Montessori school - Any Feedback from parents?

Hello there - I am hoping to get as much feed back from parents living in Mauritius as possible.  I am a Montessori School teacher (Kindergarten 3-6 years) and I am looking to open a Montessori Kindergarten abroad.  Research has shown that there seems to be a need for schools on Mauritius and I would like to know if a Montessori method of education would be something parents in Mauritius would consider (as I know at present there isn't one).  I would really appreciate hearing your views on this.

Hello,  I am not sure if I can really answer your question 100% but I would like to have some input which perhaps could help.

It is not really true that there is a need for schools in Mauritius but I agree we do lack many things in our education system in Mauritius which focus more on academics. 

Education is free in Mauritius and the government schools have a very good standard.  Therefore, most people send their children to government schools as they get good education and no fees need to be paid.  But we do have few private schools where perhaps 10% of the population and expatriates children go to.   Most Kindergarten schools however are not free in Mauritius, therefore there are many of these.  As I understand Montessori education is mainly applied to children of 3-6 yrs, so I wouldn't deny the fact that it could be interesting to parents as they have to pay for Kindergarten.

But I think more important is to do some outreach on the school as I am 100% sure most people in Mauritius do not even know about Montessori teaching.

I saw this on the Internet, maybe you can contact them if you haven't done so.

Best of luck.

Thanks for taking the time to give some advice it is greatly appreciated.

Hi somebody can help me in mentioning me all the Montessori schools in mauritius.
I live at Beau-Bassin, it will be Great if a Montessori school was somehow a bit near my place.
Please help me thank you.

A school named "montessori" already exist in belle mare village or nearby belle mare. My niece goes to that school, she is nearly 4 years old.

I am also looking for one near Quatre Bornes...

Is there one??


I recently moved to Mauritius (four months ago) and my son who is four years old is in a French school.  I would like however to place him in the Montessori system if there is a school located near by, in the Tamarin area.  If anyone can provide the names of Montessori schools on the island, I would greatly appreciate your help. 

Thank you!

Hello cyb

Kindly note that this thread has been inactive since 2014.

What do you wish to know about Montessori school please?


This thread has been inactive since 2014 but education does not expire after 1 month.

I'm deeply interested in the Montessori education and I'm thinking about putting my kids into one of them.

What are the options available in Mauritius?

Is there a list of schools available?

What's the closest from Quatre Bornes?

Is it a Montessori school?

Thanks. I'll call tomorrow

Hi "cyb", my name is Susan, I am a University Lecturer as well as a high school teacher currently doing Montessori training. My husband, an expat, and I, currently residing in South Africa, are considering a move to Mauritius. I was, like another person on this thread, considering looking for a Montessori teaching position, or failing that, opening a Montessori School in Mauritius. Curious to know whether you have made any progress on finding a school for your children. I am not sure what restrictions govern non-citizens opening businesses in Mauritius, but when I am finished my training I will visit Mauritius personally to establish this. From long experience I know that personal visits deliver better results. Drop us a line if you have a moment, if you wish to talk privately my email is susanbmaritz[at]

Hi cyb

any luck with the school?

Hello there, I'm interested. Please open good clean one in Tamarin or Black River. All of them that I saw was too dirty also too many kids in one class. Teachers or assistances were not paying enough attention to the kids.

Hi friends!
There is one in quatre bornes it's KidsCool. I have been there its made according to the needs of kids. They are doing play based education and providing more opportunities to the kids to discover themselves. It's ii n French and English both. They are new with lot of innovative and different techniques. I hope you will like it. They also have Facebook page.
Have a nice day

Coming into this conversation late, but same question:  Are there any established Montessori schools?  We're probably going to settle in the North - around Mid-July.  My spouse is also a trained Montessori teacher - and we may be interested in throwing our name into the hat if it came to starting a home grown school.  Anyone with updates?
