Internship Opportunity

L’école La Vie est Belle ouvre ses portes à l’international.
L’école accueille tout au long de l’année des éducateurs Montessori du monde entier.

Our Location: We are peacefully located in South West France region one hour from Bordeaux in a small community. Our region is known for beautiful Bordeaux vineyards and rich culture and history.

Our Vision
• In the spirit of this shared practice and guidance, the intern gains experience and demonstrates increased competency as a Montessori teacher. In turn, the Directress is exposed to a “fresh” perspective on the Montessori approach, which often reinforces her/his commitment to the work and its rewards. Based on the principal that teachers learn best when supported by other teachers, the Montessori Directress and intern explore the world of Montessori education together, with the continual goal being a deeper understanding and mastery of the Montessori Method and materials, and a more confident and inspired approach to enriching the curriculum with shared ideas and experiences.
• Internship provides enriching opportunities for the children in our program to learn from experiences from other countries and talents of the intern.
