The first Montessori teachers in Latvia has started they path to transformative education more than 30 years ago. They were working with opened eyes, fascinating for new approach to change the life of children. In that time teachers used that method more for children with disabilities and other health or mental problems, therefore, they gained the Help pedagogic diplomas in Munich. During that time, Munich was known for its combined courses for Montessori teachers. They had an opportunity to see how to work both with regular child and child with different disabilities.
