seminars and Parent Meetings, practical master classes to give parents essential knowledge and support them in building relationship based on harmony. Celebration and special events, charity bazaars, whole-school picnic, Earth Day are some of our traditional events that help us preserve and develop friendly community of children, parents and teachers.
