International Bilingual Montessori School Frankfurt

The International Bilingual Montessori School (IBMS) teaches pupils from 18 months to 10 years in Frankfurt.


The International Bilingual Montessori School (IBMS) first opened in 1996, initially as an extension of the International Montessori Pre-School. IBMS offers children from over 20 nationalities, aged 18 months to 10 years a wonderfully rounded education with a focus on discovering the world through play. 

Based on the Montessori principles, the school teaches in both English and German using a full immersion method, with small class sizes and plenty of individual attention.

The school has three separate programmes:

  • The nursery section (Nido) for toddlers aged 1 and a half to 3 years old, divides each group into 10 children
  • The Children’s House (pre-school) for ages 3 to 5 has no more than 20 children per group. At this early stage, both Nido and The Children’s House offer bilingual as well as purely English-speaking groups.
  • The primary school is divided into two stages, with mixed age groups and tailored learning to ensure that pupils develop and learn at their own rhythm. The reception stage is for ages 5 to 7 and the primary stage is for pupils aged 7 to 10. Lessons in primary school are bilingual at all times, with two teachers working in parallel, each speaking their own native language. 


The school does not publish its fees online. Contact the school for more information and admissions enquiries.


The school is located in the Westend-Süd district of Frankfurt, and is a short 10-minute drive from the city centre.
