The school


Welcome to the International Montessori School Les Colibris de Sophia-Antipolis.

The International Montessori School of Sophia Antipolis is an international nursery and primary school that offers Montessori pedagogy and whose learning is done in French and English.

An education for life that cultivates your child’s values, emotional, physical, psychological, intellectual and social intelligence.

Your child will develop all his potential with the help of educators trained and qualified in Montessori pedagogy. In all classes we have educators who have been trained in AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) centres.

School video presentation

Our school currently welcomes 130 children from 2 to 12 years old who are divided into 4 levels in a prepared and bilingual environment: 2-3 years old, 3-6 years old, 6-9 years old and 9-12 years old.

Located in the heart of the Sophia-Antipolis science park, the school is located in the heart of nature. We have set up 3 areas: a garden with games for the youngest, a sports field and a park in nature with wooden games, a vegetable garden, fruit trees and animals (chickens and rabbits).

The partnership between the teaching team and the parents is essential to promote a quality welcome for your child who will spend part of the day at Les Colibris. Together, we will meet the needs of each child, according to their age, and thus offer them elements of physical and emotional security, and elements of socialization. He will be able to lay the foundations for his intellectual and academic development.

The school offers Montessori activities in French and English every Wednesday of the year and during school holidays from 08:30 to 17:15 in day or half-day (except for Christmas and August holidays). I register for Montessori Wednesdays or holidays. I register for Montessori Wednesdays or holidays.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Les Colibris International Montessori School.

Je voudrais vous dire combien j’adore l’école.  Je suis impressionnée chaque jour par le français de Jake, sa capacité à respecter les autres et je sais que tout cela est grâce au travail des Colibris.  J’ai toujours été 100% ravie avec l’école et c’est un plaisir de venir tous les jours chercher les enfants et de voir à quel point les éducateurs prennent sincèrement soin de nos enfants.

“Je vous remercie beaucoup pour toutes ces photos souvenirs!!! Leia a adoré voir ses copains en photo. Leia commence à répéter quelques mots en anglais, c’est génial! Je pense que ça lui a donné envie d’apprendre l’anglais et elle a adoré toutes ses activités, elle était ravie tous les soirs de me montrer ses productions.”
