Teacher Assistant

Opened in 2015, Aquilae Ecole Montessori welcomes children from 3 to 12 years old in a Montessori bilingual French-English setting. Our school is located in Grange-Canal in the municipality of Geneva in a semi-pedestrian environment.  Aquilae, the eagles in Latin, symbolise the balance between protection of the young, the reassuring environment of the nest and autonomy.
