An Overview

Nido Montessori is a trilingual English-Catalan-Spanish centre founded in 2015 and located in the neighbourhood of Gracia, in Barcelona. We are dedicated to providing an authentic Montessori environment for children 15 months to 6 years of age. Our innovative Montessori centre has seen steady growth since its opening and we expect to offer new programs in the near future.

At Nido Montessori we pride ourselves in our expertise in Montessori. All our guides are certified by AMI (Association Montessori Internationale). Nido is supported by psychologists and neuroscientists and we strive to foster practices of excellence.

We understand learning as a continuum that should, ideally, last throughout all our lives. During the first years of life, the foundations of a child’s personality and brain are set and our goal is for each child to reach their full potential. To achieve that, we offer two different environments that suit the different developmental needs of children aged 14 Months – 3 years and 3 – 6 years. We believe in self-construction as the fundamental power of the developing child; thus, our environments cultivate diversity in all aspects and offer the child countless opportunities to explore. We want independent, happy children who become adults that make meaningful contributions to the society of tomorrow.

Our Ethos

We believe that learning is a life-long process that begins before birth. Dr. Montessori taught us that “what the hand does, the mind remembers”, therefore we ensure that development is a physically as well as a mentally stimulating process. Children learn by modelling the behaviour of adults around them. One of the most important concepts that a child needs to learn to live successfully in society is that of respect, respect for themselves and respect for others, and this starts from birth. The Montessori Method is a respectful one. Children are treated with respect and patience, and through this they learn to be respectful and patient with themselves and others.

Our Center

Nido Montessori Center started in 2015 as a single space for children aged from 0 – 3. As demand grew quickly and two more premises became available next door, we decided to amplify our space. We now have two individual spaces. Our original space is dedicated to Infant Community, for children from the time they can walk in a stable way (approximately 15 months), until 3 years of age. The second space is dedicated to children from 3 to 6 years of age.

The layout of our center maximises independence from the start. All the classrooms are equipped with materials recognised by the AMI (Association Montessori Internacional) and we have an average ratio of 1 adult for every 6 children.
