Amavida International Montessori School is located in an idyllic area in Vienna's 17th district, close to the countryside but within easy reach of the city.
It is is a bilingual school for children aged 6 to 12, whom Amavida accompanies in their development into responsible, self-confident, and happy people according to the principles of Maria Montessori.
As a bilingual school; Amavida ensures that all children learn from both an English and a German Montessori trained native speaker right from the beginning of their education.
|Teaching approach of the school||
The children learn in a self-determined and individual way, and the age mix of the multi-grade class is an essential part of the prepared environment. In addition to social contacts, this Montessori environment provides children with all the learning tools and materials they need to acquire their knowledge and skills independently. The lovingly observant Montessori teachers will support them.
