For children from 15 months to 12 years of age
The only authentic Montessori school in Marbella
A child-centered learning environment
Where children are nurtured to reach their unique potential
A holistic approach to education, that acknowledges the need for the human being to develop their intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials to become a fulfilled and happy human.
A student-centered learning looks for the child's interests, recognizes and emphasizes their unique abilities and follows their own pace of learning. Creativity and innovation are fostered every day by encouraging each child to pursue their innate curiosity and interests.
The learning takes place through the child’s own activity. The use of Montessori materials builds a foundation of concrete experiences of abstract concepts, assisting your child to attain a deeper level of understanding. Reflection upon experiences is encouraged by the guides; critical thinking, independent decision making and problem-solving skills are practice daily.
Children of different ages help one another. Younger children admire the work of older ones and are take an interest in the work they are doing because the difference in their abilities is not as big. For older children, teaching younger ones allows them to consolidate their knowledge as well as practice their leadership skills.
Social and Emotional learning
The ability to recognise and regulate one's emotions, thoughts and behaviours is a fundamental learning for the human being. As part of the holistic approach to education we integrate practices that will help our children develop self-discipline, empathy, teamwork and ethical responsibility. Mindfulness and meditation are practice daily.
Global citizenship and sustainability
Upon a foundation of respect and within a framework of peace education, the Montessori Methodology aims to instil the values, attitudes and behaviours that support responsible global citizenship: creativity, innovation, and commitment to peace, human rights and sustainable development.
It immediately became clear to me that these women are
putting their hearts and souls into creating a safe,
respectful, beautiful environment where children will
Every detail of the “prepared environment” is consciously crafted and assiduously maintained.
At Casa del Mar children always come first.
The guides are respectful and kind, giving the best of themselves.
You're doing a wonderful job, and I'm grateful to be part of it.
In this critical phase, I want Oliver to be in a place
where they understand and accompany him the same way I
would—or actually much better.
I want to feel comfortable leaving him, which for me means knowing that the environment he spends half a day in meets all my values and shares my beliefs. That the people who will guide him through this critical period are experts on his specific age developmental phase, and will always offer him the right activity at the right time—something that interests him and has the right amount of challenge for him not to be frustrated, but to thrive and to feel empowered (which is something that, for example, I struggle at home when I think of activities to do with him or toys to buy for him).
The only authentic Montessori school in the Marbella area. Wonderful!
"Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavour always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence."
