Casa del Mar Montessori is the only traditional Montessori school in the Marbella area.
We offer a safe and stimulating traditional Montessori environment, based on the principles of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), where children can grow with purpose, peace and love.
We believe in educational environments that foster love of learning and innovation skills, creativity, curiosity, imagination, adaptability, initiative and collaboration. Environments where global awareness, multicultural literacy and humanitarianism are present.
We envision children who grow up to become engaged, self-driven and compassionate members of society. A future generation of critical thinkers, creators, leaders and professionals who trust themselves and understand the world in such a way that they will confidently be able to create positive change.
Casa del Mar is an environment with no judgment, no rewards and no punishments where we listen and value all ideas and opinions. Self-confidence, creativity and innovation are encouraged by respecting their ideas and allowing them to express themselves freely. By avoiding rewards in day-to-day activities and tasks, we are fostering self-motivation and building a healthy self-discipline.
We seek to provide a child centered education that respects the sensitive periods of each individual child and that provides a safe and nurturing environment that challenges and inspires their need for knowledge, skill and to socialisation.
We aim to create a community that can support and model the behavior that children need among adults in these formative years to grow into children who are self-motivated and love learning, can think flexibly and creatively and who are not only conscious of the needs of others but actively foster harmony within their peer groups.
We believe that the future will need people with the 21st century skills to contribute to a positive change in society and humanity and so, we work to maintain innate abilities in children, to help them build a strong personality and self-confidence to reach their full potential.
