About us
The success of our school is the result of the quality of our program and the mature professional staff we choose, and the realization that all children deserve the greatest respect, loving care, and professional guidance in their development. This philosophy underlies everything we do at school. The task of the teacher in our classroom is more that of guide than that of instructor. This is why the teacher is normally called “directress”. His/her main function is to be a link between the child and the Prepared Environment, by means of which the child has the opportunity to develop his individual potentialities to the utmost.

Ramona Klymko - Owner / Teaching Director Montessori Program

Ramona's first contact with the Montessori Method goes. back to the year 2000, when she was offered to teach the French language in a Montessori School, here in the United States. By that time she had acquired her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Languages (German and English) and had been teaching languages in Europe since 1987. Being in her first Montessori School, she suddenly discovered a new way of knowing, loving and teaching a child. She began to understand the importance of working more fully with the child's urge to learn and the importance of preparing the child, at this very young age, not for school but for life. Ramona successfully mastered the Montessori Diploma in February, 2002 and completed the approved Course of Study and Practical Training of the International Association of Progressive Montessori. Her inner discipline.and excellent. organizational skills made. room for more. Ramona went back to College and successfully completed the Infant and Toddler Program at UCI Montessori. She also completed the Program for the Administration of Schools for Young Children - Personnel, at Irvine Valley College. Ramona's strong belief in the Montessori Philosophy and Education together with her already acquired pedagogical experience and excellent educational background, made it possible to start her own Montessori Program under the name of "Robin Hood Montessori School". Ramona has recently been selected by the International Association of Progressive Montessori to train and become a Montessori Instructor for IAPM. Ramona is looking forward to becoming an instructor and continuing the legacy of IAPM.
