What we offer


Congratulations to the duo, consisting of the 11-year-old violinist Ilva Eigus (student at the Montessori School "d'Insle" in Zurich, violin studies with Liana
Tretiakova at the Zakhar Bron School of Music in Zurich) and the 14-year-old pianist Javelyn Kryeziu (student at the Kunst und Sport Gymnasium Zurich, Piano
studies with Dmitri Demiashkin, Musikschule Konservatorium Zürich MKZ) to win the first prize at the finale of the Swiss National Youth Music Competition in
Lugano, in the category Duo Chamber Music, for the presentation of one piece each by Schubert and Prokofiev. In both works, the jury highlighted the
wonderful interplay and the well thought-out, mature interpretation.

It is a pleasure to announce that all children who transferred from our school to the long-term Gymasium school last Summer have now successfully passed the probation periods.
This is a result of hard work! We therefore sincerely and heartily congratulate them on this success!

«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)

What we offer

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.

About us

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.
