With faith in the deep inner drive your child has to grow and self-construct his personality, Otkrivatel creates learning environments that allow your child to joyfully discover the world and their unique place in it. The work of our team aims to spark natural curiosity and encourages the children to follow their interests and personal passion by developing their talents and turning them into enviable academic knowledge, leadership skills, self-discipline, responsibility, independence and initiative.
Otkrivatel Montessori School dedicates itself to providing a quality Montessori bilingual education for children aged 14 months through 14 years. Otkrivatel is an authentic Montessori school with both Bulgarian and English AMI qualified guides in our classrooms. For everyone at Otkrivatel, education is a journey that is unique to each child, in a well planned, supportive and rich resourced environment which provides the child with abundant opportunities to develop themselves to their fullest potential.
Otkrivatel Montessori School was founded in 2012 by a newly trained Montessori teacher as a bilingual multi-cultural nursery and primary school dedicated to a child-centred prepared learning environment that supports natural development and self-construction. The school was originally called Peekaboo Montessori Children’s House and had a location in a green Sofia neighbourhood – Dragalevtsi. In 2016, we established an Elementary school program (from 1st to 7th grade) and we opened the doors at our property on Gluharche Str. We changed the name to Otkrivatel Montessori School in 2017.
Otkrivatel Montessori School is still the only one school in Sofia to provide an authentic Montessori education from ages 14 months to 14 years.
Otkrivatel Montessori School applies Montessori principles according the highest international standards of Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), the organisation founded by Dr. Maria Montessori. Otkrivatel Montessori School has been accredited by the Ministry of education and science in Bulgaria, since the school first opened its doors in 2013. In 2016 the Elementary program is licensed by the Ministry. In 2017 Otkrivatel Montessori School is licensed as Innovative School by Bulgarian Council of Ministers. The school exceeds the national standards set by the state for every level.
