  • Maria Montessori
  1. Never touch the child unless invited by him (in some form or the other).
  2. Never speak ill of the child in his presence or absence.
  3. Concentrate on strengthening and helping the development of what is good in the child so that its presence may leave less and less space for evil.
  4. Be active in preparing the environment. Take meticulous and constant care of it. Help the child establish constructive relations with it. Show the proper place where the means of development are kept and demonstrate their proper use. 
  5. Be ever ready to answer the call of the child who stands in need of you and always listen and respond to the child who appeals to you.
  6. Respect the child who makes a mistake and can then or later correct himself, but stop firmly and immediately any misuse of the environment and any action which endangers he child, his development or others.
  7. Respect the child who takes rest or watches others working or ponders over what he himself has done or will do. Neither call him, nor force him to other forms of activity.
  8. Help those who are in search of activity and cannot find it.
  9. Be untiring in repeating presentations to the child who refused them earlier, in helping the child acquire what is not yet his own and overcome imperfections. Do this by animating the environment with care, with restraint and silence, with mild words and loving presence. Make your ready presence felt to the child who searches and hide from the child who has found.
  10. Always treat the child with the best of good manners and offer him the best you have in yourself and at your disposal.

Testimonials

  • EMILIA 6 yrs old

    When I went to Montessori Children’s House, I did not know I would find new friends but I found good ones and every day played with them and was meeting new children. At the beginning I as a bit shy, but I met the children I we started having fun.
    I enjoyed working with the materials very much because each one is different and fun and teaches you something new.
    I did not want to go to school because I would miss Yana and the other children, as well as the teachers.
    I liked story time very much and it was interesting because Diana was taking Bulgarian books and was reading them in English.

    Our kid started at MCH when he did not even have 2. He spent marvelous 4 years which made him a great individual. Those 4 years were engaging for us parents in a very good way too. In the first few months when he started he learnt very quickly how to dress, walk, talk and behave. But Montessori Children’s House is much more valuable than taking care for your kid for day-to-day stuff. MCH inspires the kids to be great social beings, to be eager for knowledge, kind and sharing. I fullheartedly recommend MCH. Dont judge kindergartens by the building, social status or the toys. You are not buying the next gen iPhone or Mercedes. Ask for ethics and values and you will be given a lot of time for that at MCH. By the way, it's one of the few kindergartens in Sofia where your kid will be in an truly international environment both among kids and teachers.

  • Elvan and Jason George (Melisa’s parents, USA)

    We started looking for a kindergarten since our daughter, Melisa turned age of two and a half, because she had never been in daycare/preschool before we needed to be really careful. We spent 2 months searching for a school for her. Finally, we found Montessori Children's House. After a couple of days there, she was a thriving, happy and well adjusted child. She loved coming to school to learn and play with her friends. My husband and I were both pleased by the excellent curriculum and structured environment.
    The open spaces, use of primary colors and continuity of the teaching faculty are so important to young children. Their natural curiosity and creativity are encouraged, and each child is permitted to learn at his or her own pace. Moreover, the teachers are always calm and soft-spoken, even at playtime, creating an atmosphere that is secure and reassuring for the children.
    When we enter the school, it is like entering an oasis of order and learning, where young minds are stimulated in the bright classrooms and under the shady trees. The classrooms and yards are neat and orderly and even the sandbox.
    We think that this school should be an example to other schools. Whenever someone asks about schools in Sofia for young children, Montessori Children's House is at the top of our list.

  • Nadia (Gazza and Sarah’s mother, Indonesia)

    Our first encountered with this children’s house in Sofia was a coincidence. I fell in love with this Montessori, when Diana showed me around the class, the learning equipments, she also explained the learning and teaching method, and she answered all my questions and fulfilled what I wanted for my children's basic education.

    Montessori teaching system had taught our children in so many ways that a child is capable of. Montessori Children’s House recognized the need of each child in order to develop their best skills.
    Both Gazza and Sarah have best basic practical skills for their daily live routines. They are now continuing their education here in Indonesia but I can tell proudly that they are more advanced in various levels than their peers. So I am again thankful to Detska Kushta Montessori Sofia who cared, taught, guided, not only our two beloved children but us the parents. We also learnt how to be a good teacher for Gazza and Sarah at home.

  • Irina (Antonia’s mother, BG)

    I have said many times that choosing “Montessori Children’s House” (Detska kushta Montessori) is maybe of the best decisions in my life. MCH is not only a place where my child was spending time, while we were at work. This is a place where my child became acquainted with the life itself; a place where we as parents felt also like being educated. There I had the feeling that they do not simply love children- there they first see and then bring up and educate the man, his/her personality. At Montessori Children’s House the child has the freedom to be herself and learns with the responsibility that comes along with every freedom. The language development, the contact with diverse cultures and the strong child’s healthcare are just part of the wealth we received from Montessori Children’s House. MCH gave a start to our daughter, which every child deserves and would be wonderful to receive. If I have to summarize in one word what MCH gives to their children it is love – love towards the person/man who unfolds.
