What we do
Valencia Montessori. More than just a school
“We believe in three simple rules underlying every decision: be local, let our environment be our guide and envisage how your grandchildren will be affected by your actions. Be respectful and follow the rhythim of each child.”Valencia Montessori
Valencia Montessori School is giving its students an holistic education inspired in the Association Montessori Internationale principles (AMI). As an authentic Montessori school, VMS is a mixed private school, situated in Valencia, offering a complete education to students between 1 and 12 years of age.
It was founded in 2012 by Sonia Mocholi, with the aim of providing a respectful and responsable education for children who want to study the British National Curriculum in a multicultural environment through the Montessori pedagoy and following the British curriculum.
A place where they are excited to learn, retain their knowledge and pursue their passions. Rather than restricting their natural tendencies, Valencia Montessori School’s Educational Programme uses children’s innate tendencies to their advantage.
Our team include the expertise on National Curriculum and Montessori pedagogy. Qualified British teachers and AMI-trained guides carefully create indoor and outdoor environments to entice students to act on their educational interests. Rich in a variety of age-appropriate studies and manipulative materials, VMS classrooms are designed to invite children to move about and freely engage with other children and the teacher as desired. The goal is simple: help students discover for themselves as they develop learning skills that last a lifetime.
As a British School in Valencia, the school is officially recognised by both educational authorities of British Education from England and Gales, after an inspection carried out NABSS (National Association of British Schools in Spain), and Conselleria d’Educació de la Comunidad Valenciana.
Most of the students at Valencia Montessori School are Spanish. However, an increasingly large percentage is international, with 20% of our student body currently coming from overseas.
Valencia Montessori’s alumni are eligible to transfer to any educational institution, either in Spain or abroad. We work closely with each family to ensure that each child is prepared for the choice that best suits them.
We model peace and responsibility, together we are trying to shape a better the future.
