"L'enfant n'est pas un vase que l'on remplit mais une source que l'on laisse jaillir." Maria Montessori
AN EDUCATION BASED ON THE STAGES OF CHILD
The Montessori Bilingual School of Uzès was founded in 2015 with the aim of supporting and nurturing each child in a caring environment. It is a school made up of 2 different classes: one class for children from 3 to 6 years old and one class for children from 6 to 12 years old.
Mixed aged groups
The school program is customized to each child, allowing children to work at their own pace while participating in a mixed age community. Younger children learn by observing the behavior and activities of older children while the older children gain confidence, leadership skills and responsibility as they set an example for their younger peers.
The child, the center of our attention
The educators are trained by the Maria Montessori Institute, an AMI (Association Montessori International) accredited center. Educators are trained to closely observe the interests and needs of your child. You will not see the educator standing in front of the class at the blackboard, but rather at your child's level, engaged with him or her or a small group.

TAKE THE TIME TO OBSERVE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION,TO LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN
Repetition to perfection
Your child will be introduced to a wide range of concepts and activities through individual and small group lessons. The learning occurs, however, through independent activity where the child chooses to explore, repeat and perfect their chosen task.
Beautiful objects to aid in learning
Thoughtfully designed Montessori materials help your child learn through hands-on use and exploration. Through continued use, these objects provide understanding of abstract concepts such as mathematics; providing a solid foundation for future learning.
"The child is not a vase that we fill but a spring that we leave spring."
We believe that nature plays an integral part in childhood, aiding with an overall sense of balance. We are fortunate to be surrounded by the garrigue and enjoy the outdoors all year round. The children are protectors of nature and take care of the living (our chickens and our vegetable garden).
