International Montessori House follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. She developed a unique teaching method designed to help a child grow in a holistic way with all cognitive, physical, social and emotional in harmony.


Our experience was great, and completely rewarding and I sincerely hope all other parents will go through...from the initial visit and discussion, up to the point Benyamin joined the school. The staff, from the teachers to those supporting the work was all so supportive and welcoming right from the start. Our little one loved it and we had no fear of him experiencing any difficulties in terms of settling in. We would highly recommend to any other parents who are looking for a friendly, supportive and an amazing place for their children to play and grow. If we are ever to go back to Sarajevo, the choice of a school for Benyamin would be a really easy one!

We are very happy with the friendly, nurturing environment of the International Montessori House in Mejtaš, where our two daughters have attended. While the physical area is light, spacious and nicely balanced between indoor and outdoor spaces, it is the genuine love, care and attention of the teachers and staff that has made the experience such an enjoyable one for our daughters. Happy children make for happy parents!

Marc D’Silva, CRS Director

As an international family, we chose the Montessori House for both the bilingual approach - and the Montessori-style methodology.  Overall, we have been very satisfied with the quality of the programme, teachers, and facilities.  As a foreigner working in Sarajevo, I would strongly recommend the Montessori House to other international families, looking for a quality programme for the young children.

Our daughter Zara attended the International Montessori House - Mejtaš from June 2015 through June 2017. We were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism, kindness, and attention provided by the teachers and administrators at the school. Zara was able to grow in every sense of that word through this joyful and enriching experience. We would highly recommend the school to any parent looking for a positive learning environment for their child.

Our son enjoys very much going to the Montessori kindergarten. The teachers are very loving and attentive to the kids’ needs and their personalities. We also appreciate a lot the facilities and that the kids can go outside every day to the nice playground.

Montessori teachers are trained facilitators in the classroom, always ready to assist and direct. Their purpose is to stimulate the child’s enthusiasm for learning and to guide it, without interfering with the child’s natural desire to teach him and become independent. Each child works through his individual cycle of activities, and learns to truly understand according to his own unique needs and capabilities.
