Montessori House Brussels is an independent international school that opened its doors in 2006 and is the first bilingual (English and French) Montessori school in the Brussels area. The school is located in the heart of the city, on Square Montgomery, on number 177, Avenue de Tervuren, close to the European Union Institutions. It is housed in a beautiful early 20th century townhouse with a charming garden and playground.
Montessori House Brussels follows a Montessori programme where children are challenged to develop their full potential. In addition to the academic curricular activities, the school offers music, physical education, poetry, arts and crafts and performing arts as part of the weekly programme (including swimming for children from 4 years onwards). There are also field trips each term to museums and local events. The children perform concerts and plays for parents twice a year.
The school has three classes for children between 2 ½ to 6 years with an average of 19 children, and one small preparation class for children from 2 years and 4 months (maximum of 7 children). For some of our youngest children we are able to provide a separate setting, where they can familiarise themselves with materials, routines and rules before becoming part of a larger group of children.
From 1st September until 31st January of every academic year this Nursery 1 programme (mornings only) will provide everything a child needs to become a well-prepared Montessori student. After completion, your child will be ready to join one of the Children’s House classes as from 1st February. From the 1st February, a new group of Nursery 1 students will start to prepare themselves for joining their fellow students in September of the following academic year. At the age of six, after having graduated from Montessori House Brussels, children are well prepared to either continue in Montessori education e.g., at International Montessori ‘Hof Kleinenberg’ or to attend any Belgian, European or International school.
