about us

Start Smart Montessori Centre was created in 2022 in Novi Sad with the desire to create self-motivated and responsible children and educate parents while respecting individuality, freedom of choice, and the world around us, using Montessori methods.

Depending on the wishes and needs of your children, we offer 60-minute lessons two or three times a week.

Start Smart aims to educate your child through diverse activities and play while developing independence, empathy, socialisation, self-confidence, motivation, attention, emotional maturity, logical thinking, and motor skills.

Maja Vuković is a graduate educator and specialist in preschool education, with more than a decade of experience working with children and their education. She finished her basic studies in 2007 and specialised in preschool education a year later.

In addition to a licence to work in kindergartens and numerous certificates (Nikola Tesla Centre - MENSE department for the gifted, "Communication at a dead end," "Self-evaluation of a preschool institution," ECDL, etc.), he also has a Montessori certificate issued by the Montessori Society of Serbia.

With her knowledge and experience in working with children, and through participation and support, she helped many events related to children and their development and education.

Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.
