The International Montessori School: bilingual education for 2-12 years

The International Montessori School (Ecole Montessori Internationale) in Grenade-sur-Garonne was founded in 1999 in order to offer a specific and bilingual education to children 2 to 12 years old in the Toulouse area. It has four main aims in its teaching of the Montessori pedagogy:

*Respect for each child’s sensitive periods of development
*Constant attention to the child’s own rhythm and needs.
*Simultaneous learning of French and English in a multicultural environment.
*Respect and awareness of Nature emphasised by the school grounds.

The school follows the Montessori educational principles giving every pupil the opportunity to blossom as an individual, feeding the child on self-respect and on the respect of others. The school is international both in terms of its teaching staff and of its children who all come from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

The school has three mixed-age programmes:

  • Wee Class (2 to 3 years)
  • Big Class (3 to 6 years)
  • Cosmic Class (6 to 12 years)


School fees range from 4,171 to 5,626 euros annually. Fees can also be paid in termly installments. For extra information on day care costs and registration fees click here.


Set in the countryside, in an old “maison de maître” surrounded by a park, large trees and a vegetable garden, the school offers exceptional working conditions as it satisfies the children’s need for beauty, space and calm. Grenade itself is a 30-minute drive from Toulouse city centre.
