Child Activity Center Harmony Donscoy Posad

The Donskoy Posad Child Activity Center was founded in February 2003. Since July 2006, it has been a Montessori school that serves about 15-20 children of different nationalities aged 2-6 years. English and Russian languages are spoken at the center but the priority is given to English.

The Child Activity Center “Harmony” is located on the 1st level of the Donskoy Posad building at Stasovoy st., 4
Operating Hours
The Center is open Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Donskoy Posad Child Activity Center “Harmony” is designed for children from 2 years to 6 years old.

We provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children.

Our Nursery Curriculum is based around the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, which shares the underlying principles with Montessori’s approach to education.

It supports an integrated approach to early learning and care and ensures children’s personal, social and emotional wellbeing, self-esteem, independence, team spirit and motivation for learning.

During daily activities children have an opportunity:
to develop social skills; to explore the physical world; to learn some practical life skills which promotes self-reliance and independence; to enrich their vocabulary and develop skills in expressing themselves; to learn the basic of mathematics; to develop their co-ordination through various physical activities; to participate in Art activities which is always an enjoyable experience and develops creativity. Learning through developmentally appropriate activities and materials in a nurturing social environment will be a great help to the development of the whole child - mind, body, and soul.
