About childcare

      • Väike Päike Montessori childcare provides education through Montessori curriculum.
      • Our mission is to direct children’s energy and curiosity to develop their full potential in a safe, loving, and affirming environment.
      • The Montessori method encourages independence by children’s natural exploration and own pace.
      • The guide Margarita Raaliste is trained by the Administration Montessori Internationale (AMI) at the appropriate age level (0-3).
      • The childcare has a well-balanced division of ages as well as an appropriate number of children to ensure social development: 10 to 14 children. Every child will have time to adapt to the community, so children will enter the group one by one gradually.
      • Childcare is open Monday – Friday 8:00-16:00
      • Community is scheduled five days per week with substantial 2 hour uninterrupted work periods every morning and outside play every day in any weather

Margarita Raaliste

  • Margarita Raaliste is a mother of 3 kids and Occupational therapist from Latvia. She has been living in Estonia since 2015. She has been working as an Occupational Therapist with adults and children both in Latvia and in Estonia. Later Margarita was certified as an AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) teacher for the 0-3 age group (trained by Patricia Wallner / Netherlands) and AMI Assistant 0-3 and 3-6.Margarita started to organize Montessori Parent-Child playgroups in Estonia as a teacher to provide a developmental and exciting environment from an early age. Margarita in daily work observed that the Montessori prepared environment leads toddlers to independence and concentration; learns a set of concrete life skills and self-confidence – but, more importantly, develops the ability to make their own choices.Margarita speaks Latvian, Russian, English and quite well in Estonian.
