Welcome to Dove International Montessori School

Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorise, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.
— Dr. Maria Montessori

Dove International Montessori School is one of the first private Montessori schools in Kigali, Rwanda. At the DIMS we are committed to a culture that fosters respect and compassion and honors the spirit of childhood, each children's  unique personality and their individual needs.



Our Day Care programme offers very young children unique years of self-development in a safe and tender atmosphere of special understanding, respect and support.
