At City Country School Madrid we believe that the entire mind of the child needs tending to, not just the part that receives information. In fact, we look upon the mind as the heart-mind, because the two cannot be separated, especially in the child. If a school is tending to the heart-minds of its students, then everything done in school must be done with care, thought and respect.
What the child studies and does in school must speak to the reality of his/her experience, it must be wholesome and sustaining to the spirit, it must be nourishing to his/her curiosity, it must feel important and beautiful to know, growing a desire to learn that can be sustained through a lifetime.
The Montessori pedagogy forms the foundation of our practice at City Country School, encompassing the philosophy, the curriculum and the methods of instruction.
