This small but perfectly formed private school close to the Stadelhofen station and Kreuzplatz, between the Hottingen and Seefeld areas, is housed on two neat sites in a well-tended outdoor area. As a trilingual (German, English and French) day school for children aged from about 3 months to 12 years, it offers a full school service based on the Montessori Method.
The “Insle” first opened its doors on 2nd March 1992, so it marks its 25th birthday this year. We celebrated this anniversary on Saturday, 4th March 2017 with many friends of Montessori – and maybe you too – in the wonderful hall at the Hirschengraben Schoolhouse in Zurich. You will be able to see a selection of photographs on our Gallery page soon.
«Just as the best gym instructors and the best gym equipment alone fail to strengthen a child’s muscles, so too will teachers and a prepared environment alone fail to develop the spirit of a child. In both cases, it is the child’s own activity that leads to growth.»
(M. M. / The Discovery of the Child)
At our Montessori day school, children aged from 3 months to 12 years find a trilingual learning environment where German, English and French are not taught but simply used (and therefore successfully acquired) in classes that
cross the age groups, and where children learn from each other as well as from the teachers.
An experienced and well-trained team takes pains to provide the best possible care and education for your child at all stages, with great dedication and a powerful motivation. In bright rooms, lovingly furnished and generously
supplied with Montessori materials, children find everything they need for their development at their current age.
In our photo gallery, you will gain some insight into the Children’s House and the School. Allow yourself to be carried away into an alternative educational world and see the unique service we offer for yourself – pictures will, after all, often say more than a thousand words.
Are you looking for a school place, and would you like to register your child at this Montessori School? Are you interested in coming here for a
morning visit, a work shadowing period or for training; would you like to register with one of our sections in the Children’s House or the Primary School? If so, you’ve found the right page.
Our two properties (the Primary School and the Kindergarten) are located at Signaustrasse 7 and 9 in Zurich, not far from the Stadelhofen station and Kreuzplatz. Thanks to our position close to the centre, we are very well served
by public transport. You can easily get to us by tram, bus and the Forchbahn, as well as by car.
