Maria Montessori believed that all children naturally want to learn about the world in which they live, that they have an inner drive that inspires them to achieve their goals.
At Riemontessori I seek to inspire children with wonder and confidence by providing individual education for each child. The environment is carefully prepared, with specially prepared materials for children to learn about the world around them rather than simply being taught about it.
Children's inner world and curiosity can be harnessed into self-development as they begin to develop their understanding of touch, sense, feel, the natural world, mathematics, art and all the subjects which make up our adult understanding of the world.
"What is essential is to observe! Get to know your child. If you really ... feel what she needs, then you will respond in the right way."
Dr. Emmi Pikler
