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 skills, values, understanding, engagement and knowledge to create a better and more peaceful world.
Otkrivatel Montessori School dedicates itself to providing a quality Montessori bilingual education for children aged 14 months through 18 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 richly 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 our second location. We changed the name to Otkrivatel Montessori School in 2017. In 2022, Otkrivatel moved to an exclusive building on the doorstep of South Park and established the program for the high school education – from 8th to 12th grade. Otkrivatel is a candidate IB World School.
Otkrivatel Montessori School is still the only one school in Bulgaria to provide an authentic Montessori education from ages 14 months to 18 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 an accreditation by the Ministry of education and science in Bulgaria, a license as Innovative School and STAR international accreditation. Otkrivatel Montessori School is a candidate IB World School. The school is dedicate to provide a holistic education and exceeds the national standards set by the state for every level.
