Welcome

Dear Parents,

 

Colourwoods Montessori Kinderhaus was founded in 2004 in Zumikon. In February 2011 we moved our location to Poststrasse 25 in 8700 Küsnacht.
We are a bilingual school working with a maximum of 24 children consisting of four qualified teachers; two English speakers and two German speakers. Three of us are Montessori certified. Our certified English teacher works with Oxford Reading Tree and Jolly Phonics. In addition, on Thursdays, we have a creative dance teacher working with the children.

The children learn in a Montessori prepared environment gently guided by native English and German speakers. Our environment is designed to be developmentally responsive.  The children learn by touching, exploring and doing things by and for themselves.  We use children sized furniture and equipment with specially designed Montessori materials for math, language and practical life activities.  In the Montessori classroom, students choose activities from the environment and work at their own pace, alone, or in small or large groups.  Independence is a key element of Montessori philosophy.

We are an independent Kindergarten, accepting children from 3 years to 6.5 years of age, with our primary aim in preparing them for primary school. We help them discover the wonderful world of learning and becoming more and more independent through the freedom of choice in a Montessori classroom.
