Our founder Kimiyo, first discovered the Montessori method when experiencing first hand the challenges of selecting an early education for her daughter. Like many parents, Kimiyo wanted her daughter to learn with joy, to develop an independent mind and to have a holistic, alternative education.
Kimiyo enrolled her daughter in a Montessori school where her daughter thrived and her self-confidence expanded with each passing year. In later years, her daughter reminisced about how this was the happiest period of her schooling. This reflection encouraged Kimiyo to train as a Montessori teacher and learn the marvels of this educational method. After a decade as a Montessori teacher and seeing childrens’ confidence bloom, Kimiyo was ready to open Little Birds!
Kimiyo and her team of AMI certified Montessori teachers are always delighted to meet with parents and to explain the Montessori Method and Philosophy. Our shared mission is to accompany every child in their exploration of the carefully prepared classroom environment.
What We Believe
Montessori Little Birds school’s guiding mission is to ensure our pupils thrive.
Won over by Maria Montessori’s philosophy and fully trained in her methods, this school was created for the joy of accompanying our little birds in their exploration of the world. We are here to stimulate and to protect each child’s intelligence, according to their individual needs..
We believe the Montessori method is the perfect approach to a solid education for life, driven by each child’s innate enthusiasm to learn. We will nurture that enthusiasm which will help them in the future to participate meaningfully and skillfully in this ever-changing world.
Our Core Values
Little Birds’ core values are grounded in the Montessori philosophy:
Such words may be abstract for children, but for us they are guiding principles which we apply to all our actions and relationships within the school
