Montessori School

Welcome to Ivory Montessori School (IMS) - Your Montessori School in Abidjan

IMS opened its doors in September 2016 with the aim of supporting parents seeking an alternative and positive educational approach. As a true Montessori school, we are committed to implementing the values of Maria Montessori.

«Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.»

Maria Montessori

A Cosmopolitan School of Excellence

Our institution is known for its cleanliness and welcoming atmosphere. IMS is a cosmopolitan school that brings together children from over 30 different nationalities, representing all continents. We believe in the importance of cultural diversity for an enriching education.

Personalized and Nurturing Education

At IMS, each child is considered a unique individual within our community. Our educational approach is tailored to their individual needs, offering compassionate and respectful guidance.

Safety and Home-like Comfort

IMS has been designed to provide a pleasant, secure, and warm environment, similar to a home. We believe that children, parents, and staff should feel welcomed.

Our Evolution

Since our opening in 2016, IMS has experienced continuous growth in the number of students each year. This growth is also reflected in the expansion of our staff, ensuring a high level of quality in reception and teaching.

Natural Environment

IMS also houses rabbits and turtles, providing children with the opportunity to learn to care for animals and observe them in their natural habitat. Additionally, our vegetable garden is a place where children take pleasure in tending to plants.

We are proud to be the first authentic Montessori school in Abidjan, and we continue to evolve to meet the educational needs of the community. Contact us to learn more about our Montessori school, our history, and how we can contribute to your child’s development.
