Summer Discovery Weeks

17 June - 23 August 2024 Sofia from 9:00 to 17:00

Weekly programmes that spark learning, exploration, discovery and fun.

From 6 to 15 years – open to students from primary and secondary school

The Summer Discovery Weeks of Discover Montessori School offer an exciting opportunity for 6-15-year-old students to continue their learning experience and practice new skills during the summer. The Programme offers opportunities for creativity, discovery, social interaction, and fun.

Each week is designed around a transdisciplinary theme for students to discover and investigate. Students take part in creative projects, language, math, and science activities, singing and music, outdoor games, field trips, sports, and more that stimulate children’s creativity and allow them to learn while having fun, all wrapped up in that week’s theme.

Each day builds with new projects and activities, progressing towards a larger scale project at the end of the week. Our program puts discovery and joy first so children don’t even realise they are learning!

The learning environment is thoughtfully prepared with resources and hands-on activities to engage all of their senses while promoting great work, creativity, movement, cooperation and collaboration.

Abundant sunshine and fresh air are a must as children enjoy daily play on our nature-inspired playground, near by park, forest and mountain. Every week the students have a a Field trip for Culture Exploration and a Nature hike. 

Summer sports activities are incorporated into the weekly schedule—rollers and skateboarding in June, football in July, and swimming in August. In these classes, children focus on individual skills and sportsmanship while providing an opportunity for the child to be challenged through fun and games.

Montessori elements of independence, choice and responsibility carry over into the Summer Discovery Weeks culture as we inspire children to be their best selves. 

The teachers facilitate the interactions and learning experiences using Bulgarian and English language. Each group has a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 12 students.

Sample Schedule

Every day at Summer Discovery Weeks is meant to be unique. We endeavour to be constantly exploring, whether in our learning environment, going on wilderness adventures, or travelling to visit locations first-hand to witness Bulgarian culture, landscape, animals and plants up close and personal. Each week has a cultural exploration trip and nature hike, along with nature walks and games that relate to the topic at hand.
