Brand new Montessori school opens in Nyon. Offers after school care until 18:30
Open Days – Saturday 10th and 17th December from 09:00 -12:00
The “Petite Prairie”, in the northern area of Nyon is developing fast. Many new apartments have recently been built and are now almost fully occupied. With a grocery store, café, pharmacy, gym, a frozen food outlet all on site and the Porte de Nyon shopping area directly opposite, new residents are well catered for.
To complete the picture, a brand new Montessori school catering for 3-6 year olds will open in the area on 9th January 2017.
The school itself is in a pedestrianised car free zone (there is parking for parents very close by). The school is ideally situated for parents to drop children off at school and be on the A1 motorway within minutes. It’s also convenient for those using public transport, with a bus stop very near the school, and buses departing for and arriving from Nyon railway station on a regular basis. Once the nearby Reposoir (the new sports complex, school and large park) is completed this will give Nyon a new centre of gravity.
The school itself is bright, modern, spacious and fully equipped (see photos below) and completely new. The Montessori method of teaching has, however, been around since Maria Montessori opened her first classroom in Rome in 1907. Click here to read more about the Montessori pedagogy. See bottom of page to watch a video on Montessori.
The Nyon school’s staff consists of one French speaking teacher and one English speaking teacher, both of whom have Montessori diplomas from the Association Montessori Internationale and many years of teaching experience in the Montessori environment.
The school offers half-day and full-day programmes from Monday to Friday throughout the school year. The school will follow the vacation dates of the Canton of Vaud and as boon for working parents, it will also offer an option for care of children after regular school hours (16:00 -18:30).
The school has a flexible approach to school lunches: children can either bring in their own meals or choose a food option from the school’s own caterer.
There will be two open days at the school in 2016 – Saturday 10th and 17th December from 09:00 -12:00
The address of the school is: Allée de la Petite Prairie 14, 1260 Nyon Google map link here
