Our values




Our story

A commitment for an education of kindness, caring and trust.


When we founded Les Colibris, International Montessori School in 2009, it was for us a social commitment to children, so that they could live their lives to the fullest by promoting their development.

Through our experiences in different countries, we have realized that the power of education can change society and the human being.

“Education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela

An education in kindness and trust, which takes into account the child as a whole being for his or her development, it’s what motivated us to build our project.

So, we started with 5 children in the child community, 10 in children’s homes and 4 in primary schools. Since then, we have taken in more and more children to meet the needs of families. Our paths meet with the same goal in mind, respect for the child and his or her work rhythm.

A school located in the heart of nature

In 2015, we moved to larger facilities with a surface area of 1,200m2.

Located in a green setting in the middle of the Brague National Park in Sophia Antipolis, we have an outdoor space of 3,000 m2.

An accredited Montessori school


After the school moved in January 2015, the delegation of the AMF (Association Montessori France) and ISMM (Institut Supérieur Maria Montessori) commission granted us accreditation.

We are one of the 14 Montessori schools in France that have obtained this accreditation (among approximately 200 Montessori schools).
