Colourwoods Montessori Kinderhaus was founded in 2004 in Zumikon. In February 2011 we moved location to Poststr. 25 in 8700 Küsnacht.
Today we are a team of three qualified teachers plus a creative dance teacher working with a maximum of 24 children.
The children learn in a Montessori prepared environment gently guided by mother tongue English and German teachers. Our environment is designed to be developmentally responsive. The children learn by touching, exploring and doing things by and for themselves. We use child sized furniture and equipment with specially designed Montessori materials for math, language and practical life activities. In the Montessori classroom, students choose activities from the environment and work at their own pace, alone, or in small or large groups. Independence is a key element of Montessori philosophy.
When the children are ready we introduce literacy in both English and German.
The children participate in the preparation of school lunch daily and in the dedicated cooking day on Tuesday.
The children play in the park daily and on Fridays they explore the natural environment in a nearby wood, weather permitting.
Close cooperation between teachers and parents creates an important foundation.
We are an independent Kindergarten with our primary aim to serve the interests of the children. We help them discover the wonderful world of learning and becoming more and more independent through the freedom of choice in a Montessori classroom. Since May 2009 we are an Official Privat Kindergarten recognised by the Kanton of Zurich BID.
