Mrs. J. Baldassarre believes that each child should be instilled with the love of learning. She feels that each child deserves to be given the opportunity to explore and discover their own passion for learning in their own unique way according to their own pace. Mrs. Baldassarre accepts that each child can and will simultaneously grow within an academic and Montessori environment in which he or she becomes a unique learner. Last but not least, Mrs. Baldassarre believes that learning takes place through concrete academic experiences in all areas of the student’s emotional and social development. Each child should have a sense of security and feel safe within their learning environment and Mrs. Baldassarre knows that RMS can provide this. She is honoured to be a part of your child’s life, to watch her students grow and develop into who they want to become.
