Founded in 2001, Sunflower Montessori Crèche is Luxembourg’s leading Montessori crèche.
The most important stage of your child’s mental development occurs in the first six years of life. During this time Sunflower’s Montessori education method encourages the development of your child’s full potential.
Before even becoming a crèche, Sunflower was a vision.
A vision of care, love and renewal that grew bigger and bigger in Sam's and Helen's heart, and led to the creation of the first Sunflower Montessori Crèche in Findel in 2001. Tom took care of the back office and administration allowing Helen and Sam to focus on creating the very best Montessori environment for the children.
Driven by the will of sharing Sunflower's values with more families, Sunflower Montessori Crèche opened, in 2008, a purpose-built facility in Moutfort.
Located in a small village, with beautiful garden, it welcomes daily 100 children.
Tom joined the team full-time on 2014 as Managing Director and started to prepare Sunflower for its next phase. Sunflower Montessori care spread over the years to various locations in Luxembourg : Bertrange, Capellen, Hamm...
In 2014, Sunflower Galileo opened in the Nord L/B building in Findel, followed by Sunflower Eagle.
In 2018 the crèche where it all started expanded, and became a foyer de jour. It welcomes now after school children from 4 to 12 years old.
Since 2001, Sunflower Montessori Crèche welcomed, cared and loved thousands of children.
Our international staff helps daily to shape the future generations to become the adults of tomorrow.
Sunflower and montessori
Pink Tower, Roman Arch and Binominal cube…
If these names sound unfamiliar don’t panic !
They are Montessori material your child will use in our classrooms. What will they learn from it ? Everything…
What seems to be simple and natural movement for us adults is a new concept that needs to be learned by a child. At Sunflower, we are guiding them to learn those skills by themselves.
Holding the top of the Pink Tower shapes the future grip of a pencil. Sandpaper letters "inprint" letters and sounds in the children mind, and shape his future reading skills.
Trough Montessori, we are giving the children the autonomy to be themselves and to accomplish at their own pace.
A warm smile, an energetic high-five, a hug when needed...
This is what defines happiness at Sunflower
Music soothes the body and the mind. It is part of our daily routine with the children and by the children.
How do trees grow and where do they come from ? With plants and nature tables in our classes, we answer these amazing questions.
From playdough to cakes and biscuits, we bake everything, all the time !
Sunflower and plurilinguism
"The development of language is part of the development of the personality, for words are the natural means of expressing thoughts and establishing understanding between people."
Since 2015, Sunflower is implementing plurilinguism in its facilities through its daily routines, songs, stories and poems.
Our international team uses the principles of Maria Montessori, the awareness of sensitive periods and a strong knowledge of how children learn to offer a variety of languages.
The program created by the educational team is tailored to the childrens' needs and interests; and meets the « Cadre de référence national sur l’éducation non formelle des enfants et des jeunes » from 2016.
Luxembourg is a multicultural nation and Sunflower is a vivid example of its variety. We are proud to share our cultural awareness with your children to help them connect to the world.
Since 2017, Sunflower Montessori Creche is a certified language center by the Ministère de l'Éducation nationale, de l'Enfance et de la Jeunesse.
If your child is between the age of 1 and 4, he/she will enjoy 20 hours a week at Sunflower for free !
