Rainbow Montessori International School (RMIS)
Rainbow Montessori International School (RMIS) is a private institution established under the Montessori philosophy for its early childhood and preschool education. The philosophy of the school is based on supporting the complete development of the child as they progress from birth to adulthood. It takes the broad vision of education as an aid for life.
As a way of teaching, the school offers the view that knowledge is not passively gained by listening to words. Rather, it is gained through experiences in the surrounding environment. Therefore, the method of teaching at Rainbow centers on the approach of a prepared classroom to inspire children towards a life-long love of learning. At RMIS, the prepared classroom covers well structured, ordered, freedom of movement and freedom of choice for each child or category of children between 1-6 years of age.
Within this structured space, children learn through hands-on experiences. What are relevant at Rainbow are the beautifully made learning materials that children work with to make independent learning discoveries. With Rainbow experience, the children are guided in their learning by the teachers, who act as the link between the children, and the prepared environment.
At RMIS, our teacher’s role is to prepare the classroom, and observe and guide their students in their learning. As a result, children progress at their own pace, according to their own abilities. The main philosophy of Rainbow Montessori International School therefore is to ensure that children learn to develop concentration, self-discipline, and a love of learning through a blend of an integrated Montessori environment for its Early Years Learning Program (EYLP) and Ghana Education Service structured system for its lower primary school education and beyond. At RMIS, Early Years Learning Program applies the Montessori way of teaching to help children achieve their full potential. We value each child as an individual, we empower our students to become confident, and motivate them to become independent learners! This is what our curriculum offers our students.
