We believe in the Montessori method as laid down by Maria Montessori herself. She believed that a childs greatest desire is to explore and learn and she believed that each child regardless of their background should be encouraged to reach their full potential. Realta Montessori was set up with all of this in mind..
We at Realta encourage our children to be independent thus developing and improving their confidence and good self esteem as well as creating an environment where each child can learn according to his/her own ability.
Realta Montessori engage in plenty of Art & crafts, baking and gardening.
