Montessori Kinder Barcelona Services
We guide each child's progress with ample respect and warmth
Extended hours and annual calendar
To reconcile work and family life we offer care to your children from 8 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. from Monday to Friday throughout the year, except holidays and bridge holidays and two weeks during the Christmas holidays.
Nursery vouchers as a monthly or annual payment method (Tiquet Guardería)
We accept and manage daycare vouchers that mean an important percentage of savings for families.
Adaptation to the group according to the needs of the child and his family
We offer a process of gradual accompaniment by the family in the first weeks to achieve a smooth transition between the home and the group of children. The accompanying adult stays in the group for as long as necessary until the child connects emotionally with the educators and their group.
Pediatric telemedicine service in the classrooms
The educators are connected by video call with the pediatric emergencies team of Dr. Ruggieri from the Hospital de Nens de Barcelona for any consultation they need to perform in the moment.
Ecological catering supervised by food hygiene and health professionals (I)
The ecological restaurant Nabibi Vital Cooking in Poblenou prepares daily a fresh, healthy and balanced menu, adapted to the palate of children. Families receive online information from the daily menu and choose their child's diet according to their needs by age, food intolerance or vegan and vegetarian options.
Ecological catering supervised by food hygiene and health professionals (II)
The companies SAIA and STICSA, leaders in the sector, supervise the processes of alimentary hygiene and the monthly menus and offer talks and advice to the families on the part of a collegiate nutritionist
Complete linguistic immersion in each language
In the group, the interaction between the educators and the children is in English, German, Catalan or Spanish. All the activities are carried out in the language of the group under the premise of "Dominant, language". The exposure to each language is enough for the children to learn it at the native level. At home, it is also important that each adult speaks their first language and transmits all the richness of their own culture. Advice from Chrissy Bruce, Foundation Diverse Learning)
Public and private continuity schools
The former Kinder children continue their schooling in the public and neighborhood schools and in the international schools of Barcelona (Benjamin Franklin International School, Swiss School, German School, Hamelin, etc.) with whom there have been institutional relations for years.
Daily outdoor activities to the garden and the neighborhood and excursions
From the earliest ages the children spend part of the day in the open air, when they are babies only in the garden, then they go out every day to the neighborhood and between 3 and 6 they add weekly excursions through the city, incorporating the environment as a great learning classroom (weekly workshops of permaculture garden, circus, dance therapy and cultural activities in museums).
