Today we are taking a peek inside the beautiful Montessori School Almeria! This school offers a British education following the Montessori Pedagogy. They have an Infant Community (18-36 months), Children's House (3-6 years) and a Primary Program (6-12 years).
The Children's House is full of light and colour. Above is the language area with the Metal Insets and Chalkboard in the middle. There is a nice big bookshelf (with foward facing books) and lots of flowers placed around the room.
Colourful Practical Life shelves!
An outdoor area. You can get a better view of this area in the video at the bottom of the post.
Isn't this area gorgeous? The plants on the walls!
This is in the Primary classroom. You can immediately see the difference from the Children's House, the change in materials, the resource books. I love this really open shelving system, although there are lots of materials here, it still feels light.
Montessori maths materials - a constant in Montessori classrooms around the world and such a familiar sight!
In the Primary classroom there is more opportunity for collaborative work and you will often find more group spaces. This is a really lovely video by the school, I love the capture of the child sharing snack (apple, I think) to classmates.
