TIMS is an international, English speaking school with two groups of children mixed in age between 3 and 6 years and two groups of toddlers, ages 1 to 3 years. The school day runs from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Early morning care starting at 8:00 a.m. is available if needed. Afterschool activities, usually from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, are offered on most days. Afterschool care is currently provided Mondays to Thursdays from 3:00 to 5:00 pm and Fridays from 3:00 to 4:30 pm.
We offer German, Music, Gym, Yoga and Science on a weekly basis.
The Taunus International Montessori School follows the philosophy and methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
TIMS classrooms offer the children a wide range of Montessori materials. These educational materials have a built-in control of error, allowing the children to see and correct mistakes by themselves. They are designed to be used by the children independently.
Independent work helps each child to develop concentration, coordination, and self-discipline. In addition, the materials are geared to different levels of ability in the classroom, allowing children to move from one level of complexity to another as they are ready.
We see movement as the cornerstone of any experience.
