My daughter was in Etre et Découvrir for 2 years. It was a great experience for us as a family & her. If you are looking for bilingual Montessori with a great ambiance, you should consider this school.

Enrolling my daughter at the International Bilingual Montessori School 'Etre et découvrir' has been a wonderful experience. The educators are kind and attentive, and they helped my daughter build her self-confidence throughout the year. The school's small size and beautiful setting create a nurturing environment for learning. The head teacher's charisma and valuable feedback to parents make the school even more exceptional. I highly recommend 'Etre et découvrir' for its holistic approach to education. L'inscription de ma fille à l'École Montessori Bilingue Internationale 'Etre et découvrir' a été une expérience merveilleuse. Les éducateurs sont aimables et attentifs, et ils ont aidé ma fille à développer sa confiance en elle tout au long de l'année. La petite taille de l'école et son cadre magnifique créent un environnement propice à l'apprentissage. Le charisme de la directrice et ses précieux retours aux parents rendent l'école encore plus remarquable. Je recommande vivement 'Etre et découvrir' pour son approche éducative globale

Our 4-year-old son is in his second year at Être et Découvrir and he loves it. The school is situated on the grounds of a beautiful château in a lovely village. As a fully anglophone family we were a little worried that a bilingual environment might allow our son to get by speaking English without learning and becoming comfortable speaking French. After his first year in this bilingual Montessori environment, he is not only comfortable and confident in his language skills, but we've noticed him proactively seeking out opportunities to speak French outside of school. It's a very diverse group of children who all seem to get along quite well. The teachers are caring and responsive, and the community of parents has been a huge positive that we weren't expecting. We plan to enrol our youngest son in the toddler program when he turns two without hesitation.

The Montessori school is what we wanted for our daughter. It’s the second year for her and I remember last year, after a few months at this school she started to help more, to share with others and she was more confident. The educators are wonderful and full of energy. They encourage children to explore, to develop their independence and to express their feelings. I highly recommend this school

My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time at Être & Découvrir. The Montessori philosophy is ingrained in every aspect of the school and the teachers have helped her ease into the school extremely quickly. I highly recommend this international, bilingual school, where your child will be able to grow and develop to his/her full potential.

The school is great, our child is super happy with the Montessori approach. The school is very well equipped, the teachers are kind and welcoming. There is multilingual environment, children coming from different countries which is great! Beautiful sourroundings: garden, chateau.. The school is private and you need to pay the fees, but its much worth it!

It is in a beautiful environment and the headmistress is amazing. She really cares for her school and all the children. The teachers are very gentle but strict. I absolutely recommend this school, only thing missing is a gymnasium for sports and a swimming pool...

Cette école à taille très humaine, chaleureuse et très professionnelle a su s'adapter aux besoins de notre fille. L'équipe a su l'aider et la transformer, lui donner confiance et d'excellentes bases pour ses années à venir. Vraiment très satisfaits.

"Ma fille a fait toute sa scolarité primaire à « Etre et découvrir ». Pendant ces 5 années, elle s’est épanoui tout en développant son autonomie, sa créativité, son gout d’apprendre et sa capacité à travailler en groupe. De plus, elle a acquis un excellent niveau d’Anglais. Elle a intégré la sixième sans aucune difficulté, comme si elle avait toujours évolué dans un système « classique ». Tous les fondamentaux étaient acquis grâce aux éducatrices qui l’ont très bien préparée à s’intégrer dans le système classique, tant au niveau des apprentissages que de la méthodologie. « Etre et découvrir » restera un moment important de sa vie".
