Montessori PreSchool

We are happy to provide Montessori education for the international community of Nur-Sultan. We accept children from 1 to 6 years old. The setting is a comprehensive learning environment where children’s natural passion for learning is guided by qualified English speaking Montessori teachers.

As you may already know Montessori education promotes independence, creativity, self-discipline, respect, responsibility, maturity, care of the environment and other people, trustworthiness.

Our curriculum includes:

  • Practical Life Exercises
  • Sensorial Activities
  • Math
  • Language
  • Music
  • Art

We were thoroughly impressed with Zebra Montessori when we first enrolled our son. The school offers a very individual approach to every student. This was evident, for example, when we transferred our son to the older group, even though he might not have been ready in certain aspects of his preparation. The teachers would take the time to retrieve age-appropriate materials from elsewhere, just so that he could work with them on his own and not feel left out when the older kids were working on something that may have been a little difficult for him to accomplish. The teachers are also very invested in having the children develop properly, especially when it comes to socializing with others. They will take the time to explain why certain behaviors are occurring and how to mitigate negative behaviors. Overall, we are very impressed. Having the school located on University property is also a plus, as it is a very short walk in the morning. We are looking forward to another great year with Zebra Montessori.


Our daughter started attending Zebra a few months ago (at 2 years old) and it was her first experience in an educational setting. The teachers were so kind and helpful as she learned and adjusted to the environment. It did not take her long to adjust and she soon was sad to leave every day because she loved it so much. The teachers really love the kids and spend their energy every day to ensure the children get so many developmental opportunities. Our daughter has learned so much in the few months she's been at Zebra.


Our 2 year old daughter is very happy attending Zebra Montessori 1-3 y.o. group. She wanted to attend daycare even on the weekends. She spends all the time talking about her teachers and her classmates. She is very happy there. We have seen how she hugged her teachers and that has made us realize the great work they do there and how happy they make our daughter. In this year she has learned a lot, not only developing her language but she has improved her psychomotor skills.


Здравствуйте, Лана! Мы рады быть частью Монтесори Зебра. В первую очередь, благодарны учителям в обоих группах. За этот период Аделия очень повзрослела и стала самостоятельная, приобрела многие интересные навыки. Все учителя очень открытые и добрые по отношению к детям. Аделия их всех очень любит. Но больше всего отмечает, мисс Асель и мисс Индиру. Все учителя очень отзывчивые, всегда готовы ответить на вопросы и просьбы. С появлением мисс Алекс, словарный запас и произношение Аделии значительно улучшилось. И она ее очень полюбила. Хотелось бы отметить, что на наши любые просьбы и пожелания, сразу идут отклики от вас и учителей. Что очень радует!
