About Us

The dream of a great place, where children are happy fulfilling individuals has come true. We have started our journey in different countries, at different time, but with one purpose:

​Prepare an environment that can serve the children, help them become independent, well-rounded, capable individuals. 

That’s is the reason why the Montessori professionals have come together to form the Authentic Montessori Preschool: Pirmie Soļi. Our main priority in this transformative education is preparation for life itself.
We believe that preparation for life includes:

Strong emotional, social, behavioral, and moral foundation. Know right from wrong, self-confidence, connection with others, and contribution to the world.

In the “Pirmie Soļi”, we do believe in multilingual communities. This is the reason why your child will work in a multilingual environment with guides speaking in Latvian, English, and Russian.
Our team includes 2 AMI certified teachers and 1 Preschool assistant.
