Our school owns a vegetable garden which makes it possible to learn about gardening in addition to exploring Montessori botany Material. The Vergers Urbains association comes twice a month to give workshops to the children.
Lunch times at L’îlot Montessori is an important part of the Montessori method. It is an opportunity for the children to share and learn general manners at mealtimes. As well as encouraging them to lightly clean up and put away their used utensils.
Each child brings their own lunch box every day. Meals must be completely contained in clearly labeled hermetic boxes and will be reheated on site.
Plates and cutlery are provided by the school.
Sweets, cakes, chips and sugary drinks are not accepted in lunchboxes
L’ilot Montessori was founded in 2019 by 2 sisters, Peggy and Alexandra.
Peggy: After several years of working in the communication sector, Peggy graduated from the Maria Montessori Institute. Peggy has worked in several Montessori schools in Paris. Currently, she teaches 3-6 year old.
Peggy also has a 6 year old little girl so understands first-hand the challenges both parents and young children face.
It is with real joy that Peggy watches children evolve and flourish in an environment specifically prepared for them.
Alexandra is the administrative director. She has 15 years of experience as a Middle School French Teacher. She is also the mother of 2 teenage daughters.
Sharon, an American with AMI training, interacts with the children in English.
