Here is an example of one of over 600 Rebeca Wild based (RWB) schools in Europe. In May 2012, I visited the Lindenschule in Innsbruck, Austria. Steve, a board member and teacher, showed me around the elementary school environment. Here is what I saw…

A beautiful friendly house:

A spacious, natural outdoor play area:

A big dirt and water play area:

A super-inspiring arts and crafts room with plenty of raw materials available:

An elaborate block and pretend play area:

An indoor water play space:

Measuring and mixing containers:

The kitchen prepared so that children can use it independently:

A writing area:

A friendly and inspiring space for math, geometry, and algebra with Montessori and other hands-on learning materials:

Montessori math materials:

Montessori beads materials:

There were even more amazing environments…a huge indoor movement room, separate rooms for the preschool, an outdoor crafting and eating area…The environments are constantly adapted to the children’s genuine needs. Currently, over fifty children are part this school. Here is a link to their website www.lindenschule.at

I hope you are inspired! Let’s create similar schools here in the US! Get in touch!
