Vision

We aim to nurture love of learning, curiosity and self-awareness in our children by providing an environment that supports educational excellence with focused activities built around investigation, learning through play and social development.

We utilise a synergistic pedagogical approach rooted in traditional methods such as Montessori, story-telling, nature-based spiritual and sporting activities. We incorporate the research-based benefits of multilingualism, mindfulness, daily outdoor activities, and low teacher-student ratio limited to <1:7, to maximize neuro-development. All our pupils are certified as home-schoolers allowing them to follow child-centric learning.

Our facilities

We are located in the picturesque commune of Pully, south east Lausanne, a 5-minute walk from the lake. Our centre is equipped with full Montessori materials that emphasise hands-on learning, designed to stimulate the children’s natural interest. Our teachers are fully qualified native English and French speakers trained in Montessori and related child-centred teaching methods.

Our learning activities are not limited to the classroom. We take advantage of local parks, the lake, play areas, public facilities such as the excellent local pools, museums, wildlife excursions and the numerous walking and hiking trails.

We provide a large sister chalet at the foot of Verbier (Le Chable), to facilitate winter skiing and sledging activities, with qualified multi-lingual instructors. We provide a dedicated children’s martial arts instructor to foster agility and self-discipline.

Our programmes

We currently offer learning to children aged 4 to 8 years on a day placement basis. This involves learning activities which aim to establish within the child the intellectual, emotional and physical rigour needed to become a self-directed learner, flexible thinker and creative problem solver. The activities are based around the five principles of Montessori:

1. Respect for the child

2. The absorbent mind

3. The sensitive periods of development

4. The prepared environment

5. Auto-education

The centre is a community-based space and is available to support the community with tuition for children aged 4 to 8 (expanding), home schooling support, language classes, spiritual, mindfulness and community based activities.
