“We must prepare the whole environment, including all material objects, to a degree that the child can perform every activity himself.“
Maria Montessori, Basic Ideas of Montessori´s Educational Theory
Our school consists of two open main rooms, in which all materials are presented to the children. Additionally, our premises offer a small snack garden, a wardrobe, kitchen, as well as small retreat zones within the school.
When we need exercise during the school day, we find the playground in Ölzeltpark on our school doorstep.
We share our co-working house with a trading company (training and workshop tools for lively learning).
Music is an integral part of our Montessori Prepared Environment.
In this environment, our children not only find the music materials of Maria Montessori, we also have an educator who combines artistic and technical know-how and makes the world of music and instruments accessible to our children. Respecting the spirit of Maria Montessori, our children experience music as part of the big picture.
We find all areas of art integrated into Maria Montessori's Cosmic Education.
Our educators continually introduce the children to various art techniques embedded in human history. At the same time, the children find both opportunities and materials to refine art techniques in our prepared environment. It is open to the children to apply the artistic techniques they have learned in all areas of cosmic education.
Outdoor Forest Education
Our location at the outskirts of Vienna offers many opportunities to incorporate the use of the forests around our school. Our children are in regular contact with the natural world, and are frequently out and about in the Mauer forest. We have, on staff, an educator trained in Forest Education, so they learn more about the diversity of nature. She brings the work from the classroom into the field and can merge real world experience with theoretical studies.
