Math: number rods leading from the concrete to the abstract

Learning Environment: Our rooms are beautiful, bright and spacious. Each child is given the possibility to work at their own pace according to their stage of development in accordance with the Montessori philosophy. We provide materials which facilitate practical life experiences, sensorial and cultural awareness, maths and language development and arts & crafts as well as music and movement for self-expression.

Language: with the Moveable Alphabet we connect letters to make words...


Science: exploring African beans 



 "The essence of music is to express joy" - Aristotle 

Park: We make sure the children get outside every day, regardless of the weather. There are many parks close to the Children's Academy where the children can run and play.

Physical Education: Once a week we visit a gym in a nearby primary school. We work holistically to strengthen the musculoskeletal system and attach great importance to enjoyment in movement. 

 

Yoga: Yoga is a wonderful way to increase children's co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies. Yoga exercises can help children learn to relax, concentrate and be calm in a fun and creative environment.

Geography: Puzzle Map of Europe

Music & Movement: We encourage the children to experiment with all areas of music, such as percussion, rhythm, and learning to sing in tune and time. 


Because we are a very international group of children we also try to incorporate music from the children's native countries. 


 

Excursions: We regularly visit museums and theatres in Vienna. Once a month we go to the library to borrow literature and audio books which the children are interested in. 

 

Whether it's basketball, climbing, dancing, or running, we always encourage the children to learn to recognize their limits and to face new challenges. 

Learning to find peace and quiet with myself and my surroundings...
