Barcelona Montessori School will also offer a sport curriculum which unique within Europe; Montessori Sports.
The curriculum is certified by the AMI, this is the first time in over a 100 years that the AMI have approved an extension of curriculum. It is designed to teach the fundamentals and benefits of sports through self awareness, body control, team work and mental preparation, without the competition aspect to sport.
The formation will take place during the month of August and will concern all of our AMI trained staff, it will be run by Ruben Jongkind himself. After the training we will send videos back to Montessori Football staff so that they can check we’re doing the exercises the way they should be. The formation and the activities will evolve as the children grow and the primary children will play regular games of football once they’re level will be good enough.
Montessori sports already have plans for other sports such as Tennis, Basket and more. As of now Montessori football will only be available to the children of our school but we are not against the idea of offering after school Montessori football club later down the line.The plans for our garden currently involve space for greenery, plants and trees. Visitors might be surprised to know that these plans will not change greatly and we certainly do not need to add a football pitch. Instead we will be adapting the current plans so that children can develop their football skills alongside nature.
