Preprimary students at Malherbe International School

Our preschool classes (2-4 years old) are strongly Montessori based. 


The average class size of 12-15 students ensures an optimal learning experience. Our nursery class for 2-3 year olds includes a full-time teaching assistant in addition to the main class teacher.


Montessori based approach


Classes are taught in English by Montessori-trained English teachers. We accept children from the moment they turn 2 years old in Le Vésinet.

Our educators guide the children through their acquisition of the major age-appropriate academic and social skills. Main areas of focus are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Practical life and sensorial development
  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Mathematical development
  • Cultural and physical development (music, sports, geography)


We have adopted the Montessori method of education because 

we believe it offers extraordinary benefits in terms of the child’s 

development of autonomy - and personal and intellectual growth - 

at the early stages of his or her school experience.


French instruction for our young learners


Non French-speaking children may also benefit from bi-weekly French lessons in addition to their regular Sports and Music lessons which are taught in French. The aim is to slowly provide our French learners with the foundations of the French language through an immersive, non-formal approach before they begin a more formal acquisition in Year 1 at age 5. French lessons will include games, songs, arts and crafts, movement and exercise or story time.
