Learning at Montessori Córdoba
At Montessori Córdoba learning is an exciting process of discovery. The children in our classes learn at their own pace according to their own choice of selected activities. Children enjoy 3-4.5 hour work cycles during which they investigate, research and manage their own learning with the support of trained Montessori guides who facilitate the child’s interaction with the learning environment and the International Montessori Curriculum.
Montessori students develop concentration, motivation, health, self-discipline, and a love of learning. Our school environment prioritises the well-being and best interests of our students. An education at Montessori Córdoba is an education for life; preparing our students for success and happiness in the 21st Century.
We are committed Montessorians who firmly believe that the philosophy and method developed by Maria Montessori a hundred years ago combines all the features of a coherent and relevant education for children today. Our international staff team work together with great purpose to provide the highest quality care and education for all of our students.
For children to become truly bilingual in Spanish and English, the best method is to experience full inmersion at Montessori Córdoba in their second language in the Early Childhood Environment (0-6 years old) and then move to a bilingual sytem; 70% English and 30% Spanish, in Elementary (6-12 years old).
Our enrichment program is an opportunity for our students to attend specialist classes with qualified teachers 5 days a week, during school hours.

We like families to be involved in school life. Whether it's organising a seasonal get-together, getting their hands dirty in the vegetable patch or fund raising each Montessori Córdoba family contributes what they can, when they can, to make their child's school and education an extension of home for our students.
Nutrition and healthy habits are best formed early in life. The organic food provided at Montessori Córdoba is the best we can give our students. We choose locally grown, seasonal produce and prepare it to retain its nutrients. Montessori Córdoba students are introduced to a wide variety of interesting and healthy foods and our kitchen is part of their environment. Meal times form part of the curriculum and children lay the tables, serve themselves and eat together in a happy, relaxed family atmosphere. Afterwards everyone contributes to tidy up and clean. The children then brush their teeth and enjoy a nap, quiet reading time or play in the garden.
