Workshop : The pond through the seasons

Wednesday morning workshops

The Montessori Meyrin School opens its doors on Wednesday mornings for a series of workshops about nature.

The workshops are intended for children aged from 3 to 8 years old.


Every Wednesday during the school year, from 9am (it is possible to come starting with 8.15am) until 12pm. If you wish, children can also have lunch at school and leave at 1pm.


Nathalie Cailleau assists your children during these mornings filled with discoveries. She has 6 years experience working with children with special needs in kindergartens and elementary schools. She graduated as a Montessori assistant. She practices Land Art and sculpture. Nathalie offers sensitive creative experiences throughout the year, and shares her passion for nature and art.


We are pleased to announce the program of the workshops along with the theme that will guide us throughout the year:


Nature is a sensory world.  Always curious with what it offers us to see, to discover, to feel, to touch, to contemplate…  This year, we will discover the fascinating world of the pond.


The pond is a place teeming with life, there is always something going on!


Around or inside the water a multitude of animals are busy … from the gerridae which glides like a skater to the frog which croaks, not to mention our expert in acrobatics, the dragonfly.


We will observe the pond in the Verger neighbourhood and we will reflect throughout the seasons:


  • What is a pond for?
  • Do you know what a tadpole is?
  • Why do ducks never get wet?
  • Where are baby dragonflies born?
  • What is an amphibian?


According to the seasons, during our outings, we will pick up leaves, branches, fruits, seeds… to discover Land-art …


A workshop cycle is designed to allow the child to develop a sensitivity to nature and get involved in activities that are sensory, manual and pedagogical, in the spirit of a Montessori school.
