The Rietberg Montessori School                        
The school was founded in July 1987. It is a licensed Montessori school and a state-accredited day school for children aged 3 – 12 years. The school is situated in the centre of Zurich and occupies two charming Art Nouveau villas, which are surrounded by a large park with mature trees. An ideal place for children to learn and spend their free time.

Day school
The school is open from 7.30 am – 5.30 pm. Kindergarten and elementary school are run on the basis of mixed age groups (3-6 year olds, 6-9 year olds and 9-12 year olds). Depending on the number of children per group, there are two to five teachers present. To ensure that our children can meet the challenges of modern society, the Montessori Method is put into practice in all our classes. We encourage the children to develop independence, freedom of movement, motivation to learn and social skills. The aim is to offer a holistic approach to education.

The school values the arts highly. Emphasis is placed on music, painting, creative expression and drama.

English is an integral element in kindergarten and elementary school. In every class, there are both German-speaking and English-speaking teachers.

Transfer to secondary schools
To ensure that the children are well prepared, the children who are about to transfer to secondary school are given special attention.

Parents’ further education
The school offers parents’ further education on the Montessori Method and on other current topics. The teachers place great emphasis on regular and intensive contact with parents.
