Montessori Education in English
A comprehensive education to meet all their needs
We offer an unparalleled educational service in Granada, for children aged 3 to 12.
Come and visit us!
The Montessori approach is the essence of our school. This, for us, means much more than simply changing some aspects of the conventional model of education.
It is a completely different way of learning and teaching, designed to prepare children for success.
CHILDREN’S HOUSE (3 TO 6 YEAR-OLDS)
Classroom materials and activities develop self-control, confidence, and perseverance through the areas of math, language, sensory development, practical life, art, and culture.
ELEMENTARY (6 TO 12 YEAR-OLDS
The pace of learning in the different areas of the curriculum comes from the child’s own motivation and needs, and we encourage it through an environment rich in materials and activities that respond to their interests.
Community of families
Granada International Montessori School recognizes parents as the first teachers in life. Our goal is to collaborate with them to provide the best possible educational experience for their children.
We encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s education, and we invite them to observe in the classroom, participate in family workshops and activities, help organize field trips or school events, and connect with other parents, creating a network that links the classroom with the community and, in turn, with the world.
Granada International Montessori School provides a stimulating educational environment designed to foster a love of learning.
The children have freely availale materials in their reach, and this allows them a high degree of independence in their work. This goes hand in hand with our philosophy of freedom within limits.
The mixed-age groups provide a unique opportunity for them to learn from each other. This is a place where they can learn and develop at their own pace within a classroom environment with activities spanning a wide range of curricular areas and degrees of complexity, to satisfy the interests and needs of each child.
Offering the best for our families: the reason we’re here.
An extraordinary place for kids to discover the world, explore and experience for themselves. I see this evolution in my son every day; I know that my wife and I are partly responsible, but so are you. Thank you for existing!

A message to share that we are extremely grateful for the treatment, sensitivity and welcome our son received at this school. The whole team has thrilled us, seeing the professionalism, care and tact they had when integrating him into the new class. The place is beautiful, the patio is super nice, the spaces and materials to study as well, what a joy to have found them! THANK YOU for creating this space for children (and their families;)

After trying both public and private schools in the area, we finally decided to give Granada International Montessori School a try, even though it is a little out of our range both in physical location and financially. But it is well worth the effort. The school is like a haven for kids and parents alike. We have not only enrolled our son in the best school in Granada, we have also joined a “family” of parents both Spanish and international where we organize several extracurricular activities and weekend visits. We were planning on leaving Granada, but are now considering staying, just because of this school. Oh and it is 100% proper Montessori which is fantastic. One of the founders is a recognized expert nationally and is helping other schools “get it right”. I only wish all kids had the opportunity for great and respectful education our son is getting.
